Amsterdam – Disc Golf Show Episode 55

I want to apologize upfront, the podcast recording glitched and didn’t record, however, I was able to strip the audio from the live stream. It’s of lesser quality then usual, but at least I was able to get it!

 

Brought to you in part by Final 9 Sports, with two locations, Orangevale – Shady Oaks & Rocklin – Johnson Springview Park, and DUDE Clothing!

UDisc Quick Stats

 

During the 2017 Disc Golf Pro Tour, there were only 6 players that had less than 40% pars. These also happen to be the more aggressive players that most often go for birdie or bogey.

 

Anthony Barela (34%) had the second fewest pars (after Eagle at 33%). Anthony was also #1 for Parked and Circle 1 in Regulation!

 

This goes to show you that there is a give and take for being aggressive and the overall outcome of your game, as Barela finished the 2017 DGPT in 43rd, while Eagle finished in 15th.

 

Also, Ricky Wysocki who finished in 1st for the DGPT had 36% Pars, and Paul McBeth who took 2nd also had 36% Pars.
