My fascination to disc began back in the year of my high school graduation. It was the summer of 1976. My friends and I would gather at Oak Park Mall in Austin, Minnesota late at night, and play Disc Golf under the parking lot lights. We designed a course that went completely around the mall using obstacles and such. Those were the…
Today I was out on the course, and I realized I had a lot of discs in the bag that did the same thing. I have always tried to practice mold reduction, but sometimes it just seemed impossible. I was auditioning a lot of discs for different roles, some of which didnt need to be exclusively filled. The following molds were in my bag: Max, Orc, Destroyer, Teerex, Sidewinder, Firebird, Teebird, Sentinel, Roc, Omega SS, Aviar, and Warlock. It wasn't what I would bring to a tournament, but I was…Continue
I'm Max. I go by MAD MAX on most forums. The MAD actually comes from "Montrose Area Disc" Golf which is a club I helped create and run while I lived in Montrose. Montrose is in Western Colorado. We have a great course that's gone from 9 holes of homemade baskets to 18 Mach V's with some very sweeeeet holes. I'm proud of my work there with the other club members to make it all happen by raising cash, going to city council meetings, working with the Parks Department and throwing some awesome…Continue

I'm 9 meters out and I choose a link and aim for it. Hah! I always choose the wrong link!
I'm a leftie so I usually choose a link about 3 inches left of center about middle height. My putting style is up down, that is to say I don't cross body putt. In general my missed putts…Continue

This is the home course of 12-time world champion Ken Climo, and it's a gorgeous one! The park's claim-to-fame is probably #10, right alongside Moccasin Lake. I lost a yellow Champion Sidewinder in this lake, and I gave it up for lost. If you can't throw across this lake to the basket, you RHBHers had better plan your hyzer well.
The front nine is mostly under the canopy of oaks, and makes for a pleasant first half.…Continue
My wife Colette has a friend that she sometimes meets up with at the Brandon Town Center, east of Tampa, and a few weeks back she did again, so my daughter Celeste - whom I've been getting interested in disc golf - and I tagged along with her just because the Limona DGC is nearby. And I had never been. So we went.
It was a chilly, somewhat windy day, but the sun was shining and the course was pretty much empty, although we did run…Continue

Every wednesday afternoon I play a friendly round with whoever shows up at Sand island. This game is big time mellow and is really just a midweek chance to relax.
So yesterday I tried changing up my midrange game. Instead of being tense, I said to myself and others "I'm going to throw like I'm outta my head". Instead of throwing short or wide I found myself making nice runs. Okay so I had two or three blow bys, but in general I preffered these runs to weak psuedo runs or wimpy…Continue

Once I discovered that there was a thriving disc golf community north of me, with numerous disc golf courses, I set out to visit as many of them as possible. The closest one is right across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, on the tip of the Pinellas peninsula, and it's named after a tribe of Native Americans that used to inhabit the region centuries ago: Tocabaga.
Tocabaga is a fairly big, spread-out park with practically no water hazards to deal with,…Continue

I paid my first visit to Taylor Lake Park in Largo FL, where I went and lost my favorite orange Champion Sidewinder into the drink off of hole #11. Bad throw. Switched to it from my Star Roadrunner at the last second, and that's what I get. I fixed the problem with a hop over to the Clearwater Disc Golf Store (www.gdisc.com) before coming back home... now I have a lighter…Continue
