Does this mean Wiggins gets to put his name on the Boss now?

he plays a lot of Spike Hyzer tour tourneys Keltik, i've ran in to him there. that kids got game, it's crazy to think a 16yo kid now owns the distance record.

I must kill him and eat his heart to get his power.

p.s. he won the DB's tourney by just throwing giant spikes over half the tight fairways b/c he can. what a jerk.

Congratulations David!!!!!!! Awesome! Now what was it about primo plastic discs not being able to fly as far as base plastic? :-D
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.

Blizzard plastic might as well be base plastic... that stuff scuffs up as easy as DX.

Anyways nice to see someone break the record. I am sure Wiggins will keep topping it. someone will top 900ft but I am not sure if 1000 will be done.

Yeah, this is big problem, I've seen Schusterick doing the same thing, and it wasn't usually how the course designers had intended the holes to be played...only way to shut it down is to plant some trees just off the tee pad, and force the low route. As more and more of these young kids with huge arms climb up the ranks, we'll have to ensure that the courses stay challenging for them...

What could a baseball pitcher with a 100 mph fastball do? What could a 7 foot tall power forward from basketball do? Until the sport attracts the best athletes aren't we just guessing?
