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

Holmes with Nick

Nick, a buddy from work and I went to Holmes Park after work to play a couple of nine hole rounds. Nick has never played before so he wanted to give it a try. I didn't play very well, but we had a good time flinging discs. I was even par the first time around with a birdie on 7and a bogey on 8. The second time around I missed the mando on 3 for a double bogey. I also bogeyed 4 by missing a borderline putt, but I got in back on 6 with a line straight putt. Nick hit a couple of long putts and was… Continue

Greer with Bill & Carla and Dillon

I called Bill and met him and Carla in Greer for a round tonight. While we were teeing off Dillon, one of the kids that hangs out at the park, came running over wanting to play with us. Dillon is a kid that doesn't throw well at all, but he talks incessantly and takes forever to throw. He also pesters us while we are trying to throw. So a round with Dillon is an exercise in patience.



I was throwing a fair round (for me), but the wheels came off at the end of the round. I missed a par… Continue

Gower - Erica and Basketball

Erica and I went back to Gower tonight and went around twice. I was even par both times with a birdie on 4 and a bogey on 5 then a birdie on 3 and a bogey on 4 again. I am struggling with my tee shot on 5, but once I get it back I will get that hole. I took a large bag and we hauled two bags of trash out of the woods. It is still full of beer cans. They were playing softball on the field along 8 and that really bothers me while teeing off. I should have birdied 8, but I didn't.



After… Continue

Gower in the Rain with Erica

Erica and I met to play at Gower this evening. I threw for a while waiting for her and it started raining once she arrived. We waited a few minutes and the rain cleared up so we started off. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th holes play in heavy woods and once we were in there we could hear the rain start up again and was falling on the canopy of trees. We finished the 4th and could see that it was coming down pretty good, so we stopped at a nearby picnic shelter and waited it out. After about 5 minutes the… Continue

Greenville Middle, No, Holmes Park - Erica

Erica and I met at Greenville Middle to throw on the field, but they had the sprinklers on. So we went to Holmes Park to play a couple of rounds. I was even after the first 9 holes with a bogey on 4 and a birdie on 9. We ran into Steve and Faith Greene out for their constitutional and I gave them a "Hooty- Hoo!" We went around again and I was -2 with birdies on 2, 3, and 7 and a bogey on 8.



Erica is improving. She is starting to keep her score and not just throw. If she'll play more… Continue

Timmons - Erica, Coop, and Tyler

We went to Timmons tonight for the first time is ages. I used to play there nearly every day but since the man on the hill forced the city to modify the course and tried to close the park I have pretty much quit going there. Erica and I started off and Steve had called and said that he would be there later. We piddled around and were on hole #3 when Steve arrived with his nephew Tyler. They caught up to us and we started off on #4. I played the front at -1 and the back at +2 to end up with a 55… Continue

Solo at Holmes

I went to Holmes this evening for a quick round. Erica said that she was going to play but I rightfully doubted her. Steve also wanted to play, but with him working the graveyard it is hard for him to get out around his sleep. I can truthfully say "Been there - done that, took two pictures, don't wanna go back." So I totally sympathize with him. I only went around once for nine holes and threw a 25 for -2. I birdied 2, 5, and 6 while I bogeyed 3.



I threw a three new discs that I… Continue

Chains of Hope - Greer

I played in the Chains of Hope charity tournament in Greer today. There were only two seniors, Armand and me. There was only one woman, Danielle. So they put Danielle with Armand and me. We called it the Senior Woman's division. Armand and I threw identical scores. He beat me by two strokes in the morning and I beat him by two strokes in the afternoon. I threw a 57 and a 53. I didn't buy any mulligans for the morning round and I bought 5 for the afternoon. I used all five although one did me no… Continue

Greer with Coop Austin and Lathan

Steve and I went to Greer again this evening to play before the little tournament tomorrow. After work I went to Academy Sports to buy another Champion Valkyrie. I found what I wanted and also bought another bag. When i got home Steve called and we set a time to meet at Greer. I got there early and found my lost disc in the creek. So now I have a pair of Valkyries to use.



We played the course and I struggled through the front nine at -1. I threw 2 bogeys and three birdies. I got into… Continue

Greer - Coop

Steve wants to play in the tournament at Greer this weekend so we played a round tonight. It's been over a year since I played with Steve. I played so-so and had some bad trees to finish at +5. I also lost one of my oldest discs in the creek along 16. It had been raining so the creek was very murky and I couldn't find it. I'll have to see if I can find another one to replace it.

Back to Greer

I met Bill to play Greer before he played doubles today. Christine (Brandon's wife) showed up and played with us. After we teed off Brent (A new player) also joined in to play. I played pretty well for me. I was +2 for a 56. I bogeyed #3, birdied #4, and took a double bogey on #11. I parred everything else. I had a gimme birdie putt on #7 that I just didn't put into the chains. I also should have made my birdie putt on #16, although it was very awkward. My tee shot on #11 has to just skim by a… Continue

Greer in the Heat

I played Greer alone in the heat of the day today and I was awful. I had several putts clang the chastity belt or the top rung, but my drives were truly awful. I spent a lot of time climbing through the crud looking for discs. It was a very discouraging round. But I'll get better!

Greer

I met Bill and Carla at Greer today for a round before Greer doubles. I parred all 9 holes on the front. But my tee shot on #10 pulled hard to the left and went deep into the crud. We hunted for it for quite a while before Bill found it. He sat it down for me to play out, but by the time that I had climbed out of the crud we couldn't find it again. I did find a JLS buried back in there and eventually I found my disc again. When Bill sat it down it turned on edge and was nearly impossible to see… Continue

Richmond Hills Kicks my Rear End!

I met Bill and Carla in Travelers Rest to drive up to Asheville along with Brandon and Nathan to play Richmond Hills along with Bob today. I played a terrible round to start off. I threw a 77 total score with a pair of triple bogeys and 6 double bogeys. We immediately played another round and I improved to 69. But I was physically worn out and felt beat up by the course. After playing the rounds we went to rib shack for some excellent ribs, then drove back to TR to come on home. Even though the… Continue

Greer Again

I met Bill and Carla for a quick round at Greer tonight. I was throwing fairly well, but was just a little off. I clanged the chastity belt 5 times and the top rim once. I also was in the on 14 and 16 and in the street on 17 and took a horrible score of +9 for a 63. I'm not sure what happened to cause all of that but I enjoyed the round despite the awful score.

Greer - Back from Minnesota

I got home late last night or more properly early this morning from visiting relatives over the 4th in Minnesota. I called Bill and set up a round in Greer this evening. I was there first and threw 5 discs from the 1st tee while they were pulling in. While I was gathering my discs Bill threw his putter toward the 8th basket, then started talking to a new player and threw another disc around the trash box down toward the same basket. We got ready to play and Bill couldn't find his putter. We… Continue

Greer with Bill and Erica

I played Greer this evening. Erica said that she was coming and I called her when we were supposed to tee off and she was lost. She finally arrived and while she was taking some throws Bill and Carla showed up. We played a round there and I was +6 for a 60. I was -1 on the front and +7 on the back. I threw double bogeys on 11 and 12 with a pile of bogeys. That was disappointing. But we had a good time anyway.
