Watching final round MPO lead card, it was refreshing to see those guys struggle a bit in the wind. The earlier rounds when they were crushing the Jones course were fun in their own way. But it is a little more exciting to see some damage mixed in. Just to know the risks are real, even for the 1050+ rated folks.

You're right, I didn't think to look at that. He only had 5 total.

Kind of like the US Open in golf. Much tougher course conditions keep the winning scores closer to par. It's sort of satisfying to see pros struggle a bit in both sports.

Unless Heather Young can add some distance, it's going to be very tough for her to hang with the rest of that list. Incredible putter though.

Philo is tremendous, however one thing that seems to catch me off guard is the lack of rule knowledge by him and Jerm. I heard him comment at one point that a player would've been better off going out of bounds so they could go back to their previous putting lie, but you are always able to do that (abandon disc rule). Would be nice if they knew the rules extensively to help out those that don't but trust they are correct since they are professionals.

For example, the lost disc rule: There was discussion about whether it was 2 or 3 minutes and when the time actually started. Rules like that (even if they don't often affect touring pros) should be a slam dunk.

Keep up the great work.

If DGCR goes offline in the next few days - it is because you brought her wrath down upon us all.

I have been asked which are the best discs and I always tell them, "the red ones".
