I've only been paying attention to pro disc golf for the last couple of years. What's the scoop on this Geisinger guy? I've read his name before, so I assume he must be pretty good, but don't know anything about his game. Took a couple years off and is now getting back into it more seriously? Think maybe I read that he has a big arm. Is he gonna be like Gurthie?

Yes, he has a big arm. He beat Simon in the 2015 USDGC distance contest with a 739 foot throw. He is probably a better putter than Gurthie. He plays mostly local events in Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. A shoulder injury kept him from playing last year and I don't think he is 100% yet.

He’s a big time thrower like GG who can go on a tear and put up some great scores. Not a super refined game because I don’t think he’s been playing for a super long time(compared to many pros) but he’s fun to watch. Has had some injuries that have kept him out of as much action as he probably deserves.

I watched Geisinger in the final 9 of the 2017 Mad City Open. It’s an A-Tier in Madison Wisconsin. He beat Cale and Adam Hammes to take home first place. I watched him throw over 600’ with a Destroyer backhand. His sidearm distance is at the very least 450’, if not farther. The dude can crush. As others have said, he just doesn’t play in that many tournaments.

At 7:50 Drew Gibson says Geisinger throws farther than him, McBeth, Wysocki, Sexton and Matt Dollar. Alex out drives all of them on the first hole.

yea, you got it. he had a few putts that "would have gone in if there were chains there!" but guess what dude... they aren't. i was very happy and humbled to have the opportunity to play with him but hearing him trash the course and event repeatedly was not fun

edit: pretty pumped to see that AG is on team discraft now! he seems like a good dude

He's a pretty public Vikings fan, but I guess we don't have to hold that against him

I’ll hold it against him out of respect for my Lions, who have done nothing to earn my respect lately (my entire life). Luckily, I’ll never be a bandwagon or fair weather fan.

At least you don't have the humiliation of living in the same city where the Falcons are.
