Beanieman Rocks Worlds 2008

Our beloved Carl "Beanieman" Renda will soon return back home with very first world disc golf championship crown for San Diego in a 1 stroke victory in the 2008 Worlds Men's Am.Mini-Disc Golf Championships in Michigan this past week.

Sources close to "Beanieman" state that it was his extensive use of a “specialized” mini-disc overhand-tomahawk, as well as his training at Montiel DGC that helped him win his first (of many?) championships.

Carl is also posting some good scores in the “non-mini-disc” championship rounds. At last look he was +1 for the tourney while fellow San Diegan’ “Sidearm” Dave Roper is hovering around +4.

A celebration honoring Carl’s World Championship will take place at future time and date tba.

Written statements of apology from all 11 members of the “Keep Carl Renda Down” Club should appear soon on this site. :)

Carl did more than caddy. He was my personal shit talker! You should of seen how Carl made sure Ben was only focused on maintaining 2nd. jk. Thanks again Carl for helping me, and being out there! =! Noah you could use a caddy yourself.. then you might win something bigger than Yucaipa.

No thanks Noah. What I did for Evan at GCC was deserved by him for a variety of reasons, but specifically because he did it for me when I sucked and was taking my lumps figuring out what I was doing in Advanced. Those were tough times, but without Evan carrying the bag and keeping me as calm as he could, things would have been much worse. So as Evan overcomes a big hurdle in his progression, learning to play the way he is capable of playing in tournaments, I was glad I was there to return the favor from last year. If he can start playing the way he did at GCC consistently in tournaments, watch out.

Anyways, my service to Evan and Ben at the GCC is my last good duty done as a Caddy. Roper shot an 867 round at Memorial that was so bad, that it forced me into caddie retierment. It was so bad that after 4 holes, I had to take a break and go get tanked so that I didn't shove an ice pick into the side of my head. I stayed home the next day, he shot a 1029, and the writing was on the wall.

Knowing now that you plan on moving up Noah, I gotta make it back for worlds this year so I can get in your head one more time before we're both pros. And great job at the Memorial too. Roper told me what happened on the last hole, and i'll tell you what, I don't care how far out I am, I am 110% sure I run that putt as well. It could be 200 feet for all I care. Second place is the first loser.

Thanks for sweeping the tees in Vegas your arm is gonna be buff if you keep this up. Evan was on fire with you by his side maybe you should take up caddying. Steve Mills made $600 caddying for Feldberg at Worlds and $260 at USDGC.

Think about it!

Current Update: The arm has made a lot of progress in the last few weeks. I am at the point where I don't feel any pain just walking around and only in certain situations. I can lift 25-30 pounds, I have most of my range of motion back. It seems to be doing better then the first time around so I am optimistic that when I return from Arizona that I should be able to return to work and to start my 3-6 months of rehab and strength building before I return to play. I have been doing some lefty practice and should be able to play lefty during this 3-6 month period. I'm not putting any date or tournament goal as a targeted return, only stating that I have made it through the first part of the rehab and have a functional arm again. It's now up to me to turn this arm into a much stronger and more durable version of it's former self.
Fortunately for me, thanks to all of my friends and family, I have lots of support, and this time was able to make it through much easier then the first time around. It helped to have been through it before, but my friends would never let me get down when things were bad. It also helps to have the haters talking all the smack as well, because I haven't forgot for a second why i'm working so hard for this, and thanks to a certain hater i'm not short on motivation.
Going to travel to Vegas and Arizona to watch GCC and Memorial. I'm going to make the best of it and have a blast watching some good disc golf. And when I get back, I will hit the gym hard and a Beanieman return will be sooner than you think. Not saying it's imminent yet, it's still months away, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...

I would say my chances of playing worlds this year are 50-50 at best. I plan to get back sometime near the end of the year, hopefully in time to play for team San Diego in the Team Tournament. I don't plan on playing any sanctioned events this year, although I am not ruling it out, just not trying to get my hopes up until it happens. If I can start using my right arm to play again towards the end of the year then it will have had close to a year off from playing disc golf. I'll be ready to go. I will have to get back to form quickly if I am to qualify for US Amateur for 2010. I won't be able to use my automatic qualification from last year, I will have to re-qualify next year.

Comment by Carl Renda on February 4, 2009 at 3:54pm
So far so good with the recovery. I have developed a little form with the lefty putting. Can't putt far, but it's consistent. In a couple weeks I will begin throwing left handed.
Comment by Noah on January 23, 2009 at 4:02am
I figured it out. Carl was throwing discs that were too heavy. He should stick with minis so he can comeback and repeat his Mini World Title.
Comment by Carl Renda on January 13, 2009 at 6:57pm
Oh yeah this time while i'm out I will throw lefty and play intermediate left handed when I am cleared to do so.
