Bad timeing for Paige to go on the "discgolf tourist" thing just after her new contract

She need to throw her new putter and bag. .not take a break
How do you know what she "needs" to do? You don't know what her day to day routine is, do you?

She's been off the tour now for 4-5 weeks. You think she hasn't spent that time playing and throwing? She posted the other day on her Instagram stories a video evidencing her first ace with a Discraft disc since re-joining them. She said that it was her first actual round since the change but that she'd been throwing in the field a few times already.

A couple weeks doing the disc golf tourist thing in Croatia, which involves playing disc golf BTW, isn't bad timing. She's got almost three months after that trip before the tour season begins. Plenty of time to work on her game. That's assuming that a player of her caliber needs thousands of repetitions with new discs to "learn" them and be good with them. (she doesn't)

ok "need to" might be a bad choice of words. . .but again English words are not my strength

She said on Smashboxx that she first got her hands on her new putter on Friday. . and they will tweek it some more
So if Discraft are not tweeking it and send her putter to Croatia for feedback it might be a month or two before her putter is 100% done
Sounds hard to make a new putter and then learn it before the season starts. . the rest of the disc o probably easier to lern

Without the beer talk, we're left with Jolt talking to himself?

I think it is the way Jolt makes statements or asks questions that make the person answering become defensive. It is as if Jolt is passing judgement on disc golf companies and players. I hope it is because English is not Jolt's first language. Here is a perfect example of a Jolt judgement statement:

The highlighted statement implies that Innova was not helping Eveliina. Even though Eveliina Tour discs were available for sale in the US and Europe specifically to help Eveliina to play more....even BEFORE she won the Memorial.







Which brings up this loaded question: Does anyone here know if (INSERT NAME HERE) has stopped beating his wife?
