I've been married 36 years, and my wife and I agreed long ago that Valentine's Day was a dumb holiday so it's just another day for us. That said, I've played both Saturday and Sunday for the past 3...

I guess I'm particularly sensitive to that term from playing competitive ball golf for many years and have seen examples of people manipulating their handicaps to gain a competitive advantage...

You're close. I play MPG because I'm eligible for it and it pays out cash - full stop. I play it whether I'm the highest rated or lowest rated player in the division. Calling that sandbagging is...

I wholeheartedly agree with "to each his own" - I have been simply expressing my own opinion as well, and I have no idea where other GMs in my area stand on the subject. I just go with the flow and...

Obviously I disagree. I can either play open Grandmasters and win cash or play Advanced and win discs. I choose cash - how is that sandbagging?

I'm not saying I'd win first place place in...

I don't think you have to spend the whole weekend with them - you just have to play a couple of rounds of disc golf with them :D.

In fact, one of the biggest drawbacks to playing in smaller...

IMO this is flawed logic. If today you and I are both rated 930 we should play in the same division. It's not like we are committing to a division for the entire year - if 6 months from now you are...

How so? If you mean you can see how many under par a player is, I would guess that's just so you can see how each of them are doing vs. the rest of the field. If that's the case, then par can be...

You reference course par, and I like that too. Putting a score in reference to round ratings is exactly what I want to know you tell me your score. You can throw in details like "I got a three on...

I've been playing ball golf for over 40 years, and I do the same thing as I do with disc golf, only I count my score based on +/- 4 and add/subtract from 36 for each nine holes. For most of the guys...

What are you trying to do with this? Are you trying to end up with a number that predicts how well a player is likely to do in a future round, or to group players with similar abilities?

Earlier this spring a buddy of mine exploded a CE Valk when he hit a tree about 80 feet off the tee. The rest of us didn't say anything about it and let him rethrow off the tee - he threw that disc...

What a shame. One of the best designed courses I have ever played and it was only going to get better as they were planning to put in additional tees and basket locations.

Sycamore is a great course, but take a map or a guide - there are virtually no signs and you can only see the baskets from the tee on 5-6 holes.
I love Handyman and definitely think it is worth the...

First PDGA event, at the course I learned to play on, next to last hole of the second round - my first ace ever.
