Professional disc golfer Philo Brathwaite prepares to throw in the Beaver State Fling in Estacada, Oregon.

It may not be the most mainstream of sports, but the skill displayed by disc golf athletes, such as Philo Brathwaite in the video below, is just as impressive as any other sport.

Brathwaite, a member of the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA), recorded a 2 on an 850ft par 5, slotting his outrageous throw to perfection en route to finishing runner-up at the Beaver State Fling at Milo McIver State Park in Estacada, Oregon.

It was Brathwaite's second best placing of the season, after having finished first in the Gentlemen's Club Challenge in February in Henderson, Nevada, walking away with a prize total of US$2000.
