The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Since I couldn't play in it, I decided to stop by the VPO this weekend in Arlington,TX. I heard Avery Jenkins would be there and knew the names of some other great players that would be there so I figured it would be a good chance to be a spectator for a change, and maybe see a friend or two.

I found a spot to watch a few holes form a good vantage point and sat down to watch. card after card came by and I saw some great throws as well as some not so good ones,haha. What slowly sank in is the feeling that I should have been out there playing and it got quite depressing.

I mean some of these guys are just amazing to watch. and it made me think about the problems with my own game more than anything.

you know.. you watch a throw and think.." I made that same shot last week", or something, but them my mind follows as to why they are great players and I cant even win a local mini. for me I'm pretty sure it's consistency and putting.
and then I think it's mostly mental and then I just go off on all sorts of tangents and before I know it I want to go play golf! which isn't a bad thing.

I guess I need to keep playing Minis and see what happens. and maybe next year I'll be in a better position financially to play some more tournaments.

oh yeah, I also felt bad because some guy let a beer can fall out of his bag , and then he just walked off and I had to pick it up after another group came by and in my mind I thought they were thinking " oh look, some drunk spectator, at least he's picking up his can "

that and it still seems like I am an outsider to my locals. I see the same people all the time and no one seems to talk to me. maybe I need to be more vocal? heck, I joined my local club and twice gave them my info and never received a phone call or email. do I have bad breath? haha :)

anyways, I don't think I'll just be a "spectator" anymore, if I cant play I'm not gonna show up and watch.

I hope McCabe wins it. go DD !!!

At the next club mini, volunteer to help pass cards out or to help record the scores. That will get your face in front of somebody who is actually doing something!
