Hey Mark,

I tried to send you an e-mail, but it bounced back. Can you please let me know you current e-mail? I hope this note finds you well.

Take care,

I appreciate the offer of a round, and would love to take you up on it, but I feel the need to give you the opportunity to withdraw it, given that I usually shoot in the mid-to-high 60's over 18 from the am tees at Hudson Mills. If you think that you can still have fun while I look for the occasional (or frequent) errant tee shot, I'd love to play ;)

Mark -
I've seen your clinics on YouTube. Very useful for someone restarting after a Disc absence.

I saw on your profile on Discraft that you live in Brighton and are a practicing attorney. I am so disappointed. I thought I was the only attorney practicing in Brighton that played disc golf! Although since you practice in Livonia, maybe I keep the distinction, if it exists ...

I just discovered your clinics on youtube, and they are very helpful for the begining player like me. I've already noticed an improvement in just a few rounds. Thanks

cool. so what would they be worth? Not that I am thinking about selling them. I think I got them from Alan Beaver. He still has some jewels on his atic...
Yeah it is nice when you are connected with Discraft...you probably got a whole bunch of stuff I don't have. But...then again....me too. One time I wanted to go back home with atleast 100 mini's. I did that. Then I wanted to go back with atleast 100 dg discs....I did that too. lol and the addiction got it's form.....aaarggggh

Hey Mark, is a micro mini a very small mini?
I found 2 in my collection; 1 has a welcome to charlotte 1986 world champion stamp on it+ the state with a disc flying towards a basket.
The other one has Jim Kenner on it with a big head and small body running after a disc.It also says discraft Products, box 275 westland,michican and a phone number (313) 421-4322
I got a feeling that they both are rare....cuz' I have never seen one!

hey mark i'm curious on how i can look up the results for local tournaments. i tried searching the pdga website and couldn't figure it out.

Hey Mark are you playing in the CCR Open this weekend? My first tournament ever. Hoping to see you there, have seen many many of your instructional videos and they have helped my game a hell of a lot. I went from only being a forehand player averaging around 275-315 and now i'm capable of throwing backhand anywhere from 315-385. Bascly just wanted to say thanks haha have a good one man.

Hi MarK

I've the chance to be product engineer for heavy stitching products (bags, kites, windsurf sails,...) and those components are easy for me to get.
The most easy way to get those things for others is to recycle from an old bag .

SR buckle means "side release buckle" : is is really easy to attach and disassemble the umbrella from the bag.

Maybee next Discraft bags will be equipped with this ?
for that I recomend a velcro loop vor the umbrella attaching point : can be adapted for all umbrellas.

Thanks and have nice flights.
you'll be welcome in France if you come.

Hey man! saw the you tube video on long distance driving? I think it was. cool stuff.

I am guessing you have at least 2 for me and 2 for you? ;) Are they gonna be 1 trillion a piece or is this going to be AGGRESSIVE negotiation?
At 9:26pm on April 28, 2009, Eirik said…
That IS good information, but the real details missing are whether or not I am going to get a couple?

To tracker or not to tracker?
At 1:35am on April 28, 2009, Eirik said…
Just for the sake of having something interesting to read on my comment wall could you possibly enlighten me as to how a tracker works for you in your desired qualities for the disc. Also, is it a similar function for you as the reaper, or less stable?

One more thing: when I play solo (AKA, "when I play with myself" lol), I play "worse" shot (as long as it's not crowded). That forces focus and I definitely have improved my consistency since then. I shoot 4-9 strokes worse usually but when I am playing single shot again, it's comparatively easy.

I'm still not great -- current rating 873 -- but I find that kind of practice to highlight frustrations and focus. It's one thing to shank the first of the two shots, but if you park it you REALLY want to duplicate it and that's where I've found the most help (and frustration).

Have you ever played this format:

4 players, best shot, rotating doubles

Assume a simple 9 hole round:

Plyr1: 2, 3, 3, 4, 3, 3, 2, 3, 2 - 2D
Plyr2: 2, 3, 3, 3, 2, 3, 3, 3, 2 - 3D
Plyr3: 3, 3, 3, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2 - 3D
Plyr4: 3, 3, 3, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 2 - E

Holes 1-3 P1 & 2 team up against 3 & 4
Holes 4-6 1 & 4 vs 2 & 3
Holes 7-9 1 & 3 vs 2 & 4

Everybody is partners with one of other members at some point, but you keep your own individual score. Players 2 & 3 tie for the win, though they were partners for only 3 holes.

This is a fun format because everyone gets to play a round with each other player and really the best player will probably win because he's going to carry the weaker partners and thrive with the stronger partners. For 18 holes, you switch after 6 & 12 instead.

The only major flaw I'm come up with so far is that one time I was down one stroke to the leader at 12 and we teamed up, so it was pretty much a given he was going to win (in this case we were the stronger two players and ended up getting 5 strokes on the other two in just 6 holes). This won't happen every game, though, and in fact leaves open the chance that the weakest player might be putting from 25 feet for his partner to win it all. I think that kind of thing would be fun.
