The logistics are the tough part... I had wanted to make a run at it at about the same time Mike Sale made his 1300+ run. I'm convinced I could hit 1500+ on a course averaging 150... But I absolutely could not organize the support crew. I still can't - I barely organized 4 people to help me move a pool table last weekend. All props in the world to absolutely anybody who can organize crews of people, it is beyond my talents.

I needed my daily reminder that people on the internet can argue about anything. In disc golf circles, length seems to really strike a nerve.

Like I said - it matters here because when holes are under 100 feet you remove the disc golf skill aspect from the record. Train up a decent ultra-runner for a week with a few putters and this record gets owned as long as we can use holes under 100 feet.

I think Chris Woj has a point... at some point, this becomes the DG equivalent of putt putt. When people ask me about DG, I describe the line shaping aspect of the game and explain that it entails working over/around obstacles.

While I applaud the sheer stamina, individual, and team efforts involved, the most runs at this record have been boiled down essentially a couple of aspects of the game; upshots and putts. While they are important aspects of the game, outside of this specific context, no experienced player would say "this is indicative of the game."

If the holes are going to pint sized, maybe they should at least go to Bullseye type baskets.

I agree adding more holes into an already existing course it's gets so slippery.


https://www.dgcoursereview.com/mobil...se.php?id=6442 Here is my course. There is about a 150' walk from hole 9 to tee 1. I would have loved to added an extra basket in between that, but that wouldn't have played the course as it was designed.

Again, I'm not bashing this. It's a tremendous feat to anyone who does. I just don't want this slope to get more slippery than it already is.

Looks like the final tally was 3105 holes, with 20 aces. Not bad work.
I tip my cap to him!

I have to say the Tiki course looks très cool and fun as hell! There are obstacles, trees for bad kicks, line shaping. The holes may be short, but it's still DG... a great choice for making a run at this record.

For the math geeks out there...

The total tee to pin distance for all of his holes played was 53 miles.

90.1 average feet per hole.

1 hole every 28 seconds.

This whole time I didn't know we were talking about Sale.

Jeez... Glad to see that he's doing well
