His putting stroke is also looking really good.

Odd fan description? Just seems like pretty accurate information to me...

Someones got a bit of jealousy showing

Sure, call me an early Brodie Disc Golf fan... What's wrong with that?

Frisbee Rob throws 600'+. Rated peaked 982, although I don't think he really trained much golf wise.

He'll never be on a lead card. Putting will bring him down to earth.
IMO.

I'm thinking the same thing. At least for this year, anyway

This guy grinds at what he wants to get better at. I bet hes putting a couple of hours a day.

I am very curious to see how this unfolds. I have posited that Disc Golf is a game that does not require as much raw athletic poweress as most sports.

We have very few players with raw athletic talent in our game, Kevin Jones and Ken Climo being exceptions to the statement. Those we see at the top of the game now, in other pro sports would only be mediocre physical poweress at best, mixed with skill and a sound mental game.

How far can he climb the ranks with his raw athletic ability in one season? How important is raw athleticism to Disc Golf(other than pure distance)?

I think this season will answer some questions I have been pondering.

#1 disc golf athlete is Steve Wisecup. For those who never heard of him he was the last to win the Worlds before Climo started his streak.

That was before I was in the game and before all the old youtube videos I have found.

Jeez he is ripped! He looks like a gymnest with that build. Looks like he could do a muscle up to an Iron Cross on the rings.
