Looking at the PDGA stats this looks to be Paige worst Open FPO tournament EVER

But lot´s of strange results on the MPO side to. . Rick outside cash and Eagle and Simon WAY behind

Watching the 2nd and final round on the mens side seemed odd also, it's was almost sublackluster, it's like the season ending took a lot of the life out of the players.

If you mean Ricky Wysocki, that might not be a strange thing going forward if he has aftereffects of his Lyme's illness. He might return to top form... or he well might not.

Yes, and another of her video's worth a look are the "inside look" videos, especially her one of Waco where she did not perform as she wanted to. Her level of communication with her fans is exceptional.

Mixed feelings from that video... (In regards to living out of a van.) I mean she's the #1 FPO player in our sport. Just not sure how other younger up and coming FPO players would feel about that video. Would they aspire to be just like Paige, or would it discourage them?

A 980 player played a couple of 950 rounds... what is shocking about that?

Well, its at least a very "real" vid. By that I mean Paige shows the repetitive downside of competitive disc golf. Any up and comer has to realize that being a pro disc golfer involves almost constant travel, a less than stellar diet, and living on the road for most of the year.

I find her videos enlightening, especially the quiet periods of reflection after a bad round. You learn a lot more about someone watching them when they're struggling than when everything's coming easily.

All these professional "van life" disc golfers are in limbo for the time being (as is just about everyone else for that matter). At least in this latest video Paige didn't gloss everything over and pretend her life is roses right now.

I guess Paige does the van life because she likes it. . her salary from Discraft should cover a "Fly to the event and stay at a hotel life" if she wanted to
