Terry Miller posted he shot footage from R2 through the Final 9. But he said it may be several weeks before posting because of other events in his pipeline and upcoming events that take priority.

They were not in town for very long and didn't run any additional events. It would have been awesome for them to though. I was at the tournament and asked them if their sponsors covered any of this and the answer was no. So at least not this year.

Jacky comes from a family of disc golfers too. His mom and dad are both pretty solid players. It was impressive and exciting to watch. The tournament footage should be pretty fun. I believe there was some back and forth lead changes through out. Jacky is by far the best on the island, and honestly not sure he is ever really challenged. There are very few quality competitions. The local Taiwan Disc Golf Association (TDGA) holds monthly tournaments, but the overall quality is just not the same as it would be other places. The mental side of his game to step up and compete with the touring pros was as impressive, if not more so, than his physical technicals kill set which was also impressive.

Here's a lower quality video to give you a general idea of the course and how the pros played it. Jacky makes numerous appearances.

His putting form does look like McBeth.

It's official, his initial rating is 1040. Without looking that has to be a record for highest initial rating. Tied for both 6th highest rated player in the world and highest rated non US player with Simon Lizotte.

Cool, let's talk about this dude instead of the dude getting lessons from McBeth.
