new form

I had the pleasure of a private lesson with Ron Convers recently and am now working to erase bad driving habits formed over 8 years of casual golf. in fifteen minutes, I learned a few techniques to help take my drive to the next level. I basically have to relearn how to tee. but, after working on it for a week or so, I see exactly why I needed to scrap and start anew. I am now crushing my mids as far as my drivers and my choice driver, the Valk, is flying at least forty ft farther than it was… Continue

someone got a new spider!!!!!

I think I will name her Pinkie. My hubby bought me a 171 champ spider during the Doo Dah and day two went fabulous! she held her lines with just the right amount of fade at the end. I was impressed with the amount of control I had with a brand new disc, minimal errant shots. I did hit one tree eight foot in front of me, but I'm guessing she just wanted a little breaking in action. I was still able to use the old tie dye 166 for a sweet 90 ft putt to save par, so there is plenty of room in my…

flicks: two 150 esp, 169 z, 172 z, and a first run 170 something, stays in my bag for good chi.

roller evoultion

So, I have been working pretty consistantly on them and they have become a part of my competitive game, but they are so finnicky. I have been forehand rolling with my flick (and every so often with my avenger if I want less distance). What I need to figure out is how crosswind will affect my shot. Sometimes I think it will hold my shot up only to have it turn over. Some of my best rollers have been in 15-20 mph crosswinds, and also some of the worst. with no wind I am getting solid distance on… Continue

Friz' 09

Boom boom train with the chili peppers... sweet times! the Gorillaz were kickin' it and NIN was just on the other side of the darkness. Props to Carpet and PeeWee for the sound system; I took advantage of it. My dreds were looking fine in form and my dyes were SIC! I wore a lot of cookie and nicole's dyes (Ponca crew rocks). No dyes from the friz though:( I did manage to snag one of the few frizforever shirts so all is good). Rain, rain, go away; and it did just in time... for the weekend. I… Continue

The forehand roller I never knew I had...

I am pretty excited in the newest development of my game, a forehand roller. I have only been working on this for a few weeks and they already go as far as my average backhand or sidearm drive. the process started more or less as an exit strategy for sneaking out of the woods after a poor drive. Sweet! It worked and then some. Right now I am still in the experimental stages; I am working with my Flicks, Avenger and Xcaliber. I have tried my sidewinder as well, but with less success than my… Continue

DooDah was doodariffic!

Saturday was typical Kansas discgolf weather: Hot and windy with a high dose sun. Sunday was absolutelyl beautiful. The clouds rolled in just as we hit the heat of the day. could not have asked for better timing. The ACDGC did a great job of readying both Herman Hill and Oak Park. Something like $4,000 in added sponserhip including discs, snacks, coupons, and Pizza provided by Little Deb and Nick (Bunch Masonry)for all players Sunday afternoon. My drives were looking great all weekend, even… Continue

consistancy is the key

I had a pretty solid round at singles last night. no cash, but I only shot one over my handicap (which is three strokes lower that I thought). My drives felt smooth, backhand and forehand. I only threw one UD which, as usual, was extremely consistant. I didn't miss a single put from 15ft in and only one or two from 20. I never ended up in the rough, very rare for 18 holes + kile. I am definitely itching for another round like it. maybe a few. The company was enjoyable; the weather was… Continue

As a matter of fact, yes, I do throw like a girl.

I actually made it to doubles the other night( thanks to the tornado warning friday night causing a postponement until Saturday). I was pretty stoked when we took my drives on 1, 2, and 4, and 5 (and a few others). So when my partner was talking to a buddy from the other team (who was beating us by two) about it not being as fair because we can't catch up to them because he is playing with a girl, I took slight offense. So I laid it on pretty thick for the rest of the evening, especially when… Continue

I talk about it enough, I may as well blog it.

Discgolf has become a lifestyle. no, no... an addiction. I think about it when I wake up, go to work and even in bed (sorry honey). I am finally starting to see some steady improvement. Those lucky shots are becoming much more regular. I am still waiting on that first ace, but I have had a few runs. I did really well at The Rock in Salina a few weeks ago (last time I picked up a disc. sad, huh, too much school work and not enough DG time!) I am hoping to take that momentum into Doo Dah in… Continue
