I've only been filmed once (2012 Huk Central, Round 1) and I looked like a goon the whole time. Never realized how ugly my throw was until I saw that video. "Wow, is that how I look every time I...

Maple Hill #1 is much more downhill than Renny #18 gold. You'd be able to make it across.
I think I threw a TL from the white pad on MH #1 and had no problem getting across, and I don't have a huge...

Should be real soon now.
From what I've heard, the tee pads are in and the signs/baskets should be going in really soon. I'm meeting with the Spartanburg Parks and Rec guys later this week. I'll...

I'm never a solo TD, but I help out a ton in all of our local events. I mostly do it because someone has to, and no other competent people ever step up. There's 2-4 of us who do all the leg-work on...

Timmons is currently closed. We had a massive flood a couple of weeks ago that destroyed the bridges on the course. In addition to the course being unsafe, we're pulling the baskets and making some...

Dickinson is closer to the populated areas of MT than any other city in ND.
Perhaps the state championships should be in Fargo every year? That's as far east as you can put it, 4 hours from...

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 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...

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...
