Default One of those days...

One of those days where you lose three of your most-used discs to deep water on one course. RIP Surge, Crank, and Tee-Bird.

Oof. Yeah that hurts. May I recommend a snorkeling mask in addition to the trunks? I think goggles/masks are an underutilized tool among disc golfers.

I've always used losing discs as an excuse to try a new mold/manufacturer...

The folks at Dynamic Discs understand your pain.

I would consider (1) floating discs, (2) throwing discs you are prepared to lose on water holes, or (3) an alternate tee area. Three goners in one day, tough to handle but hopefully not oft repeated. Good luck with those replacements, sometimes good things come from a new line-up.

When I was growing up and learning discgolf our course was Sleepy Hollow State Park in Laingsburg MI. Me and a couple friends who worked at the state park would go after work most days.

To anyone that has played there....hole 9 is a fkn monster when you are just learning how to play. Left with an approach where you have a 10 ft wide alley that is 100 or so ft long with a swamp on the left and a lake on the right. We had 7 discs at the time we were sharing between us that we had borrowed from the Camp Event Coordinator and put all 7 of them into the swamp.

So one of the girls with us felt super bad and went "Swamping", it was one of the most disgusting places I have ever seen someone go. But she came out with 20 discs and not one of them were the 7 we threw in lol. Spent the rest of that summer with that as a thing, it was the 20yo college guy complex...if I girl could do it we could do it kind of thing...found a ton of discs that summer but not once did we ever find the 7 we lost lol. Gave them all to the Camp Event Coordinator and called it good.

TL;DR - I feel ya man. But imo discs are more of a rental than a purchase. Eventually you WILL lose a disc. And eventually you WILL find a disc lol.
