How did you learn such an effective form? Tips?

How hard do you train physically vs the other elite players?

What are the best cross training methods for throwing far?
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.

What are the best and worst parts of living on the PDGA Tour? What was your lowest point? If winning the World Championships was not the high point then what was?

Please list your favorite: course, tournament, male Pro player, female Pro player, food, drink, apparel, disc.

What is the best advice you can give to a hotshot amateur looking to make the jump into Pro and succeed?

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years, 20 years and tomorrow afternoon?

Which Pro player has the most pure talent? Who does the most with the least? Who, besides yourself, will be the next player to win at least 3 world titles in open?

Why are women 5% of the PDGA membership and tournaments generally? Adding money and perks has been ineffective in bringing in more women so is there a solution?

What is the biggest misconception about the top players? Who has the most undeserved bad reputation?

Who is the single best control driver, power driver, putter, trick shot artist, and pressure player in the world? What is your biggest strength and weakness in the game?

If we cut off your right arm and gave you a year to learn the game left handed, what handicap rating could you earn?

Are you the only guy in the top 25 in the world who could pass a drug test?

All spectacular questions- I'd actually be interested to hear the answers to all of these questions from most touring guys.
