Bubba definitely reps DG occasionally! Sadly I think dechambeau had already shifted his thoughts to the ball golf course when he referenced Bubba (talked about hitting the ball). Would have been sweet to get a story about both of them at one of those cool Augusta-area courses though.

Wonder which one he played!

I'll wager that Bryson isn't stupid enough to believe that a 15' putt in golf is just as challenging as a 15' putt in DG.

But there are some on DGCR that are that dumb...

I for one hope he follows Brodie's path instead of oldmanbirdiemachineconvert's

Sounds like it was The Players Course @ Lake Olmstead. In the interview he mentioned playing around a lake near here, and it is real close to Augusta National, and a Dad posted on Twitter he and his sons ran into BD at Lake O.

If only he had played Pendleton King, then we could have gotten him to write a review!!

Probably a good thing he didn't start out at the IDGC!!

If I'm not mistaken Olmstead borders Augusta National. One thing I know I'm not mistaken about, more leeches in that lake than anywhere I've experienced. About ten years ago I picked over a hundred off my legs from the knees down after a five minute wading session. BTW don't forget to look between your toes.

For the folks who like too compare disc golf to ball golf...
Bryson DeChambeau, 8 career PGA wins, $24 million in earnings. Bubba Watson, 12 career PGA wins, $46 million in earnings.
Pretty similar I would say.

Tom is local and active on facebook if you do that, he'll answer pretty much anything ya ask and will talk your ear off....love the guy and have been fortunate enough to play many rounds with him. Our club claims to be the oldest active frisbee sports club around, formed in 1976, and has some pretty notable people who are members.

Here's a good article to get ya started. Make sure to google some names from the pics, Victor especially.

Local newspaper article about Tom

That should get ya started. Our (rarely updated) website is here.

"MLB star Christian Yelich named his stakes for accepting the disc golf challenge presented to him by MMA fighter-turned-boxer Ben Askren."
