Doubles is really a frustrating thing. When you're on, it doesn't matter. Well, unless you're absolutely on
to a sick level.... but it doesn't matter, usually, if you've got a weak partner. Some locals consider it taboo to call certain veterans of the community "weak" partners. Today I drew Paul Hawk, and he's one of my favorite draws. I have more fun playing with Hawk on my card than anybody else. But he is also a sub-850 player. He can have his days on the green, putting the disc… Continue

Conditions not too bad, some tees were pretty icy though. Footing a definite issue.
Josh, Tom, and Rich all beat me, but we all sucked pretty bad: scores were +6 to +9 from the front tees.
Well, playing about once a week through the winter so far won't do much for my game, but better than nothing.
Now, please check out the tracks by my band, Joint Chiefs, posted on my page.

Bolivar, OH-- My wife and I travelled to my home region of NE Ohio for my family's Christmas get to together. My brother Joey, brother-inlaw Mike, and I played three courses in three days. Thursday we played at the course in Lincoln Park in Massillon. Mike spotted Joey and I 8 strokes, and I ended up winning round 1 by a stroke. Friday we played… Continue

The year 2007 saw a slight decrease in the number of tournaments I was able to compete in but included the installation of another course in my area, running two tournaments, and my first disc golf vacation.
The year started with finishing up work on the Prairie Disc Golf Course in Thornton, Iowa. We got everything finished in time for the grand opening that was held on June 3. This fell on the same day as the Story City Skunk River Open that I had competed in last year. The grand… Continue

True story. Keep in mind that this is a Blog... It is a web log of my

The new year will be upon us shortly, and I'll be turning 50 shortly thereafter. Here are a few observations to help the youngsters along the way.
- 50 is NOT the new 30; it's the same old 50 its always been. The hair is gray, whats left of it anyway. The knees are shot and all my son's buddies insist on calling me "Mister G".
- The math even proves my point. I went to the doctor a month back, his prognosis... I am as…

What a sight. My friend emailed me a link to this site today and I have been on it now on and off for about 5 hours. Probably doing what most of you are doing. Checking everyone out, uploading photos, and trying to customize my page. This was a GREAT idea Terry. Thank you for making it.

Ben and I just finished our first round on this new course
. He beat me by 8 strokes, with a 65 to my 73 . . . and we played the Am pads! This course goes into my Top Ten - and it doesn't even have concrete tees yet.
Deis is a mix of open, semi-open, and woods, with tremendous elevation and very long holes. There are three tees for each hole, Rec, Am, and Pro, with Am and Pro combined on 2-3 holes. All of this is… Continue

Gotta figure out a way to get a hole in these damn things. Turned out pretty cool though!!

That's the way to do it.. a mass teaching of PDGA rules to a billion youth.. well maybe not a billion, (well actually a billion would probably do it!)
By spreading a blanket of knowledge through the schools, PDGA rules teaches them all how to respect each other and the land. What kid doesn't love to adhere to game rules? So as more and more PE teachers begin to teach it in PE lessons, the PDGA rules act as a road map to a Nobel Peace prize.… Continue

I also have my trip to vegas and the memorial lined up!!! All in all, this was the best christmas, and they seem to be getting better and better. I am very Grateful. Continue

This year is just about in the books and it's been a crazy one. Just like the previous 3 or 4 years I enjoyed traveling to play disc golf as well as promoting it. There are some obvious highlights that come to mind that mix in with the same fun I have year after year at events.
Playing with my good buddy, Mike Schwieger, is always a blast and we started the year off right by repeating as champions for the Random Beaver Round Up event I host.… Continue

Ben and I are heading out shortly for Dover, Ohio where, it says in the guide, there is a course that averages 500' per hole. Val Jenkins says it is beautiful, too. We'll let you know later. (We should arrive there about 11 am.)

If there is one thing that this site has taught me it's that I'm not happy where I'm at in my playing ability and makes me want to strive to be better. It makes me want to get out and take time to practice and play in tournaments. It doesn't just come from playing a course. Thanks for all of the encouraging words from everyone and advice that I've gathered along the way. I will be sponsored. :)

Not much going on in my disc golf world. Just a lot of field work over the course of the past few days. I was red hot yesterday on the green. I did the same thing I've been doing for the last week: backhand hucks out, forehand comebackers to the basket, and then putt from the spots the forehands land at. I also added in some work with my mids, backhand out and back both, though some work has been done with Buzzz forehands.
On my third set through, today, I hucked my Destroyer out on a… Continue

I enjoy disc golf with good friends. I also enjoying consuming hops with those friends while disc golfing. I throw mostly Discraft while an occasional Innova driver will make it in and out of my bag. I enjoying owning Anthony Bee and Taylor Cimala. They are both very very sad they can never beat me at disc golf. The EMDG owns your soul. I also enjoy Michigan Football, Music ranging anywhere from hot jazz to ignt rap to the Phish from vermont. Punched yo numba, ill hit you back.......im just… Continue
