Default How tall are the pros?

Maybe a dumb thread, but I'm just curious because I've never seen them in person. Does anyone know how tall some of the top pros are? Ricky, Paul, Jerm, Simon, Eagle, Sexton, Johansen, Shusterick, etc..? I think PDGA profiles and/or sponsor team pages should list stats like age, height, weight like they do in other sports.

Innova lists their team's heights.

Not all of them.

Educated guesses, Ricky 6'5, Eagle 6'3, Simon 6'2, Jerm 6'6, Stokely 6'7

I think those are pretty close.

Man, that's a lot of height. But at least McBeth is shorter - that site 5QU shared lists him at 5'8, which gives us sub 6 footers some hope. But, then again, he's McBeth

You try to palm a disc like that then tell us how much hope you have left.

Yep, but there's a reason why guys the height of McBeth and Locastro are the exception as touring pros, and not the rule. They are amazing athletes, but length is definitely an advantage when everyone at that level is an amazing athlete too.

How odd. I recall seeing him prior to 2016.
