Lloyd is no more unless he hits that 900 mark.

The other side of the coin, so to speak, is how each manufacturer evaluates the effectiveness and returns on the money spent on their specific pros and their pro teams, although most observers may never know what internal changes were made to financial details in sponsorship programs from year-to-year.

Albert "Bazooka" Tamm has also signed a 3 year deal with Lat64. Congrats to him and a great resigning for Lat64. Tamm's rating has gone from 992 to 1020 in less than a year. He sounds serious about touring full-time in the US as well, so we may get treated to some new celebrations in 2020.

Sorry, to me, slapping ones self senseless with a disc is just as dumb as punching the ground or a tree.

Showing ones frustration can be done in other ways besides testosterone rage.

Probably just an age thing. I was young once and used to act just as badly in some situations, but then again, I wasn't sponsored by any one nor was I being filmed.

Some things you just can't un-see, and for some players, every time I see them I still remember their antics.

I wonder if he got his celebrations from the first Dude Perfect bowling video with Belmo. Of course, I also wonder if they were unique to DP to start.

I like the Nate Sexton single clap for missed putts. Quick, painless, succinct.

Bazookas have no recoil fwiw.

Slapping your leg with a disc doesn't knock you senseless. Punching a tree doesn't either. For the first your thigh stings for a second, for the latter your hand may be broken. Either way no one is knocking themselves senseless. Unless you miss your leg and hit the other head I suppose. That one isn't a thinker in the first place though.

Has any pro said publicly "I'm sponsored by Trilogy" ?
