Glow Round Question for you Glow Rounders...

Is it just me (I haven't played one in years), or do you feel you shoot better at night when you really can't see anything?

I felt like I was hitting all my lines, running the chains all night, and could actually jump putt well, which looks more like a fish (trying to do the same thing) out of water.

Discuss...

I think what happens to my game at night is that I become much more relaxed. Doesn't mean I actually play better but I tend to have more fun than usual. I agree that it is almost automatic to be more aggressive and have some runs you might not usually have.

i think there are some good reasons why u might shoot better at night. it could be using less discs or only using ones you know really well , i dont have any glow discs but usally only have enough leds to put on my go to discs.

Another thing that helps if playing a course you know like the back of your hand is your playing almost entirelly on instinct if you cant see the basket, i know i play my best when my brain butts out. And one of the biggest advantages especially here in houston is the lack of wind at night compared to the daytime which is almost always 10-15mph+ except for maybe a couple hours at dawn when its still calm. I dont know if i shoot better or not but i rarely have a bad round at night .

Only tried it once so its hard to say yes I shoot better or no, but I do know that the tape that came with my LED beacon sucked. This affected my mental game. Looking to try it again and see if I shoot better this time.

Any one else have problems with the tape?

I have not played a night round, but I feel like I might be better if it is dark enough. I have a strange habit of being able to hit the only tree on a hole even when it is not in my way. I think I focus so much on not hitting it that I subconsciously throw right at it. If it is dark and I can't see the tree, I should throw great, in theory.

Wind is typically less of a factor after the sun goes down. I think its also easier to focus at night because you can't see any distractions like some hot chicks that are always plaguing the courses. Although its kinda spooky being out there by yourself and you hear animals around you but can't see them.
