Discgolf has become a lifestyle. no, no... an addiction. I think about it when I wake up, go to work and even in bed (sorry honey). I am finally starting to see some steady improvement. Those lucky shots are becoming much more regular. I am still waiting on that first ace, but I have had a few runs. I did really well at The Rock in Salina a few weeks ago (last time I picked up a disc. sad, huh, too much school work and not enough DG time!) I am hoping to take that momentum into Doo Dah in… Continue
Hey all - Check out the new music video featuring footage that will be in the movie. Set to some Mother Hips music. And if you haven't seen it, check out the earlier one set to some hip hop music by Ty Welch.
We are wrapping up filming with this weekend's Masters Cup and a couple interviews next week with the goal of having it ready for World's in August.
The other day I got my discs that I ordered off ebay. Innova Wold, Discraft Hawk and Discraft XL. The Wolf and I are still arguing a bit, but those two Discraft discs and I have really hit it off. The XL is such a great driver for me and once I learn to pull back a little on throwing, the Hawk is gonna be deadly.
In other odd news, the Cheetah that I found that looks like it's been through both WWI and WWII attached to the nose of a fighter plane has proven to be an awesome driver… Continue
After a miserable day at work I went to Century in Greer. Bill and Carla's truck was there and I saw them off in the distance. Bill was just finishing a round with another player after he and Carla had been cleaning out the mess around #10.
I didn't play especially well, but I never do when I have been angry. And I was angry all day at work today. I ended up +7 and only threw one birdie. But it was good to unwind with Bill and Carla.

Well, after a crazy year @ Michigan Tech, i'm now back in Kalamazoo and I have been disc golfing ALL DAY EVERY DAY! And finally, after about 3-4 years of playing and improving my game time after time, i played my first tournament at Begg Park in Battle Creek @ the Handlebar Open. I shot the hot round in the first round with a 71, putting me in the lead by 2 throws. In the second round, my competition brought the heat and took first in the end by 1 THROW! Even though I ended up taking second, I… Continue
I've been playing about a year now. I have come a long way since I started. I fore arm shot needs some polishing and my backhand stinks. Plus my putting is sporadic. However, playing yesterday, I landed a put and the basket fell down the pole...maybe that is a good sign.
Boo: I threw a 75 at Johnson Street last night. I would have done a little bit better but that damn hole 18! 6 throws?! I just don't have the strength to drive it far enough to accomplish anything on that hole.
Yay: My putting has already improved, especially with my Archangel. Yeah, you read that right: Archangel. I throw it with the disc vertical to get me through tight trees and stuff and it's nothing but basket, baby! Who needs the chains when you've got the… Continue

Some of my friends came up with the name "snake eye" many years ago, obviously inspired by my putting style. Here's a short video my friend Michael produced recently. It features the Austro Hungaro tour event in Retz, Austria. The tournament location is a former stone pit, apparently the best place for snakes. Enjoy!
The original "snake eyes":

On Sunday, May 3rd, I played Standing Rocks Park for the first time this year. This was also the first time I'd played this course in almost 4 years. I was what many might consider "riff-raff", as I was against the 'pay-to-play' policy that had been initiated there some time ago. After I had done a little maturing, I realized that the money paid to utilize this park was only going to enhance it. This was the first course I'd ever played, and even now, it remains my favorite. So, I caved and… Continue
The new course in Hastings Michigan is a gem. I played the course yesterday with course designer Sam Sherwood from the longs. The course is still being worked on but is very playable. The course boasts two pin placements and two tee placements. I am not sure on the length, but the longs have some good holes. The course is well designed with a mixture of holes and length. There is one hole over 550' that plays to a pin on a hill with steep drop offs. The course is also a hike. I was beat after… Continue

Looking over the confirmed players for the sarasota open,I see no women entered in ANY of the am postions.Am I premature in wondering,is it still too early?Or are there no woman playing down in sarasota.I only wonder because I would sponser my daughter IF the was a division for her to play.Is the answer too sign her up for Pro?
I am making another trip to take some photos and shoot some video of some good fun and disc golf action. Thanks to Dynamic Discs for welcoming me to the Mother's Day Madness in Lewisville, Texas. I have set up a live blog for this event. The live blog will allow me to send photos of the event from my phone. I will be posting videos and photos from the event. So, if you are unable to attend you can keep up with the action and if you do make it to the event I will see you there.
I went back to Timmons to try the front nine. I ended up at +4, which is a terrible score. But I wasted a lot of strokes on #8 with some indecisive putting. I also had a couple of odd things happen . I am still throwing longer but I was off just enough to cause a lot of trouble. +4 was a bad score even when I was struggling to throw at all. But I felt like the score was an aberration. I birdied #1 and #6, a circle 5 on #5, a 6 on #8, and a 4 on #9.

Aced hole #8 at Brahan Springs during the RCCG Tuesday night Pro/Am doubles round. I think this was the first time for me to hit an ace for an Ace Pot. WooHoo. On the next to last hole, my champion destroyer decided to jump up into the basket. There was much rejoicing.

This weekend I went back out to Ammon Ranch for another weekend of great disc golf. The weather when I took off on Friday said showers for Saturday and early showers on Sunday. Unfortunatly for me it was a little wrong, showers turned into pouring rain all day Saturday with not even a hole off. We played 36 holes on Sat. one round forward and one reverse, I know this doesn't sound like alot of disc, but this is Ammon Ranch were talking about here. For anyone who hasn't ever had the chance to… Continue

This is just a wish list I'm kinda creating as I go. If you are looking for something to get me for graduation, a disc makes an amazing gift. Worried someone else already got me the same disc? Not a problem! Disc golfers LOVE having more than one of the same disc. However, if you happened to get me the DVD or the subscription, you might want to let me know, that way I can take them off the list.
