No one in the Jenkins family is/was either "elitist" or "abrasive"- genuinely nice people.

Ron Russell deserves way more love than he is getting here.

1 Climo
2 McBeth
3 Barry
4 Doss
5 Feldberg
6 Wysocki
7 Russell
8-10 some combo of Schusterick, Todd, Stokely, Nikko, Anthon, Rico, Moser

Don't forget rollers. Don't want to let them get away with having extra points if they don't have a roller game. While we are at it, let us start dinging these players for not having an OH game because that will soon be a tool to increase standing.

Now, watch some videos of Climo. Dude can put the disc where he wants it to go. he has more control than any players currently on the field and has stayed above a 1020 rating, even with his advanced age, using only BH. Dude deserves respect and credit for what he was able to accomplish, and for the inspiration that he brought to players like PMcB et al.

Barry actually has a really good roller game. And I have definitely seen Climo throw some.

Just on road warrior status alone you can't leave out Hosfeld. I forget how many miles Greg's VW had but it showed up everywhere. And he's got a Worlds victory also.

Two of the best, most clutch roller shots ever were put down by those two back-to-back on the old hole 16 at Winthrop Gold during the 2003 USDGC. Really where the "battle" began...Barry had tied it up on the previous hole, so he went first on 16 and rolled a beauty. Climo stepped up next and put one within feet of Barry's. Both got the birdie, starting a streak of consecutive birdies for the pair that didn't break until the 10th hole of the playoff when Climo parred hole 18 to lose.

After all these years hearing about it, I still haven't seen the playoff. It sounds like McBeth and Rick in Portland times ten.

Duval
I should probably add women to that list also!
King
Korver
Pierce
Jenkins
Reading
O'Cleary

They released a home video for the tournament (either VHS or DVD, I can't remember). I know I own it though, I'll have to dig around and see if I can find it. Shocking that it hasn't been digitized and put on Youtube by now.

I might be biased since I was there in person, but I don't think McBeth and Wysocki in Portland holds a candle to Barry and Kenny. Barry birdied his last 14 holes in a row...tied it on 15 (now 16), 16 (turned into wetland preserve), then 17-18-18-1-17-18-1-17-18-1-17-18. Kenny birdied 12 in a row in the midst of that. And those aren't simple birdie holes under normal circumstances, let alone do or die in front of a few hundred people.

McBeth and Wysocki might have been in front of a bigger crowd, and live on the internet, but there were some pars mixed into that playoff. They weren't playing flawlessly just waiting for the other to blink like Barry and Kenny.

He still has the ability to do this. I get moving to Masters, but I miss seeing him on videos. With Marty moving to all-Prodigy years back, all that is gone now. It was great watching him whoop up on the Charlotte youngsters like he was strolling casually through the woods.

Incorrect... Uli won AmWords in 2006 as seen here: 2006 AmWorlds Results

I agree he's not near being on this list... just correctly stating he did win.
