i am so happy this thread exists. i was about to post conrad's shot and see if others enjoy following professional disc golf, too. i started playing at borderland in easton ~2002. my home course was golden gate park in SF for about 10 years and now you can find me at stafford in novato, ca. i started watching pro disc golf about 10 years ago when central coast started their youtube channel. watching coverage progress from single cam, no commentary "where is the disc?" kind of camera angles to multi-cam, multi card, pro graphics and commentary is unbelievable. i generally watch the GK or jomez edited rounds but am looking forward to seeing live coverage improve even more.
i watched that shot 20 times in a row. just couldn't believe it and actually felt emotional seeing so many people sharing the moment. with a year of events with no crowds, seeing a mass of spectators losing their collective mind was cathartic for me- even from my couch 1,000 miles away.
happy to see conrad win. i have a soft spot for players (like me) that do not have a reliable forearm in the bag and instead rely on long anhyzers that hold the line forever. mine just might be 200' shorter than conrad's. and he is probably reaching for an aviar (pre-mvp) while i'm throwing a roadrunner or sidewinder.
been reading a bunch about players being unhappy with the USDGA, the course design, and general organization. i hope disc golf's mainstream emergence means standardized baskets, tee pads, and how OB is marked (CA can still keep our 2 meter rule, though).
for anyone new to the game, either as a player or spectator - there is no better sport than disc golf. anyone from massachusetts should go over to maple hill and play the shortest layout. after that, watch pro coverage and you will get a sense of how incredible these athletes are.
