Go check out Marcus "I throw far" Kallstrom park Blueberry #2 (530 ft) with a PURE HYZER. Simply sick.

:shock: Holy smokes. Seeing big shots on TV never gives the distance justice, but that looks huge even so! What's really crazy to me is that he's got no follow through with his feet...its like he takes a small x-step, and bam, his feet are planted. Lots of upper body follow through, but still, that's just insane.

He may not be following though with his feet, but his hips and shoulders are exploding though the zone. Actually, his throw is probably one of my favorites.

That is one badass Swed. Following him around at the BSF, he actually does sokoku at the teepad like a maniac. The guy is crazy. It's good to see him in the US where it's really at.

Still a rip though...

That actually makes more sense. I was looking at that shot, and thinking "no way that's over 400'."

Anyways, Marcus is tearing it up today. He's destroying Blueberry this morning.

Okay, I just saw a huge hyzer line 530' toss where the thrower doesn't even follow through with his legs.

I think I'm quitting disc golf.

[edit]Okay it was "only" 360' or so. Still was incredibly high and hyzer all the way with what looked like zero effort. I guess I can still keep playing the game now.[/edit]

I still think he could throw one, though.

Bobby Hill (aka Nate Doss) is shutting them down despite throwing that off-brand of plastic.
15 discs is too many, a thousand is not enough....

You look like you might have seen one up close.

I've parked (within 10') hole 2 at Blueberry Hill. When I did it it was only 370 and yes my shot was hyzer the whole way also.

However I believe they are playing a worlds' layout that is significantly longer than the standard layout. Many of the holes are 100' longer than normal. Another example is Granite Ridge 18. I remember the hole to be around 420' uphill that played like 550'. Now I think they say it is 739'.

As far as "big golf" goes, my boy Mose is in 5th and fellow Pennsylvanian Markus Kallstrom is in 4th. Another Pa. homeboy Joey Mela is 4th in Masters. Central Pa.'s Don Dillon is tied for 1st in Legends!

So far my hometown has claimed one World Championship in Highbridge and we have four more regional golfers in the top 5 of their divisions!


Update:
My friend Linc added a Worlds Ace (Woodland Bear #8 ) to his Mini Disc Worlds Championship and mini ace. (Has anyone else had both a mini ace and big golf ace in the same worlds before? I think not).
Central Pa's Don Dillon has opened up an 8 stroke lead in the Legends Division. North Pa's Markus Kallstrom in second. My boy Moser is still hanging out in 5th place Open, six strokes off Doss.
