(I know for certain Miss Finley was in Charlotte on Sunday. She played behind my 3-some at Eastway. Another Lady Pro was with her, but I can't recall her name. Not crazy to think she could be in TN a day after Thanksgiving, but I doubt it was her.
Silly me, she was behind us for the entire round, and I never once turned to watch her throw. I was doing everything in my power to NOT appear to be a fanboy. My good buddy got her autograph on a Lion, though - she seems like an extremely cool individual, and was thanking my friend sincerely for even asking... Good people in DG. That's Truth.)

Gotcha. It's not out of the question for somebody who's highly rated. It's a tough get from that angle and that height even for someone of that caliber. A lefty turnover is probably more likely to park it because it penetrates more instead of stalling. The fact it was done with a putter was all the more amazing as I stood there. It was especially shocking because I assumed he was a newbie until he went into his razor-quick delivery and SNAP.

Nobody I've talked to has indicated they thought it was impossible for a good pro.

You couldn't do that now. The trees are a good bit taller where his putter carried.

Heh, I remember those trees being saplings in 2000 when it was a brand-new hole. That allowed me to deuce it from the long tee with a long throw-in at the Y2K Lumberjack Open. A 58 from the longs, followed by a 58 from the shorts. 950 and 850 rated rounds in one afternoon!

0/0 doesn't count as "never missed"

I asked if he wanted to play through, looked like he was fast, and I figured it was a brand-new player with just the one Disc.

He was a lefty...and WHAM, mashed that putter on a perfect turnover...OVER the trees straight ahead and right at the pin. My jaw dropped to the ground. He quickly thanked me and was on his way to a pickup deuce that I never see anybody achieve with drivers. True, the trees were a bit shorter than they are now. I'm not sure that shot is possible now.

It was a younger guy and I don't really remember anything else that stood out about his looks. (Whenever my wife asks me what color hair somebody has I never remember that sort of thing; I'm such a guy.) I wonder if it was a young Reid Frescura? He's a lefty and from a town a little over an hour away. I don't know if he was playing at this point in time or not.

Best shot I've ever seen on that hole, and I'll likely never know who that was.
You said lefty so it's not Wade

If I played a round, and I was 0/0 from "inside 100 feet"...that would be even more amazing wouldn't it?

Right on. I was really just exasperating the earlier 'Why's it wrong" response to the OP. Sounds like a challenging hole.

I've seen a young lady ripping it just short of 400 feet at Munden Point Virginia Beach #8 long tee. Short basket about 460, and long 610. This would have been Feb 20' and I had only been playing 5 months, saw her out there on #8 twice and within a week, no other hole. Don't remember but very possible she was throwing into a head wind coming off the river straight into the tee. She was practicing on the hole both times with several disc most of them placed around each other and the threat of the river both sides of fairway, its a peninsula hole. She stopped both times to let me play thru, I was able to watch her throw a few both times, it was just jaw dropping. The second time she was still parked on #8 throwing on my second round which would have been an hour later. Haven't seen her since then.

I've always wondered who she may have been? Pro or amateur? I keep looking at FPO video to see if she shows up.

I wondered in an earlier post if it was a younger Reid Frescura? No idea. I took a whole bunch of years off from following the professional game, like 20 years, so there are a whole lot of people between Climo and today's elite players who I missed.

Edit: Now that I think about it, Am Worlds was here as recently as 2015 and maybe that was somebody here practicing for that?

It's certainly challenging from the long tee for non-open players. You really need to get left to have a look at a deuce even from the short, but I think it's an easy par though, and I'm just an Am Masters guy. Toughest hole there is probably #9, and I love it. Pro and Am Worlds was played there in 2008 and Am Worlds in 2015.

What if it were....

Platebee Lady?!?!

Perhaps years of eating off of a disc translated into mad disc skills through the powers of diffusion.
