I saw that in the background in the video coverage. Yes, a very nice thing to see.

On another note, is Catrina tiring out as rounds and tournaments progress? She seems to be in good shape, but she drops strokes towards the end of rounds and tournaments. It would be no loss of face for her to have a caddy to lug that huge bag she carries, or get a Zuca (or other brand) cart.

Nope. Some are, some aren't

Just too amateurish for me to be interested.
I can see most of this stuff on a Sunday morning doubles league.

When the FPO actually looks like a group of "Pros" I'll be more interested.

Sorry, nothing against women in disc golf or coverage, I just don't find them interesting to watch.

For what it's worth,
I hate watching pro men's baseball
Love watching collegiate women's softball!

I'm just the opposite, FPO is about all that I watch. Because there are fewer of them, it's easier to be familiar with the top players, and I just like to watch their approach to the game. Although I understand why it isn't, I wish that their payouts were more comparable with that of the male players.

As a 940 ish rated player, I too prefer to watch the FPO on most occasions. I am NEVER going to throw a Paul like round. I will, and often do, throw a Paige or Cat like round.

same here. In fact, I don't throw with much distance. My approach is similar, I have discovered this season, to Lisa Fajkus. I try to place my shots to give me a chance for par and the occasional birdie/birdie run.

I have found that the strategy in the women's game overall has helped me in my shot selection. One thing I wish we could know is what disc is being thrown, FPO or MPO.

Anyways, I am hoping to see Cat return to the form we saw 2 years ago. I do think the FPO division is slowly gaining strength but right now, Paige seems to have everything going her way.

Just an observation, I noticed she is no longer married and I'm guessing that had to have taken a toll on the course. Based on her public posts the past few months, it looks like she has been doing great and her play seems to reflect that. (15/21 events top 3 with 10 wins )

Think she is locked into Prodigy? DD has 2 Paige's, maybe Innova could use 2 Allen's? :P

I'd be surprised if she left Prodigy, but she's gotta be seeing all those Innova women with Tour Series discs and wondering if she could make more with Innova. Time will tell...

Things I’ve learned from DGCR:

1 - Dudes, getting married messes up your game.

2 - Ladies, getting unmarried messes up your game.

3 - Valarie left Innova ‘cause they don’t support women in disc golf.

4 - Catrina should play for Innova ‘cause they support women’s disc golf.



Thank goodness. All is right with the world.
