Honestly this is where we need the sport to go. The USGA sends officials to rate slope on every course. I think the PDGA should invest in this type of thing. Have every course officially "sloped",...

Hah hah! :p

But seriously, BRP is a top 20 course without a doubt, not "just a 4", one of the best courses in the world. Probably not 6... but blazerico is blazed.

Bryant Lake gets a lot of drive by love but for the locals it is known as a pretty easy course. Lots of easy scoring holes make your impression of it go down over time. I don’t know many locals that...

I really wish the VQ comparisons would go away. VQ is all hype. Lumping it in with BRP reduces BRPs greatness.

Although I will say that BRP gets such a huge bump from its signature hole, and if...

I wouldn't shop at PIA if you want good prices. I always feel like I am buying a bootleg out of a NYC back alley. Really that business is the sux.

It is a significant difference if you are a pro level player and you can pull off those shots. No way a touring pro can sustain sub 400' power without otherworldly putting skills. But for the rest...

They have come up but did you bother to read the OP? Clearly not a pro, and advice that he should get into the 400' max D "sweet spot" is not good advice just so he can have a couple looks for a...

My point is that even for big arms, landing circle 1 from 400' doesn't happen very often.

The original comment was literally about birdie percentage as a function of distance. Don't try to straw man me here.

As for how much difference that 10% makes, I mean, no this little difference...

The stats have been posted multiple times, paging Chuck Kennedy. The problem is that "most have a good chance" doesn't convert to "most get a birdie", it converts to 10% get a birdie.

I think Simon would say if you aren't breaking 500' you aren't throwing right. Back to the field, let us know when you get the hang of it.

I believe this notion is false. The statistics on how pros score on 400' wide open holes is pretty bad. Yeah the top 10 disc golfers in the world are converting at a higher rate, but they are also...

Can we seriously address this point? Is there any reason to "reform" my hop step into an x step? Or is it all the same provided you wind up bracing and weight shifting correctly?
