he may surpass one Dustin Keegan, but he will NEVER come close to the disc golf acumen of the three MicroKeegans.

But...if you only have shot 1000 rated rounds, you're 1000 rated? So isn't it the same thing?

That is typically how an average works

I think most people would want a sample size of larger than 2 to determine how "good" a player is, but I get it that the PDGA can give you a rating after only 1

If Eagle were to put weight on correctly for his sport, kind of the same as some pitchers in MLB that have more muscle on them then just the full on rail thin pitchers is what it might look like.

My guess is Eagle is probably pretty happy with where he's at. How much further does he need to throw. I wish I could throw half that lol.

I dunno. Its accelerating a 175g piece of plastic up to speed. Explosiveness, not strength. Hes got all the leverage he needs from proper form, thus getting all of his body into it.

Are you ru4por? That is who I was responding directly to - so again, spoke only for myself.

One cannot have power without strength. Look how jacked Olympic level sprinters are and they are only accelerating themselves. Look at climbers, they are also jacked... or gymnasts; super jacked

.


To have power, one must have strength first.
