The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Thanks to all who have congratulations for me. I appreciate it. The last round 53 was without a doubt the best round of golf I have ever played on any course. I woke up on Sunday angry because I knew the very best I could do on the Toboggan was 55, and I knew that was not going to be good enough to catch up. I was very happy, even more surprised, to prove myself wrong.

I am also very glad that I decided to put my player pack Z-Force in the bag for my 2nd and 3rd rounds. This disc helped me execute crucial, clutch 400'+ shots that I needed to play the best round of my life. On Sunday I had 5 birdies throwing the Z-Force, where any other disc would not have made it inside the circle. It was especially helpful on the uphill 755' #17 on Sunday, throwing the Z-Force on both drives, landing inside the circle (!!!!!) and snagging the birdie 3, en route to the hot round by 3 strokes! Only 2 other players in the top 30 took a 3 on 17 on Sunday, and I would bet that I am THE smallest player in the top 30.
I am 5'5", 155 or so and I can bomb this thing over 420' or more, on a HYZER!!! I am super pumped to get to a field and try to start turning it over for some MAX DISTANCE. I am guessing that now I will be able to park the 485' #4 at HM Original at the DGLO this weekend, but I was too tired to practice at all yesterday. This disc is huge and much less nose-angle sensitive than ALL the other extra-wide-rimmed drivers I have tried.
If you can't find one from the Am Nats player packs, I saw some sparkly Z-Forces that will be available as Player's Cup fund raisers. This disc is HUGE and I would not have won without the Z-Force in my bag. I am definitely going to be in the field this summer grooving my Z-Force in preparation for some more clutch 400'+ shots at Rock Hill!!!!!
Thanks again for all the congratulations. Also thanks to my caddy Joe Anttila, thanks to Nick Blouin and Jared Frostdiggity for pushing me during the last round, and thanks to Discraft for giving me the disc that I needed to hit those clutch 400'+ shots.
Do yourself a favor, get a Z-Force as soon as you can.

Maybe you misread Jared..... :)
I know you guys tied but shi Nick was on FIRE before 15. I didn't look at his stats but I'm pretty sure that would have been the round of his life too. You know I got love for the Frosty. You put together a great round. You got that title next year, keep it in MICHIGAN!!!!
I didn't mean to leave you out, but having never met Nick before I was really impressed with his class and I had to say something. Playin DGLO?

Well I don't think anyone wants a playoff to end with an opponent making a mistake like that, but hmm... Before Mark shot, I was feeling very relieved that I made par from the bush on #17. He teed off and hit the tree. I saw where his disc fell and was fairly confident that he would not have a run up from his lie, which meant he had almost no chance at par. I stepped up to the tee next and my caddy (Joe Anttila) stopped me from throwing. He told me "Be patient", which was great advice. I walked back to my bag for some water, thanked him and just tried to concentrate on throwing a nice easy shot that would give me a look at a layup.

Congrats Daemon, nice round I will be picking up a Z force soon, I am really getting "on" the esp force.

HOT! HOT! HOT! Would have been nice to be up there watching a round like that. Huge CONGRATS on taking home the championship. I don't think I'll be making it to Worlds this year but I do plan to make the trip down to USDGC. Perhaps I'll see you down there.

So when you get your Discraft sponsorship would you mind putting me on a list to send a couple of Z-Forces? ;)

Peter, I generally like to throw Z more than ESP with any disc. The flight pattern may be similar to the ESP, but I find that the Z is faster with a very similar amount of glide. I would call the Force mold overstable in all plastics, but moderately so. I can turn over a ESP Surge more easily than a Force, if that gives you a good comparison.
Also, I had just gained some confidence with the Z-Force on Sunday, so I have thrown less than 15 drives with it. I will post up after some field work this week.
