Default Scott Stokley on tour 2022

I had high hopes (and still do) for Stokley coming back on tour. He put out this video today and now I don’t expect him to make it to a top 10 card. I could be wrong, but he is significantly out of step with tournaments and courses, he seemed surprised at how good Mason Ford’s every other throw was, and he didn’t show any solid putting. CAVEAT: he was only playing with three discs, a Stego, Harp, Stal, plus playing a course blind.


Unless I was doing something wrong, this video is recorded with a 1990 VHS.

I think that is filmed with a potato.

I caught a bit of the livestream yesterday and the weather looked poor. It will be interesting to see how he goes this year. He filmed a round with Simon Lizotte sometime last year at Maple Hill and appeared to play really well.

Without sponsor exemptions he is going to have trouble even getting registered for events until his rating gets over 1000. Glad to see he got in for Vegas. Spelling is Stokely.

Meh, I reserve judgement either way. I watched the first 20 minutes or so. It was entertaining, but not going to watch 2 hours. btw, I see nothing wrong with him saying nice shot, lol. It's only common courtesy.

He is still building his bag, so it is obviously a work in progress.

He has nothing to lose, and I anticipate he'll at least have his moments and get some shots shown on the new modern channels. It's a good story.

I got to watch him in person twice in the '90s with Climo and company and it was like following around rock stars, except that there was no exposure for them. You saw them in person, or you were maybe lucky and got ahold of a worlds VHS tape or something. YouTube wouldn't arrive for the first time until 2005. He was already out of the sport for 4 years at that point.

I suspect the DGPT will get Stokely on some feature cards like they've done with Brodie in the past simply because he's good enough, his tour efforts make for a good story, and he has a track record for drawing viewers.

The 1999 World's, Final 9 in Rochester was put up on Youtube retroactively. It was fun watching Climo, Russell, Stokely, and Schultz. Although I have to admit. We were more interested playing the holes behind the players that we were actually following them along, lol.

I have home footage from Larry LaBond of that exact final 9 that I plan to get up on my YouTube channel one of these days. It won't be a polished professional video like the ones you see from Chuck Kennedy, Just the camera from a guy who played in that worlds following along.

Also on my channel are the ladies, masters, and men's chase card teeing off in front of them on that final 9.
