Doubles is really a frustrating thing. When you're on, it doesn't matter. Well, unless you're absolutely on
to a sick level.... but it doesn't matter, usually, if you've got a weak partner. Some locals consider it taboo to call certain veterans of the community "weak" partners. Today I drew Paul Hawk, and he's one of my favorite draws. I have more fun playing with Hawk on my card than anybody else. But he is also a sub-850 player. He can have his days on the green, putting the disc… Continue

DISCLAIMER: This post is littered with sarcasm. For example, that
first paragraph just below this? Dripping with the whole sarcasm thing.
True story. Keep in mind that this is a Blog... It is a web log of my
own experiences. Hence the topic being what I know the best, me using
myself as a primary character and as the main example when I'm talking
Did you know that on the 8th day, God created me? True story. Just ask
the people on… Continue

Not much going on in my disc golf world. Just a lot of field work over the course of the past few days. I was red hot yesterday on the green. I did the same thing I've been doing for the last week: backhand hucks out, forehand comebackers to the basket, and then putt from the spots the forehands land at. I also added in some work with my mids, backhand out and back both, though some work has been done with Buzzz forehands.
On my third set through, today, I hucked my Destroyer out on a… Continue

Ahh... nothing like Christmas. There's just a different feeling around the house during the holidays. Right now I'm sitting back with a nice honey brown... smooth brown honey lager. My dog, Atticus, is guarding his dog biscuit instead of eating it. I'm pleasantly ignoring an episode of Seinfeld and getting ready to absentmindedly pay scant attention to Scrubs. Can't complain one bit. I love the holidays.
I got what I wanted for Christmas... a couple hundred bucks from the parents for… Continue

One thing about shifting up to the Open Division is that it seems to have changed my outlook on things a tad. In October I remember I went to a few unsanctioned and D-Tier level tournaments when I was still in Advanced. I looked at them like any other tournament, just hoping to play as hot as I can and win as many discs as I could to swing back around and sell. Now I'm looking at an unsanctioned tournament on January 1st. All I can think about is how few top pros are likely to be there. I'm… Continue

So, I made a post a day ago on here stating that I was easily better than all but eight or nine guys in our local community. I named three guys that I thought were better than myself. So what happened today? I went out for doubles and got paired up with one of the three guys I mentioned. I got paired up with Chris Hoyle, actually. If someone asked me who the best player in the area was I would say it was him. Naturally, I catch him on the day one of his cars is in the shop and his other car is… Continue

I've noticed something as my game has continued to improve. Suddenly, I'm not one of the guys just hanging on in my local community. As recently as this spring I was one of the guys really hoping to pair up with a top player at Sunday Doubles. Suddenly, it isn't that way anymore. I'm still hoping to pair up with one of the other top guys, because that'd be a sure-thing win... but now there are people that actually want me as a partner, that are excited and hopeful when they get paired up with… Continue

The hardest part about winter practice is all mental. It is hard enough to get out and spend an hour working on your putting during the summer when it is 95 degrees out with high humidity, but when you have the urge to get out and thrown you can slip on some shoes, grab your putters, and just do it. It is a completely different story when winter comes along.
It is coming up on midnight and I haven't been out to putt today. I went to the gym and played basketball for two hours instead.… Continue

2008 is almost on top of me. Another year gone by. I'm happy with my year. In January, when I was just a ~910 rated player starting my second year of competitive golf I made a promise to myself that I would get to 950. By my calculations when the ratings come out on January 29th, 2009 for the 2008 calendar year I will be at 953. Not bad.
That said, I've started playing in the Open Division. Trophy Only right now, because I can't afford full entry. Once 2009 rolls around I'll start… Continue

I don't really have a blog anymore. I mean, on MySpace I post my fiction for feedback, but thats about it. I tried to start a disc golf blog at one point, but it didn't work out. It wasn't very interesting. I have a strong memory, and the posts turned into shot-by-shot accounts of my tournament rounds. Boring, right? Right. Nobody gives a damn about every shot, just the ebb and the flow. The emotion and the physical details of the world. Maybe I can turn this into something like… Continue
