I got carded up with the MJ18 kids during a tournament earlier this year. Funny enough it was at the same course in the video above. Two of those kids were like 15 years old and were just crushing their drives. Probably throwing 450.

Well, I guess you haven't been watching too closely then. I'm pretty sure he threw a forehand or two off the tee in every tournament I saw him play this year, aside from maybe OTB.

Agreed, I feel like his improvement in his forehand swing did just as much to contribute to his wins this year, as his mental game improvement. I especially remember him flicking the Eagle Face disc extremely well.

I was also surprised to see Simon throwing quite a few forehands. Definitely seemed to be throwing them more than I remembered him throwing them in the past.

Guess I missed those. Haven't watched AS much this year. Will keep an eye on his FH going forward.
