you could see your frustration on the two bogies, but when you threw the island and went ob the second time, you can see this smirk on your face.
sorry but I thought it was sweet. it showed how even a pros of pros can have bad throws and even a spree of them. you just have to shake it off, because ultimately you got into this sport for fun, although for you it has progressed from there.
i think how you handled it was a great show of sportsmanship, and charter on your part. Good luck this season.
i can't wait to get revenge on that course... i played the front 9 like a champ shot like 20 or something under for the 4 rounds but about 10 over on the back 9 there and those 2 back to back holes were daggers for me. i have pretty much thought of that back 9 every day wanting revenge on that course. the smirk was kinda like " you got me course, you win this time" haha... i had no clue i was leading either so there wasn't any pressure like that.

Just before your problems, you eagled a par 5 which after watching all the other players looked impossible? Did anyone else eagle that hole that you heard of?

i don't think anyone did it was a longggggg hole with probably the toughest tee shot shot on a par five... lots of risk reward on it

I believe that the sidearm throw in disc golf is taught WAY inappropriately. You shouldn't have to hold your elbow right up against your body. That's just asking for future injury. You are never taught in baseball to throw sidearm that way. There are some short throws I'll keep it closER, but I see this mistake [IMHO] being made all the time, even by pros.

Stretch your forearm and shoulder a lot before throwing sidearm, your chance of injury will be reduced, greatly, just by warming up properly.

Didn't mean to butt in your answer Paul, just makes me whince when I see younger guys throwing as hard as they can with a 90 degree elbow.

Hey Paul, do your hands ever get really dry, almost to the point where you can't grip a disc? If so, how do you eliminate this problem?

I tend to get dry hands rather than sweaty hands ... I've never used a birdie bag because my hands are naturally dry.

Breath out slow, hot air on your throwing hand right before you grip the disc. Gets some condensation onto your hand and you get a real good grip.Works great in the winter to warm your hand up some too!

Carry a damp micro fiber towel in your bag.

Ever since I started doing that I've had no issues with grip, or dry, dusty hands.
