I lean toward Geisinger. I also think if you sent him to the desert he could make a run at the distance record.

Played with Geisinger once and his forehand is legit. There's a hole at dretzka winter course (Milwaukee ) towards the end. Up hill plays a little more then 400 ft( I have 400ft of power and never have reached the pin). Nothing really in the way to force any kind of shot just a pure distance shot atleast for us mortals. We get to this hole and he says "this is a forehand hole". Knowing his backhand distance I'm thinking you are out of your mind. He pulls out a 150 destroyer and parks it with a forehand pretty much on a hyzer. Full flexing shot I would not doubt his forehand is over 500ft. That guy is the most talented golfer I have witnessed.

in 1996 i watched Rodney Goad throw a beat up Cyclone pin high on a 535' wooded hole. most amazing drive i have ever witnessed in person. there is a random youtube video with a guy talking about Rodney's forehand but i can't seem to find it now. Rodney is on some fairly recent East Tennessee tournament videos, but it isn't the best filming. guy could bomb.

My buddy played with him at Des Moines Challenge a couple years back and he parked a blind hole that was about 480ft. Actually skipped under the basket and went long, according to spotter. The disc ALMOST flipped to flat from a hyzer, but never really got completely flat.

Yeah I remember meeting Scott a few years ago and man he is a BIG dude in person. I'd imagine in his prime he could absolutely bomb just by sheer physical size/strength.

Nobody has mentioned Lance Brown out of North Carolina, he can rip, has to be in the top 10 forehand.

Out of curiosity, do you remember the course and/or hole? Ewing? I'm from Des Moines

Pretty sure JC Kester is on the list. Dude can bomb 400+ Ft. Overhand and Forehand is his main throw of choice.

I double checked with my buddy and looks like I got courses mixed up. This was at CCO on the East course, hole 11. The distance listed is 468ft and he went long.

Video of the hole being played is here: https://youtu.be/-o9AI41Bo7s?t=1846

Starts at 30m46s if the link didn't take you there

Edit - I do remember my buddy also telling crazy tales of Geisinger bombing at Ewing or Pickard. 500+ ft backhand shots on pure hyzers.
