I've lost a lot of strength after playing so hard that I couldn't fight off a late-season flu. Today was a good day to get back out: no wind to speak of, no precip, and no cold. My drives are off,...

Oh, woops! Too hard at the beginning of the season. I had great putts on my first 18 at the Junkyard shootout, but came in a mere 3 under. Better than my recent record, but not the -7 I was aiming...

More night magic!

Glow Doubles round at New Johnny, my third visit to the short, but charming, re-imagining of one of Metro Denver's oldest courses. All of them at night with lit baskets and lit discs.

Stunk up Saturday with a +1 or 2 at Valmont (really? For real? How does that happen?), held even Sunday, and defended a high tag at Village greens. If the weather weren't astoundingly wonderful...

2nd ace in a month! Casual rounds paying off, this time on hole 11, Valmont. LHBH with a gradual left turn, no fade. First disc from the tee during a putter round. Opto Pure once again.

Hole three at Valmot is a short, rhbh hyzer around big trees, and between some narrow bushes. When the leaves fall, it is open and the green is very fast, leading to long skips and slides. I hit it...

Pros: Paco and Badlands are long, challenging courses. Guys who play either one a lot are usually pretty good at playing disc golf.
Cons: you live at 84th and Wadsworth. If you have a life beyond...
