The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Playing in Open for the first time this past year kinda re-ignited my love for competitive play...even if I wasn't exactly competitive with all the players in my division each time :) Getting to play alongside some great golfers like Matt Orum, JD Ramirez, Chris Smith, Devan Owens, and many others this year showed me that I have a long way to go before I can make a name for myself in this sport...but I'm up for the challenge!

In 2009, I want to focus on playing more large sanctioned events and less on "just for the hell of it" type of events. I spent the last hour of work the other day (sorry co-workers) compiling a list of all the events I'd *like* to play...I know that realistically I won't get to play all of them, but here's my 2009 wish list so far:

Poison Ivy Open (C Tier) – Early January
Dynamic Discs Winter Warm-up (B Tier) – January 31, 2009

Big Show @ Cedar Hill (B Tier) – Early February
The 9th Z Boaz Open (A Tier) – Mid February

Duncan Lake Hillclimber Open (C/B Tier) – Late March

14th Texas State Championships (A Tier) – April 4-5, 2009
10th Annual Pecan Park Open (B Tier) – Mid April
Green Country Open (NT event) – April 25-26, 2009

Greater Tulsa Open (A Tier) – Mid May
19th Annual Capital of Texas Open (B Tier) – Mid May

2nd Titledisc.com Open (C Tier) – Early June
3rd Annual Play It Again Sports Open (B Tier) – Late June

PDGA Pro World Championships (Major event) – July 27–Aug 1, 2009
Sports City Fahrenheit Fling (C Tier) – Mid July

Dynamic Discs CedarVille Open (B Tier) – Early August
14th Hell on the Border (B Tier) – Mid August
Southern National Pro Championship (C Tier) – Late August

Mr. Jim’s Carrollton Open (B Tier) – Mid September
Dynamic Discs Lewisville Open (B Tier) – Late September

Dunn Memorial Java Classic (C Tier) – Mid October
Louisiana State Championships (C Tier) – Mid October
The Mesquite Open (C Tier) – Late October
Veteran’s Park Open (A tier) – Oct 31-Nov 1, 2009

Heart of Texas Tour Final (A Tier) – Early/Mid November
Alex Clark Memorial (C Tier) – Early/Mid November

Piney Woods Pro-Am VI (B tier) – Early December

It'll be interesting to see how many of these I actually get to play in. For the past 2 years I've had to pass up on a lot of good events becuase of high gas prices and not ever being able to find a travel partner. So, uh...*cough cough*...any companies out there looking to sponsor a new Open player with a decent rating (973) and a heart of gold? Hopefully that wasn't too over the top :)
