My first time going, I followed the 2nd card in 2013 (the year Brinster won) and Feldberg was tearing it up and almost tied Brinster but had a bogey on 18. It was something to watch. I rarely follow the lead card due to crowd size...usually I'll pick a card that might be a good follow and watch them. The last time was when Barry shot -11 a few years back (I believe). He was fun to watch methodically taking the course apart.

Name two (2) male Dynamic Discs players that have a chance of placing in the top 10 consistently at the USDGC in the next five (5) years. DD’s brand is based on several male players that were for mid level players with Innova but are rockstars with DD regardless of results.

People defending Jomez like they are the only good production company have blinders on, to put it mildly. The field is catching up quickly (or already doing as well or better, thanks CCDG)

correction. CCDG is catching up. Not the field.

Emerson? He's Lat64 and Clemons is solid but streaky. Melton is probably the best/most consistent MPO player DD has.

Plastic Thunder has made a good point. I noticed that the updates on dealer.innovadiscs.com last month and this month were very unexceptional at best, and downright boring and at worst. After McBeth's departure, I get a sense of a dwindling energy at Innova (and a lot more excitement at Discraft).

Sure, Innova will still sell discs, and I hope they'll make more molds in good XT and/or Nexus plastics that will sell well, but the 'trade' of Paul McBeth for Wysocki has not worked out in innova's favor, IMHO.
