The only change at Chili when Ron threw his 44 was Hole #1...the basket was another 30' farther (and to the left near the hedge row)....and Hole #2 basket was in the long placement across the creek....all other baskets and tees were the same! Oooops.....another thought was that the tee on #10 was more to the right....Scott Stokely threw an overhead thumber with a Magnet over the tallest tree and just missed acing the hole by approx.3 feet! Upon further review it was Scott Stokely with the "44".....He gave Tom Mulligan this Magnet disc as a momento.....so Ron Russell does NOT have the record!
Definitely a "typo" I have seen the disc that Stokley signed that says"44" and I was the TD for the Chili Course during the Worlds.....I can see where there would be a bit of confusion as Ron did win the Worlds...a bit of trivia here also....Ron's PDGA # is.....9999 and he won his only title in '99!
the tee's and baskets may be in the same position but the tree's weren't above 5 feet. Personally I think its almost a different course. The video makes it look like they're just shooting at baskets in an open field.
