I came to the realization yesterday and today how much disc golf means to me. You see, I grew up playing soccer. I played competitively from ages 5-20. From age 14-20, I played year round. Growing up I wanted to play college soccer. I played for a year and a half, and it wasn't what I wanted it to be. I hung up the cleats. That WAS my life for 15 years. This was the first fall season in 15 years that I wasn't playing soccer. This summer was the first season in 8 years that I wasn't playing…Continue

I'm not sure if anyone has blogged on this yet, but the world famous Shoe Tree at Morley Field in San Diego is no more.
High winds and heavy rain led to the tree's demise this past weekend. The weight of the hundreds of water-logged shoes hanging on its branches caused it to topple in the high winds. The shoe tree was a well-known San Diego landmark and definitely an icon in the disc golf world. This leaves us to wonder: "where will the next…Continue
Being laid up with a broken leg is drag ... I sit at home looking at my bag — the one I have been putting together for a few of months. I thought it would be a fun project for the winter to put together a bag of my favorite discs, all in RED. Not a silly thing to do when you live in the mountains of Colorado. It gets very hard to find your discs after the snow falls.
All those beautiful broken in discs come out and are stored until spring. Especially…Continue
Today in my spin class the instructor was featuring the guitarists from the Yardbirds. It made for a great workout. On one long, slow Clapton tune we stayed in the saddle. I had a good amount of resistance. I could feel myself both pushing down and pulling up with each stroke. The tune kept going and required us to get into "the zone" and continue pedaling. I realized that I was channeling the great German racer, Jan Ullrich. Ullrich was a powerful rider who could push huge gears and keep…Continue

I guess you could say I started the new year off with a lot of "SNAP". Managed to snap my tibia an fibula teeing off on a natural tee while playing day two at Crockett Park in Brentwood Tennessee during my Christmas vacation. Totally accidental slip during my x-step put me right on my a$$.
So to say the least, I'm in recovery mode for a few months, but will be trying to enjoy helping other players and clubs with events like the 2008 Ice Bowls that are coming up in our…Continue

Was out at Ottawa Park yesterday and the local news did a LIVE feed from the Disc Golf course.
What tops it off is that is my BOY steve-o walking by in the background. If you read this and get a free moment please shoot an e-mail to email@example.com thanking her for opening with the live…Continue

I thought I should maybe just give a little bit of my background in disc golf. I got hooked on throwing frisbees at the age of 12 and competed in the UK Overall Frisbee Championships in 1977. Next year I won the UK title and got a free trip to California to play in the World Frisbee Championships. That is when I played my first disc golf competition and first saw a basket, so I was "in at the deep end" in terms of competition, and also literally as my first throw went into a lake at La…Continue
The cold front has moved out, and back to normal weather here in Florida. Man was it cold in the mornings for a few days. High teens somedays! Not as damaging as the rain in California though.
Played a few rounds on Sunday. My putting woes continue. I am missing 15 footers way too much. I switched back to Magnets, and still trying to work out some of the kinks. On the other hand, my 30 footers are much more consistant.
Round 1, I managed to still cash in the handicapp league,…Continue
until yesterday. Team Rizbee rolled up to Redlands, CA for their inaugural Ice Bowl event, which is part of a three-tournament Ice Bowl Series (Redlands, Palm Desert, San Marcos). A field of about 20 played 18 holes on the 9-hole Ford Park DGC. Many players were probably scared off by the "storm of the century" that was supposed to dump several inches of rain on us yesterday, but didn't show in the morning. But I digress...
Bill Maury-Holmes, the TD referred to me as a sand-bagger as…Continue
