Ricky Wysocki Albert Tamm Synchronized Delaware JomezPro

JomezPro captured a wholesome moment of synchronicity at the Delaware Disc Golf Challenge.

As Albert Tamm lined-up a forehand on hole 10 during round two, Ricky Wysocki waited behind him eyeing the same fairway. Tamm took a couple practice hacks on the tee box and Wysocki did the same off to the side. The cameras captured the two drying their hands and flicking their wrists in almost perfect unison.

There are only two reasons this could happen:

  • Pure chance – these are normal motions and it’s just a coincidence.
  • Tamm has been watching/studying Wysocki’s form on tape for years and has internalized every aspect of his pre-shot routine.

We tend to lean toward the latter. Don’t buy it?

Then how do you explain another European player, Seppo Paju, perfectly matching another American player, Paul McBeth, step-for-step during an event last season?

The Europeans will probably soon be winning world titles and dominating the tour. It only tracks that they’ve been spending years laying the groundwork for a takeover by copying every move of the sport’s current superstars.

Sure, we can laugh now, but Eagle McMahon has the correct reaction in the clip from Delaware. Be wary.
