The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Just got back from the tournament late this afternoon.

The four courses were simply great. Des Moines should be proud of them. They test accuracy and distance pretty evenly. My type of courses. It was interesting talking to some local rec players about the courses. They said they didn't know what they had until they went to a different town and now appreciate their courses much more.

Meeting new people and old friends is still one of the fun things of disc golf.

My play was less than stellar. The lack of practice really showed through. I mean practice in the sense of going to an open field and throwing. My releases were off quite a bit on drives and my knowledge of the flight of my discs was not there either. I figured this would happen going into it but I figured I would give it a try any way.

The Gateway Assassin impressed me. I had not played a lot with it before the tournament. I didn't think it would fly as far as it really did. I really enjoyed it for straight shots and anhyzer flex shots.

The mosquitoes are simply horrid at my house this year, even in daylight. With that and Grant now the major concern in my life, I will cut back on my disc golf for a bit. I still plan on doing leagues. I have had a couple ideas for bags rolling around in my head for awhile. It will be easier working on them with Grant than practicing would be. You only get one chance to raise a child.

This was one of the best tourneys i have been to... the courses were amazing... I would not be suprised if this tourney gets over 400 people next year.... Watching the top pros show off after the tourney was great... Avery threw a 360 that had to go over 650 feet... I have never seen a disc go that far he is the man...
