Matt Kelly's Blog (10)


Officially looking for a partner. Would prefer to play Pro Masters--would consider Open. Lefty partner would be ideal -- but mostly would just like someone who's 80% or better inside the circle.

Things could be going better

I can't believe that I'm sick at worlds. It's very frustrating.

Yesterday my body was just aching and I was really tired. I shot the second worst round in my pool and have now dropped back to the last card in the D pool before the great shuffle happens tonight, where it looks like I'm E pool bound.

I do feel a little better today, and I'm hoping to put together a decent round this afternoon at Oshtemo. Tomorrow morning we're playing at Timber Ridge, definitely the most… Continue

Gearing up for Worlds!

Oddly enough, I haven't been playing as many tournaments as I would have imagined with 6 months off work. I played the Master's Cup in May and then nothing until the Frying Pan a couple weeks ago. I wasn't particularly happy with my game in either tournament -- actually, I haven't been particularly happy with any of my tournament results in 2008.

I think the main thing this year, is now that I'm playing pro masters, I've got somewhat unrealistic expectations. Instead of taking my… Continue

played a couple of tournaments

Stockton CVS, part of the Central Valley Series of tournaments which are unsanctioned, single day tournaments that are still reasonably competitive.

I missed cashing by one spot, but played the 2nd round with Roger Cansler, Jim Oates and Kevin Couch. It's nice to play in a group of this caliber.

I probably played Stockton too conservatively, but I went OB once in the first round and it kind of threw me. I ended up shooting -7 the first round, and -9 the second. 21 holes,… Continue

Memorial 2008 is in the books

Cool Beans:

I didn't hit water on hole 1 of either course!

I only missed 4 putts inside the circle at Vista.

Seeing so many friends, old and new.

Watching Markus Kallstrom CRUSH discs. (he had to take 50 foot comebackers for his second shot on holes other players were not even reaching)

Seeing Dave Feldberg and Barry Shultz battling it out over the last 6 holes of Vista on Saturday. Fantastic stuff -- be sure to check out the… Continue

Flying to Scottsdale for the Memorial tomorrow!

I've played the Memorial in past years as an amateur, and I've been pretty envious of the longer more technical layouts the pros have played. (Think narrow fairways with OB, more water to clear, two holes combined into one long hole, etc.) I'm excited and a little bit intimidated by the courses. Last year on hole 1 at the Fountain, I didn't put enough on my first shot to clear the water from the short (am) tee. The pro tee is set back another 70 feet! I think what this means is I've really to… Continue

just a bit of whining

Not to say that unemployment is not good for one's golf game, but I have to admit to feeling a bit damaged after being laid off by my company, Yahoo! earlier this week.

That being said, I feel justified in whining a little bit about some things I would not normally verbalize.

Got my Ace Club package in the mail today and while I'm pleased with the disc and the shirt, they also included a bumper sticker that reads: "Disc Golf It's in the Air!" Dude, that is one of the… Continue

Getting excited about The Memorial!

At first I was a little put off by the Thursday through Saturday format. But I guess I'm OK with it.

Starting to get excited about Waffles. Waffle House, Lo-Lo's Chicken and Waffles....



But since I've played maybe 1 round of disc golf in a month (sick in December, Thailand in January), I think I'd better… Continue
