4 year old mistake

       December 2007 I was at the top of my disc golf career. I placed second in a tournament over great pros and was firing on all cylinders. Then a new relationship happened. I didnt play much the following year until it ended. 

     Since then, I have been in a driving slump. In early january 2011 I also experienced a putting slump. HERES HOW I FIXED MY SLUMP: I was lowering disc in my back swing. As a result, the disc was pulling around my body and spraying out of my hand. common…

kinda feel the ball people have infiltrated our turf

A frisbee is probably the number one symbol of the counter culture. It is destined to take over the ball as it is far superior in power, glide, watchability, and so on. Frisbees and Disc have always been a way for me to escape the jockular bad attitudes of traditional sports and the people who play them. The ball people are here. There messing with people. Denying them membership to the club, pitting people against each other. Bringing seriousness to a level that Disc Golf should never… Continue

sportsmanship on the course

Last year some jocky unimaginative uptight losers started raining on our parade. What was once fun… Continue

I realized something about young new players. They love to buy plastic. Lots of it. Bags, baskets. There thirst for knowledge and disc instruction is amazing!

They listen better than some stubborn older beginners. Tips fly out the other ear most of the time. I only give advice when asked. Im not one of those overload you… Continue

search for the perfect putter

after a years of searching Ive finally arrived at the perfect putter. drum roll please..... kc pro aviar. I recently picked up 11 and 12 time models. Ive tried wizards, challengers, magnets, flx challengers, classic aviars and many more.

In terms of durability this is it. All these aviar knockoffs have design flaws. You cant find enough of the same ones as innova has better distribution in alabama. The flight plates warp up as soon as you hit the first tree. i dont know about yall but I… Continue
