The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Played Black Mouse yesterday, and I got off to a nice start. Birdied 1,
2, 3, and 4. To my credit, I didn't once entertain the possibility of
shooting -18. But I did think that double digits was a given, and it got
me out of a disc-ipline that I've worked for years to establish. I
actually kept track of my score the whole time after that, and when on
the teepad calculated how many holes out how many remaining I'd have to
birdie to shoot -10. (For the record, I shot a bogie-free -7, but that's
not the point).

This approach is quite the opposite of my overall disc golf philosophy, 'disc golf in a vacuum'. Click the preceding link if you're interested in the minute details,
but it basically means that I believe we can have the most fun - and
perform best - when we allow ourselves to be completely immersed in our
next shot. The key is to embrace the challenge of the shot purely for
the challenge of executing it perfectly. Don't get hung up with
assigning values to the shot, like, for instance "if I can this putt for
birdie I'm at -8 with three holes to go!" Instead, focus on the things
that will actually help you do what you're intending to do. Or nothing
at all. But anything is better than letting external noise distract you
from the task at hand. Click here to read the rest of this post
