Even though it was backhand throws, I think the elbow injury specifically is aggravated by forehand)

He's probably going to leave those for the offseason and cut down on the time/throws I'd imagine.
20 years ago I developed severe arm pump issues (phenomenon in motocross). No real reason. Did some PT work, but really it was just rest that seemed to alleviate it.

In recent years I’ve had other pains and finally had an MRI. Stenosis—the openings for nerves exiting the spine are narrowing or pinching the nerves. I cannot prove that was the original cause, but in hindsight it makes sense.

If I were Simon I’d get that checked out. Might not be the issue, but I’m thinking it’s more common than people realize.

Now THIS is some seriously good disc golf content. Love the fact Simon shows a bit of arrogance here and is not afraid to speak his mind. This is a good watch....

I think having "WEAK" next to Clemons name in the thumbnail is a weak move

I'd classify that as a pretty bold move, far from weak. He's European, and their bluntness can come across as rude to Americans, but underneath that is just honesty if you can thicken up your skin a little.

That was an interesting watch. Not shocked by the top 4 though.

I love how blunt Simon can be.

It was a good watch and interesting.

The impressive and surprising kind of throw a wrench into it.

One that surprised me a bit was Adam Hammes. He's young, he has that lanky build, and he is confident, so I sort of just assumed that he was a bomber. Then a little later, I watched the Drew Gibson practice round where he played with Hammes and Barela and they got to a par 5 and he said that he and Barela could eagle it and Hammes couldn't (he did, but it took 2 full throws and a long putt).

Agree that was a fun vid to watch. I appreciate how genuine Simon is... he’s a competitor and a showman - without taking himself too seriously. Kind of a rare. I would observe that Eagle seems the same. I might add Calvin Heimburg and to a lesser extent Kevin Jones.

(I think Casey White really, really wants to beat Simon, but plays that low key.)

Although he may not showcase it on the course too often, I think McBeth might have a little more distance than Simon gave him credit for.

Example...

I bet that in order to make Simon’s top tier, pro has to make a habit of erring for distance over placement. Paul always errs placement, and that has worked very well for him.

He doesn't just want to... be does.
