I think that as the population of serious disc golfers gets bigger, the better the opportunities will be to earn a living outside of actual tournament revenue.

I think also think that DGPT finals should be in the list. Worlds, USDGC, and some European Open make sense to me for the first three. After that there are a lot of well-attended NTs that are...

Sexton to me is the most technical player on tour. I think he has the most accurate forehand in the game of 400'+ FH throwers, works the disc equally well L to R and R to L, putts well, and has...

You are misconstruing the context of my post. I said this as the discussion had turned to how far 1030 rate elite players throw. Look at the post I am responding to it is not a post about 1000...

I'm not sure where people get this impression but MJ has plenty of distance. You can watch the 2017 ledstone open coverage and see him park hole 5 (476') with a crank or in the circle left on the...

It has been concretely demonstrated by a number of players at this point that you do not need to ever throw a forehand off the tee to be 1000 rated.

As one of the main people arguing against the short off the tee to 1000 crowd, i don't think that's what's happening at all or at least I'm not confused. When I say 400' minimum, that IS to be a...

As noted in previous posts, its not impossible it is extremely unlikely and the few examples are statistical outliers.

This has nothing to do with an some elitist view of distance or pride. It...

Literally no one is saying that. No one is saying that you can have distance without accuracy and be a 1000 rated player.

To be clear: you have to be a good putter, throw good upshots, throw far,...

Not being a debbie downer at all. People should be realistic if they have a goal of being a 1000 rated player. It is much easier if someone maxes out at 350' to break down their form and improve...

Again Yeti is a putting world champion, so if you submit that the "easiest way to 1000 rated" is to be 5x world putting champion I would have to disagree with you.

There is data on all of this...

You're talking about players that all have great distance, and in that case the separating factors are of course going to be other skills. When everyone has plenty of D off the tee putting, upshots,...

Where are these guys? Name a 350 max guy who is 1000 rated. This player is completely theoretical because he doesn't exist, so to say they "absolutely" can is nonsense.

In theory could a 350...
