Yeah my friend says cant ace if you dont throw it long

However he isnt going at basket height most of the time and I dont see many potential skips in because the zone just doesnt skip that high. I think if he could have a tap in 100% of the time he would rather take it, and not have 5% chance of throwing it in, but always coming back with at least some % chance of not sinking the comebacker

Well... For Seppo and Väinö not so much (-13 and -28 avg round rating vs rating)

But for the other ~1000 rated guys:

Tuomas Hyytiäinen (my clubmate) played almost exactly his rating (1003) on average.

Joona Heinänen played +14 average over his 993 rating. Would have made R2 feature card with a better PDGA number.

I am sure they are feeling pretty good for starting their 3 tourney swing like this, coming out of "winter" in Finland

Anyone know if there was coverage of the FPO cards? A small channel called Disc Golf Dame handled it surprisingly well last year, not sure if they were out there again or not.
Disc Dame did it again. I just sent them our drone footy.

I noticed that too about Philo, seems incredibly negative while on the course.

It's just a weird departure from his off course persona.

Everyone else on the card seemed to be smiling and having a good time and here's Philo moping around with a scowl on his face.

That's the norm for Philo when playing. He's very emotional and a perfectionist when it comes to trying to execute his shots. Even good shots can upset him if they're not quite what he wanted. Look at how many times he makes a putt and then stares at the basket in disappointment that the putt hit off center instead of on the pole. Whoever made the Nikko comparison earlier is pretty spot on.

I know the dude is chill off course, and I'd love to see more of that since Philo seems like a great guy. Unfortunately I mostly see Philo either on video coverage or in person while a tournament is going on so seeing a happy Philo is the "weird departure" in my case.
