Clearwater Disc Golf Bad Driver - Short version

"Unfortunately, this kind of reaction is typical of disrespectful drivers.  Boo to Clearwater Disc Golf Store for this.  I doubt they would take so kindly to others disrespecting their sport, let alone their safety.  It's never…"

My First PDGA Ace!

I threw my first PDGA ace yesterday (fourth ace overall) at the Jefferson City Open C-tier. I pretty much played terribly all day, but one shot made up for it all. Once again, my ace came from throwing the trusty ol' thumber. For the second round hole #4 was set up short (260ish?) and left, a completely blind shot tucked behind a row of cedars. I knew it looked good, and I was just hoping not to hear cedar, when I heard a solid and resounding "CHING." Our entire group's eyes lit up as we ran up… Continue

My First PDGA Win! (AM2)

This weekend I won my first PDGA sanctioned tourney, playing Intermediate! It was the Old Settler's Open at Prairie Center Park in Olathe, KS--a one-day C-tier on 9/4/10. I had never played the course before, but the prospect of playing a Dynamic Discs Tourney at a new course led me to drive the 2+ hours each way to play. Boy, was that drive worth it. I've been pushing for my first PDGA win all season, and I finally got it with a few months to spare. Given that my goal was to win at least one… Continue

Big day for tags!

I played in singles league yesterday (7/19/10) at Indian Hills and had a great time! I shot even par--with 5 birdies--and placed 1st in our Am division. (I would have placed 2nd in Pro if I had followed through on the move-up talk I had when registering.) My highlight came on my first hole (#3) when I threw in a Wizard from about 125'+ for a birdie two and a skin on the tough deuce hole--my first ever two there. But after the round came an even cooler reward. I am currently in possession of the… Continue

Ace #2!!

I just got back from a single round "club flight" mini tourney and I must say I have a smile on my face :). Mostly that's because I carded my second ace in a round--first in a tourney--on hole 12 at Albert Oakland's Back Course! Once again my ace came from a thumber that bounced/skipped up and in. This time I threw a 169g Z Avenger. As an added bonus, it was also my first time winning our club's Ace Pool!

Unsurprisingly, carding a "1" was also a key point in my round, as the ace… Continue

My First Ace!!

I threw my first ACE today at #16 on Albert Oakland's bottom course here in Columbia, MO!! I used a 174g Champion Monster, threw a thumber, and it bounced up and straight in. I've been wanting that one bad and I threw an identical shot that missed a foot left just yesterday, so it feels that much better. The best part was that twelve people witnessed it!! After so many close calls, I must say it feels good to finally join the Ace Club!

Happy Hucking!

Thanks everyone for the B-day wishes. We are looking to release a lot more DVD's this year, and cover a few tournaments. Hope to see you all there.

hey steve,
I have a couple seats open in my rental car (acquired solely for disc golf purposes) if you and another player want to join my buddy and I next Friday--I'm staying off of Harvester and Caulks hill.

I'm around most every morning this week until the 30th for rounds--my cell is 505-501-0664--give me a hollar..

Hey Steve,
Are you planning on playing the annual Turkey Toss Tourney at JB the day after thanksgiving? If so, would you like to carpool? I'll drive.

Ah, a Chesterfield native--I married a Parkway girl and know the area well--I always make it a point to play Quail, even though its so far out...

Great, I will keep you updated on where I intend to play on a given day--I will be staying in St. Charles--so the new course at Lindenwood (one of my alma maters) will be where I play most of the time--but Sioux, Quail, Birch, Enicott, CC are all on my list--but I do plan on playing the turkey toss at JB on the Sat after thanksgiving.

so I must pose the real STL question...where did you go to high school?
