It's currently at 1025 on the PDGA website. Third highest rated round of all time by a Finnish female.

Nope he has a 42 stroke lead over him, though they played different courses.

Will shot -5 on the back.

I think the name of the event is quite appropriate: https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/41911
It's not titled "Long Drive World Championship" -- it's "Long Drive Contest at Pro Worlds". Seems clear to me.

PDGA is not the governing body that recognizes distance records.
Distance records are recorded and sanctioned by WFDF. If anyone wants to set a world record, they need to find a WFDF event.

If the PDGA were to put on more distance competitions, they'd probably be set up more as "showcases" than "championships." USDGC does a great showcase after the final round. It's a ton of fun with loud music and just a handful of throwers, and no one tries to claim they're the "US Distance Champion" afterward.

I throw far. Not Paige P. far, but still far. Yes. I can confirm that Northwoods is an equalizer. She'll uncork on Sunset, I'm sure.

Sorry if this has been answered already...I just skimmed through this thread so I wouldn't see any spoilers.

Is the only coverage of Worlds the "live" coverage, or will there be recaps later? I really don't have time to spend over three hours watching one round.

Man, what a day!

I did udisc scoring for the first group off in the morning (Austin's group)...started at 8 and finished at 10:20 with only 3 players and noone ahead...and was lucky enough to get McBeths group in the afternoon...

The throw in eagle by KJ was the longest I've ever seen...I asked him if he had an estimate of distance fir me to enter into udisc and he said that he had used his rangefinder for the shot and it was exactly 128 yards...not your average throw in but tracked perfectly all the way...McBeth almost followed it up with another from maybe 30 feet closer just afterwards...ended up with a 20 foot putt...

Was worth the trip just for today...
