a couple firsts.

I aced on Saturday, it wasn't my first ace but it has been quite a while. after a almost three year drought following a 7 ace year in 2006, I finally hit one. It was however my first ace in league or tourney play and cashed in the winter leagues ace pool for $46. It was also my first ever cross-body ace, after learning to throw cross-body over the past 2 1/2" years I was slowly losing hope I would ever ace again, while scores have greatly improved over that period I was wondering if I had… Continue

Thanksgiving Stink Up!

I spent my Thanksgiving at work, but ran by Timmons Park and played the back nine afterward. I have to say that I stunk up the place. I took a double bogey on 11 with a rollaway that dropped off the basket - another double bogey on 12 with an approach in the creek - a birdie on 14 with a long putt - a bogey on 16 by leaving my approach wedged between two trees - and a double bogey on 18 with my teeshot short into the creek. I was really struggling to control my sidearm throw from the tee and… Continue

Lost my Z'Puttr

Well I left my Z' Puttr at the practice basket yesterday. It is the only disc I have to have. The X plastic isn't the same for me. Does anyone know where I can acquire one? I haven't found any online. Without it I feel lost...

New personal best and referendum signing party

Today I set a new personal best of even par on the short course in Bidwell Park. I played with a new putter that I borrowed from a buddy and it took two strokes off of my average. I would also like to remind people about the referndum that is taking place in order to restore disc golf. There will be a referendum signing party at the madison bear garden on Monday December 1st from 11:30 am until 5:30 pm. Please show up to sign the referendum to keep disc golf in upper Bidwell park.

Ace # 25 - Enterprise League Ace Pot! 10-31

Well I've been injured.. but my elbow was feeling "okay," so I decided to risk some righty throws (I've been playing lefty since the injury) at Saturday league.

Number 10 is a short little technical shot through the trees. I pulled out my Sierra Nevada Aviar putter and threw an easy little anhyzer shot through the biggest gap. It sailed nicely down the middle gliding gently to the right as it went and BAM! It lands right in the chains!

If you look at the picture, the flight went down… Continue

Finally back on this site

Hey everyone,

my fiance broke up with me a month before we were supposed to get married so I haven't had the chance to go on here - haven't been in a good mood since it happened. He left in early July so it has been a while since I've been on here. I'm still not at all over him and I really miss him but I've been having a better attitude about things. I didn't play disc for quite a while ... I played one game with my ex and his jerk friends back in early September and then another with…

wow A tier only has 47 players in it. mocassin lake A tier

See just cause its an A tier and the biggest names in disc golf are there does'nt mean people will come to your tourney.
My local club thinks that if you get the names people will come . HOGWASH, Paul Ulabrri has been here ,Nate Sexton has been here those guys are top notch, but my club only sees world champions (kinda closed minded) Case in point just cause a world champion is playing does not mean instant big tourney status. The payouts were just a scratch above the b tiers we throw.

Rounds 2 and 3

Well I finally get to give every one the update they want. I got out today and got to play rounds 2 and 3. So I pushed through 36 holes of play. I did not shoot too shabby. On the 1st round I ever shot the score was an 81, today I shot round 2 a 61 with a total of 7 pars, too bad I could not add a birdie to that, and round 3 a 71 with 7 pars as well. I had a shot for a birdie and the disc bounced off the chains and I got the par. The Gateway Prototype disc that I purchased was a great disc, for… Continue

2 Days After receiving Discs

Well I have not got to get out and play a round yet cause of work and dentist appointments, but I have gotten the opportunity to throw some out across the street from me, I have thrown both my Avenger and my Element Prototype.

I only have about 220 feet to work with so I at least know that I can throw that consistently with both discs. I have confidence that I will be able to do better than that once I have more room to throw. I have been practicing thumbers and tomahawks as well and… Continue

New Discs

Well I am very new to the game of Disc Golf. I am so new in fact that I have only played one round and owned no disc's.

After playing the first time I was hooked. I immediately started watching videos and reading up on things. I may not have a whole lot of playing time under my belt but I am getting some good tips and tricks from all the studying that I am doing. Anyway so I purchased two disc's from E-bay. One is an X-Element S-Series Prototype and the other an Avenger Pro-D. I just got… Continue

The Birthday Bag Tag Battle

So it was my 29th birthday today and i woke up in the morning I sent out a text saying that i was going to play a birthday round if anyone wanted to go.

Basket # 1. The round started off on a short par 3. Which should be an easy hole for both of us, but it was a pretty Gusty day at Grand Vue. I par and Paul caught a… Continue

Timmons with Bill

I called Bill last night so Bill and Carla met me for a round at Timmons this afternoon. It has been nearly 4 weeks since I played last. I have been riding 3 or 4 times a week and that has displaced my disc golf time, but I am going to make an effort to play at least once a week and hopefully twice. It was an odd round but I am happy with it (even though Bill really blew me away!) I was +2 on the front 9 with 3 penalty strokes on #2, 5, and 9. That led to bogeys on #3, 5, and 9 with a birdie on… Continue
