Default Interesting News video Ball golf vs Disc golf

I know the Liberty Coach in this video, great guy. Not sure what the exact format was but interesting nonetheless and at the worst at least it gave disc golf some face time.

If someone that knows more than me wants to link the video here then be my guest.......

Nice video. I would have thought the disc golfers had no chance, to only loose by 5 or 6 is impressive to say the least!!

I say they do a rematch on a wooded DG course. Guarantee the ball golfers lose by more than 10.

That's an interesting point, but just illustrates the distinct differences. Give ballers a low ceiling, and narrow tunnel, and they are reduced to a very small number of clubs/strokes. But it's weighted too in the fact that, in a wooded course, there's not many places to land that give you a remotely clean shot. Nor can they bend a ball around a corner 150' out.
It'd be like playing football on a tennis court...

This isn't a good comparison b/c we have no idea the level of the ball golfers or disc golfers. I'd like to see it between a big ball golf pro 7 a big disc golf pro.

I imagine it would be closer or the disc golfers would win on a shorter golf course. We've got one around here that most pros could reach the pin on the drive. That would take away the main advantage the golfers have.

Don't know about the ball golfers but the coach for Liberty's dg team in the video is currently a 972 rated player.
