The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I played two rounds today after work and before it got dark! It only took about 45 minutes but I'm a bit out of shape. Also it was windy and the more strokes you take, the higher your time usually. I played at Expo Park in Aurora (Near Denver) and just ran with a beat in Roc, an X-Buzz and a Wizard. Expo is a short course (I'm guessing -9 = 1000 rated round) around a couple of lakes and you do have to be careful to keep the plastic off the ice. The winds were constantly 15-20 mph with higher gusts. It was great to work on the wind game with mids and the putter. It's amazing how much control you can have with a Wizard (or other stable putter) even in windy conditions from 150' in. I was happy with most of my shots but had a few skips OB that hurt my score as I got tired. First round was 3+ and round 2 was 2+ but I had 4 OBs on the last 6 holes. Just poor management of being tired. It's mental as much as anything.

I highly recommend speed golf to anyone who wants to run but dislikes it. I find it is much more managable while throwing discs. Also, it's great to get into a rhythm and just throw and putt. Less thinking can often lead to great scores and for a while, my best scores on my old home course were while running. Denver has more people to play through but at least during these wintery, windy afternoons, I just see a couple of groups. Go get your running shoes a putter, a mid and a driver and have some fun!

I agree Shel. It's very nce to just play by yourself once in a while and speed golf is a good way to do that. i love being able to think, get the stresses of life out and I find i sleep better too. Try jogging too.

Well, I've done some speed golf, but I don't think I actually ran, just a very brisk walk. Most of the time I do this alone, but every now and then I find someone who can keep up with my long legs, like my best friend Brian-who's about 6'4" or taller... anyway,,whatever it takes right, I actually can think alot of things through when I do it alone, kinda peaceful in it's own way...
