GBO & DiscGolfPlanet.TV

Like most of you I am a big fan of this. I was very excited the first time I logged in and watched the live coverage of the Memorial a few years ago. DiscGolfPlanet.TV has also given us  ( repeat..given, free of charge ) live coverage of the GBO, USDGC, Vibram open, Presidents Cup, National Collegiate DG Championship, and Kansas City Wide Open.

They also have archived most of the coverage for you viewing pleasure as well.

While they do ask for donations and have sponsors, the…

this weekends tournament.....

 so I am entered in rec again. my rating hasn't been updated since my last tournament. Which kinda sucks since I'm sure it went down.

 and I dont want the other players in the rec field to see my rating and think I am a bagger.


 on the other hand.. I am ready for this weekend and am hopeful for a top 5 finish.


 If I dont do that well at least I am going to seriously consider dropping my PDGA membership next year and only entering 1 or 2…

$15,000.00 ace shot tomorrow. oh joy.

no stress!!! haha.

I've entered 2 tournaments this year since I am employed again and had to back out of both of them at the last minute due to injuries. so this time I haven't played in a week and I'm not playing the doubles today.

I think I can survive 2 rounds tomorrow :)

I think it's for a good cause tomorrow and I helped put in the baskets at Turner park so maybe some good luck will come my way. so yeah.. I'm excited about the possibilities.

and $15,00 up for… Continue

Playing better going camo???!?!

hehe. catchy title ..eh?

yes.. I went camo today and played an awesome round.

there may have been other factors.. I was really focused on each shot.

played a course I haven't been to in several years at least and stil had a nice confidence boosting round. I really bombed a few at ZBOAZ..

was such a boost to my confidence though.

but now I'm wondering if I should go camo at my next tournament? haha.

anyways.. signed up for my first… Continue

ever have one of those days?

I got the call about 9 am to meet at cedar Hill at 10 for a round with my usual group.

my friend and his brother and 2 of his friends.

I wasnt expecting to play that day but was glad to go so off I went.

I'm still unemployed and just had enough gas to make it out there and back and had $2 to my name for the day and was about to run out of smokes.

Since I am the more active player amongst these guys and usually play better than them I thought today would be a… Continue

Pro-Tip # 7

alright, not really a "pro tip" since I am not a Pro :)

"pro tip" has become more of an internet meme than anything. and there is no # 1-6. I just wanted to start with # 7 :)

anyway. the Tip is... Stop playing when you feel like you've hurt something!! apparently continuing to play and hope it gets better only makes it worse?! go figure!! haha.

I did something to my elbow several months ago and kinda… Continue

The night before...

went out today and helped spot for the first round.

now I sit alone.

thinking about my rounds tomorrow.

contemplating strategy? what strategy?! throw like I always do.. right?

well.. hopefully better than that.

I have been going over shots and what disc to use since Wednesday in my head.

I have been dreaming about disc… Continue

back to Taos,NM for a few weeks! woo hoo!

Cant wait to get away from the Texas heat!! but I'll come back with only a few days till a tournament in the heat. sigh.

Anyways. I'm looking forward to getting to play Sipapu and twograyhares ( I hope I'm spelling that right) as well as the new course down the road a bit and maybe another course Ive missed in the area.

Sipapu is a butt kicker as it's up and down a ski resort .

and I know Bill and Susan Leslie travel a bit but it would be cool if they were in town as… Continue

a few days later...

and three days sober now. I see things a bit clearer now. same old crap, different story.

I checked in to CPC millwood in Arlington but quickly went thru what Ive been thru before in the 8+ times Ive been in rehab/hospitals.

I realized that I am the only person that can keep myself sober. no god or group can do that but me.

I can play the same game Ive played before or tread a new path. but a familiar one.

I was sober for almost three years recently and went thru depression… Continue

sad sad time. it;s here though.

I went 2 1/2 years sober before I tried to commit suicide again.
and a few years later after drinking again I fear I need help again.

so going into rehab for the bazillionth time tomorrow.
what will be different this time? I don't know.

something was different this last time and maybe I can pick up on that.

all I know is I need help and cant do this on my own.

wish me luck or whatever my fellow disc golfers. I need it.

two tournaments coming up. time to step up.

I've been doing good in the advanced division of my clubs local mini so I moved up to open, but didn't do to well .

but I went out after work last Saturday and played a round with another player who plays open and did really good. granted he was having a bad day, and I was playing fairly well, but it was a confidence booster.

I feel like I can be competitive at least at that level in the mini's,but now it's time to see if that translates to a tournament. I haven't finished too well in… Continue

Another day of discing.

started yesterday with me going to a demo event at a local ball golf course to try and sell some golf carts.

I got there early and set up my temp basket so I could practice putting since it didn't seem busy and I thought maybe I'd get to talk to some of the ball golfers about disc golf. never happened though.

I went out to Rockwall this morning and met my friend Scott for a casual round. it was humongously windy!!!

I started out good and Scott did as well, but then… Continue

good Karma

I was at Cedar Hills last Friday with my friend Scott and his brother Steve, who had never played disc golf before.

It was a beautiful day in Texas and even though the wind was crazy , at Lester Lorch park the wind doesn't come into play that much .

it was nice to be playing a round with a beginner, and we talked about his days of playing ultimate back in the day.

on hole 12 of the Coyote course I over drove with my custom dye Wraith and we couldn't find… Continue

the superflous journey ,,,,

I was lucky enough to take a week or so off from school to help my friend out in Taos, NM build and demo some stuff for his two cabins at 10000 ft elevation. we got a chance to play a bit of disc at a course I love, twogreyhares, owned by bill and his wife.. and a new course in Picarus pueblo that has a few interesting shots, but otherwise as Ben has described it.

I lost my favorite driver, a 12x Wraith on a huge shot over a canyon the first day we played it.

the next hole… Continue

Back to New Mexico!!

I get to drive up to just outside Taos with my friends Girlfriend to stay at their cabin near Sipapu on Thursday for a week. I love it up there and cant wait to play two grey hares and the new course nearby and maybe another while I'm there.

too bad Sipapu is closed down for the Ski season already.

weather in the 40's. good food and friends and some great scenery and disc golf with nothing to worry about for a week. should be great. gonna try and check out a course in red river… Continue

Watching a tournament

Since I couldn't play in it, I decided to stop by the VPO this weekend in Arlington,TX. I heard Avery Jenkins would be there and knew the names of some other great players that would be there so I figured it would be a good chance to be a spectator for a change, and maybe see a friend or two.

I found a spot to watch a few holes form a good vantage point and sat down to watch. card after card came by and I saw some great throws as well as some not so good ones,haha. What slowly sank… Continue

Titledisc open in Rockwall

will be my first tournament this year. I'll have to get out there soon to practice a few rounds.

I feel bad that I havent been able to renew my PDGA membership, but oh well. being unemployed kinda sucks.

I guess if I had to choose, and it looks like I did..... I chose to play a tourney rather than renew, although I know I will renew as soon as I can.

now to try and get a friend or two to go play it also. I have a feeling they will wuss out as usuall. anyone else have… Continue

Injuries suck!!!

So I pulled a muscle really bad in a mini a few weeks ago. 3 and 1/2 weeks now. it still has not healed. what I have learned from this and another injury I had is as soon as I feel like something is wrong I should stop. weather in the middle of a tournament or not.

It really sucks not being able to play though. I've gone out a few times and tried to throw a hole or two and it just not healed yet and I feel like if I would have stopped when I knew I injured myself I would have healed a lot… Continue
