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

The Voyage Begins...

To Whomever This Concerns,

On Tuesday the 19th Feb I'm heading off to the UK for what will be a trip of a lifetime. What was always meant to be a tourist backpacking adventure has now turned in to a Disc Golf Voyage around the world!

I've never written a blog before, so bare with me as I fumble and stumble my way through this. I'm not even sure who I'm writing this for? Is it for me? Is it for my friends? Is it for my dog Zeke? He loves frisbees as much as me! Okay.. I'll… Continue

Introduce a friend to Disc Golf!

A friend from the U.K. (I met him on a ship in Antarctica!) gave me a shout that he was coming to Seattle for a conference this week and wanted to give disc golf a try. I picked him up at his downtown hotel and in 15 minutes we were at Lakewood on the first tee. I brought an assortment of discs in one of my extra bags for him to test drive: understable drivers, mid-ranges and a couple of different putters and we headed out hoping to beat the gathering grey rain clouds. I was pleased to get a… Continue

More speed golf.

Played two rounds after school today at Expo Park, Aurora, Colorado. Much snowmelt so my feet got all wet, the discs were muddy but I had fun anway. I love how there is more daylight these days in the evenings! Started at 5:00 and it was still easy to see for 25 mintes after I finished up at 5:45. There was some wind and that kept flipping the X-Buzz I'm auditioning which is frustrating on easy birdie holes. I didn't putt particularly well either but I did run decently fast.

The… Continue

Timmons Park

Bill, Steve, and I played 18 holes then Bill and I played the front 9 a second time. I was cruising along the fist time around at -2 after 6 holes when the bottom fell out. 7, 8 , and 9 are all birdie holes and I bogeyed them all. Then I took a double bogey on 11 and 12 while I didn't birdie 13. I bogeyed 14 then settled down for the rest of the round. I birdied 15, missed very makable birdie putts on 16 and 17 then parred 18. Steve left to get his day's sleep and I birdied 1, 2, and 9 on the… Continue

Worst Round in Over a Year...

This past Saturday Feb. 9th I played the worst round of golf since moving to Texas last March. I don't consider a couple of my rounds at TX States cause of the awful conditions last year. Saturday at Jack Brooks Park everything was in place for a great round of disc golf, the weather was in the mid 70's, little to no wind, I knew the course moderately well, and I had some really nice guys on my card. Par on the first hole is usually a great start for me (since that's where the nerves are often… Continue

Wintertime Open

After tying for 8th in my first tournament as an Intermediate, I felt good. Not because I played well but because I had fun. And in the end that is what disc golf is all about. If you are getting angry over little things, your priorities might not be in order. I missed four putts inside 20 feet during the last round. Oh well. It just lets me know that there are parts of my game that need work an I readily admit that. I'm only human. I watched Doss, Jenkins, Dorius and Barsby miss similar…

Snap or Hit

This is something I posted on a forum called, "The snap or hit and how to get it." FYI

The most important thing to focus on, when you are trying to get a snap/hit, is the disc. Not your wrist. The stop of the wrist helps the disc rip off your fingers. Pulling through that action is the other part. What you're trying to accomplish is a heavy rip off your fingers. If the disc slips out it's not good. You need a good grip with good traction. It also helps to discover where exactly… Continue

Wind Game

I think I'm starting to cement a reputation locally. Everybody around here has some sort of reputation, at least at the Advanced-on-up level, for being good at some particular part of the game. Maybe it's like that in other areas as well. Around here Dave O'Shea has the reputation for having the best forehand. Chris Hoyle is the best player, period. Steve Lopez is the most streaky (and when he's on, he's on). Jamie Whitehead has the flashiest game, with eye-popping distance and those… Continue

Terrace Creek

I started feeling a bit cagey this afternoon and decided to head up to Terrace Creek to play 18. It was real windy today with temps in the upper 40s. I played solo until I got to the ninth hole where I caught up with Jub Jub and Jim O'Connor so I joined them for the second half of the round. Even though the skies were cloudy and the wind was gusting there were quite a few people out on the course. I tried to play a 'smart' round and avoid lots of extra strokes by trying to go for everything. I… Continue

Beer Brewing & Wine!

I was at my LHBS today and got some useful tips that should make my life less stressful (I know brewing should not be stressful). Anyway....I have a Saison getting ready for the secondary (should be sometime this week), and I have just brewed the "Hopslap" (or Hopslam light if you will). This should slap anyone upside the head with hops , but yet allow you to have more than 2. I'm shooting for 4.5% ABV vs. Hopslams 10%.

We should know in a month or so. I'm hoping for a… Continue

Waiting for the SUN!!

The Doors (ya I'm OLD), had a great song called waiting for the SUN, but I've notice that it applies to "non-league/club" disc golf'ers too. Today, while running our club's Sunday FUN League, I noticed a LOT of "independent" DG'ers. out of the course for the first time, yep we hit around 50 today but there were a lot of high clouds, that kept out the sun till the back 9.

From Nov-now, we of the Pikes Peak Flying Disc Club, Sunday FUN League, owned our local course in Widefield Park,…
