Paradise Tournament

Another tournament, this one was in beautiful Paradise. I took first in advanced women and had a great time playing. The course is on a ball golf course at Lava Creek and it is gorgeous. The owners there are really supportive of the sport and were very kind and generous. For a day that was suppose to be rainy and cold it was wonderful out. The wind picked up at the end of the first round and stayed throughout the second round. Still, lots of elevation changes, water hazards and Dom our… Continue

Disc-Oragnized Disc Golf

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of those, in this wonderful loving disc golf family of ours that has helped me over the years. I was part of a local disc golf club, a lifetime member no less, years ago, before I decided to take a break from disc golf and more importantly the social circle that supported it. This social circle was at the heart of why I stopped playing disc golf and now it is the same group that is heading up the local club or at least one faction. I got tired of… Continue

Cracked Plastic Classic 09

What an intense day.

CP09 was only my second sanction tournament, the first being the kalamazoo championship 08. I was kind of forced to play am2 this time by Larry. Not a problem, I was actually glad he put me in am2 even though I signed up for am3. Its a pretty sweet compliment for me to be bumped UP a division. I'd much rather do that than sandbag am3. And speaking of sandbaggers...I can't believe how many guys were sandbagging am2! One guy i played with, who was a cool guy and all, had… Continue

Warmest day of the year!

It got up to 51 today, so I went to Independence Lake doubles at noon. There were 15 of us, and me and John Davis tied for 2nd with a 52. The wind was howling at 30+ mph the entire round as the snow melted before our eyes and the lake went from pure ice to deep water on top of the ice as all the snow melted. I've never seen anything like that, and so fast. I lost my Star Max but then found it as soon as I went to re-look for it because the snow on top of it had melted, and then found an… Continue

My first outing of "09...

I haven't played since shortly before the first snowfall here in central Wisconsin. Now, I know a lot of you brave the arctic temperatures and potential frostbite to keep that plastic flying. You brave souls have my respect. Admittedly, I'm not so ballsy. The cold is not my friend, but I'd definitely "man up" if that was all there was to it. Unfortunately, there's still three feet of snow on the ground to contend with. The wet and the cold aside, I DO NOT want to walk off the course with less… Continue

Gower and Holmes

I went to Gower this morning and it was a real struggle. The wooded holes look pretty good, as if they've been trampled down over the winter. I ended up at +4 which is sad even for me. I finished with a birdie on a 40 foot putt, so I went away feeling better. I found a disc near the 6th basket and saw another one in left field of the softball field. I would have picked it up but the field is locked up and I didn't feel like climbing the fence for someone else's disc.

I went to Holmes… Continue

The obsession continues.

Even though I am strapped for cash, I didn't even hesitate getting out my checkbook to buy a new groove last night. It's nice, my first ever first run. 171g Champion Groove in bright orange. Looks really nice in my bag. I also got my first ever disc golf teeshirt. It's a little tight, but as most of you know, I am losing weight every day. Keep checking in with my blog to see how my life is going !!

especially when your putting... it just came 2 me when i was in the back yard putting. most players don't realize the importance of following thru your putt. i didn't until a few minutes ago. i noticed i made more consistantly when i followed thru the putt. my confidence is back in my putting game also i noticed that during my round 2day. i only missed 2 putts...i've started analyzing my game since i made the decision 2 move into the open division. i've learned alot about my weakness's and how… Continue

Laid off? Play More Disc Golf!

I've been laid off for over a year. It sucks and there's no way to describe how easy it is to be pissed off at the fat cats who took our money and went home to the Hamptons. But...this is the year I discovered disc golf, where green's fees are, well, free, guys dress like the comic book shop owner from the Simpsons, sometimes the smell of Willie's favorite herb mixes nicely with patchouli as forest elves and hot hippy chicks cavort, and in my case I get to play a course that's wooded,… Continue

this is some of the best advice i can give anyone, pro and amateur alike. after a bad hole most of us get mad or angry,and we take that anger onto the next few holes. this is one of the worst habits u can get into. i strongly suggest "LEAVE IT AT THE HOLE".anger is the enemy on the course it effects judgment and what i think is most important POSITIVE THINKING. so after a bad hole shake it off and leave it there. taking that anger onto the next few holes is VERY counter productive and will kill… Continue
