thanks to everyone who made this great course possible (one of my personal… Continue

Steve and I played 2 rounds at Holmes today. I was +2 and +2. I felt like I played okay the first time around and terrible the second time, but I had the same scores. We ran into Gresham and his wife picnicking at the shelter. I hadn't seen G in a long time.

Me and my friend Jesse are headed down to ATL to play at Redan today. We are the only two of the normal crew that can make it today (weather, work, etc. keeping everyone else home). Never been there but I hear it kicks! Might try some other courses if there is time (and strength) left over.

i found myself in a bind and needed their services in a completely inappropriate manner. the stellar folks at the IDGC were able to accomplish the impossible by directing me to the resources i needed to accomplish a time-compressed task. without their help, an important step forward for the sport of disc golf could not have been realized. it is the services of professional individuals like these that make me PROUD to be a PDGA member and a friend of the IDGC. Come join the fun!!!

this is a interesting article I pulled off the pdga forum. This obsolete course issue ruined our rocket city blast tourney cause the a tier status made us play two similar courses:
Im a player with a 400 foot drive, but I agree:
They’re hitting the ball too far.” “Courses are becoming obsolete”. “Will golf become little more than driver,. wedge, putt?”
Cries are coming from both players and writers
alike that the incredible advances in the technology of… Continue

I played 18 holes with Bill tonight and I had my share of problems. I ended up at +4/58. I birdied 1,3,16,and 17, bogeyed 7,11, and 14, took a double on 12, and a triple on 5. I was very sore from working out the previous evening and that was bothering me. Overall I played okay for me, but my drive on 5 nicked a tree and caused a lot of havoc. I shanked my tee shot on 12 and had to fight through the greenbriars to get out. That exhausted me and it took until th e16th hole to catch my breath. I… Continue

I came to the realization yesterday and today how much disc golf means to me. You see, I grew up playing soccer. I played competitively from ages 5-20. From age 14-20, I played year round. Growing up I wanted to play college soccer. I played for a year and a half, and it wasn't what I wanted it to be. I hung up the cleats. That WAS my life for 15 years. This was the first fall season in 15 years that I wasn't playing soccer. This summer was the first season in 8 years that I wasn't playing… Continue

Teaching at the high school still sucks. I am looking forward to this weekend at O.T. Sloan. I need to make a come back after that terrible showing at Mazerick. I got some pictures of myself throwing and I could see my shoulder drop and I think that is causing my shots to go up and not level. I was practicing my putting out back and I was definitly improving on my 20 foot putts. Later.

I'm not sure if anyone has blogged on this yet, but the world famous Shoe Tree at Morley Field in San Diego is no more.
High winds and heavy rain led to the tree's demise this past weekend. The weight of the hundreds of water-logged shoes hanging on its branches caused it to topple in the high winds. The shoe tree was a well-known San Diego landmark and definitely an icon in the disc golf world. This leaves us to wonder: "where will the next… Continue

Being laid up with a broken leg is drag ... I sit at home looking at my bag — the one I have been putting together for a few of months. I thought it would be a fun project for the winter to put together a bag of my favorite discs, all in RED. Not a silly thing to do when you live in the mountains of Colorado. It gets very hard to find your discs after the snow falls.
All those beautiful broken in discs come out and are stored until spring. Especially… Continue

Today in my spin class the instructor was featuring the guitarists from the Yardbirds. It made for a great workout. On one long, slow Clapton tune we stayed in the saddle. I had a good amount of resistance. I could feel myself both pushing down and pulling up with each stroke. The tune kept going and required us to get into "the zone" and continue pedaling. I realized that I was channeling the great German racer, Jan Ullrich. Ullrich was a powerful rider who could push huge gears and keep… Continue

At the Kinston monthly Sunday, had a bad drive on 14 from the short tee, but birdied it with a 30+ putt. Made my day :-)

I got out to North Park on Jan. 1 for a little casual golf. Saw a gaggle of the regulars there of course and played a round of random doubles on the front nine for two bucks a head. I got partnered with a guy named Miki that I hadn't met before. Played a typical North Park round and ended up with a rather dismal one or two under. Winners were at five I think. Fun time though and always great to be out on New Years Day throwing a disc.

Played the Freeze in the Trees up at the Lake Stevens course on December 29th. Enjoyed sharing the drive up with Ken Smith. Hadn't thrown a disc in about a month so it was great to be out tossing again. I love playing in the big trees at this course. I ended up winning a ten dollar CTP and then finished tied for last cash. Would have been happy to split the twenty but the other guy got cujoled by the crowd at tourney central into playing off for it and I ended up winning the playoff. Nice to… Continue
