Doubles on Tuesday and PDGAs on the weekend. I'll also get in about 50 putts every other day - 25 feet, from my kitchen to my bedroom through my bedroom door.

I'm pretty much the most dedicated...

I give zero flips about having two 9-hole courses to play. That doesn't matter at all.
I do care, however, about having to walk too far to get to my starting hole in a shotgun start. That's more of...

950 -> 957 (mostly due to dropping bad tournaments last year)

But once again, every preliminary-to-official round rating went down
New rounds since last update

For being a short course extremely close to the center of the city, Timmons is as good as you'll find. Unfortunately, we had a nice flood last week (2-3" in an hour) that washed out the bridges on...

My thoughts on holding a putter/mid with a power grip is that you have less control over the angle of the flight plate.
When I hold a putter with a power grip and push down on the flight plate, the...

I like the idea of the graphics, but I think your release points are way too late. The disc will leave the hand on a line tangent to the curve (more or less, depending on finger action). In your...

The magic of the trebuchet comes from the double pendulum. Otherwise it's just a differently setup catapult. Heavy weight on small arm ==> high speed on long arm. No biggie there; that's just a...

There's a certain amount of double pendulum effect in the physics of your arm. From googling around, there are a ton of double pendulum articles relating to tennis and golf. Those are a decent...

Just because I like stirring the pot a little bit, I'm more than happy to throw long hyzers with a Sidewinder. It's the best combination of pure length + most right-to-left distance. Of course, I...

I've only played the Earlewood Classic once, but I'm not exactly sure why it fills up so fast. It's an okay course with lousy baskets that are bound to make you mad at least once per round without...

I generally putt based on speed of play. If I miss and leave myself a tap-in, and the next guy is already near his lie and ready to putt, I let him putt as the away player. On the other hand, if the...

Mountain Disc Golf Experience in Asheville, NC did it with DGU. I was a fan of it. Being able to get factory seconds with the payout was a nice bonus.

1. I believe Magnus is entirely friction-driven. It's a result of the interaction between the spinning surface and the moving air. The only interaction is friction.
