Master's Cup

Santa Cruz, ah how I want to move there. I looked on Craigslist for a job in santa cruz when I got back to work yesterday. I have always loved the Monterey Bay, grew up down there. A big good job to Stevie for banging the big putt in the playoff with Avery. Another good job to "straight off the couch" Lissaman. An even bigger good job to Daviar Thomas for putting on a good show, especially the party's and sponsored locations for players to hang out when not playing, this should happen at every… Continue

Ace # 11

So I aced hole 4 tonight at Earlwwod. It is a little downhill dinker, but finally an Earlwood Ace!!! It was ace #11 and the same forehand shot I always throw which almost always gets an easy bird. This time it got me a ton of chains and a final basket resting place, plus a nice little $23 paycheck which is always a good kicker. My goal a few years back was to get 4 aces in a year and I currently have 2 so maybe I can make that happen who knows? Right now I am just happy with my ace and I hope I… Continue

ACEEEE!! and other important stuff to get out there

I got my first trip ace, first of 2008 and first since september 14th, finally.

Hole #3 Sedgely Woods in Philly, blue tees 172' with a rhyno.

**My 'reviews' of courses lean more toward personal experiences than actual 'course reviews' of the type made for pdga.com. I would write them very differently if that was the purpose, but it isn't. I never originally intended to write anything about this, I began planning 3 years ago and this site began at christmas.

This can happen when you drive too hard

I just didn't really find out why this disc is called "destroyer". Anyway, the tree survived and so did the disc. ;)

Played Manor Saturday

It's an awesome course. I can't believe they have 2 concrete tee boxes already for each hole. This is definitely designed with established players in mind.



How can a course that seems like it's in the middle of… Continue

Played Bellevue in Wilmington, PA- caution

Bellevue has so much poison ivy, it's practically in the air.
5 foot tall "stalks" of ivy line the fairways. It's disgusting. Other than that a good course, I'd never play it again, it's no fun trying to avoid it on every shot, See pics because I can't describe it in words.

Road Trip to the O.C.

A.J., Ryan and I headed up to O.C. for a lille mini-tour yesterday. We were accompanied by Katie and one of her friends, who were probably the MVP's of the trip because they were such good sports. We stopped first at Deerfield Community Park in Irvine, which none of us had played before. Good use of park space - 3 baskets that are used twice and 6 light poles each used twice. We played a "4-disc challenge," leaving most of our bags' contents in the truck. Ryan hadn't seen a course like this -… Continue

Gabe Lack Memorial at Lake Redding Golf Course

Well... another successful Shasta Series event in the books. The tourney went off pretty damn well. A lot better than my game, that's for sure.

Started off with a bang! A triple on the first hole. Hit the fountain square in the main upstream, and my disc (which was probably going in :) ) popped up and splashed straight down. Accccccckkkkkkk! What a start. I then proceeded to throw in the pond *TWICE* on the next water hole (# 3) for a five. A nice little +5 start after three holes.

I… Continue

Sitting here on the first good weather day (in WIlmington, DE)

I am sitting in a Subaru dealer's lobby right now, though. Getting spark plugs and belts replaced. I knew this was coming, and I got an oil change earlier and decided to get it all done today. Luckily I expected it in the budget and the timing, though it's the 2nd nice day so far and I am missing out. I was going to get both State parks here in Wilmington, DE in tonight then head north, but it looks like I'll just get one then the other tomorrow morning.

Already played Roland Park in… Continue

blossoms and fruit

The beautiful cherry blossoms portend the round and tart cherries that will ripen in early July. Those will be harvested and a couple delicous cherry pies will result. If the cherries are neglected and picked too late the birds will get them and leave nothing but pits behind.

The blue skillshot will bear its own fruit this year. Keep tending to putting. Practicing. Practicing some more. I hope the blossoms of my practice will yield… Continue

Someone found my 1st disc lost on the trip already!

Thanks, T-Mac.

That is my favorite Sentinel, the first one I ever had.

Today I played the State park in Hanover, PA.

54 holes and a mini golf course too.

On hole #4 i ran into a guy name Clint, and joined him for the rest of the 50 holes and mini. For the most part, it is very tight and challenging. A bit overgrown, but they work hard to maintain the place. Some long and open holes on the red 18. Blue is all tight and technical. Lots of ivy, avoidable on 90% of… Continue

Some good, some bad, plenty of mud

Today began at Creekside "Crawdad" in Camp Hill PA around 9:30 am. It is pretty decent, mostly short but demanding shots leaving you afraid of the river on most holes. Lots of poison ivy, but very easy to avoid it except for 3 holes on monster alley, where it is freshly carved out woods and very nasty. The other part of the course is a park setting with mowed grass and no rough stuff. Easy to follow, great signage and flow. Hanging arrows point you on your way. I ran into a tag league and… Continue

400! I broke the 400 course barrier today.

My last round today was at my 400th course played, Valley View park in Altoona, PA. It is 9 holes, somewhat too tight mixed with open. Very muddy, hard to navigate, but with good signs and tees. Several long fun holes save it and make it decent course.

Also played Getty Heights in Indiana, PA first today. It has 2-3 dumb blind woods holes, the rest are open-ish and short but good for beginners. Then I got a haircut.

Next, I went to IUP to play the PA state championships course (this… Continue

Final Results - "How Many Courses Have You Played" Survey

Here's the final results from the "How Many" survey. The survey was completed by 120 disc golfers. As you can see from the chart above, most of the golfers who responded have played a lot of different courses since they started playing disc golf. The median number of courses played was 30, so half of the golfers surveyed had played less than 30 courses and half had played 30 or more. There are some real road warriors out there, as nearly one-in-five… Continue

St Louis Open 5/2/08

I flew from Grand Junction CO to St Louis on Wednesday night. Interesting flight coming over the Rockies ... probably the bumpiest plane ride I have ever taken. We landed just in time ... I was about to blow chunks.

Denver to St Louis was casual. Arrived, and was picked up by my nephew Adam and his fiance Chris. Spent the day Thurday at my sisters house visiting my folks and family. Great time.

The weather is a little intense today. Thudershowers and some wind. I'm going out to hit up… Continue
