It's been almost a year and a half since my last confession. During the 3rd hole of a 36 hole tournament in October of 08', fate reared it's ugly head. Finally, after all these years of lugging around balls of steel, my back wore out. I managed to humbly finish the day out, somehow still placing in the top 10. Ever since I started playing disc golf in the summer of 03', I have been plagued with injuries. I started my disc golf career throwing my first disc with a busted tailbone. In 2005 several months were spent playing opposite-handed while my throwing arm was slingbound. Once again, this year was spent nursing a bad back and playing several rounds lefty because of a broken throwing hand. These days I have more aches and pains than excuses. Somehow I still managed to get a few practice throws in. My tomahawk putt has been deadly accurate from within 150 ft. A new flight pattern known as the flop shot allows me to attack the pin from the left side. With hawk drops and flops at my disposal, experience has proven the proper adjustments needed to completely surround the basket from a multitude of angles. Ching Velocity has given my game a much needed backhand roller. This year I have also added a much needed putter to my bag. I'll never give up on the hawk, although most putts from within 15ft. theses days are made backhand. On average, practice rounds for the month of May were in the low to mid 50's. This season I also look forward to August 23. On this date I will be officially a Master. If luck will have it, i hope to play my first tourney in September.
