I played and ran tourneys for about 12 years,played almost every day during that time then things happened and I developed other interests like going back to school and sand volleyball and played  disc maybe 5 times from 1992 to 2010. Then they built a course near me and I got hooked again. There are still many players from the time I was playing and some doing quite well Like Ken Climo for example. But as others have said life changes and other interests will draw people away,though some of us show up again.


Children and tendinitis are my reason for not playing as much, especially tournaments. Tendinitis has taken the biggest toll on me this year. Even putting hurts so I decided to quit for this year in hopes of being able to play again next year.

How do you catch that tendinitus?

Do you mean Tendonitis ?


Tendinitis (informally also tendonitis)


Like me  , I have lost my health. It would be nice to be

completely healthy again, so I could atleast compete !

Agreed. I am also perfectly content with my insane obsession with discs. 

I agree completely with this , a simple example would be somebody who complains and does nothing. Somebody who walks by a piece of trash and doesn't pick it up or a step that needs fixed , they walk around it. I try to lead by example but they seem to think well let mike do it.

There is so much to do in the world, it's like saying you have to play 'disc golf' and like it or else.

You should have posted "What would you be doing if there were NO DISC GOLF?"

Growing up I participated in every sport that was available, it's called an open mind and being well rounded....

I enjoyed getting good at more than one sport.

If I were younger I'd try this:

By the way I do mountain bike but not as extreme as this.....
