The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Well one of my favorite events is on the horizon. I am looking forward to this event this year as I do every year. Rhett and Emerald Isle put on a great event and it is always a pleasure to play! Hopefully I play better then I did during the EI Bag Tag Challenge. With smart play I hope to be in the mix. The Advanced division is always great compitition and with a couple of the players coming off of wins, it looks to be a slug fest! Good luck to everyone.

Yea! I'm ready! Course management is your best bet, outside of being a local! Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

I know which holes I can go for birdie on and which holes to play safe. I have to hit birdie alley hard each round (9-11), and avoid going in the lake on hole 3. I think if I played the ideal round, I could end up a few down. I think both par 4's are birdieable as well, as both holes tend to play right into the hands of my tomahawk. Hole 2 off the tee and if I have a good drive on 7 a good tomahawk is a realistic play for birdie. I was 30' past after my second throw Sunday and would have carded a bird with some friendlier chains. If I can card a few birdies on these holes and avoid stupid bogeys i'll do ok. I'm not expecting to win, but I am hopeful that I can cash out pretty high.
By the way, I was as impressed as everyone else was when Steven put up the 47 on Sunday. I also know this is his first sanctioned tournament, his home course and that many people are picking him to win. That can be a lot of pressure. I still believe that if all the cards fall where I would like them to and I played my A+ game that I can win, so I won't be showing up on Saturday thinking Steven is going to destroy all of us and that we're playing for second place. That being said, he will be difficult to beat if he plays anything like he did last Sunday.

If my drive was as big as yours I would take more risk on the tee as well. However, the strength in my game is my putting. Therefore I tend to take the majority of risk in my putting game. My goal is to finally cash at the EIEIO, not really to win (of course a win would be nice!). There are a lot of holes I can reach and of course I will go for Birdies on those particular holes. All the others, I just have to play smart and stay out of OB. The most important thing, is to play within my own game and not someone elses!

The key is where you try to get the birdies. You have to make realistic risk/reward choices.

Glad to see you're doing some research! I hope you are going to apply this thinking to your own game...

For the past week, advanced hopefuls such as Roper, Gomez, etc. have said that as long as they play par, they'll have a good shot at winning. The way I see it, par will only get you last cash and the only way to win is to get some birdies. Until today. I looked back at the archives and they showed that the advanced winners from previous years have won with only a couple strokes under par. So, I have changed my views and I can only tell Advanced players to play par, stay off the greens, but also go for a couple. My prediction is that the winner will shoot a 135 for two rounds of 22 holes. Unless, someone plays down a division and shoots a 120, stunning the rest of the field *cough* Steven *cough*

For me, EI is all about course management. Something I failed at last weekend. I played a lot of risky drives, that ended up being more risk then reward. At the EIEIO, smart play is going to win! Since I am a weenie arm, I think laying up short of a couple greens and playing the safe approuch shot will be the ticket to success.

Par is good. Par would've gotten you 4th place on Sunday.
Comment by FRANCHISE on March 26, 2008 at 12:41pm
To be honest I am just going to try to shoot Par! I think two rounds of Par will put me in the money. Now of course that is sound strategy here, but in the heat of battle, sometimes you have to take some risks!
