Winthrop Gold favors lefties, I think. Didn’t say it was easy for anyone, but it favors a LHBH and RHFH.
Not sure what Chris and Nathan think.
As a lefty, this this this!!!

Most holes finishing right shape more for a turnover RHBH or flex RHFH than they do for the typical straight then fade of a LHBH flat shot.

I cry about this but realize LHBH is the expection so have grown to accept it.

Just came in to say, I'm very impressed with Spin's post production. JT & Champ in the booth is a good combo. I love Jomez & CCDG and Spin is releasing a product of equal quality at this event!

It seems really important to go beyond just making disc golf available; we want to make disc golf more INVITING for girls and women. The secret sauce that will multiply these inviting efforts is to have a female player or group of players who inspires girls and women. There have been great champions and inspirational women in the past, but they played before our social media time and before the skyrocketing media efforts of Jomez, Smashboxx, Central Coast, and others. There's a group of women now who play an inspiring brand of disc golf and the media is in place to take it to the world. Paige and Kristen are two of those women and the Winthrop Arena Course will hopefully provide the showcase that engages the fans on an emotionally inspiring level.

Glad to answer questions as time allows. Hope you are well.

This is so encouraging. Though it makes Innova’s refusal to give Val Jenkins signature discs even more baffling.

I think a decent amount depends on your internet connection and setup of devices. A few months ago I was living in a place with DSL and my PS4 hooked up to my TV would play things without stuttering while the same thing chromecasted would have trouble. Now that I am in a place with like 50mbps down, the casting works flawlessly. Same devices but wildly different results based on internet speed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I disagree. Jamie is doing a video broadcast, not radio. Less is more. Let it breathe. If he did what you're asking, he's be bombarded with "you talk too much" comments.

Jamie, great job with first round edited coverage. I really enjoyed it. My only constructive criticism is for the little nuggets and tidbits that pop up (which are sweet) stay up just a little longer. I'm talking another 0.5-1.0 seconds. Again, well done.

Not the only time either when it was too tight. Filler, filler, filler, now heres Simon -> disc in air 1 sec later

Or if its a switching problem and you dont see it either before they cut to it, then bigger issue

Maybe he's trying something different to see if it helps. I'd be surprised if he drops out.

Not sure you understood what I was requesting.

I am not asking for more talk, or having them describe what happens on the screen, I can see it WHEN I am looking at it. But my eyes will not stay glued to the people on the couch because I can listen to them while doing other stuff. But when they see the next player getting ready to throw (especially the first throw on a hole, and doubly especially after a lengthy walk or pile up), could just add one more sentence "...and as Simon is getting ready on the tee, I just want to yada yada" keep going on what you were just saying, finish the thought, go to live video, profit.

Standard practice, and it was something that stood out to me several times. Cant recall having had that happen as frequently with DGPT/NT coverage, FWIW.
