View Full Version : What was your worst round?
Just curious what everyone's worst round might be.. I think mine would have to be today. I was at Baker Farm in Chili and kicking ass up until #9 at which point I lost my Pro Wraith. So I hunted around for a while and then gave up on it and finished the hole.
#9 plays by the parking lot so I pick up a brand new replacement Wraith and move on to #10.
#10, I threw my first disc and it was fine. Then I thought I'd throw another just for fun. Poor release, through a tree and into some thick rough. Another disc lost (Cobra for those wondering).
So #11 rolls around and I use my Wraith for my second shot (this hole is 900+ft). It goes right, hits a tree on the border of a large weeded field and looks like it dropped straight down so I wasn't too concerned. When I made it to the tree my disc was nowhere to be found. This time I searched for a good 30 minutes but no dice.
I decided it might be best to pack it in at that point as things obviously were not going my way this day. So 3 holes and 3 discs in a row lost.. never have I had so many poor shots in succession.
On the plus side, some online disc retailer will be receiving another order in the near future :)

Search #34583 on PDGA.org and you can see 3 of my worst rounds...

Sorry to hear about the tough round.
Mine was Fri.
I was on par for a personal best (8 over par as opposed to my normal 10 or 11 over par. Sorry, only been at this for 3 months.) When on the last hole I drove my 169 gram Star TL perfectly between two pines 40 feet from the hole. Great chance for a birdie. There was a group ahead of us and one kid grabbed my TL and took off with it.
A disc lost from poor play has not nearly the sting as watching the only driver you throw half way decent being lifted.
Wow.. that is outrageous! What a scumbag! I would have been livid.

I would say that my worst round of my short history so far is at Quaker's Challenge... lost two discs in two holes near the end of my round. Can't say I shot very well either... it's recorded in the scorebook for those that are curious...

Mine was yesterday at at Mini tournament. I shot a 64. I had never played that bad. I think it was lack of sleep and I was nervous, and trying to hard. Also, after the tournament, I went to the practice field for a few hours, took my 38 discs with me, and threw everything for a while. I realized that the 14 discs I had in my bag needed to be rearranged, and I took some out, and put some back in. I discovered that I didn't have a great disc set up, so I made some changes and I think I have a good combination now. Next time will be better.

my worst was only on a 9 hole course.
there is a small creek that runs through most of the course and recently it had rained, a lot.
well on hole 2 i throw my brothers brand new champion orc in the water. and look for it for 20 minutes and can't find it.
after the small defeat i move on. on hole 7 i throw my tee rex in around the same spot and i look for that one for another 20 minutes.
after these two loses i jump out and am about to put on my shoes when a bee stings my foot! i ended up leaving then.

Once I was playing hole 6 at Central Park. My drive went in the creek. I made my way down to the creek and waded in to get it. While I was in the water my bag rolled down the hill and fell into the creek too..

I feel your pain timg!
I've lost more wraiths than all other kinds of discs combined, and I've always lost them to the right. I eventually got tired of replacing them and switched to a surge, which has been working fantastic for me and I've yet to lose or even have a close call with.

I hate just thinking about it, but...
I was on the first tee at the course in Sussex, WI. It overlooks a nice size pond in the spring and it was particulary large this spring due to all of the snow we had gotten previously. So, well to make a long story short...my first toss..favorite disc right into to middle of the nasty water. I shake it off quickly and reach back into my bag and grab my second favorite disc.( old trusty. Right?) Second toss, wind comes up...takes the disc right off course and right into the pond again.
I no longer play that hole with my favorites...

TODAY! i played horrible not one decent tee shot in 9 holes and i lost a brand new disc in the bamboo forest of the 6th hole. new rule: no thickets of bamboo on disc golf courses they just eat discs alive. so now i have to wake up extra early to go replace the disc before a 1 pm tournament.

How about a worst hole story. Earlier this year playing in the 2008 Washington Series Tournament at Riverside Parki n Sumner, Washington, a player in our foursome playing in the senior something division (Our motto "we're not only old but we're not very good") experienced the worse single hole I've ever witnessed.
# 7 is a big anhyser shot around some trees. The left side is rough, then a creek/ditch with even deeper, darker rough on that side of the creek. So this player throws a hyser over the creek way out of bounds. As he's crossing the creek/ditch on a log, he falls in up to mid-thigh on his right leg. We all proceed to search the allotted time for his disc. No luck so he loses his disc and takes a penalty stroke. As he's crossing the creek/ditch to get back on the course, he falls in again. This time up to his waist on his left leg. From the OB point he pitches his 3rd shot up to about 8 feet from the basket. And then putting for a bogey 4, he misses the almost gimmee and finally takes a double bogey 5.
Falls in creek/ditch
Takes penalty stroke
Falls in creek/ditch 2nd time
Misses easy putt for double bogey

