blah blah blah.

Half the fun of disc golf is trying new things and seeing if they work. If you stop trying new things because you are "too inexperienced" then you are dumb.

If I need to go hard left, on a low ceiling shot with a skip, I'll pull out my star boss, even if it's only 150 feet. That thing skips beautifully.

I mostly play solo rounds. My friends are losers.

When I play solo, I play much faster. I keep score, but when I have a bad shot, I will throw more discs until I do what I wanted to do (unless I...
