Timmons Park

I played 27 holes at Timmons Park with Bill and Steve. Bill was there at four and we started playing a round. Bill lost his favorite disc off the 14th tee and we spent about 20 minutes looking for it. We finally played the hole and Steve appeared. He played the rest of the round with us, then Bill went back to 14 to look for his disc while Steve and I went on. We were putting in on #2 and Bill showed up and had found his disc. We played the rest of the front nine but it was brutal. The weather… Continue

Late to Timmons Park

I was supposed to meet Bill at Timmons at 4 but I didn't get off work until 4. Steve met up with Bill and they were playing on #6 when I finally got there. I played 7 through 18 at +4 with bogeys on 9, 10, 12, and 18. Then we played the first 6 and I birdied 2, 3, and 6. Steve left after #6 and Bill and I played through #9. I birdied #9 to come back to even par after 21 holes. I gave away putts on 9, 12, 13, 15, 17, and 1. So I could have scored much better. But I have to be happy with what I… Continue

Boiling Springs

Coop and I played Va-Du-Mar park today. We played the 19 holes from the short tees except for #4 and we played the original 10 from the long tees. I was +10 on the19 and +11 on the 10. I played so-so but took double bogeys on 10 and 11. On the 10 holes I blew up on #5 with a 7. Once I was in the green briars I couldn't fight my way out. I absolutely couldn't throw sidearm and my backhand was all over the place. I finally threw a great sidearm on the 29th hole of the day. I wish that I had found… Continue

Timmons Park

Bill and I played Timmons tonight and I was so-so. I finished +1 with a 55. I birdied 1, 6, 9, and 13, but I took a double bogey on five with a throw OB across the creek and bogeys on 11 and 17. I gave up easy putts on 7, 11, and 17 and nailed a long downhill putt on 16. On 15 my tee shot hit the left hand guardian tree and shot clear back to the 14th fairway. I had no approach from there, but banged it through the saplings. It was still 25 feet away, but my putt grabbed the chains and fell in.… Continue

Gower Park

Cooper and I went to Gower after work and played 3 rounds of 9 holes each. I was +2, +4, and even par. I was driving okay but my approaches were erratic. I also missed a couple of gimme putts and a couple other putts that I should have made. I also made a couple putts that shouldn't have gone in. They have the new fencing up around the tennis courts and basketball courts and are pouring concrete between the two. I had a pair of cutoffs on under my sweat pants and they were so loose that they… Continue

Timmons Park in the Snow

I got off work late today and was passing by Timmons at 4 o'clock when I normally play meet Bill. I pulled in to see if he was there and he was! I was in my work clothes - bib overalls, a flannel shirt, and work shoes. Carla stayed in the car to stay out of the snow. We played the first 6 holes and it was pretty ugly, but we had a good time. We knew that we were in trouble when we started down the hill on #2. I assured Bill that at least one of us was going to bust our butts on the hill. As I… Continue

Timmons Park

I played Timmons after work today with Bill and Coop and I was absolutely terrible at +9. I missed 2 gimme putts on #1 and #2, then clanged one off the basket on 5 and rolled into the creek and clanged my next one off the basket for a 7. I also clanged birdie putts on #7 and #17. I wrung out long putts for birdies on 15 and 16 but it was a tough round. Of course a tough round of disc golf beats an easy day at work any time! I actually wasn't all that bad, but sometimes a little off sure wrecks… Continue

Holmes Park

Steve and I played 2 rounds at Holmes today. I was +2 and +2. I felt like I played okay the first time around and terrible the second time, but I had the same scores. We ran into Gresham and his wife picnicking at the shelter. I hadn't seen G in a long time.

Timmons Park

I played 18 holes with Bill tonight and I had my share of problems. I ended up at +4/58. I birdied 1,3,16,and 17, bogeyed 7,11, and 14, took a double on 12, and a triple on 5. I was very sore from working out the previous evening and that was bothering me. Overall I played okay for me, but my drive on 5 nicked a tree and caused a lot of havoc. I shanked my tee shot on 12 and had to fight through the greenbriars to get out. That exhausted me and it took until th e16th hole to catch my breath. I… Continue

Timmons Park

Bill, Steve, and I played Timmons after work tonight. I was a little inconsistent, but ended up at even par. I birdied 1 and 2 while I bogeyed 11 and 15. I popped up my birdie putt on 15 then it rolled out of the honey-pot and back down the hill. Steve left then BIll and I played the front nine again. I birdied 2 and 6, but I gave away a gimme putt on 4 and teed off a tree on 5 into the creek for a double bogey.

Gower Park

Coop, Daddy Coop, and I played 18 holes at Gower tonight. This is the first time that Wayne has ever played and he was +7. Steve and I were both +4. Wayne had a good time and I think that we may see him start playing with us. Wayne is 60 which would make him eligible to play Senior Grand Masters division. Wayne is a good bowler, golder, hunter, and fisherman, so maybe he'll add disc golf to his resume.

Easley Ice Bowl

I played the Easley Ice Bowl today and finished 2nd of 5 in rec division. I played so-so in the morning at +15 and I really blew up in the afternoon on the back 9 and was +21. So i threw a 144 for 36 holes. For some reason I usually play very poorly at Easley. I like the course, but I score very poorly.

Gower Park

Coop and I played two rounds tonight with his nephew Ty. I was +3 and +2. When we finished we ran into Pat Husted and talked to him about tomorrow's Ice Bowl in Easley. I have lost 6 pounds since Monday on this diet.

Gower Park

Cooper and I played Gower today in miserable weather. It was 30 degrees, but the wind was brutal. Coop overslept so I played a round alone +4, then two with him +5 and +4. The wind really tore our game up! Today is also my 54th birthday.
