The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I was at Auburn Regional Park (Chana high school) last Sunday with my fiance and 3 other friends. I had been playing crappy ... I hadn't had a single par all day ... nothing but bogeys and double bogeys but I keps playing 'cause well duh I love the sport and how am I gonna get better? Well we were on hole 11 which is a long down hill drive with 2 small hills to the left and the right. I have never really done well on this hole, it's so long and I rarely drive that far. It's usually a par-double bogey hole. Well this time I threw my just repaired 175 Sidewinder. I say "repaired" because a month ago I smacked the hell out of a tree at that course on hole 4 and it got like a dent in it so I didn't throw it for a while. Well a few days before last Sunday I popped it in the oven for what seemed like a long time and the dent came out! Ok so back to hole 11 ... I threw it and it went further right than I planned but it went pretty damn far and it rolled about 30 feet and sat about 40 feet away from the basket. Well I got to my shot and got out my beaten Blowfly. My fiance bought this along with 20 other old discs and this Blowfly looked like it had been left in the sun for a while so it now has all these little warps in it, kinda like ripples.
In case you don't know, the Blowfly is a soft rubber disc and VERY floppy but this one is still bad ass and I get some nice mid-range shots with it - if I throw it right. Well I got it out on my second shot on hole 11 - about a 40-45 foot putt. Well I threw it so it would go right and hook hard left and holy crap it went perfectly and hit the chains perfectly and stuck. I couldn't believe it, I had never seen anything like that let alone I had never DONE anything like that myself. Every time I play disc with my fiance his friends usually come along and since they're so much better than me, I kind of get treated like I'm not part of the game and when it's my turn to drive, to me, it's like "whatever, let her throw" and they're all competing and I'm not 'cause I'm always in last place. I think it's bull 'cause unlike everyone else's girl, I actually go out and really try. All other girls I see are someone's girlfriend and playing along 'cause their boyfriend wants them to and they do NOT try at all. They get up to the tee and are just "blah" when they throw.
Well that's not me, I really do enjoy this game and I really try and I really have been improving. Well when I sunk that shot, all the other guys were speachless. My fiance was just like "that was f-ing sick!" and another guy was like "what!" right when I sunk it and then not one of them could think of a thing to say and just had these hilarious looks on their faces. I had a look of disbelief on my face as well, but when nobody was saying anything and all staring at me, all I could think was "in your face jerks! Treat me like I'm not part of the game? I'll get a birdie and you'll all bogey" and sure enough, every one of them bogeyed and I stole the next tee! I didn't do so great after that, but the entire rest of the day I couldn't get it out of my head. I couldn't believe it! I love that Blowfly, I want to get a new one that doesn't have all those ripples and see how it flies ...

You Go Girl,
That is so cool. Keep up the practice and keep'em slinging and soon the guys will be trying to catch up to you. Also remember what you did on that drive as far as your arm position and your release. This will help to give you more distance in the future by trying to duplicate your style again. Again, CONGRATS!

My GF had her first birdie a few weeks ago and she was so excited. It was not a sick birdie like yours but, she was still stoked. Gotta love those long approaches/putts for birdie. Congratulations...

I also posted on your blog about women in DG...check it out...

Nice shot! It isn't easy to shut up a group of guys. Imagine how it will feel when you beat them in a round.

The ripples in the flight plate may not affect the disc much, especially for putts.
