Winter play is going pretty well

So I've been playing pretty regularly lately and will soon cut back a little because of the wet ,cold weather .

usually I start to loss distance about this time of the year but I'm actually throwing farther then i was in the summer .

The only downside is my putting has gone to hell because I've been to lazy to take the time to do it .

I'm looking forward to play some ice bowls this year ,which i always do very good in and haven't finished lower than 4th so i think I'm going to do… Continue

Yet another ace

so i hit my 4th ace of the year today at parmalee with my star aviar .
I played Ottawa first did ok but overall disappointing but not bad .
Then i drove the 10 mins down the road to pamamlee and played a round with autumn who shot a +23 which is great for her being nine .
I was doing pretty well got to 8 which i got close to a couple of times and hit dead center in the chains autumn yelled in excitement because this was the first ace she has ever seen .
It was a good day

So I went to parmalee today for the first time since it was reinstalled the course was taken out due to vandalism in 2005 or 2006 .

I haven't played there since 2005 ( i think) and i was still learning the game and I remember thinking the course was very hard but since then i have learned a lot.

First thing i noticed is most of the holes were very short ,i used my avair for every hole but i think 5 of the longer holes.

The course is very wooded with a lot of throw and… Continue

I give up on the boss

so I've been throwing two bosses as my driver for long open shots .
I really like them but the problem I've been finding with them with any kind of wind they flip even light wind .

I've been holding out to buy another xclaiber since i lost my last one but with the fall/winter wind lately I think i'm going to pick one up.
I like the boss when it's calm but so far I'm not impressed and it doesn't do anything that me destroyer doesn't do better already .

breaking in a couple of new discs

so I broke down and brought 2 new putters ,I used glow aviars for the last 4 of because i like the grip but didnt like how they broke in when they got older .

So i got two star aviars in 170-172 and so far i'm not sure if i like them ,they seem like the bounce when the hit in the basket and i noticed some bounce outs that i wouldn't normally get hopefully this changes when they get older if not i'm going to switch back .

I also got two champion bosses which i like them after a couple… Continue

played a lot this weekend

So I went to Columbus for a four day weekend trip.

I played several course most of which I have played before but had lots of fun ,because my little brother tagged along and we don't see each other much.

So we started on saturday we first played the hocking college dgc.

After taking a while to find the first tee which was hard to find ,the first two holes where in the open and quite boring and when you get to three you go into the woods and you walk and walk and walk after a 10… Continue

so I went to owatta park today, and threw a round from the shorts and beat me pb at 7 under and felt at even then I could do much better .

every shot that I didnt hit a birdie I was very close are the disc bounced off the chains not that my putting wasn't good but it seemed I had some bad luck or I was out of my putting zone so I felt pretty good.

I was there sat. and finished 1 under from the shorts and 3 under from the longs It seems that I have more trouble with the shorter… Continue

Doing Good

So went to B.G today and threw with autumn who's going to be a world champ some day and has arm that most 9 years old could only dream about .

I went out started out pretty well and after 10 I was 7 under and from there missed a lot of birdies and stayed at 7 under

but a 7 under there is by far a PB for me and autumn finished 7 over by par which was very good and she olny used her stringray and aviar .

if i keep up this improvement doing the winter I'll be a threat in the spring… Continue

The boss

So I heard of the new disc that innova is releasing on oct 6 called The Boss .

They Claim It's a faster xcailber With a speed rating of 13 making it faster and longer than both the xcailber and destroyer .

I throw my destroyers fine but never throw the xcailber that I had much because I lost it after a couple of weeks and found the champion destroyer turns like the xcailber but I'm looking foward to this discs release .

Im sure it wont be that much of a step away from my… Continue

So I've played the last couple of days doing about the same .
I'm learning how to throw my aviars better on drives and half the holes in bryan I now only use a putter or mid and rarely pull out a driver and i seem to have a lot more control now that i'm doing this .
anyways thats all for now

not playing much lately

well I haven't been playing as much as i usually do which means I haven't played in 4 days which is a stretch for me.

I have been doing my putting lately tough I played yesterday which as i said was the first time in 4 days and my arm felt tight even after warm up but I still had good distance though I hit 400 feet on the holes i always do but what was good about the round was my putting was red hot and i shot a personal best of -5 in Bryan which is only nine holes with 2 of these holes… Continue