Played in a tournament last year, and hit just about every OB that was out there. Finished with a 87 I think.:(

i forgot about it

One year at the Ohio State Champs I started the 3rd round on hole #3. I was in 10th place after 2 rounds and beating the then current US Open Champ, who was on my card. I had 6 bogeys in a row that round. :doh:
06-18-2010, 09:13 PM
It was an 822 rated round at Ottumwa. Lost my TL in the drink. Took a (9). The next round I duced the hole.
06-18-2010, 09:36 PM
i shot over 90 once. the next round was a 68.
Losing Wraiths... a common theme. The Woodshed and Whippin' Post got me last Fall. I was generally getting beat up by the courses...but that's not unusual.
#13 of the Woodshed is my favorite hole there. About 400' down into a valley an another 100' or so back up the other side. Well, when you turn your drive over, 300' bown hill away, but also 100-200' right, in the shule at the Woodshed none the less, you can kiss that sweet 150g, Champion JK Valkyrie goodbye.
Then on the 800+' Whippin' Post #6, I was trying to flex my 175g, Champion Wraith as far as I could. I was still fuming from the lost Valk and general crappy play. So I ripped the Wraith, but hardly got any Anhyzer on it and it hyzered probably 100' left into the thick stuff again. Searched for both discs for 30 minutes or more with no luck.
When it takes an hour to get there, I really hated wasting the hour searching. I think that I quit after that hole and I never cut rounds short. I was just sick to my stomach. :sick:

Just curious what everyone's worst round might be..)
One of the rounds after my back injury. I was feeling pretty good and was putting what I had out there. Everything was feeling right but the discs were going everywhere. Mostly short and wide. After that round I felt like quitting. That was spring `09. It's frustrating knowing what you can do and not being able to execute it. I learned a lot last year.

There is no such thing as a bad round of disc golf.

I was playing a round at the Central Michigan University course in either late February or early March. The ice on the pond was just starting to melt. On hole 1 I threw my Aerobie Epic about 20 feet onto the half frozen pond.
In the group of friends I was with was one guy who is an EMT and one who is a lifeguard, so I figured it would be safe to go get my disc. I was thinking that after I got back on shore I would want dry clothes so I took off everything except my boxer briefs.
The ice was very thin and I didn't think I should walk on it so I laid on my stomach and slid slowly to my disc. I got it and threw it back to the shore and crawled back. I later found out that 2 of my friends had gotten video of the incident on their phones so they could later show everyone I know video of me, half naked, slowly sliding on paper thin ice to get a basically worthless disc.
My stomach, legs and arms were very red and felt like they were burning (I also had some major shrinkage going on if you know what I mean) but I put my clothes on and finished the round. I think I shot like a +10. It was terrible.

So where is the youtube link?

+12 at Taylor Lake. The day before I shot -1. I just couldn't stop bogeying the 1st 4 holes, then I was pushing to get the stokes back and made worse and worse decisions.....
06-20-2010, 01:21 PM
I'm pretty sure Timg saw my worst game of DG on Friday. I shouldn't try playing 3 courses with no rest between the 2nd and 3rd. And I should have known to bring some extra clothes. I was just entirely sweat soaked by the time round 3 came around and I couldn't tell at the time buy my power was fading fast.
I threw my brand new (only thrown 2 times) DD and I didn't have the power to push it out like I did earlier in the day, it faded into the thick crap at Parma....Timg and Sloppydisc and myself looked for a good long while before I said screw it. We play the rest of the hole which went somewhat okay, I took a 6 after taking the stroke for losing the disc...which a 5 on that hole isn't really disastrous...6 and 7 without losing a disc are common.
We move on to the next hole that used to have a 50' tree lined tunnel...now they moved the tee back and it's like a 100' tree lined tunnel. This hole just isn't fun to me anymore, it feels really impossible to get out of the tree tunnel and even if you do you have to go another 300' then suddenly turn right behind a tree covered hill to the basket.
Any way it took me 4 terrible throws out to the open, then I went too far right too early. But I was sooo far right that I just tossed through a hole in the wooded hill. I hear it make it through and hit.
We spend another 25 minutes...but we find this one. The lady friend gets out of class and calls me and I'm just ready to give up. But we find the disc and I decide the next 3 holes play on the way to the car so I'll give them a go...nothing as disastrous as the previous two holes...but it wasn't convincing me that staying would be more fun that cooling off and eating seafood. So that's what I did.
Sorry I had to cut my first round with our fearless leader off like that...but I think it was better for my psyche.

How about worst day? This day was a contender. See "other notes" on this review: exasperating day (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/profile.php?mode=upd_rev&rev_id=17790&sort=rdate&order=DESC)

Bad link Paul, what course is that on?
06-20-2010, 02:55 PM
Worst was the first.

let's try this (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/reviews.php?id=2546&mode=rev)
and this.... (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/reviews.php?id=2751&mode=rev)
There are a ton of days like this over the course of the years; for one reason or another. Some days are lesser fun "walks in the park" than others....:) This one was perhaps the most awful courses/experiences ever played in one day though.....
