A few thoughts I want to add...
People always think that big arms are "screwed" in the woods, but in my opinion, big arms actually have a huge advantage on wooded courses. The ability to throw a putter 300 feet, a midrange 375 and a controlled driver like a Leopard or Teebird over 400 is a HUGE advantage on the courses that Charlotte offered. There are many holes that players had to hit lines on 350 foot holes and the advantage of throwing a midrange for safety and still have a chance a birdie b/c you have the arm is a HUGE advantage. I've played A LOT of golf with David Wiggins, Jr. and you get him on a course where he has this advantage and he is very tough to beat. I was surprised at his finish, I really thought he would have finished top 10 - 15.
I've posted this on DGCR, in my opinion, completely wide open holes are way more unfair than wooded holes. People complain about luck in the woods, well, how about someone trying to throw a line 40 feet right of a basket and hyzer to the pin and yanks it 75 feet off line but then gets a nice 35 foot duece putt? How is that better than that person hitting a tree and struggling for par?
As someone who learned to play disc golf in the woods and perfers throwing a flippier disc with hyzer and popping it up (that's the way I learned, after all), the biggest mistake I see players making is trying to birdie everything. Sometimes on a super hard wooded hole, you just have to play for three.
