That's quite the top 9.

I don't know much about Shue but he held his own.

Spotted this guy holding the lead card sign multiple times during the live broadcast. This is the guy they got to hold the sign for the LEAD CARD at a DGPT event?

Default forehand in the rain . . .

I throw a lot of forehands and often will switch to backhand on a drive I'll typically throw forehand if it's raining. Seems like Wysocki did this but others didn't.

Should you switch to backhands in the rain?

You mean someone nearly caught on fire during all that rain? First time I've seen photo evidence of spontaneous human combustion.

Oh man, how could they have overlooked that? What a major setback, some volunteer using an e-cig on YouTube in front of 1200 viewers.... this is clearly stunting the growth

It is a problem if any of those 1200 are people planning to put money into the sport. Looks unprofessional and feeds stereotypes about disc golfers.

Good point, never thought about it that way. Thank goodness he wasn't smoking a cigarette.

I thought Val tried to stick to her "don't make mistakes" game plan yesterday but those fairways are so tree-lined that trying to play it safe was easier said than done. And, she made a lot of good throws in rnds 1-3 but I also remember her missing the fairway several times and finding a "local route". Not sure that happened once yesterday. The weather made it harder to play it safe, too. That wind, rain, footing and wet discs made controlled safe tee offs no easier than just reaching back and going for it.
