We don't know what kind of medical insurance he has (or if he has any at all). Plus he's young and dumb. All of us go through that stage in life.

since i don't play tournaments or usually play in really windy conditions i hadn't given that much thought.

the next time the wind is howling i'll be out at the basket with a few overstable drivers seeing how that works. might just save me a stroke now and again.

my neighbors will know i've went completely over the edge then.

Watch some FPO coverage...again. FPO putting across the board for about 98% of the players is still lacking imop. Some of those players could have easily moved up the board dramatically by nailing more of those 20ft and in putts.

One of the best parts of the Johnny disc golf interview with McBeth was him thinking he won $4,000 when he really won $4,500. Or maybe he just rounds down to the nearest thousand now.

I was playing with my group one day and the wind was really strong on an open course. I had my Star Gator with me, and used it for putting in that wind; still, my overall score was ten throws worse than my average score on that course.

So yes, try a Zone, Harp, Gator, or even a Banshee if that's what it takes to cut through the wind...

Agreed. I also noticed that Hailey Dean (I think that was her name) foot-faulted a lot, stepping over the line on tee shots. Never called, of course. I didn't see Catrina foot-fault, though maybe I just missed it if she did.

i have carried a Pig since they came out for normal headwind situations where my normal slightly nose up putt with my Sole would rise way too much. works really well thrown dead flat and chain high.

i was thinking of the times when i was questioning if i should be playing at all (gust over 20 MPH). just something i never practiced and i am gonna find out what currently is in my bag that might just save me a "stupid" stroke.

Or he just doesn't like Ledgestone and didn't feel like toughing it out through a weekend of poor weather on a course he dislikes. If World's wasn't in Peoria this year, I can almost guarantee he wouldn't have even come to Ledgestone at all.

I just saw a video posted on Reddit of him crushing a disc at Tyyni today. Looks like the shoulder healed up pretty quickly.
