Tyson Marks is a disc golfer from Missoula, MT. I've played a couple rounds with him, he seems like an all around chill guy.

He must have a great poker face, eh? Another game where you need to keep your head and your nerve in check, just like golf.

Ya, I imagine poker would be good for the mental game.

I've heard that some states levy taxes out of DG winnings according to the rates of gambling with the outspoken reason that there are so many side bets and other gambling activities going on in DG events that they've labeled everything like competing akin to gambling. Thus a higher tax rate than for sport event winnings. Dunno if this is correct but I hope that more states won't be joining in this debacle because of this event. I hope he enjoys many good seasons as a touring pro with his winnings. There are few better investments that can be made than competing in DG wouldn't you say? :-)
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.

It fits well. I've met a few pro poker players on courses even here in utah. Hell I've used my poker winnings to pay rent in a few tight months. Poker and disc golf fit with the relaxed bum atmosphere. Very easy going on the social side and very critical and judgemental on the competitive side.

Well that's my drunk post for the night.
