Do people want to see pros struggle to make par? I understand that everyone competing on tour is better than me, and seeing them shoot over par doesn’t make me suddenly feel better because I’m 4 under at my home course. But if the goal is to see players finish -4 to win, these are the ways it could be done.
There are 70 women currently registered in the FPO division for the 2021 World Championships in Ogden Utah this year. I’m going to refine my list to 10 players whom I think stand a chance at winning the title. I want to say first of all how awesome a field of 70 is. This will be the largest FPO contingent in disc golf world’s history! The previous record was 49 at Smugglers Notch in 2018.
There’s a lot of players in MPO who have a chance to win a world’s title. I’m going to look at the 10 players who I believe have the best chance of winning. The prestige of winning a world title is one of the highest honors in the sport of disc golf. At one point, for a single week only perhaps, you were the undisputed best player on the planet.
We throw pointy pieces of hard plastic at incredible speeds. Central Coast Disc Golf measures professional players drive speeds and they see 70 miles per hour off the tee. Simon Lizotte hit 89.5 mph once! Now let’s get to why I had to write this blog.
I got thrown on today when I was giving a lesson. As I stood in the middle of a field having a 20 second talk about whether or not we should throw a forehand upshot or jump-putt, a purple driver missed my left knee by about two feet and hit the grass with a solid thud.
No “Fore!”, no “Watch out”, “Heads up.” Just silence.
