Ice Bowl in the AM

Right now we're looking at 29 degree high, 60% precipitation, intermittent flurries and snow showers. Primarily in the AM. We're looking at a tee-time temperature of 23 with a wind-chill bringing it down to 14 degrees. Figured I'd elaborate a little on how my bag looks right now since it seems like that's a popular blog topic of late, and my bag has been very interesting in how it has been used of late, at least to me. I'm definitely changing my tendencies off the teepad.

High Speed… Continue

Disc Dream

Dreams are weird. You need to get them down right away, or else you forget them, right? Maybe. Anyway I'm just going to go over the tiny bits I remember...

We were walking between holes at the Toboggan course, between hole three and four and we came on a new hole. The hole was about 330, had an immediate ridge in front of the teepad you couldn't see over (similar to hole three at Norwalk, Ohio for those that are local) and then played over a reservoir to a postage stamp green,… Continue

Midnight Putting Games

So, like I said in the previous blog post I went down to Columbus with Ziggy Bierekoven and Geoff Bennett for the Columbus Ice Bowl at the Hambrick Memorial Course at Hoover. It was a solid event, but the real fun was the night before the tournament to be honest. We stayed at Jordan Rauch's place. We played putting games in the basement nonstop. Jordan has an area that allows for up to 45 foot putts, I think the longest we bothered with were 35 footers. We did everything weird we could, from… Continue

More Money, More Money

More money, more problems? Not when you're damn near broke it ain't! So far I'm two tournaments into 2008, and 19 days in... I'm up to $210 in unsanctioned tournament earnings. It isn't much, but its a start. I took second today at the Columbus Ice Bowl, at the Hambrick Memorial Course. I actually tied for first with Geoff Bennett and lost in a sudden death tiebreaker. He got $100, I got $60. Sucks that I lost it, I was actually in with a strong lead after one round, he had the hot round by, I… Continue

Shakespearean Sonnets & Disc Golf

Two topics I hadn't anticipated covering in conjunction here... Mainly because I don't like writing about myself and my life for creative writing purposes. I don't mind writing about my own life as a log, but in terms of creative writing: it is really frustrating. I backed myself into this one, though. We were asked, for my Creative Writing course, to describe a recent event. Naturally I chose to describe the tournament I played in on the first. I did this without knowing that our next job… Continue

Welcome to Winter Golf....

Not much to blog about... just the frustration inevitable with winter field work. Stupid decision of the day, doing field work in a couple of inches of snow near dusk. I'm down a couple of distance drivers. I think I've got a pretty good bead on the Destroyer, and if I don't find it I have a backup waiting... but it is annoying. I'll be up early to slide my feet through the snow. The Wraith on the other hand... well, that's going to take some effort. It caught a wind gust BAD and took off clear… Continue

Disc Resolutions for 2008

It is 5:40 in the morning as I begin this post. Clearly I have failed in one of last year's resolutions to always get myself to bed at a sane hour. My other resolutions were for weight training, and putting.

The weight training resolution wasn't a total failure, but it wasn't a success either. It lasted me for five weeks, into the middle of February. At that point I caught the flu, lost a lot of strength, and never went back to the rec center. I finally picked it back up in early… Continue

First Open Win

Well, since Justin has been begging for it... I guess I'll recount the improbability of yesterday. The title of the post pretty much gives away what happened.

I spent the past couple of weeks doing field work and telling myself that I was doing everything I could to facilitate a win in Open at the unsanctioned tournament on January 1st at Norwalk, Ohio's Great Blue Heron DGC. But even through all of that, I don't think I totally believed I could pull off a win.

We got there at… Continue
