I don't know if he had a way of knowing people was there but going over O.B. on a hole where most of the time player don't go that route, it sure would have been better to make sure spectators are aware (and also not inbound). I wasn't there so I don't know.

Still he had a 6 strokes lead at the beginning of the final 9 so he did many mistakes before that bad luck.

It's still annoying seeing spectators inbound ahead of players no matters they get hit or not.

"It's still annoying seeing spectators inbound ahead of players....."

Occupational hazard. If you want to "grow the sport" and support professional players you need spectators. If you have spectators, that's where many of them will be.

Might be a woman from your neck of the woods up there too.



Well I guess she's from Finland but close enough

ment to say "feature card" . . but yes, it΄s fun to see Eveliina play more in the big events

Finland is close to Sweden and the Nordic countries have a friendly rivalry but is usualy quite nice to each other. . (well NOT when we meet Finland in ice hockey and Norway in cross country skis )

Good stuff.
Agree that Eagle's commentary was good. And props to Ian, who IMHO is the very best in drawing out the best from his color commentators.

I did think it was curious how Eagle kept talking about McBeast being with Discraft... "first sanctioned throw with Discraft"... "first sanctioned round with Discraft"... and Eagle really seemed to know all of Paul's discs very well. Interesting that a Discmania-sponsored player really brought up Discraft so much...

In the R3 commentary, on whatever that short downhill hole is, Eagle mentions that he actually used to throw a lot of Discraft, presumably pre-sponsorship. He mentioned that he personally didn't like how the Predator felt for forehands, for example, and perhaps that's why Paul wasn't throwing them either. Definitely a tidbit on Eagle I hadn't heard before.

Well I think it had a lot to do with the card. Three of the four players were sponsored by DC. Also if I remembered correctly Eagle said he threw DC before being sponsored by Discmania. I liked that even though he is sponsored by a different company he is still knowledgeable in other manufacturer's discs. Really impressed with Eagle's commentary overall.
