It’s not a perfect approach, but I got really tired of unlucky skips I got while trying to hit the middle island. This approach doesn’t lead to a lot of birdies, but does reduce the number of sixes (or worse)

Well... unless I get greedy on shot two and decide to try for something else.
Interesting. I always like hearing different approaches. Give the turn roll disc a shot in practice some time. It's very well suited to that tee shot. I birdie that one probably 80% or more of the time. Maybe not that much, but it's definitely one of my stronger holes compared to the field...

I think my safe play before the turn BP was a Musket at those trees on the left before the ice.

Indeed. He didn't describe it but said it could only be given out with the next version of the game. So I was assuming a new disc

Using the "Elite Series" tournament I won my way into to motivate myself to play for a better rating...

24 pro tour rounds over 6 consecutive tours. 3 rounds in. Been very careful so far, averaging 1060. Just gotta do it 21 more times... Lol

Out of the 32 entrants they're cashing 11. 11th best rating is 1071 (I am 1007 coming in). So I'm looking at the cash line from the outside so far probably.

If I play the way I’ve played the last three days or so in MP, I have no chance at cashing either - and I’ll play myself out of it early. Fortunately, I still have a couple days before I have to attempt the PT rounds this cycle

The big skip / extra glide Ballista Pro is in the shop again today. Get it while it is hot.

*grumble grumble*DROTandrimskipdrives*grumble grumble*

So close to acing second and third holes of today's PT round... And ultimately had a 1020 round that'll plummet me because I was poop the rest of the way....

DGV people, is there a new grail?
Does the Rive go farther than the Ballista Pros?

Furthermore: For some reason, the Grace is a fairway driver in this game. Do you think the Acc/Glide Grace will take the place of Muskets in the future?
