Fwiw, when I played with you at the Majestic a couple years ago, I never thought you were slow at all.

Personally, I'm probably right in the middle. Deliberate, but not slow or putzy.

When I play with my dad we are pretty darn slow but it works and I don't mind, how could I, my dad is awesome. By myself or with others I'm pretty quick.

I prefer to play fairly quickly but the last couple of years I've slowed down to mimic the pace of tourney rounds. Has probably benefited my game more than rigorous putting practice.

I'm generally very quick in my moves, even so that my cardmates sometimes ask me to slow down the tempo a little bit, or alternatively ask "could we take a short break"?

I hate when the course is crowded and I have to wait on the tee pads. Feels like I'm wasting my few and far between opportunities to play disc golf (I'm father of two).

I've tried to adjust my rhythm but I can't say that I like it .

I'm going to be brutally honest here. I'm old and fat and sweat like a so & so in this sweltering heat and humidity down here in "paradise", so yeah, slow.

I play as fast as my discs(and the trees) will allow me to.

Though lately, my feet have been adding some time to my game.

During the week I only have time for a quick round so I play very quickly especially if playing solo. ON the weekends I play with my buddies and usually moves considerably slower.

Shot selection, what disc to use, actually moving through the course, I'm usually all business and very efficient.

But when it comes to actually making the throw or putt, I'm more of a Nate Sexton. I'm deliberate and think through my form and visualize my shot before I execute, usually with at least one dry run.

People often speculate that I would play better if I just walked up and threw quickly, but I've found that when I do that my game suffers and I make stupid mistakes.
