Who said I was offended? I'm just pointing out that your comment was negative for the sake of being negative. She's a 5 time world champion, I'm sure there are tons of younger players who would love to meet her and talk to her, especially younger female players.

Yes. but i saw that more as a teaser to hint that he talked about Paige than anything else. . sure she will throw it when she "builds her bag" ..she did not throw many fairways with DD..so will she throw more fairways with Discraft?

She's also a better public speaker than Paul imop, which I think DC will capitalize on. She's already on facebook doing alot of promoting: "Also make sure you are online at 1pm eastern today where I’ll be going live from the @discraftdiscgolf warehouse! Giveaways and announcements coming at you all day!"

Add: She's on the DC Elite Team Tracker now, but when you click on her name it goes to "wix.com". DC using Wix for their website???? lol...

Discraft is privately-owned. Who are they reporting to?

...it doesn't have to be a board to directors or investors to do an annual financial analysis.

I work for a privately held company as well, but we still report out goal vs actual in sales as well as expenses, new business etc.

Just because there is no board does not mean there re no reports...

I have great news for you. Literally, nobody asked you to hang with PP.

I don't think your premise is true. She got off to a slow start this year on tour and it was attributed to a lack of warm up events or preparation, but looking back at years prior, there was no slow start at all. Rather indicative of someone who did some sort of prep/practice in the off-season.

2018...won her first nine starts including an A-tier, two women's only B-tiers, two NTs, and three DGPT.

2017...won her first six starts including a major, an NT, and two DGPT.

2016...six wins and a bunch of seconds in the first half of the year (first non top 2 finish was in July). This was the year she was with Prodigy but wanted out from Prodigy so she wasn't all that motivated, yet still started the year very solidly.

Not a notoriously slow starter or poor preparer at all that I can see.
