James Conrad got last place (out of 8) in his first event throwing MVP during the 2021 DGPT All Star Weekend. He then tied for 11th place in the 2021 LVC the next weekend. If I recall correctly, he had a hard time dialing in his distance drivers, spraying them all over, but everything else was rock solid.

Wold be interesting if Perkins had a role in Simon’s move. Maybe Nate told Clemons and/or Castro.

Of course Steve was the point man. He probably didn’t help navigate Simon through contract negotiations, which is what Nate does now. I was thinking out loud.

What is the big difference, especially in putting? I haven't thrown any gyro disc that I know of---what am I missing? I know, I know, I live in a cave...
