I would like to thank all my friends and family for thier support during my recovery from a pretty severe fall that could have been alot worse than it was. For those who do not know, I fell 12 feet out of a tree I was trimming on the Beaver Creek Mini Disc Golf Course on March 30,2009. Yes I also had a running chainsaw in my hand at the time. On the way down, I threw the chainsaw, Hit my ladder, hit the side bed of my truck and landed on my left side with a pretty good thump. I had the wind… 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.
I recently made a disc golf blog and I was wondering if I could get some help with it. I started out with the information below and I would like some comments on what to add to it to make it better.
Disc golf is a game played with a frisbee instead of a ball. The object of the game is very similar to traditional golf or ball golf as disc golfers call it. The golfer tries to get the disc into the Disc Golf Basket in the fewest number of frisbee throws.
Today at the Spiritwood Skins Tournament. I played the Pro division and took 8 of 22 skins. Alex Gignoux, Jon Graff, and Ben Huss took 4 each. Shane ??? sorry I didn't catch his last name...took 2. Erik Nugent took 0. Not a bad showing for the day. Each hole was worth $6, we each paid $1 per hole for a total of $22 plus $2 entry fee. My game is coming around very quickly this year. Probably at least a 970 rated tourney and could possibly be closer to 990 based on scores from last year.

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

We just finished an interview with Mark Ellis. If you watch one of his Discraft videos, read one of his discussion forum posts or chat with him on discgolfersr.us, you’ll find he’s passionate, competitive, well spoken and deeply involved in many levels of the game.

Super-bright LEDs are great but I find that taping these to a coin cell is problematic. Also it makes the disc under-stable. I would like to see a if anyone out there has found any innovation worth trying.

It wasn't suppose to snow today but 2 1/2 inches fell anyway. Seems to be the winter way around south central PA. Lancaster winter weather seems to be on the edge of lots of snow or nothing but slush and muck! Today was snow. You've got to love to play disc golf while it's snowing. Big or small disc golf, it's always a blast. Juddy, better known as Crink, showed up in his $250.00 Audi that smells like "old" from 15 feet away. We played the original… Continue

I started playing recreational disc golf around the age of 17, thanks to a friend of mine Al. Allan Beasley would instruct me whether I liked it or not (thanks Al), I've also had a whole lot of other great players to learn from (i.e. Tim Skellenger, Jerry and Brody Miller, Sean Phillips, Ladd Klink, Ty Baker, Jeramie Lankins are some of the names). In my beginning frolfing years I would just go out for fun with the guys, but then my pops signed me up for my first competitive tournament, the… Continue
