I'm pretty sure my worst shot ever was my very first time throwing off the 'top of the world' at Whistler's Bend (From the top tee, the hole is about 800ft long, and 300ft down). I think I'd been...

Adding to this, I'd also be curious about the round-to-round correlation (i.e. how consistent are individual players on the same hole round after round)?

The Zone, imo, may be the best disc ever made. :) I too would be somewhat tempted to spend the $1300 on just Zones. ;) Only if they had Z Zones, though. ;)

I can't help but wonder if the issue of the Ledgestone only using Discraft as a vendor is partly due to the (very large) size of the payout. I saw their payout estimates.. including a whopping $1300...

I did notice that live scoring briefly showed McBeth with a 7 on hole 18.. which was later switched to a 6. Perhaps that was the (scorecard) error he made to get the +2?
