The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Hi everyone.  Let me start this off by saying this:  I hate winter golf.  I know you Michigan guys are calling me all sorts of diminutive explicatives under your breath right now, but I've decided I don't care.  I've done all the things you can to do make a round tolerable in winter (besides hot cocoa in one of those beer-drinking helmets that have a straw to your mouth (this may be the key).  I don't like winter golf.


That said, I also don't like letting my putting atrophy over the long Wisconsin winter, so here my solution:


Host a (indoor) putting contest on DGRUS. If you don't have an indoor basket with 20 feet of space...feel free go outside (we might even give you a bonus putt...okay, no we won't).  All those in Florida and Cali are exempt from this contest.  Okay, you're not, but you have no excuse for your sub-par putting.  :-) 


Here are the simple rules. 


1...Throw 50 20' putts in one day and record your makes.  It doesn't have to be all at once, it can be broken up.  If you happen to make all 50, then keep going to see how long a streak you can get.


2...Once you start your set officially (and just say in your mind, 'okay, now I'm starting' don't start after you've made ten in a row while warming up) you cannot start over, no matter how dismal you're doing.  Stick to it.  It's what you'd have to do in a round...let's make it count.


3...Come to this thread and post how many you hit of 50 from the 20' range.


4...You can only do one set a day.  (you can practice all you like of course) So if you don't like your score, you cannot start over.  You're on your considerable honor as a disc golfer. 


5...We'll have daily winners, weekly winners, and the coveted "Best Session of the 09-10 Winter Season."  The contest will run until April 1, 2010 (last day to putt will be March 31).


That's it.  I don't have any prizes for this...just something to keep us motivated to practice and to create the pressure of competition in the off-season.


Oh lastly:  are there any vendors out there that would be willing to sponsor such a contest?  I know many of you frequent this forum.  Even a very small weekly prize (like a company mini) to the best score of the week would go a long way in creating a good name on the forum I'm sure. 


Again, please be honest about your scores, it does no one (including yourself) a favor if you cheat.  You all know the adage.


Let the games begin!

LMAO!! Now THAT's dedication and Love!
It builds confidence for me because the more familiar I am with stepping up and putting it in the basket, the more familiar I become with stepping up and putting it in the basket :) And knowing that it's going in is also a great builder.
I wish I read the rules...
Straddle stance: 45/50

Stagger stance: 46/50

Did them both today 2/18/10
well,broke out of the rut and fell farther down today.Blow thru chains,toilet bowl ring outs,perhaps the warmer weather we had in SWFL today.Putted with three instead of one,made time go quicker.Official 1st set:24/50,has to be the lowest score for the day. 2nd set: 36/50 not in the running.Hit more with the Banger and Aviar 2nd set;Pro Challenger and Aviar about even on the 1st set.
2-18-10 - 42/50, and then I putted a bit more successfully for a half hour afterwards.
well i got a basket set up and 20ft marked out today, didnt have time to get a set in but threw a few and was way high and left on almost everyone. plan on starting tomorrow, with a ice cold beer in hand....or at least close by.
I fell off a bit today, only 32 out of 50.
Better luck tomorrow!
I have been trying to learn to put with both hands to avoid those ackward straddle putts and today i am sarting to notice a differnce. 22/50 lefty, righty 43/50. from 20 feet. Hass anyone here tried to be a true both hand player?(when they wern't both before) what were teq used? any thing I should do like lift weights lefty etc?
dumb question? but do just lift weight righty right now? just got me thinking of the simpsons were homer keeps lifting a dumbell with just his one hand.
forgot to add the date yesterday for that showing,2/18/10
However,todays putting,2/19/10, improved for a best of:39/50
I don't lift weights, just pushups sit ups etc all body weight exersizes. my strong arm is my right being right handed, but not just strenght dexterity, cordination etc are all much stronger in the right. Im not looking to build arm strength persay, but all the above listed that would be benifical to discin
20 feet 47 of 50
