He might not win, he just shows up and does well. Like if it's a major or NT you could count on him in the top 10

Why are you in here if you are annoyed?

What’s with people in here dumping on threads they don’t like? No one made you click it. If you don’t like it stay TFO!

I've proven it to my self time and time again; I play better with fewer molds/discs.

My personal best on two local courses was playing with 4 discs in hand, no bag!

I have more fun when I play well and in control.

I do not however have fun playing with some guys who have their fun with full bags because, the group usually spends a lot of time looking for their discs because they don't seem to really know how they fly and they always have some excuse for it's less than intended flight.

Wow, does that really happen? Like, every time you play with guys that have full bags you don't have fun?

Note how Keller uses the word "some," where you substitute the phrase "every time." Not the same thing.

"I do not however have fun playing with some guys who have their fun with full bags..."

Ahh, only 'some guys' make it not fun for Keller. Makes sense now.

Personally I think Keller is green and steals Christmas gifts from innocent little children. At the very least, he's easily annoyed.

Bah humbug!

I'm extremely annoyed at stupidity.

And yes, too me, Christmas is the apex of stupidity.

I've had similar experiences on all accounts. My personal best round on any course was with 6 discs. My best on a few courses was with 3 discs. Sadly, when I was younger to the sport, I was also the guy who had 20+ discs in my bag that was constantly looking for one in the rough.

For me, 6 discs seems to be the magic number. If I add 1 disc for that "one hole that needs it", inevitably I put too much pressure on that shot and screw it up.

What does that have to do with anything? A poster was using Doss as an example of why it pays off to go for a simple bag. I countered the argument by saying that Doss doesnt win a lot of tournaments. One could even argue (although not justified) that his minimalization is causing him to lose tournaments. Doss and Philo are not proof that mold minimalization pays off.

That said, I shot my personal best on my local course just using a single disc (Envy). Beat my old PB by two shots yay

Hey, people gotta sell discs to the full baggers and electronics to everybody. I got a sweet black Friday deal on a Pixel3 xl that I'll use to about 10% of it's capacity. 'Tis season.
