Great Horned Owl at Interlocken

A Swamper's Tale (abridged)

"My" pond has plastic going into it almost daily. Lots of people tell me about a disc they hope I'll find, but I (almost) never find the disc they want back. I found a boss one evening, about neck...

I'll throw distance discs on short holes IF I know how they'll move. I don't have the arm speed to get an OLace out 350-400 feet, but at slower speeds, it moves a LOT, and I can get it to sneak...

This thread kicks butt. Give it more love!

I bet you didn't know that they had DG back in the Nefut Desert during the first world war. Sharif Ali talks a lot of smack, but he backs it up with a lot of "crush it!"

I swamp my local pond weekly when the weather is nice. Maybe not again until summer.

Valmont, in Boulder, CO. Hole 6 is a 201', lefty-friendly hyzer hidden behind a stand of untended Siberian elm trees. I was showing an experienced PDGA guy through my home course, and I was pretty...

Valmont, Hole 5 (the shorty on the hill)

ALone, cubby, RFF Wizard. Down the hill to the left of the nasty little snagging bush, floaty, glide-y and KACHING. I whooped out loud, hoping the kids in the projects on the other side of the...

I was psyched to caddy for this event, but the weather and family obligations conspired to keep me off the links for the WHOLE FLIPPIN' WEEK!

Perfect practice makes perfect!

I like the discraft putting confidence clinic video(s?) hosted by Mark Ellis. Check them out on YouTube. Rather than teach you what to do with your hands, body, eyes, etc., they focus on making...

I don't actually dream, but I'll have a full on twitchy nap-jerk if I nod off thinking about throwing. I was falling asleep watching TV recently, and almost fell out of my chair when I spazzed out...

DIY, and expect apathy, ungratefulness, and people telling you how to do it better. Listen to no one. Your reward is playing "your" course. This is level 4 behavior, I think, if you follow...
