SmashBoxxTV Podcast #15: Going deep with Simon Lizotte

The disc golf distance world record holder Simon Lizotte visits the SmashBoxxTV Podcast to talk with Terry Miller and Jonny V to talk about his off season and plans for 2015. Lizotte talks about the experience of setting the world record and the struggles of traveling around the world with passport restrictions and government rules.

AJ Risley fills in for Dana Vicich and gives a recap of the disc golf action this past weekend including a win for Paul McBeth at the Wintertime Open.

The most exciting announcement of the evening came from the tournament director of the 2015 Ledgestone Insurance Open, Nate Heinold. Heinold stopped by the show to announce they will have $65,000 added to the pro purse for the National Tour stop. This number has jumped from the previously announced $35,000. Assuming a full field, first place in Men’s Open will take home $6,600 with 25th place winning $1,000. For the Women’s Open, $3,000 will go to the winner.

Heinold also announced a new Ti FLX plastic from Discraft. It is a blend of their Titanium plastic and the popular FLX plastic. Expect to see a Ti FLX Buzzz, BuzzzSS, and Nuke to start in a few weeks.
