Not likely to happen since they can't be used in pdga events.

Ricky's putts in the final round may have stayed in if there were no poles.

You mean this one?

I think we can all agree that this was not a good putt.

Those DISCatchers at Sunset have a different weak spot. Top right corner similar to the one in Mach 3's but not as bad. I remember having 3 spit-throughs (where the disc went into the chains and came back out the other side, not just brushing the edge of them like the video above) about 2 years ago. It hurt the feels a little bit.

I wasn't implying that discatchers are bad and that a bad putt should have been good. I was pointing out that his statement was wrong. Since they weren't using the same baskets as the men, it doesn't matter if they weren't having chain/spit outs.

Gotcha. I was too quick to show off my fancy copy and paste skills.

Y'all do realize there was quite a push back in 2013-2014 to make the DG baskets much smaller because putting for the pros was "too easy." ?

Can you even imagine the crying that'd be happening right now had the PDGA actually done that?

^I think that was more about having -86 final scores and how to "fix" it.

Paul McBeth seemed to be doing a lot of chain untangling during the tourney...

Just use tone poles. That will solve the problem.
