This day was no different, so I thought. I pulled out a Champ Monarch, walked up to the tee and was going to throw a little turnover shot starting at the right edge of the pond and turning over into the open field. I let go of the disc waaaaay early with a hyzer angle, and not nearly enough spin for it to even start to turn over. It landed in the middle of the pond, and skipped, but still about 30ft from the edge.

On a warm up shot of all things? I guess I'll aim more toward the field next time...
Lesson learned: Carry a trash disc of a Dragon for such a shot.

I've lost so many discs that I've gotten into a habit of when I'm stepping on the teepad, I kiss the disc, pat it a little bit and say "It was nice knowing you, honey. Have a nice trip." LOL

I'm playing Bennett's Creek in Suffolk, VA. I'm throwing a few different shots, trying to figure out the best way through a few trees just off the red tees on #7. My lime green ESP Comet bounces off the tree and lands in a thicket that's inches deep in dead leaves. After throwing a couple more, I go look for it and forty minutes later, I sadly give up and play on.
I get a call two weeks later. A really nice local tells me he found it on the back nine.
Some other schmuck had found it and lost it and the the good guy finds it and gives it back.
If the disc could only talk...

Speaking of losing Discs I always happen to find them just sitting in the last holes basket, also there's never any numbers on the Disc either. Does this ever happen to anybody else? I must of found like 3-4 Discs this way.

Wow, I have never seen one left in a basket?!

I have found several just laying out in the open. Same here, they usually aren't marked. I figure someone either forgot to pick it up, or dropped it. I've forgot to pick them up a few times myself, when changing discs. So now that is the first thing I do, pick up my drive and put it back in the bag. I mark with a mini, I'd much rather leave a mini than my go to driver!

My son has about the same putting skills I have. None!!!

He'll miss a putt, reach into his bag and throw as many as 5 more, most of them missing the basket. Every once in while, he'll make one in the basket.

He'll go around picking up the discs that miss and forget the disc in the basket. LOL

If you invest in a practice basket, and practice a lot at different distances, your putting will improve. Also, make sure you putter feels really good in your hand, and flies like you like. Also, try others putters to see what you like and don't like about different putters.

I tried alot of putters, before I settled on the one I know use.
