Wink Has Paige Pierce peaked?

Just kidding. Obviously, Paige Pierce is a disc golf machine out there.

After watching the W.A.C.O. event this past weekend, I'm wondering if she can be stopped at all this year. Can, or will, anyone give her any competition for an entire tournament?

The only hope for others I can see is tournaments in the woods. Paige excels in the open game with her power. On tight fairways, she can hit a tree or two like the rest of us.

Should be a fun year, but I hope some other ladies step up and give her some competition...

Paige, unlike Paul or Ricky, has no equal. She can only lose to herself.

I think it will play out much like last season where she converted 22/26 starts into wins. That being said, she should have lost in WACO, that was a serious collapse by Hokum coming down the stretch and again on 18. The courses like that that have several short technical holes mixed in at least give the other women a fighting chance.

In WACO, Paige hunted down Sarah, chipping away at Sarah's lead in the 3d round. That's what makes Paige so tough to beat... no lead against her is safe.

As to the collapse towards the end, yeah, Sarah's putting accuracy took the train to Albuquerque, and that tee shot on the last hole was a disaster. Not as shameful as the Atlanta Falcons's dishonorable humiliation in the Super Bowl, but yes, a bad collapse.

Well she still has a lot less competition than Climo did. When's the LPDGA happening?

Paige is definitely the most athletic women's open player. Just a lot more explosive off the tee than any of her competition. I think that has a lot to do with her dominance. She's probably a lot happier with DD so that probably will keep things consistent.

I've always seen baseball as the mainstream sport that translates closest to disc golf in terms of mechanics. It would be great to see former competitive softball players move to disc golf and compete. If you ever watch college softball it's crazy how athletic those players are. Until then, the division is Paige's.

If it was up to the PDGA, never. It has as much chance as an ADGA.

^SD just wanted to get the jump on it and not wait, as with the Shoestring thread. Just don’t forget to use the Search function if/when the time does come.

I agree with what most have said. Paige crushes and putts better than anyone she competes with. Hokom has had her putting struggles but she was on at the WACO and still found a way to lose to Paige in the end.
