It's wide open now.

...f$&k sakes. I'm gonna go watch first round jomez coverage.....
People like being negative.

The coverage looked solid when the UDisc guy showed me the test run unfortunately I wasn’t able to enjoy it being on the course.

McBeth opened the door and I’ve seen larger leads shrink quick on the last day or even last 2 holes. Johne was up 5 or so going into 17 I believe. Should be a great day and fun to watch!

Can anyone explain how Jeremy Koling took an 8 on a 371' par 3? I'm imagining an OB right drive (though that wouldn't make sense for a RHBH), then into the water... twice? Or just OB water 3 times somehow?

Udisclive says 3 OBs and 3 circle2 putts. Hole 6's OB are limited to previous spot or drop zone. Drop zone is about 45' away, looking directly at the water.

I'd guess:
1 - Drive, OB
2 - penalty stroke
3 - Putt from drop zone, OB
4 - penalty stroke
5 - Putt from drop zone, OB
6 - penalty stroke
7 - Putt from drop zone, miss
8 - Putt from circle 1, make

oohhh i forgot there was a drop zone on that hole. it seems crazy that he could miss twice from the drop zone, but this course takes no prisoners.

Big day for McBeth tomorrow...

If he wins, he should be player of the year, almost regardless of what happens in.the rest of 2018...a major and more real wins and consistency than the other major winners...and another second place finish at Worlds...

After Ricky dominating 2016 and besting McBeth (by a smaller margin) in 2017, this is a chance to really become "the man" again...

Eagle and Simon started the year with a real chance but neither could be in the discussion for best of 2018 if Paul wins this one...

I don't think he changed his game plan - he still ran for eagle on 10 when no one else did, for example. He just wasn't as clean off the tee today. He's also sick - looked awful after the round, and you can tell it affected him.

Also we need to talk more about Kevin Jones, people. He's gonna run for those eagles tomorrow and I. Am. Here. For. It.

i didn't realize he was ill. i just noticed his shots lacked ( drives in particular) the execution i have come to expect when he is in the zone. i hope he is 100% tomorrow cause there's hounds on his trail.

Until your approach goes 6" OB on the next hole and you Bogey. HELL of and Ace, though. Always pulling for Uli. He is a local and his Brother does a TON for our local scene.

I hate to say anything negative about the coverage today because it was a very good show, but Avery.... wow... "bidge" instead of "bid", "stoke" instead of "stroke", etc, etc....he's a good guy but I just don't think he should be in the booth. Such a harsh contrast to Jamie's crystal clear speaking voice.

But if Smashboxx can learn one thing from this coverage...and I have been suggesting this for quite some time...."Hole 17 Live" showed the top 10 scores often and when the scores were displayed they just verbally highlighted the movers, etc, no need to verbally address all the scores like the SB crew does. Just show the top 10 and move on, that was very professional and a pleasant surprise. It really allowed me to get a feel for the top 10 movement which you never really get from a SB broadcast since several holes can go by until they finally decide to show us the scores.

I had my doubts....I thought it would be a banter fest with very little live action...but to my surprise... as far as disc golf live tournament coverage goes, this was the best "overall" show I have seen. It's obvious Innova wanted a professional show to showcase their tournament, brand, players, etc, and they 100% succeeded. Looking forward to the final round coverage!
