I don't think it is possible to beat a course but I feel like I got beaten if I don't card a birdie.

I didn't modify my DB until I had my course. It was almost better without inner chains because it made less noise. Super easy to add chains to it. "S" hooks at the top and bottom. 2/0 straight link...

Discatcher, It catches well and is highly visible. The only down side is they are more prone to graffiti than the mach III.
