The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I stopped by Holmes this morning coming back from seeing Wayne's mother and L.C. at the North Greenville Long Care Facility. I didn't realize that the wind was howling until I got out to play. I threw a sidearm on #1 that was beyond the basket. I normally would be 40 to 60 feet short of the basket there. I had a strong look at a birdie there but I was locked against a tree and had to straddle putt in a howling cross wind from about 20 feet. It hit the left side of the chains and fell out. #2 had the wind pushing to the left. I threw my stratus to anhyzer around the trees and bend it back to the basket, but the wind straightened it out and left me about 45 feet and behind a tree. So I took another par. #3 was protected from the wind and I threw a good sidearm that hooked to about 30 feet from the basket. I dropped that putt in to go down a stroke. That is the first birdie that I have thrown on #3. On #4 I was throwing straight into the teeth of the wind and uphill. I usually throw an anhyzer sidearm up the hill to get by the trees and back in front of the basket, but the wind turned it over so much that it came down as a roller and ran across the street that runs parallel to the fairway. I took a penalty and thumbered up the hill to about 30 feet short of the basket. I two putted from there for a double bogey and went up one stroke. #5 is a very short shot that I threw backhanded to try to hook around the trees to the basket. The wind pushed the disc way right but it settled down for an easy par. I threw a backhand down the hill on #6 that drifted right and long. I had to try to hook my approach around a magnolia and the wind pushed it back down the hill. I still should have made the putt, but the wind lifted it right over he top of the basket for another bogey to leave me +2. I threw a sidearm down the hill at #7 and thought that it was perfect until it landed about 30 feet beyond the basket. I two putted back to stay at +2. I tried to threw a side arm through the double mando on #8 but hit the right mando and flopped down in front of the left mando. I had no throw toward the basket or even the fairway, but I thew an anhyzer sidearm and it flew way out and came right back to the basket. It left a 15 foot putt to save par and stay at +2. On #9 I threw sidearmed into the wind and it had good distance but was about 80 left of the fairway. I threw a backhand back to the basket and as it dropped down the wind popped it back up and dropped it about 20 feet beyond the basket. My putt to save par clanged off the front rim and I took a final bogey to go up three strokes.
