The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

"He claims to dream about swimming every night. When awake he visualizes going through his butterfly stroke as he walks, and when he gets to the door he reaches for it like it's the pool wall and he is about to make a turn. 'I find myself doing some unusual things that might make me appear like I belong in a mental institution,' he says."
-Milorad Cavic, Sports Illustrated.


This quote really caught my eye, because this is the way I feel about disc golf. I'll be walking down a hall and twitching my wrist back and forth to simulate the snap. I'll be about to go through a door and pull back away from it, following through at the door to push it open, leading with the elbow. I unconsciously work my wrist and the various motions involved in a putt or an up-shot. At night I dream about rounds of golf, or at the least my dreams in some way incorporate disc golf in some surreal manner.

At a tournament a couple of months ago -in Marion, Ohio- I was laughed at by a couple of the top pro golfers in Ohio for expressing the fact that I hadn't been able to sleep the night before because I couldn't stop thinking about golf, about the course, about the lines I would take off of the tee on each hole. Maybe that is a bit ridiculous or extreme, but its the level of obsession with the game that I have. When I'm not golfing, I'm usually working on some golf related project like the Dynamic Discs website, our local club website, or writing stuff involving disc golf like a piece I did for 1000Rated.com...

One of my spanish compositions this past semester was about disc golf, my first oral exam was about disc golf. I reference it far too much, really.

Yeah, I'm weird.

Yeah, I'm in that boat, just last night I was dreaming about throwing some bizarre disc golf hole, my former wife said "the only time you seem really passionate is when you are talking about disc golf .... "

Wow.. Kinda sounds like me at the moment. I dream about disc golf all the time. I talk about it so much that it comes up in almost every conversation that I have with my girlfriend. OR at least some way it serves as a reference point somewhere along the lines. I'm sure I'm not the only one on here as well. I never talked about it in my Oral exam though.... You have me beat.
