The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I like to see myself as a humble layed back player even if im playing an exceptional game and really enjoy other humble players, but in this case, HA!!!  Ed Austin Park seemed to be a good idea for a new course and I was with a small group looking for another group of locals to show us the course lay out.  Lets just say I regret hooking up with this group.  The ring leader of this group was a short redneck with little man syndrome and truly believed he was one of the best disc golfers is Florida.  We decided to play a round with the group and it quickly turned into the National Championship (even though nobody in this group would be qualifed).  The short redneck would call all kinds of crazy rules (which would always benefit him) and instead of appreciating a good shot from others in the group he would get pist?  He talked about how many tourtaments he won and how he was the leading player in the area...blah, blah, blah!  Going into hole16 I had a good lead and enjoyed watching this redneck Ken Climo hit every tree and body of water in the park (remember he is a local) while I relaxed with my ice cold brew.  Hole 18 is up and I throw a bomb all the way to the pin, probably a few feet away from a win.  Watched little man syndrome throw a horrible shot which pretty much set the win in concrete and never seen a player have such a fit on the disc course!  Swearing like a sailor, telling me how lucky I am, nobody beats him, we broke tons of rules, threw his bag, and then walked to his car!  For those of you that truly are exceptional players it's always nice to see you humble.  Im sure some of you have similar stories or better and I would like to hear your horror story...

So then Ken Climo and that redneck are the same? Dang I was hoping someday to play a round with him, but not if he is like that! Your out KC!

I followed Climo around one time during a tournament, I was a gallery of one, and the few times he got a bogey during that round he threw dirt at me.


Really! That's almost a true story....I promise.

Sorrry...geesh!!!  .....I'll try not to throw my bag next time.   HA! 


You should have played Tusc in it's "Open" layout

What was this Guy's name ?
Good sportsmanship and humility are two different things...the former is the more important trait...obviously, this guy didn't have either characteristic...
Ha I hope he reads this and realizes whats up
I like Ken Climo

Wow!!!  Ok for those of you that are a little confused it's not really Ken Climo, but a Climo wannabe!!!!  I would hope a Champ at his level would never act like this. 


I think his name was Eric, but couldn't tell you the last name.  Short, skinny, doesn't like wearing a shirt and has to wear the camo hat.  Fun stuff...
Already have Jamie...Looking good, but still need some practice.
Wow. Sounds like an interesting round. Glad you beat him out though. NOTHING is more satisfying than beating the unbeatable.... Lol.

Yeah I got that... .But I had to play on it a bit .... all fun and games.
