First AM2 tourney

Used my new 900 rating this weekend in Ypsilanti & entered my first tourney in Am2.... 4 strokes off the lead going into round 2 & pulled out a victory by staying calm through the storm so to speak. Couple inches of snow fell during the 2nd round. Good start to the move up eh :)

PDGA site is down right now & round ratings weren't up earlier today, I'd assume they're both pretty good. I was less than 5 strokes I think from the Am1 winner.

Ace pool... I couldn't… Continue

Ratings update/ Goals

So early this year after my first tournament (a dismal performance @ Bowling Green) I decided to focus on my game & set a goal of getting my rating to 900+ this year. To start the 08 season I was 852, after BG 842. Lots of practice & a couple dozen rated rounds later I hit 900 even with today's update!

I'll now focus on consistency. Putting, putting, putting. I think my weak point now is still a mid range putt 25-33ft. I'm pretty confident in longer "putts" that I can jump.… Continue

Every week at Handicap league we have a ctp from the club for a choice of disc. The previous weeks winner gets to pick the hole. I aced this weeks ctp! I've always wanted to put that marker on the basket!

Tour & more update...

The tour is going great! I managed to qualify for the PDGA United States Amatuer Championships last weekend on the famed toboggan course in Milford, Michigans Kensignton Metropark. The course is absolutely amazing, incredibly well run event, with meals before & after your rounds, tee times, & tons of extra games & activities.

I by no means thought my game was ready for an event like this, I finished 80th of 101 players. Not great by any means but considering I was the 2nd… Continue

Indy Leagues

5 weeks into leagues here in Indy, first 3 were to develope your handicap. I shot great 2 out of three of those weeks & not horrible the off week. With my handicap in order to cash I need to shoot like 4 down. Very possible since I average a couple above par at Washington Park and I usually leave a half dozen shots out on the course either missing 20 foot putts or nailing a tree early in a hole.

The first week I played intermediate & shot even beating the few guys in… Continue

Nailed my first Ace ever up in Ludington last weekend en route to an Am3 1st place finish. The Ace came on Beauty hole F 175' blind forehand with one of my newly accquired CFR Gators. Just a few holes after canning a 100ft bird with the very same Gator. Finished 1 down after the 48 hole event first under par tourney. I also hit the 50/50 CTP & qualified for MI States.
