If you were 18 years of age , you HAD to play in the Open Division. They stated , this is where you LEARN how to Play Disc Golf and get Better.

Did not matter if you shot 27 Over Par or 16 Under Par.

Everyone who was 18 to 35 years of age , all played in the same division.

My Problem is , I know Players who still play Amateur or Novice Player after 10+ years. What the ........

Some don't want to play Tournaments , I understand that.
Some play Tournaments and S... the Bed , so to speak.
Please do not play Tournaments if all you want to do is complain.

Get out and Practice , Practice , Practice , Practice and Practice some more.

Never stop learning and experimenting and Learn how to get better.

I have some Issues , of course , with east coast players. I'm sorry you have very crappy weather.
Not my fault that I'm able to play Year Round with Shorts and Teeshirt. I choose to live in better climate.
Are you originally from/live in Europe? Your capitalization is ... intriguing.

Driving with a putter is how you learn to throw for real distance.


Can we get back to the Tern on this Tern thread?

Is it more like a flow or a sword? Sounds like the new plastic is very nice.

What are you talking about ?

Have you ever thrown a drive with a Aviar ?

I have Aced 17 holes with a Aviar. At least that many over 250 feet.

I did throw some Putts with a driver on purpose.

If you Putt with Drivers in a Tournament , you may be made fun of or questioned by your group.

The Champion Tern is a fun disc to throw.

I have thrown both the flat top and pop-top versions.
Pop-top may be a bit more overstable at the end of it's flight.

Lighter weights seem to carry a bit further for me than max weight. Might be the way I put snap on the disc though.

Always experiment with different disc's and see what you like.
You may also want to experiment with different weights to see what fits you the best.

With Innova Disc's , weight is more important than color.
I have thrown some Discraft ,where the color makes a difference for some reason.

I throw drives with drivers. Usually 13 speed because the disc gets to the basket faster.

So you've had more than 17 aces with an Aviar?

Sometimes putting with drivers is good for when there's a lot of wind.
