Crazy Stuff happens at Jefferson Barracks
-There is a tree with a "V" in it and I threw a champ orc and it wedged right in there (impossible to get out unless you climb) The tree is dead and on a hill so I left it and it stayed there for months. A guy that plays there, tree climber by trade, offers to get it for a beer, I accept. So he gets it. The next round I played there I threw a different disc on purpose, just in case... And I got it stuck in the same place. Unbelievable. I got that one back too for another beer.
- Same course, different day, a disc is hucked at an unsuspecting squirrel from about 90' back. My buddy hit the squirrel. It jumped up did a double back flip, landed, looked around frantically and ran back up his tree.
- Same course, different day, rainy day, we were walking around the bend on 17 and heard noises from the ditch on the right side of the fairway (its about 40' deep and 100' across boarded on all sides by trees). We walked by and looked down to find teenagers utilizing the course as a "love shack." Its not all together surprising. There are very low rent apartments that border that side of the course.
- Same course, different day, tournament day. My buddy's up shot landed about 5' from the basket. When he picked it up there was a small snake coiled up under it. Which not only scared the he!! out of him it startled the rest of us too.
- Different course, different day, tournament day. I was playing West City Park in Festus. Holes 13-15 have water on the right side. One of my shots goes close to the river, but not in. As I climb down the bank one of the guys on my card warns, "look out for that snake." Since we joke about that (see last event) I thought it was a joke. Right then I look down and see a 4' black snake making it's way to the river. I jumped out of the way FAST! I don't mind snakes, but I respect them and give them plenty of space.
I played in a "Mando Mystery" tournament last weekend in heavy winds--gusting well over 40mph. One of our "mando" shots was to tee off with our "off hand" straight into that wind. A guy in our group cranked one way over with his left hand, and it kept turning and turning until it was coming straight back at us! Then it kind of flexed out and finished about 100' behind the teebox.
At the same tournament a friend of mine lined up a 15' putt only to have the wind smack it straight down as soon as he released it--he left a 15' putt 10' short--lol. Then my doubles partner tried to hyzer putt our 12 footer into the same wind with his FLX Drone , and it turned over on him. Unreal.
I hit this putt from about 15 feet and then it wobbled on the edge about 3X and flipped over onto the knobs. Gotta love Cass Benton Park!
i over threw a 250ish foot down hill hole,about 30 ft past the basket was a p/u parked by the curb,as my disc glanced of the hood of the p/u it flew into the passenger window of a van driving by.the van drove for about 200 ft and the person inside tossed it back out the window onto the course.i think played it as inbounds.
