The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I am pretty much your average disc golfer. I am 45, 6'2", 238lbs, and I played baseball growing up on into college as a pitcher. I stayed active into my mid 30's, but my job put me at a desk and having kids stopped my athletic activities. I also tore my left ACL and have yet to have it fixed. 


I picked up disc golf about 18 months ago and it just clicked with me. I have played close to 500 rounds in that time and I've lost 52 pounds. I feel great, my left knee is pain free, and I have reached the MA1 (Advanced) level in tourney play. My local player rating is listed at 942, and I have had a handful of 1000+ rated rounds lately. I have yet to join the PDGA, I haven't had the time for travel to tourneys for myself, as my daughter plays in FJ4's and I have been caddying for her. 


I love reviewing discs and trying to help others gain knowledge in this sport we love so much. As I get new equipment and or find new uses for my existing stuff, I will post it for whoever cares to see and discuss.

I guess I should share a little about my throwing and the discs I use and prefer.


I am backhand dominant, but have a decent forehand as well.

I use a modified push/spin put similar to Paul McBeth and several other pros.

I drive my putters out to about 260', and I'm surgical with them from 150' and in.

I love my mids and drive with them whenever I can. Ditances range from 200-325' depending on line, ceiling, and disc. (Maybe farther with my Warship)

My fairway drivers get the bulk of my drives and are useful out to 350'+ depending on stability.

My drivers are useful on the course out to about 425' and then I lose acuuracy. I haven't tried lately to see how far I can drive, I just know that I'm hitting most of my lines accurately and I feel in control on the course.


Posting distances feels odd, I don't care to do it, but for reference, there it is. For the most part, "Cut the macho sh*t, we're just throwing frisbees in a park".
