OMD has no skills to shape shots and needs wide open fairways. Sad.

He can't putt either and wants it to be harder for everyone else. Double sad!

Hamster can't even throw out of his shadow. He can't putt either which is why he's scared to see a properly sized non gigantic basket.

Also has the inability to speak in anything but generalities with nothing to back up anything he has to say. Also has the inability or unwillingness to provide any semblance of a design for his smaller basket or any pictures of this course he is allegedly building - which as far as I am concerned is complete BS.

I'm NOT building a course. That was that other dude, ballgolfconvert or whatever that claimed that. I said I was but was clearly joking, like I said I would have a 4 foot wide 600 foot fairway with roped off OB every ten feet. I thought it was obviously a joke.

Also kind of interesting if you didn't watch. Oakley and Joel Freeman are small basket purists or disciples. Uli and Hokum looked to be on the fence but not against it. I actually think most pro's would be for it.

If you tell McBeth he has a 5% chance to birdie a hole then I will simply have to conclude the hole is based on lots of luck and not only skill.

Sure skill is required STILL to hit the initial line but after that then you are playing plinko and hoping to get through.

Watch round 2 from Myrtle. Watch Maine. Pittsburgh had a few holes that were silly.

Can we not agree that bad holes exist? Obviously they do and quite often.

Bad holes can be the other way too. Holes like a wider open 550 foot par "4". Most the field ends up with birdie. Players drive, maybe 1 has a long eagle look. They pitch up and tap in. Snooze fest.
Ok ill go check the stats for all the DGPT holes this year and see if any hole was not birdied. Could you please name a disc golf course with 18 perfect holes and no filler/boring holes?

Ironhill and WR Jackson I think may come close. I'm sure there are a bunch others I haven't played or seen on video or remember off the top of my head.

Again I truly think the problem is the basket though. Because putting is super easy now the long game has to be super hard and bordering on mostly luck. Other option is the polar opposite, not enough trees so basket is in the open, 500-650 foot par "4" and it's just a routine drive and pitch up. To counter act that ropes and raised baskets get installed. Why not just simplify everything and be done with it.

It's got to be hard to grab a disc with Hamster feet too.

Please take your meds. Someone, somewhere has to be concerned.

If the entire long game is luck, how do you explain that the top 8 players all finished top 16 in C2 GIR? Are they more skilled or luckier than everyone else?
