I suspect we've all seen or experienced bad luck trying to lay-up at times. (But personally, I think I would have tried to slide my putter upside down to the pin )
He did win with his skill. He didn't throw it the water.

Thank you, it's always nice to see some youngsters doing big things out there! I haven't seen any of the tourney footage just yet.

He step-putted it. That isn't the sort of thing you do on a 50-60 footer downhill if your intent is to lay up. That's just inviting the over-throw you're suggesting. Even if he wasn't explicitly running it, it was still an aggressive choice for a lay up shot.

IMO, if you're laying up in that situation, you shouldn't even be aiming for the pole/basket. I'd aim for the ground just to the left or right of the target. On that green, the only chance of a laid up shot getting on edge and rolling is if it were to hit the pole or the lock/tab at the base.

I'm friends with the Schultz family so I may be a bit biased, but they are the next disc golf family dynasty. They're all avid disc golfers and quality people on top of that.

Thunder Schultz (oldest sibling) is sponsored by Discmania, Silas is due for a contract with Latitude64 (and they're downright stupid if they don't sign him, you can quote me on that), and 11yo Simian is nipping at Silas' heels at local events in Baton Rouge as well.

This may be a dumb question, but is Silas Schultz related to Barry Schultz?

Those are some awesome names. Thunder Schultz literally sounds like the name you’d give a disc golf video game avatar with max stats. Thunder Climo would be a little too on the nose.

They aren't related, but I'm sure you're not the only one who wondered
