JP Moseley Ice Bowl Post tourney - problems in personal life.

So, this has been one of the best and worse weeks of my life.

First the good news:

I ran my first tournament: the JP Moseley Ice Bowl. Aside from the Pizza guy being late, it ran better and faster than expected. It was a ton of fun and I have had nothing but rave reviews from the players so far. I added an island green to the course and we (locals) have decided to make it a permanent addition to the course. I definately toughened up the course and proved what it could be.… Continue

First time TD expirience and more....

Its been a minute since I have posted... mainly because I have been working on directing my first event which is scheduled for February 7th. Its so much work, I had no idea. But I am proud of the work I am doing and I believe I have done a really good job. I have managed to conduct a tournament without having to come out of pocket one penny, I raised 800 dollars for the local foster home, set a record in ga for recreational sign up, and managed to get a pretty good professional field with… Continue

A lost friend has been found. My sidearm has been discovered once again. Personal record shot!

So in my last blog is discussed the pain i felt and the lost control of my sidearm.

Instead of being rash and giving up on my natural shot, i decided to analyze what I thought i was doing wrong. By just using basic physics I was able to discover that I was putting too much spin on my shots. So when I was trying to throw a s curve or an understable disc I was turning them over and not giving them enough height to fade back.

So I went back to the drawing board and tried to… Continue

So most people who have read my blogs or posts know that I am a forehand dominate player.

~ Well not anymore.

Over the last 2 months me and some buddies have been practicing at this field that has lights (because we do not have time to play in the daytime anymore.) We were basically in it to improve on distance as my local course is a long one with 4 par 4s and a 5. Dont know the footage, but a pro ranked in the top 50 in the world shot 9 down to give you a feel for how… Continue

Now thats what im talking about! Real High School Football....

So for those who have never chated with me or talked to me before, Im am a part time high school football scout for ESPN during football season.

Well last night I had an assignment to scout a certain player in Griffin, GA and I had a great game.

A little background on the teams that played last night. They are in a small town and there isnt a lot of money to go around either. Both teams/schools share a football field that is located in the county and have for 60 years.… Continue

The HotLanta expirience. My first tournament.

So I havent been on in awhile, so I thought i would give an update on how my 1st tournament went.

If you have been following my blogs that discussed the preparation I put into the tournament you would know that I set out with two goals in mind.

1) to finish 10 under par or less each round

2) to make the final group on Sunday.

Of coarse everyone's goals are to win, I thought these goals however would put me in position to try and win.

I am… Continue

weekend before the big dance

So in preparation for the big tournament, i am playing a practice tournament.

I am playing at the same exact time and taking the 1 hour lunch break.

Today was the first two rounds, i played them a Redan. I shot 61 and 62. Even though i feel that isnt enough to get it done a Redan, i wouldnt feel bad heading into JP moseley with that. JP Moseley is my home course and I am hoping that the familiarity will play a big role.

Overall i played very consistently. Hole… Continue

Best score, better putting, and better game.

So in preperation for the Hotlanta (my first real tournament, and my first since signing up for the PDGA) I have played 5-7 rounds a week. I have also bought a basket and joined in on Mr. Ellis' putting clinic. In addition to that, I think I have finally figured out the innova flight chart and I am now selecting the right disc for the job and expiriencing some really consistent driving.

Of coarse you by now know where this is heading... yes I shot some of my best scores this week and… Continue
