Albert Tamm, PDGA #76669, is the curent reigning and multiple Estonian National Disc Golf Champion and oh boy, he can throw far. But how far?
Lucky for us, he participated in the USDGC 2021 Distance Showcase, which he won and also participated in the Eagle McMahon’s “1 Mile Challenge”, where the goal was to throw as few shots as possible to beat the 1 mile distance marker. That’s ~1610 meters, 1760 yards or 5280 feet.
Albert Tamm – USDGC 2021 Distance Showcase WINNER – 646 feet
Albert won the USDGC 2021 Distance Showcase with an incredible smash of a drive, his winning shot was measured at 646 feet. The competiton was stacked with other extremely long distance throwers, including Eagle McMahon, Garrett Gurthie, Calvin Heimburg, Kevin Jones, Aaron Gossage, Simon Lizotte and Ben Callaway.
How did Albert do in the 1 Mile Challenge?
Let’s take a look at the numbers of Albert’s “1 Mile Challenge” video. Albert also chooses backhand for maximum distance. His 10 throws averaged around 566.9 feet (173 meters) a shot. Worst shot at 465 feet (141 meters) and best shot at a staggering 626 feet (190.8 meters).
Here are all of the 10 throws he threw: (1) 526; (2) 626 *; (3) 606; (4) 614; (5) 620; (6) 568; (7) 532; (8) 568; (9) 465; (10) 554. * = Tamm’s personal best
Total Distance = 5669 feet.
It’s safe to say that he successfully completed Eagle’s “1 Mile Challenge” in 10 throws. He even had 389 extra feet to spare.
How far can Albert Tamm throw?
Albert Tamm has thrown a Latitude 64 Gold-X Ballista Pro to a distance of 646 feet (196.9 meters), but as he mentioned in the “1 Mile Challenge” video, if he would practise more max distance driving he could potentially reach even further distances. It’s safe to say that Albert Tamm could reach 656 feet (200 meters) or even break the 700+ feet barrier (213+ meters).
