For sure, I don't know where any "line" should be. In ball golf there's a clear separation between long drive competitions and the tour. But I don't think the DGPT is currently taxing everyone for their longest drive all the time.

The competitors who make it to the top will also have more and more physical advantages and power just to hang.

So it might not matter so much that there are a lot of very long holes, though some injury potential is always there.

I think a lot more of the injuries are course related, but not length related. I'm thinking more like ground composition or teecondition/material.

Seems like it for the acute ones. I guess my worry is a bit about "overuse" ones too. But I'm not sure how big an issue that really is among the top players.

I believe Paul's problems are elementary... he needs to start throwing Innova plastic again. He was crushing everyone that showed up when he was throwing Destroyers.

Then he switched to Discraft and crushed everyone who showed up with that only 8 months later.

It's almost like he could throw paper plates and stay in the hunt...

Washed. What is interesting to me is how much better the fields are and play overall. Just 10 years ago my local course even par was a 1000 rated, now it's 970.

I'm guessing if he had to choose between his lot in life 5 years ago (with Innova) and now, he would still choose now. The foundation, married with property and a McLaren, installing courses in third world countries, and still competing at a high level at the sport he loves.

One thing I have learned in life is you can never look back.

At some point I think all those original discs he spent a long time learning while building his bag in 2019 got cycled out and he began trying to force in more of his own line of discs (Anax/Luna/Zeus/Hades/Malta). All the proto runs seemed to have come out more stable/OS than the latest stock ones and recent course conditions for tournaments have been a bit more extreme wind which he hasn't been getting as much while practicing/testing new discs.

He has a pretty strong track record at Idlewild/European Open/DGLO/Ledgestone courses. Hopefully his putt is on and he feels healthy overall to string together some strong results.

Out on the road today
I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
