Or other open style course with little to no elevation, thinking some of the Courses in State parks in Plains states that are hard only due to wind and get boring to watch top wind Pro players on non high wind days whatever that might be. Interesting to see on high wind days to see what discs they have picked for everything including Putter choice/putting style.

No and today the winds are so high I am surprised the wind has not triggered a wind warning/advisory. They were even higher before and no the courses I play on have more then just pain open flat, that is left to the in town course for Aberdeen the flattest town of South Dakota not the Lake Richmond course that has ingrown woods like a bad toenail.

You haven't posted much lately...

And some posters here thought maybe you were in Texas, on the lead card...

Conspiracy theories were running rampant...

Disc golf doesn't have a green. Disc golf holes are so diverse you couldn't say there is a standard distance from where a scratch player expects to finish in two more throws.

Here is a look at over 8,000 holes.

Cool chart, which hole is the 75% 475' one?

And what are the 0% holes under 200'?

A lot of the outliers are improperly reported or recorded hole lengths. Which is a lot more common than you would think. I don't bother looking them up. The important part is the bulk in the middle.

This post makes me think of something.

Can anyone point to any other tournaments that had top pros at them, other than the two we've seen from years ago, that used smaller baskets?

Odd that the pros are crying out for this change and yet we haven't seen anyone actually moving towards them for serious competition.

Weird.

Just when I was enjoying imagining what sort of holes they are, and how badly designed they might be....
