I thought you were talking about discs - and I was going to say TeeBird :)

Markus Källström and Steve Rico and earlier the Jarvis brothers have thrown faaar on golf courses and in recent years Avery Jenkins and Garrett Gurthie have really made waves although Christian Sandström has held the distance record for a long while. Considering the discs available a lot of earlier generation throwers have put in impressive efforts. Like 500' air shots with a Viper probably on demand from Tomas Ekström. And many others.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Brinster is up there. He might not be as faar as some of the top distance guys (even though he can still bomb), but has one of the most precise driving games I've ever seen.

Yeah, I was the one with a GripEq bag. Shot good on the first day of singles, horrible on the second. You were the other person there with a Grip bag, right? You crushed a couple out there in the distance comp as well.

Doesn't Avery now have the "unofficial" long distance record of 843' or something?
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

I watched Dion Arlyn put one well over 800' at GBO this year. Only reason it stopped is a stupid building they didn't think would come into play. Z Nuke but I am unsure of the weight.

If the question is about the most consistant long thrower, I would think it must be the guy who has won the most distance competitions.

Not the record holder, not the guy who can bomb on golf lines, those are not the question !

GG is the most consistant and farthest throwing golf in the wolrd! Im still an AM but I can throw as far as the top pros, Ive beaten Uli, Nikko, Emac, Robbie Bratten, Devan Owens, Will schusterick, David Wiggins, etc...but Avery Jenkins, Matt Orum, Big Jerm, or GG are the only ones who I cannot seem to beat! If i throw 560 Avery will throw 570 or 580 same with Matt and Big Jerm....but GG will throw 50-100 ft father then mine every time! Ive seen GG throw 30ft past a 650ft hole! its seriously just unreal!!!
