Well...uh...that was self defense, your honor.

I've played with a few people that when they don't like their shots also don't like watching them. Then ask, "Where did it go? I wasn't looking".

Neither was I...

If you want to know where it came from for me, its from being a fast player when I practice and just wanting to get my bag and get to my shot. I try and play events and practice the same way, so it's just habit at this point. And if you notice I generally do look back for my shot when I get off the tee. Carry on now

I'm guessing you move pretty swiftly through casual/practice rounds so your speedy flow makes total sense (I like to play fast too and don't like sitting around much).

How do you deal with such long backups during tournament play? Anytime I get in that situation I have a tendency to get 'cold' after sitting around for several groups.

I think it's super strange, but that's his style. I think most people enjoy watching their discs fly, but he's just meh about it .

It makes nooo difference.

This was from the Mad City Open, MJ just chilling sitting on his bag and playing with his phone:

That short putt right side spit out in the playoffs at Mad City was hard to watch, wish I'd have looked away too!

I'm a fan of your style MJ, congrats on great golf at the Vibram.

Was there a question in your mind as to whether you or Bradley were out in the fairway of hole 1 before the final upshots?

Did Bradley seem less friendly than most high level competitors you've shared a final round lead card with?

Thanks and congrats again!

I've seen "arrogant" and "Michael Johansen" in the same sentence. DGCR has officially jumped the shark.

*packs up*

*goes home*

*runs into wall b/c I'm not looking where I'm driving*

I practiced for a long time on this by using timers. So, when I get to a tee I will set it for a minute and not touch my discs or anything towards my shot until it goes off. On upshots I usually do 30 seconds. It helps to break up the flow and make you get used to not being able to just walk up and throw
