    So many of the pros have amazing playstyles, but James Conrad is just special. There is no one I want to be able to play like more than him.

  • Nathan Yates

    I LOVE these kind of videos. You can really put yourself in his shoes and see the nerves play out from start to finish. This round was so impressive on so many levels: the decision to pitch out on 4 to par, the putt on 5, that really awkward upshot around teepad and gravel, more drives, the touch shot-almost-throw in, following a heart breaking OB, and THEN... to posterize the last 2 holes regardless: absolute professional.

    Love watching James shred a wooded course. He even got a great kick on 9!

  • Chris Davies
    Chris Davies

    James is a super talented guy who doesn't fully understand the throwing motion in disc golf, as he has no brace. He just falls over the collapsed leg structure which makes throws weak. It's amazing to me how talented players can take sub-optimal form and polish it until it shines like the sun. The falling drive perfectly demonstrates this lack of understanding.

    • Bob Sprung

    Hey guys, when filming the drives, please do NOT zoom in until the disc is on the way. We need to see the footwork of the players when driving. After the grip, footwork is the single most important part of a drive, and in many of them we can't see their legs or feet. Thanks.

    I absolutely CANT WAIT to see James throw MVP/Axiom/Streamline putters like the Envy. I absolutely love throwing the Envy off the tee or to shape tight wooded shots that need placement with low speed.

      I only like OB in creeks or if you go long past the basket and drop off a cliff.

    • The Cynic
      The Cynic

      AMD in ball golf courses when the greens are out of bounds. Stupid. Just put the basket right near the green and if you land there its OB and go five feet past the basket.

      @Ron Jones it looked like there was a low stone wall there

    • Chris Davies

      Exactly! And you are not alone. John Houck the world's leading course designer despises it. And with good reason. Artificial OB of all kinds is disgusting. It says "I am a super lazy course designer".

      Should work! But you could also try and learn to harness the smoothness of your bald head and channel it into your throws.

      @William Burk it's more or less confirmed but he hasn't made his official announcement/press release yet. He said that would happen sometime in January.

      This footage is from a tournament that happened months ago, when James was still with Innova. He probably won't play his first tournament with mvp until the Las Vegas Challenge in late February

  • Jesse Haughn

    Illegal putt @ 4:18?

    • Jay Coleman
      Jay Coleman

      @AddisyB He's outside the circle so as long as the foot that is behind the marker (left in this case) stays on the ground until after the disc is released and his right foot doesn't hit the ground it's a perfectly legal putt.

    • AddisyB

      @Jesse Haughn Ahh I see what you are saying. I don't know the rule on this!

    • Antoine Perhirin
      Antoine Perhirin

      @Jesse Haughn The right foot can move before releasing the disc, but not the left.

    • Jesse Haughn
      Jesse Haughn

      I was talking about how he lifts up the foot behind the disc before he releases the disc. Hard to tell really.

      I decided to try the whole “throwing putter” thing about eight months ago... first round got an ace, and now I throw putters way way more than I should, if its under 300’ I am almost certainly throwing a putter 😂 Aviar3 and AviarX3, both in the grippy XT plastic for feel and the ability to drop and stick.

    • KillerFinnish WR
      KillerFinnish WR

      @Ven Tarfield I also used mine for only putting and certain upshots beofre, but that changed when my old aviar got stable again and I could do crazy stuff with it. That lasted for only few days but after that, I went and bought an actual stable putter and now I throw putters a lot.

    • Ven Tarfield
      Ven Tarfield

      Yup. He has changed my game and others around me. Never knew the putter was so much more until the last couple years of watching.
