Paige has now gone 13th and 10th place in her last two tournaments. . . and her drives of the tee has looked awful the last part of the season.
Wonder if she will spend the of season training or just relax and travel?

Hope to have the Europeans back next year. . .and a normal Paige

I think that's what she's been doing for the second half of the year anyway.

Her game certainly doesn't look either polished or consistent. She certainly always seems to have a reason why things didn't go well, and outside of maybe one instance I can remember, she never places the blame on her own practice or habits outside of a tournament.

I'm also looking forward to the Europeans being back next season.

This is just my opinion, but I started noticing her inconstancies off the tee when she started to throw her lighter weight Passions. If I was in a position to have a custom mold made for me, but then I didn't end up clicking with it, I'm not sure what I would do. Those disc sales help pay her bills. If she doesn't like her own discs or throw them well, it seems like it would be bad marketing. I'm sure there is a lot more to this, but just my observation.

I feel like she shouldn't be throwing fiddly understable stuff with her power game. The Sol, provided it's an atypically beefy one, is probably a good fit for her as a utility disc, but she has a lot of arm speed and spin. Even the Stalker is kind of pushing it imo.

On marketing, I don't see Paul throwing the Hades very often. As long as she throws some of her discs, I think she's fine.

Just stamp something else with a passion stamp and voila, problem solved.

Sounds like Prodigy circa 2013.

After seeing the little tear Kristen Tattar went on after worlds this year I'm hoping she can have a longer stay in 2022.
