Gower Alone

I went to Gower right after work. I only went around once for 9 holes. I birdied #1,2, and 8 but I bogeyed #4 and #5. That is my first time to birdie #1. I nearly birdied #3 but my birdie putt through some branches and around a tree hit on top of the basket. I should have parred #4 but the par putt was very tight. I nearly parred #5 but the 35 foot putt hit the front of the basket. The birdie putt on #8 went in from about 45 feet out. So the round was up and down for me.

Greer with Bill & Carla after the Downpour

I called Bill and we decided to hit the Greer course at 5:30. Shortly after 5 a heavy downpour moved through the area and really soaked down the course. But we decided to go ahead and play a round. I was -1 on the front nine with a bogey on #1 and birdies on #4 and #8. Then came the back none. I threw 6 bogeys (11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 18) to finish at +5. But the 3 of us had a good time talking and we were out playing. Bill hurt his throwing arm a couple of weeks ago and he has started throwing… Continue

Holmes Alone

I headed to Holmes Park for a quick round. I was playing fairly well off the tee but not able to hit 20 to 30 foot putts. I missed birdie putts on #1, #2, #3, and #7. I birdied #5, #6, and #8 to finish at -3 for a 24.My putt on #5 was dead behind a tree and I had to massage it around the tree and into the chains. #6 was a short straight shot and #8 was a straight in shot from about 15 to 20 feet below the basket. That is the first time that I ever birdied #8.

Timmons with Erica and Not with Nick

Nick challenged Erica to a round of disc golf at Timmons then he backed out at the last moment. I figured that Erica would also be a no-show so I was going to throw a round and head for home. But Erica showed up so we played a round. I didn't play well or poorly and ended up with a +2 for a 56. I was -1 on the front with birdies on #1 and #7 and a bogey on #4. I started the back with bogeys on #10 and #11 then birdied #14 and took my 3rd straight double bogey on #18. Since they moved the tee… Continue

Holmes Once Alone

I ran over to Holmes for a quick round tonight. I didn't play especially well as I ended up at +3 for 30. I threw two birdies on #3 and #6, but I took a double bogey on #4. My tee shot was a FAT hard side-arm throw about 30 feet off the tee box. (FAT = First Available Tree!) I thought that I had thrown a great recovery shot to save a bogey, but when I got to the basket I was over 40 feet above the basket. I wimped out on my putt and it hyzered away from the basket then caught an edge and rolled… Continue

Timmons Alone

I went over to Timmons for a quick round today. I scored pretty poorly, but I didn't play as poorly as the 60 would indicate. Once the score went in the tank, it was time to try different discs and different throws in various places. Some worked well and others did not. I have new Star Roadrunner, Champion Valkyrie, and Elite Surge SS discs that I am trying to develop a feel for how they throw,. They got a work out once my score had tanked. I did birdie 14 and 16 but I had three water penalties… Continue

Greer with Bill and Carla

I met Bill and Carla at Greer early this afternoon for a round. I just didn't have a thong for that course. I was up 3 on the front and up four more on the back to end up with a +7 for a 61. That is very disappointing. It's very seldom that I play in the heat of the day and out in the sun, but I have played there in the sunny part of the day when it was hotter and didn't play that poorly. What can you say? Bill played only slightly better than I did and he was disgusted by his play too! But… Continue

Timmons with James

I went to Timmons for a quick round tonight to prove to myself that the +7 I threw last week was a fluke. I threw a few discs off the first teepad when an out-of-towner named James asked if he could play a round with me. He also had an 11-week-old English bulldog to help us play. I took 2 water penalties for double bogeys on 5 and 18 but birdied 2, 6, 14, 15, and 17 to end up at -1. I was happy but also disappointed because I was -3 on the 18th teepad. But overall it was a pretty good round.… Continue

Timmons with Erica and Not Nick

Nick challenged Erica to a disc golf dual with me at Timmons Park, but then Nick dropped out at the last minute due to losing a tooth. So it was just Erica and me at Timmons. I played terribly! In the first 10 holes I had 4 water penalties and ended up at +7. I only had 2 birdies and I had several bad holes. It would have been a good night for Nick to challenge us since Erica played even worse than I did. It was fairly windy, but I have played in the wind many times. I know that I was very… Continue
