What's in the bag?

Lately I've been having a lot of success with carrying fewer discs(by my standards, anyhow!) I am a RHBH dominant thrower.

In a Revo Mini Bag:

174 ESP Predator - thumbers, forehand approaches, heavy headwinds

172 SOLF - Go-to distance driver for hyzers

172 SOLS - Go-to distance driver for straight shots and anhyzers

172 CE Teebird (L) - Control driver for tunnel shots, has a wee bit of fade at the end

172 Pro Leopard - For teeshots that need to finish dead… Continue

Gower Park

Coop and I played two rounds tonight with his nephew Ty. I was +3 and +2. When we finished we ran into Pat Husted and talked to him about tomorrow's Ice Bowl in Easley. I have lost 6 pounds since Monday on this diet.

Teeing off into the blogosphere

Well there it went...pretty similar to disc golf. It was short, it was in the fairway, it faded a bit early. I guess I will need an upshot to par this post when most bloggers would be putting. Ah, such is life.

Its Winter in these parts. The green wallpaper on this website will look familiar in about six months. Right now, the white space beneath the type is what I am seeing. Yeah, I am still throwing in the winter as I assume are most northern discers who visit this site. I…

The most brilliant thing you'll read today

Hudson Mills Metropark - considered by many the one of the top (and oldest) courses in the country - has implemented a pay-to-play model this year. $50 for an annual pass or $2 per round. Hudson Mills has two 24 hole courses, an activity center with snack bar, restrooms and vending machines. It is also the host to the Discraft Great Lakes Open. Easily the biggest and most prestigious tournament in Michigan. Basically it's about as good as it gets for a disc golf course, not just the course…

Played Lakewood for the first time today. Great course. I shot a respectable 52. Had a great round until the six on 12 long followed by a frustrated bogey on 13.Good warm up for this weekends kick off of the KOTS series.

Hopefully got the bagtags worked out-never could find anything to drill through the damn things though. I ended up using an epoxy blend and a little crafty work.Seem to be holding pretty well so far.

It is looking like a good turnout this weekend, hopefully… Continue

Welcome to Winter Golf....

Not much to blog about... just the frustration inevitable with winter field work. Stupid decision of the day, doing field work in a couple of inches of snow near dusk. I'm down a couple of distance drivers. I think I've got a pretty good bead on the Destroyer, and if I don't find it I have a backup waiting... but it is annoying. I'll be up early to slide my feet through the snow. The Wraith on the other hand... well, that's going to take some effort. It caught a wind gust BAD and took off clear… Continue

Respect- long but good blog (in my opinion of course!)

I've just been thinking about respect a lot. I think respecting others does a lot for your reputation, on and off the course. I ran into an incident a few months back that caused much of this thinking. This past spring and summer, I played a majority of my rounds at Ottawa Park in Toledo, OH. Ottawa is not the safest course to play on. One day I was out playing and the cops were chasing a guy from the neighborhood across the street onto the course and had their tazers out and ready. I've had…

First Post.

I just started this today and it is awsome. I can't wait to get my friends on here as well. I am looking forward to Saturday for the first tournament of the year. I will be playing at Mazerick Park in Fayetteville. I really need to improve my game this year. i have kind of reached a level that I can't get passed.

Nice, Cold Round; -11, 63

It was 13 degrees when I got there but had warmed up to a balmy 15 by the end of the round. Shot a -5, 32 on the front nine and -6, 31 on the back with a 2 on hole 10 by hitting a 75 footer.

Disc Resolutions for 2008

It is 5:40 in the morning as I begin this post. Clearly I have failed in one of last year's resolutions to always get myself to bed at a sane hour. My other resolutions were for weight training, and putting.

The weight training resolution wasn't a total failure, but it wasn't a success either. It lasted me for five weeks, into the middle of February. At that point I caught the flu, lost a lot of strength, and never went back to the rec center. I finally picked it back up in early… Continue

Stakes in the ground - grading has begun!!

I got a call first thing this morning from the Parks Dept.: "Have you been out to mark the locations for the tees and baskets at Montiel Park? We thought you were going to use sprinkler flags and the contractor didn't see any out there." Well, I don't think I was dreaming when I adjusted the flag locations on New Year's Eve, so I guess someone had decided to "borrow" my flags. My daughter, Katie, and I high-tailed it over to the park to see what had happened. Sure enough, all of the flags…

secrets to becoming a better discer

thanks to all the disc golfers in my community for making 2007 a fun year. I spent all year trying new things. I got to halloween and decided the most important thing is to stick to a drive and putt that works. I changed putters about 5 times. its not the disc but the putter. Its a great life lesson. If your gonna do something, stick with it. repetition is the key to life. My business is thriving right now because the reptitious world of painting has allowed me to bid jobs better, and know what… Continue

Damaging the Throwing Hand!

Ouch! I learned early on the basic rule that you never reach into deep grass or a thicket with your throwing hand. Tonight, Sheila learned that about . . . dish water! (See pic at end of blog post.)

So, here I am, sitting at our dining room table watching discgolfersR.us grow and the live chat actually work, and I hear from the kitchen: "Aargh!"

I could tell by the sound of Sheila's voice that it was bad, so I ran up to her prepared to do the tourniquet thing but didn't,… Continue

update on my wrist

I just spent half the day with an orthopedic surgeon. I got more

x-rays and then a CT scan. In the end, he determined that surgery was

not necessary. This was based on two different reasons. The first

being that the displacement that he would try to fix was only 1 mm and

it takes a displacement of 2 mm before they deem surgery necessary.

That was the good reason. The bad reason why not to do surgery is that

I actually have many small fractures in addition to the… Continue

Gower Park

Cooper and I played Gower today in miserable weather. It was 30 degrees, but the wind was brutal. Coop overslept so I played a round alone +4, then two with him +5 and +4. The wind really tore our game up! Today is also my 54th birthday.
