Barsby might have the best touch, technical FH. What he can do with an Eagle is just straight sorcery

Eagle is growing on me. Seeing how he played at Vegas was awesome, he's matured as a player. Still can't stand watching Simon though

Nobody answered so I will.
No I don't agree. I think it adds a level of decision making to the green. It isn't any harder to make the putt, however it significantly raises the stakes on a miss. Would you still dislike them if they used a feature to make it taller rather than having a tall pole? Say a dirt mound or boulder.

Similar argument for what I call "arbitrary ob". Some people hate the roped off OB, would they hate it still if it was a sidewalk, creek or rock wall in the same place. In spite of what I call it I like it and use both stake lines for OB & raised baskets on my personal course.

At least he still had a drop in and didn't roll in the water. It seems obvious Discraft decided they didn't want the straight-on putting rejection (maybe from those cross-links?) which caught aces better.

Barsby's forehand seems slightly unconventional to me, for some reason, but yes his touch (and distance too... he might give Eagle a run for his money...) is amazing. It's interesting to see guys like Ricky, Jerm, and Sexton gradually going away from the forehand, while Eagle seems to be doing the opposite. He really seemed to be trusting his forehand on round 2, and it surprised me on some more open holes where I would have expected a backhand.

Glad to see him doing well. Seems like he got some mental rest and it did him good.

Sending the crush boys to Switzerland for the boot camp really seems to be paying dividends early on B-)

Eagle looks like he is tossing a beach frisbee to his friend and the damn thing goes 400ft on a pure hyzer.

im not biting your head off btw

but what if all baskets were raised? difference in round scores?

sure.

well placed baskets? i can f with.

i can appreciate a few "dirt mound" baskets, but artificially making them is wack beyond my comprehension

Wow, this really has become Paige's tourney.

But how about Lisa Fajkus. I feel like she doesn't get mentioned enough. If she can hone her driving skills more, look out.
