No I am just saying are the glasses he wears, are they a hinderance to his game?. Could he score lower with better fitting glasses that he can see better from? Visuals are a big part of the disc golf game. I don't care what they look like and he could be wearing glasses that are the sport safety type with strap but prescription seems like it would be a big change to help his game if they are not so scratched and fit his face better.

How can you tell his glasses are all scratched up? Are your new glasses from late 2017 THAT good?

Plus, it's fun to do an impersonation of his voice.

No my glasses are not that good nor in bran new condition.

It is just he has a big scratch in one lens about 3/4 from the bottom of the lens, I forget the side it would be on. It is big and obvious when you see his face closer in on the screen. It is so big I would assume the glasses have all those little micro scratches if they have one really big scratch in a lens like that. This makes me think he might need new glasses, also it seems like he has on a pair that is slightly too big for his head.

I like Andrew as a player, he has a lot going for him, to be the top player in Canada.

I was there to witness Ron Russell's Cyclone roller on Hudson Mills Original #4 that circled the pin at DGLO (1999?). Wasn't that like 480'? I also encountered him and a few other local pros at a picnic table at Addison Oaks just after worlds and got to congratulate him for his '99 win.

I certainly remember the Winnie Crew and got partnered up with all of them on the first card of pro-am tournaments (as the Am obviously) except Avery Jenkins. Feldberg was still an Am like me back then and I played several rounds on his cards in tourneys too. He was always nice to me.

Disc Golf saved my life back then in my turbulent twenties...

No one is getting tired of their media. It's just the handful of people on this board that are tired of seeing all the Discraft posts.
