An Exercise in Mediocrity: The Plight of the Intermediate Disc Golfer
 
For anyone interested, I wrote a small opinion article on the joys of being an intermediate disc golfer!

Feel free to let me know what you think, it's an open article so I can edit it whenever I choose.

That was fantastic. Side question about HubPages: Do you get paid per view? If so about how much?

Hey man great write up.

Can I make a suggestion? I like your informal writing style, but if you tightened up the slang I think you could share this with a larger audience.

Either way really cool read man!

I like it too. One thing I would like to see is a clearer thesis to hold the theme together. It seems like somewhere in the middle, the essay changes focus and never quite brings it all together satisfactorily for me.

But the idea, that having fun is more important than leveling up your rating as fast as you can, is right on. If Steady Ed was right, the happy weekend chucker is more of a winner at disc golf than a semi-pro who struggles for years to wring a few more ratings points out of his limited talent, but who forgets how much fun disc golf can be, even if you are bad at it. It has taken me a few years to come around to the wisdom in your article, so I'm glad to see you sharing it. :thmbup:

Really enjoyable read. Thanks for sharing!

Next you need the viewpoint of a DGer who is rated as an Intermediate, but now is on the decline. Someone who would have been 1000+ rated if there were ratings 25 years ago, but still plays even though Father Time has dictated that their rating will slowly degrade.
