I am pretty much your average disc golfer. I am 45, 6'2", 238lbs, and I played baseball growing up on into college as a pitcher. I stayed active into my mid 30's, but my job put me at a desk and having kids stopped my athletic activities. I also tore my left ACL and have yet to have it fixed.
I picked up disc golf about 18 months ago and it just clicked with me. I have played close to 500 rounds in that time and I've lost 52 pounds. I feel great, my left knee is pain free,… Continue

How many times has any of the following happened to you?
* You miss badly on a tricky and/or risky putt, and almost immediately after it leaves your hand you realize that although you thought you had decided to go for it, the disc comes out weak and unsure- maybe wobbling more than usual and way too low.
* You hit a tree right after you made not hitting the tree your primary focus
* You catch yourself thinking about your overall score, and the impact your last throw had or… Continue

You've heard of an island green in golf, right? Where you tee off near a
shoreline to a green situated on a small piece of land surrounded by
water? The course featured in today's post is nothing like that. In
fact, it is much better described as a mountain course considering the
fact that it is 5,000 feet up the side of a 10,000 foot-tall mountain
and every hole has some type of slope in play. But this course, Poli
Poli, is also situated on an island in the middle… Continue

I travel fairly frequently, and I end up spending a decent
amount of waking hours in a hotel room. Even when I'm in places that
have courses near enough to get in a quick round, I usually just scurry
around the course, note it's highlights despite the fact that it's no
DeLaveaga, then split. When I'm on the road, I rarely get in any putting
practice at all.
So one time I pulled out my putters in the
hotel room, wedged myself in one corner, and aimed for a… Continue

This time last year I played in the USDGC for the first and only time. I
didn't know it at the time, but I played with a torn rotator cuff. I
did know it hurt like heck, though. After the first practice round, in
which I managed a +1 and figured 'this isn't so bad as long as you play
clean golf and hit all your putts', my arm was as useless as those
little front appendages of a Tyrannosaurus Rex's. But I did my best,
which was equal to most everyone else's worse.… Continue

Disc Golf in a Vacuum(TM)
catchy phrase I've come up with to describe the bundle of ideas about
the mental side of golf that make up my disc golf philosophy. It means
many different things in different situations, but in general is all
about embracing, appreciating, and learning from each shot we attempt.
Before, during, and after. In a vacuum, there are no 'pars,' or 'rounds'
or even 'holes.' There are only shots. Look… Continue

Usually when you hear 'disc selection', you think in terms of which disc
in your bag is best suited to execute your next shot. Today I'm talking
about something else, a concept that could maybe be called 'disc
selection for disc preservation'. It results from one of the major
distinctions between disc golf and ball golf- the fact that our discs
are the equivalent to their clubs and
you're a ball golf… Continue

Field practice has been okay lately. Not great. Okay. I'm maxing out between 360 and 370 although my main field is unuseable due to reseeding and fertilizing. My aim is a bit less wonky than it's been over the last few months. I'm focusing more on a downfield target or line to hit so that's helped a bit. I'm still not feeling the big snap or effortless quality I was back in October but I'm working more consciously on that.
As to round play. I'm playing 2-3 rounds a week at a random… Continue
