"Yeah, they generally do fly differently.  If you have a favorite mold, buy a new disc of the same mold, same weight, but different plastic, and see how differently they fly."

What a sport..... and other random meanderings

Its amazing how addictive this sport is. Disc Golf seems to take up so much of my time and thoughts now, I dont know what I did before I was invited to play by a mate..... I must have had a heap of spare time though! Starting a club from scratch was a challenge, but we all pulled together and that was achieved. The next big hurdle was organizing a really big State Tournament, and we did that exceptionally well. This year in October, we're hosting the Australian National Championships, and…

Addicted to buying plastic

Its funny, I always joke about it, but im coming to the realisation that I'm addicted to buying plastic. I think its the feeling I get when I see that carton sitting on the table for me, knowing it contains new plastic for my collection. I've currently got two more orders on their way, I order off a bunch of different sellers so I can get a good variety of discs. At the moment, I'm getting heaps of putters, specifically black ones. I've ordered a Black Soft Banger-GT, Soft Magnet, Magnet, a… Continue

Frustrated with my game

Gee, sometimes this game sucks! I commented today to my playing partner that I dont think I've played as much as I have recently, but my game is going backwards, not forwards. Its crazy, my driving is getting longer and better, my midrange game is good, but my putting is BAD. I'm trying everything to get it back to how it was, but nothing is working. Practice each day, changing putters/stance/grip, I'm trying everything. But I think im onto it, I think I'm over analyzing each putt. Its… Continue

Thank you for comment.
Japan is nearing its end is the hottest season.
The course has been increasing little by little.
I am a SGM at a little more.

Happy birthday.
I pray that you be able to live peacefully.
From a Japanese grandmaster player.
Every day that exceeds 35℃ leads to Japan.

Let me know if there are any worthy disc golf retailers your way.
They could by DPS wholesale.
The US dollar is still worthless, isn't it. They could do well.
Contacted the one store on your tournament site, without a response.

It seems to be surely brothers. HaHaHa.
I advertise your club!

Happy Bday
Go throw a disc today!

Happy Birthday.
I celebrate it from Japan.
Japan is very hot summer.
How is that?
I changed the polo shirt which had a photograph from Chris to the photograph which I wore.

…Happy B-Day… hope you enjoy your day with friends and family

Cheers. Already have an Avenger (150class- of course). Not a bad disc.

I watched the picture of the cloud called "Morning Glory?" which appeared on TV some time ago in "Burke town?".
It is a terrible cloud.
I was surprised.
It was the program of the special feature, but it was a terrible picture.
The stories are different, but the car is the same as Japan in Australia, and it is keeping to the left.
