The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

More money, more problems? Not when you're damn near broke it ain't! So far I'm two tournaments into 2008, and 19 days in... I'm up to $210 in unsanctioned tournament earnings. It isn't much, but its a start. I took second today at the Columbus Ice Bowl, at the Hambrick Memorial Course. I actually tied for first with Geoff Bennett and lost in a sudden death tiebreaker. He got $100, I got $60. Sucks that I lost it, I was actually in with a strong lead after one round, he had the hot round by, I think, five strokes the second round and caught me.

But that's Bennett, there's a reason he's a 1012 rated player, right? And I'm just a 947 rated player. Hopefully that's changing soon. I've just got to keep tearing up these unsanctioned tournaments to keep some semblance of a cash flow going, or my family is going to decide that I need one of them job things that all the kids are talking about. I don't want one of those, so yep... disc golf or bust.

Next week is a sanctioned tournament, the Ottawa Ice Bowl in Toledo. Last tournament there I was sitting at the back end of cash in Open, playing trophy only, and fell off second round. That was my first tournament in Open. If I can play 990 rated golf I'll be more than happy, I should be able to. Realistically, the only thing keeping me from that on a round-by-round basis is my own mind.

Anyway, its been a long day. Dubs tomorrow at the Hambrick Memorial course I think and then the long drive back up to Toledo. Our car swept the top three in cash: Bennett, Myself, Ziggy. Good times. Doubles, home, and then a week of working out, field work, and then another tournament! Yay disc golf!
