The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

come on lets hear em, hears mine - hole one at lincoln park massillon ohio, me and my buddys are teeing off, its my turn, i pull out my trusty orc and i remember throwing out the smack and telling the guys, yep fellas nothing but baskit, truth be known on my best day i can only get about half way there, so i take my run up and unleash with a monsterouse throw, and by monsterouse i mean monstrousely bad throw, anyone who has played this course will appreciate this next part, to the left of the fairway is a childrens playground that under most circumstances is completely out of the way and not even a concern and ussually devoide of anyone using it, not this day, my disc sailed thru the air in a way to high and way to left arc and landed three feet from a lady sitting on a park bench watching her kids play, i hurry up to retreave my disc, as i start to apologize to the lady she looks up and says - is this your first time ? i hesitated for a second and answered back, wy yes it is, truth is i had been playing for aprx four years at that point, so now everytime i throw a extremely bad shot ( which happens more than i care to admit ) my buddys cant help but ask - is this your first time ?

Last October at The orlando open in turkey lake i made my worst shot of the tournament only to follow it up with my best shot of the tournament. Hole 3 on the original course. My drive wound up in the monster shule right in the middle of the fairway. So not having a shot, I think I can throw a slight thumb roller and with the down hill it shouldn't take much power to make it to the basket. Well obviously , i didn't throw it hard enough and it rolled about 10 feet and died. Looked like it had been melted. Luckily I was playing with one of my best friends and of course the laughter ensued. Anyway, now I am staring at roughly a 100' putt to make par. Downhill, staring at nothing but the lake, i think heck, take your medicine and just lay up. I throw a nice slight turn over putt that flatens out only to rock the chains and stick. Sweet! Of course now the group is all laughing considering the last 5 minutes of "WHAT THE ?????????". As I run down to collect my putter i still can't believe it. Running back up the hill I realize the Fabulous Florida Tour director had watched the whole thing. I am glad to have him as my friend because all he did was look at me and then the ground and just laugh shaking his head as he walked away.
I return to this tournament this weekend with hopes this doesn't happen again.
I know that shule...and that Harrigan character....well....lol ....huge putt on likely an older Mach 1 too...last Saturday they officially replaced all of those old baskets with brand new Chainstars..
That's sweet. I had lots of putts last year, well........ that hit where i was aiming and they didn't stick.
Didn't happen to me, but on hole 3 Brahan Springs in Huntsville a buddy of mine walked up the the tee box, did his little run up and hucked for everything he was worth. Somehow, someway, that disc flew about 15ft off to the right of the tee box end over end. Was the craziest thing I have ever seen. Anthony will be proud that I gave him props!
This happened last year at EMU. I don't remember what the hole number is but it the one with the baseball diamond on the right side of the fairway but anyway:
That day the winds were crazy. I was going for a 20' or so putt. My brother in-law was about the same distance from the basket and about 30 or so feet from me. He made the joke that I should go ahead and throw and he will be standing there to catch it. Sure enough I threw my putt. The disc went about 10 feet past the basket then flipped up and floated right to him.
Mine would be a Blind hyzer shot off of hole 3 at Daviess Countys course. It'a about a 350 ft shot out of the woods and straight to the left. Threw a Esp force high and spiked and clipped a tree on the way out. Got a lil down and all my friends were making fun of me when about 4-5 seconds later we hear "CHING". Celebrated for about 10 minutes before we went down to check it out. Unfortuanately it spit out right under the basket but, my friends no longer make fun of my shots until they see it hit the ground. :) btw loudest ching i've ever heard from a basket in 9 years.
