Well I get to play Senior Grand Master (60) this year!
My son got me started threes years ago and if anything, I enjoy it more that he does? HA!
I had a total hip replacement in January, but I am playing better that before.
No aces, a few birdies and trying to throw 100 yards (not there yet). ;-)
But what the heck, I don't have to look stylish, or worry what people will say about me or my disc golf cart.
Old Man Golf Rules! Throw for the shade!
And who cares where I place, it all for FUN and besides, I have last place all sewed up.
I drove over to the Worlds three days last week. WHAT A SHOW!

I will be turning 50 in November this year and started playing Disc Golf when I was 43. That happened to be the same time I started college. I love the sport and play 2-3 times a week. I have noticed that most of the younger crowd either won't or can't play in the heat of the day but I enjoy it. It takes a lot to actually make me wuit playing once I start. I have one ace so far and I basically called it before hitting those chains. It was sweet.

2011 I'll be eligible for Masters, but HELL NO!!! I'm not giving up to these 15 year olds who can throw 500+, I will get there myself before I play Masters! And the Ibuprofen, epsom salts, tigerbalm, etc., all are necessities nowadays. Almost ready to give up playing two round a day tourneys and holding to 3 day events.

OK, so I guess I should take some of your advice Mr. Ed. I am 33 almost 34 years young. This must be my problem, I feel older than I am. So from this day forth I am going to take the advice of the older crowd and change my way of thinking. Thanks guys I feel younger already!
