The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

FACT: I have taken 2nd place in 3 of the 4 events iv'e played. WTF?
FACT: Jordan Rauch and Mike Stonestreet are cool people to golf with

Yeah 2nd! Again! Ughhhhh! I won' make this looong and boring but if you wanna read what happened....

I started off the 1st round with a 4 on #7 (yes #7) but I got my crap back together real quick with a 25 footer on #8
I fought the wind all day & watched how people who didnt grow up at BG were baffaled by the wind. I played what I know & that was firebirds, eagles & ALLOT of laying up under the basket.
Ok so back to the event,,,, I came in ater the 1st round at -5 tied with 2 other guys for 1st. Started of the 2nd round much beter, got some birdies where I needed them & was cruising all the way till 2 holes to go.
I was tied at -6 with Mike and PARKED #5 with my irebird, Ater the tap out and the 1 stroke lead I played it super safe on #6 (tunnel shot) & took the big spike hyser route I watched everyone else take. Mike took up the middle & placed his 20 feet.
I had a 35 foot jump putt & this is where I lost the event.... thinking Mike may sink his putt I went for my first putt all day, Big mistake, I blew past, & missed the return (4) then I watched in HORROR as mike missed his putt, If I would have layed under the pin I had it won.
So I come in tied & find out Mike Henry (another mike) shot a hot -9 and was a 3 way tie (that's a first for me) all at -11
CRAP! I was not ready for a playoff and was rushed into it and lost it on the first hole, Oh well, Im not too pissed, Im playing more consistent than I ever have *when I dont quit* so Yipee for me, but dangit I want a win.
