DM has Grady Shue and Nate Perkins for example. And a slew of up and coming hotshot youngins. We all know not all of them pan out but when they do (like Eagle) it can be pretty phenomenal.
If I was in any way associated with Seppo, I'd claim I had Finnish ancestry. Just Saying.

Metrix is apparently having trouble keeping up with traffic.
He said he'd be back for Worlds, but not before then. He and Vanessa are both so nice. They've come out to join me for some Morley morning rounds. Always good times

Going to get some blow back, but let DM keep Simon, I'd love to see Innova pick up Eagle. Eagle could still bag DM as needed since Innova makes their discs. Would like to know what Eagle did to mature his mental game fairly quickly the past couple of years. I saw him a little over a year ago have a few bad holes in Arlington, Tx and he was a bit...vocal. lol...

In the spirit of the movie..."Jaws"......"We're gonna need a bigger course."

I wish citizenship were that easy haha. I've tried to claim dual citizenship with Finland due to my grandmother being from Finland but seems impossible haha.

My response was going to be, "or, make the course more technical, like the Vibram (now MVP) Open". But, he is torching that course too. He tied for second last year, two strokes behind Wysocki. I expect he will win it this year.


Looking at the results of the Vibram Open held in August last year, Eagle was rated 1030. Now, he is rated 1042. That is a big jump for one near the top of the standings, placing him just 2 points below McBeth and Wysocki.

I think the issue with the Franz Ferdinand course is a general lack of short obstruction near the baskets. Most of the trouble comes from going too deep on your upshots, which is relatively easy to avoid.

Eagle dominated this tournament, front to back. I’m just curious how many people out there are considering dying their hair blonde and goin vegan.

I'd have to have hair and no. I tried veganism but Mountain Dew and Doritoes get old after a few weeks.

Will this definitely run the same weekend next year (wrapping up July 14)? I talked my wife into going and she's already shopping for flights.
