The way the cage on Chainstar are the discs tend to scoop out on putts.

She’s totally destroying the field
Paige looked good for sure. That course suited her game. Lots of long, fairly unimpeded drives. Paige also putted really well. In 3 rounds she may have had 4 bad holes.

Catrina looked really good in the final round.

There are quite a few courses around Nashville with the older Prodigy baskets. We always jokingly say ****in Prodigy baskets and I always say...Prodigy baskets hate your discs. The design concept is great but in reality they are too stiff to reliably catch putts.

I remember an early demo video of the Prodigy baskets. The guy was hammering every putt at them and they stuck. It seemed strange at the time how hard he was throwing his putts. I guess we have found out over the years why.

Yep and in 2016-2017 in that time when Scott Stokely first came onto Youtube, he was playing a old course in Pacific Northwest that was once a top Pro Super tour course that was dropped for very top status when the number of Touring Pros got to be too much for the course design had just got these baskets to replace the old cage Mach III. Scott Showed how it was impossible to do a putt though on the older style T1 with the outer chains set locking together same way the inner set is on both T1 and T2 are. Stokely was about 5 feet from basket so as to not hit the basket with his long arms and did a mega slam putt, to me this showed a basket that was going to need a hard hard putt to make a disc stick in the older T1 design. Since then the baskets have been changed so one does not need to putter drive a disc into the basket, but you still need to hard putt into the basket.

I like how you said throwing putts rather then putting his putts, this to makes me think the former Prodigy pro was not actually putting but doing a midrange standstill throw with players putter grip into the basket.
