Ace # 25 - Enterprise League Ace Pot! 10-31

Well I've been injured.. but my elbow was feeling "okay," so I decided to risk some righty throws (I've been playing lefty since the injury) at Saturday league.

Number 10 is a short little technical shot through the trees. I pulled out my Sierra Nevada Aviar putter and threw an easy little anhyzer shot through the biggest gap. It sailed nicely down the middle gliding gently to the right as it went and BAM! It lands right in the chains!

If you look at the picture, the flight went down… Continue

Ace #24 - Disc Karma

So I roll up to League a couple of minutes late (NOT my fault), the first time I have EVER been late, and I am informed that I am going to receive a one stroke penalty to my score.

This immediately pisses me off because a) I've never been late before, b) I've waited for other people countless times and never stroked them for being late, and mostly c) this is my home course where I have labored hours and hours for the benefit of the course, and run leagues and thrown tournaments, and now… Continue

Ace #23

# 10 Anderson River Park. Threw my DGA Sparkle Shockwave right up the gut and *BAM* right in the chains! On my way to a -8.

2009 COS UOB - Shasta Series

I finally won my division at this tournament with a respectable -1 and -2 for my rounds. I was quite happy with my play, and thrilled to finally win this tourney.

Then at the awards I was shocked to find out I had won the overall title as well! That's my first ever and I was glad to win it at such a tough venue.

The competition was fierce and the course took it's toll on the players.…

NorCal Series Advanced Masters Champion!!

I got the best birthday present of all!! I won the NorCal Points Championship! It was a close, tightly contested race all year against some of the best in the state and I scraped and clawed all year long and won it. Barely. But barely counts!! After the final round at Rocklin at the NorCal Finals I was sweating the results, as Les Swift and Mark Whittingslow both made a run at the title, finishing 1rst and 2nd in the tournament to my 4th. I was the points leader going in but wasn't at all sure… Continue

Shasta Series Pro Master Champion!!

Whew....I pulled it off. After jumping out to a huge lead in the division, I bumbled and stumbled at COS and Lake Redding to let the field close in on me.

My first round on the Mount Shasta Ski Park was a disaster. I came in +7, with a horrible round, and it looked like I was out of the money. Somehow, though, I reached down and came back 9 strokes better the next round, a bogey free 2 down to squeak into the money and secure my championship. Like I said, whew...

My reward was a… Continue

Gabe Lack Memorial at Lake Redding Golf Course

Well... another successful Shasta Series event in the books. The tourney went off pretty damn well. A lot better than my game, that's for sure.

Started off with a bang! A triple on the first hole. Hit the fountain square in the main upstream, and my disc (which was probably going in :) ) popped up and splashed straight down. Accccccckkkkkkk! What a start. I then proceeded to throw in the pond *TWICE* on the next water hole (# 3) for a five. A nice little +5 start after three holes.

I… Continue

St. Patty's Tournament - Shady Oaks - Orangevale, CA

Well, I did okay I guess. Finished 5th out of 28 dudes. Had a stupid Saturday round, and could have finished as high as second, but... I DIDN'T!!

Hats off to Ray Birch. He was on his game. Killed us all. Also hats off to Mark Bohn Sr. Excellent rounds Friday and Saturday to finish in 2nd place!!

The tournament ran smooth as silk. What a pleasure! Tee times are awesome! Everyone gets to start on hole 1 and play the course in order.

All in all, I was happy. Had my… Continue
