Jump Putts - The Great Illusion

I've been playing a lot more disc golf lately, gradually increasing to what is now averaging close to a round every 10 days or so. OK, not the 20 rounds every 10 days I likely averaged 10+ years ago, but I'm out there when I can, enjoying it.

One of the technique explosions in the sport during my distancing from the sport for a while (raising 5 kids, who has time?) is that of "jump putts". They've existed, in reality, about as long as the sport itself, but it is now a very trendy… Continue

Pilgrimage...part 2

Day 2: The Grange, Spotsylvania VA.

Leaving Georgetown, Bill and I pressed on, and arrived at The Grange. It was easy enough to find, just one turn once you leave the highway. We were very impressed. We met Mike Trapasso, who was very humble. We saw the clubhouse, with a mini pro shop and a ping pong table. Very cool. We picked up some discs, and I brought a Grange-logo disc back to Ohio as a gift for the Jenkins clan...though I believe none have visited there (yet). We then saw the… Continue

Team Jenkins! 2 World Champs!

Congratulations to Avery and Valerie Jenkins on their 2009 world championships! I was watching "live scoring" much of the week, and it was killing me last night, as I had to leave my Internet connection for the night when Avery was going to hole 4 of the sudden-death playoff. A good relief it was to see the end result this morning.

A possible pilgrimage next week...

In the last ten years, I have been busy with my wonderful wife, and what now are five beautiful children. Disc golf for the better part of this time has been casual throwing of discs at a Tri-state basket I bought from Avery Jenkins (best wishes, friend). We are departing next Friday for a week in Williamsburg, VA. In noticing the path to drive there, I can't help but recall a fond memory of a virtually identical journey on this trail...

In 1998 (I think), I was playing in PDGA… Continue

Inspiration for the Tribe?

Well, I put up the old Cleveland Indians' song from the early 80's on my page, and what do you know? They are off to a 6-1 start on their 9-game road trip! I suppose this'll jinx it, but perhaps the spirit of Joeboo lives on through DGRUS!

Roscoe Ewing Park - Medina, OH

Well, I have to say, after starting to play again, it is really amazing to see the improvements made to Roscoe Ewing Park, Ohio's first disc golf course. The new bridges, the longer holes, the dramatic pin placements...all of it make Roscoe a serious challenge from even the short tees. Not many easy holes here, but not many plain ones, either. You'll be playing a unique course when you head out there.

BIG kudos to team Jenkins for putting on a fantastic Roscoe's Revenge, as well as… Continue
