Got the call to go out to ' Course Chez Daryl ' a farm course on 40 acres. Daryl the owner, Stu and I went at it playing for Bagtags with Daryl giving us each a stroke for home course advantage. These youngs guys thought they were going to beat up on me but I showed them. When I hit the 200' putt on 10 hole they knew something was up. It was wet and soggy with snow lying around but I was putting great. I beat Daryl by 5 and Stu by 4. I retained my 3 tag and Stu gained 7 and Daryl down to 9.…Continue
I'm heading out to play in my local clubs Ice Bowl today, my very first Ice Bowl!. The temperature is supposed to be near 60F so I think the only ice there will be keeping the RC cold. The is the 1st event of the 2008 RC Cola Moon Pie Series so there will be plenty of RC and Moon Pies!
They split the event onto two courses. The regular course and a temp course set up near a lake. The temp course is mostly wide open and the regular course is heavily wooded so it is a nice…Continue

Well this Saturday is the Jeff City club's 1st annual Ice Bowl and I'm super excited about it!!!
Jan 26th was Columbia's and we cranked in a bunch of food as well as close to 75 peeps from the area and had a Blast. It started off a bit chilly but there was no snow. The harsh element was the wind, gusting between 20 and 30 mph. It made for some pretty unsure putts. I finished 4th in my division while KK finished 3rd in her's.

This saturday (February 9th) will be the Warwick Ice Bowl, and perhaps the first tournament that I play in 2008. I spent most of my time in 2007 off, not playing tournaments, and even though I have less time to disc golf, I am not ready to completely write playing tournaments out of my life. Warwick has brought me mixed results. I won the two day animals fest playing advanced, but haven't cashed in 2 events (one of which being the Skylands NT, and the other was my first pro tourney) playing…Continue
I have had a few people tell me that they enjoyed my blog with Bob Rotella's wisdom!! This was originally posted on my myspace.
...I will be revealing no secrets by stating that good golf requires confidence. Without confidence, you can't trust your physical ability. You can't perform at your best.
...Negative thinking is almost 100 percent effective.
...By its nature, golf will try to sap your confidence. On every…Continue
Rotellas Ten Commandments: (*adapted for Disc Golf)
I. Play to play great. Don't play not to play poorly.
II. Love the challenge of the day, whatever it may be.
III. Get out of results and get into process.
IV. Know that nothing will bother or upset you on the golf course, and you will be in a great state of mind for every shot.
V. Playing with a feeling that the outcome doesn't matter is almost always preferable to caring too much.
VI. Believe fully…Continue
We have recently started this club in an effort to unite the disc golfers of South Florida. We live in the Sunshine state and yet it seems that the number of golfers are sparse compared to the clubs in other states! But I know we are all out there. We have a heck of a lot of great courses down here that offer a variety of challenges.....the only thing we lack is any true elevation challenges (if you have been to south Florida you can understand this.) But even so, our course designers have…Continue

If you're wondering ... I came up with the nickname "Boneman" because our hometown [Carbondale] is called "Bonedale" for short ... so, Boneman.
Having recently broken my leg playing disc golf, some say the nickname is more fitting now. I have to say that having been a climber for well over 30 years, I never broke a bone ... However, I have nearly died several times from other incidents.
I grew up in a small town in Missouri, just north of St. Louis [where I was born]. I lost my…Continue
