I played the OD Tours final event this weekend at Screaming Heads in Burks Falls, Ontario. This setting is the most amazing temp course I have had the privilege playing in my short disc golf adventure. The fall colors of northern Ontario, the morning crisp and clear, a touch of frost on the ground, the sun is shining with not a hint of rain in the forecast, you couldn't have asked for a better day for flying some disc. The tournament start off by me playing my normal not so good golf, par par bogey bogey. I'm not a very good golfer, usually have a score of 7 up or better a round, but hey I get more throws than anybody else so I figure I get the most fun and value for my tournament dollar lol So as we head up the hill to four, I'm thinking to myself this is a shorter downhill hole, might be a good hole to through my new Wasp I had bought at the Can-Am Finals a couple of weeks ago from Elaine King and her better half Eric (Thanks guys see ya next event). Ive only threw it a couple of times but I liked it. I see the line I want to throw, and I let it go, damn right where I wanted it to start out....out to the left and down ( I'm a lefty backhand) its hold holding then starts to turn I'm thinking I'm gonna park this for birdie woohoo. but its still got some nice glide, I here one of my card mates yell "that's going in!" and ching! Yeeeeeah! my second ace ever, we are all yelling, high fives from everyone, damn I was excited. Going to five all we could talk about was the ace is was great. i got congrats from the guys on five waiting to tee off.
Needless to stay I double boggied the next two holes, but I didnt care after that lol. So for round two I made par on number four, and the morning round of day two, I almost aced it again, left it for a "dont hid your head picking that one up" birdie. Final round of the tournament we play for skins, I'm an am player it was merch but it was still for $10 a hole.
Coming up on number four again, our card had a carry over of two holes so it was worth 3 skins. I stepped up to the tee box on four again for the last time this 09 OD tour season, thinking about the ace I threw in the first round, and what a fantastic weekend it has been. I see that line again and just let it fly.... and ching! I nailed it again... the yelling and high fives start up again. Ive thrown 2 aces in 1 tournament! I cant believe it, walking up to five they were saying You aced it again didn't you? All I could say was "yup" while grinning from ear to ear. If you haven't seen the video on my page you can see what the screaming heads course looks like, and thanks for taking the time to read my blog :)
