2021 Maricopa Open • Round 1 • Back 9 • Adam Hammes • Anthony Barela • Cat Allen • Jennifer Allen

2021 Maricopa Open presented by Infinite Discs
Mixed • Round 1 • Back 9
Featuring: Adam Hammes, Anthony Barela, Catrina Allen, Jennifer Allen
Commentary: Mike Jewel & The Disc Golf Guy
Cameras: Curtis Van Slyke & The Disc Golf Guy
Edit: The Disc Golf Guy
Location: Copper Sky Rec Complex, Maricopa, AZ
Date: Saturday January 30, 2021
The Disc Golf Guy Channel is back in Arizona for the second time in three weekends. This is also my 7th trip to Maricopa for the Maricopa Open presented by Infinite Discs.
A few weeks ago we watched both Adam Hammes and Anthony Barela battle hard where Hammes came out on top but this place does hold a special place in history as it's the event where AB accepted his first ever cash and became a pro. Which young superstar has the upper hand and should we look to any others to make things interesting? Clint Calvin IS rated 1033 right now which is the second highest in the field.
The card also features Arizona's own Jennifer Allen along with off-season resident, Catrina Allen. Everyone was asked about being on this card first round and we are all expecting to see some great golf at Marciopa's Copper Sky Recreation Complex.
Huge shout out to both Pete Ulibarri (Maricopa Meadows) and Mike Jewel (Copper Sky) for helping with some drone previews along with all of my Patreon subscribers and supporters. Sam and Chuck Russ have again hired me to cover this event and I'm honored to do so. Thank you to them and all of the coverage sponsors and anyone else that helps with the production.

  24. ToothFairyRetributionManifesto

    ToothFairyRetributionManifesto23 days ago

    Can someone explain the theory behind lining up every putt on an extreme hyzer angle and then releasing your putts on anhyzer? Seems counter-intuitive and the results were good today. I can see how the spin anhyzer motion helps generate power for those 35-60 foot putts, but seems silly up close.

    As one of the better FPO putters it was rough seeing Jennifer miss all of her easier looks for birdie.. BUT...I love that she was smiling throughout and engaging...don't have as much experience with Jennifer as to her person but after seeing how she is out there...instant fan!...she didn't win the tournament but she won the better prize...respect

  37. ToothFairyRetributionManifesto

    ToothFairyRetributionManifesto23 days ago

    Is she one of the better FPO putters though? I would argue thought she is one of the best off the Tee, but her putting motion has too many moving parts to be consistent.

    Wouldn't Jen's putt after her out-of-bounds shot on the last hole be a violation of stance for having her back foot out-of-bounds as well?

  76. josh gutierrez

    josh gutierrez25 days ago

    I could be wrong but I don't see an advantage to the turbo putt in these conditions. I understand that it can come in handy when there is brush or woods you have to go through and can't do your normal putt but this makes no sense to me. Jen would be killing it if she could consistently make these short putts. Am I missing something?

  77. Joe Hand

    Joe Hand25 days ago

    Do you know the story behind the two meter rule? I heard it's from some guy who was super tall and was like into yoga and he was able to like make pots and do crazy stuff with his foot behind his desk and that's where the two meter rule comes from cuz he couldn't reach it

    Hoping that Jennifer can cure herself of "the yips". The rest of her game is top FPO level.

  98. Brent Gaul

    Brent Gaul25 days ago

    Jen needs to use her legs when she putts. There's no power coming from her lower body.

  99. Justin TheBasket

    Justin TheBasket25 days ago

    Yep. And I think Katrina needs to bend less at the waist (I do the same thing)and lose the hyzer putt. People say she has bad luck with roll aways but that's what happens when your disc hits it's target at 45 degrees or steeper. I'd love to see her completely retool her put. She is possibly the best in the game off the tee, and possibly the best on approaches inside 175 or so.

  100. OjiStatus N8ive

    OjiStatus N8ive25 days ago

    I was thinking the same thing. She seems to putt with strictly arm momentum/power, which sometimes ends up like a noodle arm putt that produces about as much accuracy as it does power and consistency. No real pull back/down on the putt backstroke, and no follow-through up towards the basket on the release, plus add in the lack of the inclusion of her hips and legs to get that extra bit of power to push it to the basket. Just a simple bend and curl at the elbow and then snap arm straight out with hopes of it hitting metal. I feel she missed out on at least 5 strokes off her score as a result of her putt game this round.

  101. Josh A

    aklevin25 days ago

    There's something to be said for watching pros play 250-350ft holes. It's fun watching them try to rein in their power where I'd need a full crush + favourable winds. @Terry, the consistency-fanatical side of me is wondering about the shortening of Cat's name in the video title - was it because there wasn't enough space?

  107. Dan Gordon

    Dan Gordon26 days ago

    My thought on the two meter rule is that I am generally out of favor with it. With that said, if a course was designed to use it, then I think it should be used. A couple of benefits that I see for it are that it may protect the trees a bit by discouraging throws into them and likewise may help pace of play. The thing I don’t like about the rule is a lot of times the outcome related to a whether a disc sticks in a tree above two meters feels lucky. It seems best to have a score reflect skill rather than luck.

  108. David Kolarik

    David Kolarik26 days ago

    Josiah Lonsway24 days ago

    Fozz: Yeah, it's so cool to see the split card! It is very enjoyable to learn form both the MPO and FPO fields! Mark: I don't think Barry thought what you thought he thought! lol Barry: I agree that male vs male and female vs female defined by DNA is the correct route for competitive sports. Basic genetic science is an easy guide to follow while confronting feelings-based arguments.

  112. Mista Glista

    Mista Glista25 days ago

    Agreed. Very cool approach for lower-key events.

  113. Mark Russell

    Mark Russell25 days ago

    @Barry Gwinn They're not competing against the men, their score stays in the FPO field only, that is unless the TD decides to not include an FPO field but that's become pretty rare. This approach is pretty typical when one person/crew is covering the tournament, it gets both MPO and FPO coverage for the first round instead of one or the other.

  114. Barry Gwinn

    Barry Gwinn25 days ago

    I enjoyed it as well, but I hope we can maintain integrity and common sense moving forward, concerning female athletes being required to compete against anything other than other born female competitors. Femininity will quietly walk away and leave yet another activity for men only, if not. Many women will gradually fade away, others will quit abruptly, neither voicing their displeasure, always putting others feelings ahead of voicing their own opinions. I know there are plenty that agree that wouldn't hit a like for the same reason, not wanting to offend that certain someone. Men and women are very different, let's just say physically for the sake of argument. Uhhhh, yes I really enjoyed the mixed card first round, at least from a viewer's perspective. I think it's more important to get the player's input on such matters, the men and women of course.

    They are both good throwers but need to change their putt technique. Jenn could be at -4 with just a decent putting round. Cat could be a 5x world champ with a good putt...
