I've heard stories of ridiculous shots on Geezer at Lakewood when he was doing a clinic here years ago. I think one was parking it with a sky roller that touched down around where the short pin placement is. (Once again, somebody correct me if I'm remembering wrongly.)
Scott taught me the X-step at a clinic in Corvallis in 2001 maybe, never saw anyone throw near as far as he did at that clinic. He was the first top pro I ever saw throw and certainly inspired me to practice and play more.

Man, I wish I was around when he was playing. By the sound of it, he was an incredible player.
Jackie Chan(man): Check out the PDGA worlds DVDs (I have videos) where Stokely was in the final 9 (I think in the late-90s or so). Tall guy, about 6'7", really lanky, incredible whip (sorry Dion) from both wings, and appears to be a very polite, considerate guy (something else you appear to have in common with him). Check it out ... very good competitor.
Dude, dont fret you are heading in the direction of being the next "scott stokely" or even better than him. Chandler you might not realize it, but you have the makings of a true champion.
I didn't know Stokely either, only stories of him. That's what I get for starting to play disc golf late in life. On the good side, I DO know ChanMan, and someday I can tell stories of my own about having golfed with and seen the kid when he first exploded on the scene.
Stokely was the first person to break 600' and was an amazing golfer. Was one of the top 4 players int he world. When he came through and did the clinic here in Kennewick i was already throwing really far. He helped me out with some grip changes that would curb some of my power. He also showed me a grip that he used for distance.... My hands arent small, yet they small enough I cant use his grip. Next time I see you Chandler remind me and we can see if your hands are big enough This guys sidearm was absolutely nuts!!! The guy was 6'7" and kind of awkward but he could make the disc go forever!!!!
