I Aced 15 minutes ago!!!!

THe feeling of an Ace. My god. It adrenalizes the game again.



It is a very special one because it happens to be on the course that I just installed on the campus where I teach High School English, Scotts Valley High School in Santa Cruz, CA. Hole #2. The hardest hole. Blind shot. With the President of the club there, Charles, and the young talent, Clayton. Charles just couldn't believe it. He had never seen an ace. Clayton saw his brother do it once, but he was super… Continue

Insane

It wasn't the lowest score ever. It was just the series of events as I connected and reconnected with my true guiding force, some force outide of myself that when you stand on the tee, your body knows exactly what it's doing and the mind gets out of the way. Routine, yes. Good habits, etc. But, there's the unexplicable. And of course, that means I can't explain it.



So, it's hole #12 at DeLaveaga and I'm sitting 1 over. I need birdies and hole 12 is just that. Thumber thuds by the… Continue

First Real Disc Golf Win

This last weekend I won the A-Tier Amateur Steady Ed Masters Cup in my town of residence, Santa Cruz, CA. I have won prestigious titles before in the team sport of soccer, but because of the inidividual nature of disc golf, this achievement was especially meaningful. I think I can safely say that I played some of the best consecutive golf rounds ever. The quality of play was mainly the result of this new sense of stillness and quietness that I found on the course. Much of this feeling was… Continue

The Social Aspect

I used to think that I would play better when I played alone. Less distractions, more focus. But, I realized that without playing partners, the game is really a completely different one. So the better score would really be a score of a different game. I mean, how many tournaments group players one per hole? This isn't to say that playing alone doesn't have its place. I think it's a perfect opportunity to practice shots, discs, take 2-3 putts, etc. But when playing alone, I have decided that… Continue

Disc Golf and Life

The more I play this game, the more I learn.



There was an old slogan that was used by Surfer magazine in the 80's: "only a surfer knows the feeling". Well, only a disc golfer really knows what I mean when I say that I learn deep lessons every time I play the game of disc golf. What do I learn about? Well, that depends on the day and the round, but just about everything that I learn can be applied directly to life. Yes, I'll say it -- disc golf is a religion.



I'll start… Continue
