I'm a big fan of both Asheville and Greenville.

Greenville has a strong economy right now, driven mainly by engineering with GE, BMW, Fluor, Michelin, Hubbell, among others. For as much as I love...

I had ACL surgery two years ago and had to take a lot of time off. I think I did about four months of no playing at all, then a month or two of primarily forehand (right knee surgery, RHBH player)...

Retee instead of drop zone?


I didn't mind it too much. Sometimes I think a course needs holes that you can only birdie if you do something great. Not everyone should be able to birdie every...

Hole 1 pro pad was bumped back about 20-30 feet. Required a touch more power and a little shaping around a tree near the tee pad.
Holes 2-9 were unchanged.
10 was moved almost straight uphill to...

When I'm talking to a non-player, I'll typically refer to it as frisbee golf. Maybe I mumble or slur my words together, but nobody knows what I'm talking about when I call it disc golf. "Dis culf?...

Probably about 40-45' for me. Any longer than that and I'll fluff it up, giving it a "maybe it'll go in if I'm lucky, but when I miss, it's not going to far."

Doof hasn't said that at all. Wobble might indeed make a disc fly more understable. Aerodynamics is black magic, and unsteady aero even more so. I have a Masters degree in the topic and I couldn't...

So, like, inertia? A plane resists the perturbation because it's heavy. A disc is more affected by a wind gust because it's light. Or, probably more accurately, light relative to its wing size (wing...

A ball has nothing to do with this conversation. It's a complete red herring.

Aerodynamic stability is the tendency of an object in flight to return to its initial state after a perturbation. An...

He's just changing the axis. It's still only rotating around one axis, but he just changed the orientation of that axis. All he's doing is introducing wobble.

Well, for one, the axis of rotation is always through the center of the disc. Wobble occurs when the axis of rotation is not perpendicular to the flight plate.

The primary rip point is your thumb and index finger. If you're managing to touch the disc after it leaves your thumb/index finger, I'd like to see how you're doing it.
