A big game changer for me was realizing there is no such thing as putting in disc golf and that it's actually a short throw and you want to aim for and hit the pole. I don't think about mechanics at...

Spot on. The talent is there, she can absolutely bomb and has top 5 (maybe number 1?!) combined forehand/backhand distance in FPO. But strokes, especially in FPO on those shorter holes, are won and...

Don't forget some of those trees are a lot taller and thicker too. I don't see anyone going over the top left side on OG #1 long tee like they did 20 years ago that's for sure.

Shaq was notoriously lazy and didn't practice nowhere near as hard over his career as he should have, and his poor shooting and free throw% is a reflection of that.

You could have wider fairways with larger gaps and less random trees on the fairway because you weren't trying to wall off C1 like it's some castle that cannot defend itself.
