The Team Jenkins Disc Golf Documentary was set to begin filming the weekend of April 4, so our family made plans to fly down to Houston, TX where Director Rob Engle has a large production studio where he works. It actually happens to be the largest production studio in Houston. Val and I were flying in from Atlanta, GA where we played the Atlanta Open National Tour Event the previous weekend… Continue
Yes, Mr. Zubie, received his HUGE surprise package. And the most important rule of being crowned WORST PLAYER OF THE YEAR 2008 is that you ALWAYS have to say "PEACE" to fellow players, NEVER get angry with another player (unless they are playing unfair) and ALWAYS be the diplomat of the game representing the PDGA, players WORLD wide and ALL disc golf promoters and supporters with a smile and a high five ( or something equivalently positive). and then there was this… Continue

One of the most defined skills of any professional player is the ability to throw accurate and precise approaches in any situation. These shots are most helpful when playing long holes that are just out of reach off the tee or in certain predicaments following errant drives on wooded holes when a stroke-saving shot is required.
Well, I found a miss-priced Star Wraith at Sports Authority on Saturday night (marked at $6.99) and picked it up for two reasons. #1 It was over 1/2 price for Star plastic here in Eugene Oregon and #2 my online nickname has been for years Wraith (I know, silly newby picking up a disc just for the name).
I have found that one thing seems to missing from all of the disc golf sites. REVIEWS ON DISCS FOR AND BY NEW PLAYERS!!! So this is my first blog post as a newer player reviewing a… Continue
So we arrived into Boston after returning from Sweden where we spent the last two weeks on the EuroTour. The Swedish tournaments were amazing and had some consistent finishes in both the Stockholm Open (5th) and the Scandinavian Open (4th). Our good friend Tim Walsh picked us up and provided us with a place to stay with his family throughout the… Continue
On our travels back to the East after the Big D in the Desert, Val and I played back to back tournaments in Kentucky. The second event being the Disc 'n Dat Bluegrass Open, one of my favorites due to the courses and the travel vicinity to my parents home in Ohio, an annual tournament that I used to play every year when I lived back home. It is also… Continue

Val and I arrived early into Primm, Nevada on Thursday afternoon along with Cary Trotter and Andrew Rich, whom drove 19 hours the day before just to make it down to the event. We drove out to the dry lake flats to get in some early throws and practice our distance technique. We were soon… Continue
