I use Wraiths for practically all of my distance shots, both backhand and forehand. I carry 4-5 in the bag and practice with a stack in the field fairly often. I prefer metal flake (very hard to find...

I think the question is: how many discs *could* PP move? I think she is uniquely positioned to move a ton of discs, especially if women’s disc golf is able to grow at a faster pace.

I wonder about the details of Paige’s DD contract. Is it possible she had a player option built into it, and she simply decided to opt out? Conversely, did someone buy her out of her contract, or did...

His performance on 18 was surprising to me. He seemed to throw his 2nd and 3rd shots in frustration. It was a little hard to watch, because we’ve all been there—tree in your face, feeling “over it,”...

I played this tournament and agree with you. The fairways are all pretty reasonable—you can just get into big trouble if you don’t execute.

Anyone have any guesses as to what percentage of sold/moved discs are via players packs and am payouts, vs retail?

I’m skeptical that it was an accident it got this way.

If you can put a putter within putting distance on a 350-foot hole, on flat ground, then you have all the distance you need. You should be able to throw drivers about 450, I would guess--so work on...
