First Open Win

Well, since Justin has been begging for it... I guess I'll recount the improbability of yesterday. The title of the post pretty much gives away what happened.

I spent the past couple of weeks doing field work and telling myself that I was doing everything I could to facilitate a win in Open at the unsanctioned tournament on January 1st at Norwalk, Ohio's Great Blue Heron DGC. But even through all of that, I don't think I totally believed I could pull off a win.

We got there at… Continue

bandamer winter wonderland

Just got back from the most amazing lunch break nine(1/2/08) at bandamer. The recent winter storm left a bunch of heavy wet snow covering everything!!!! Baskets were enveloped in snow muting the sounds of the chains. The fairways are completely changed due to all the limbs being bent down. Even the path from 6 to 7 was a long bent-over crawl. Anyone gets a chance get out and play there today! No lost discs. bring good snow boots, gaiters,etc.

Life in Florida

I moved to Florida in August, and had a lot of time to work on my game. My wife Jessica, joined me in November, and we are loving it here. We tend to laugh each time we hear the snow reports back home in Michigan. While we miss our family and friends, we are excited to be in the Orlando area. I am teaching at a great middle school, and will probably never move back to Michigan.

The crew that I have been golfing with are great. It seems to be an exciting time for the Orlando Disc Golf…

Happy New Year

Just got back to Seattle from a trip back home to Oregon. Luckily had a chance to stop in Portland to play 36 holes at Pier Park (thanks for the round Dave) . Boy I really like that course, I hope all of you Portland discers really appreciate what a gem that course is; especially for a public park (judging by the 25+ players on the course by 10:00 on a Monday morning I think you do). Oregon DG never fails to impress me.

Why I'm Hooked

I had never really heard of disc golf until the spring of 2006. I played a few rounds here and there with my brother. By a few rounds I mean maybe like 4 or 5 all spring and summer. I was busy working to pay for school as well as working out so that I could keep my college soccer scholarship. I liked disc golf, but I wasn't hooked yet.

Spring 2007 rolled around and I bought my own discs. I began to play more. In fact, I began playing multiple rounds a day most days of the week. If I…

Thieves and Liars

I really hate local "players" who think they are all that however they are just full of crap. Who lie about their scores and who lie about how far they can throw it and even lie about how they acquired their discs. I'll admit anytime I'm one of those "lake rats" as some of you would say. However if the disc I finds has a name and number I'll call it and attempt to return it sometimes for a finders fee of like $2. If no one answers I consider it my disc. Sometimes I even turn them into the local… Continue

My First Ace...

February 23, 1998...Scottsdale, AZ...Vista Del Camino, hole #12 - While shooting a round with David Demery and friends, I was playing well and had the pad going into hole #11. And then, splash! A circle-5 put me to the back of the order coming into hole #12. I was upset. I took out a red, no-name 173 gram Cyclone which I'd found at the edge of the water the day before and, on a 278' pin setting, whipped the shot out of frustration as hard as I could throw it. The disc crashed into the chains… Continue
