Kinda flippy in the wind, under 300' it was a pretty straight flier, didn't really get a further rip than that.

I flatten one out I had found on the factory floor that was warped and straighten it out and it's dead flat and very overstable. It's a pig now and I love it. I plan on testing it out a lot in the next week.

Too windy here on Saturday and just too cold today and tomorrow. When daylight savings time kicks back in, on occassion I can find time after I am done teaching for the day to sneak in a quick 9. Until then I am dependant on what I can squeeze in during the weekend.

The Winter Carnival is this upcoming weekend. No matter the temp, I will be out throwing. Not sure if I will pack in the Metallic Ghost or not, but we will see.

You missed 50+ mph at BRP Saturday. Completely corkscrewed a Destroyer off the tee on the driving range hole the headwinds were so fierce.

Just curious if you know of Chad Langess (sp?) out there. I know he plays BRP leagues a ton! BTW Ray put up a very nice leader board out there, looks really sharp!

I was at Plymouth hoping to catch a lull in the wind so we could film our Legacy Ace Run Promotional Video. I was able to park a few on Hole 1 but it required some extreme hyzer. I did not even bother with mids or putters. One of my Patriots flipped up and dove directly for the creek, specifically for the little holes under the bridge. It not only found those outlets but skipped all the way underneath the bridge and into the caged off area on the other side. Mind you, I said underneath the bridge. Thankfully the water was frozen and I crawled under the bridge to get that disc back.

We quit filming after Hole 5 because hole 3 was the only hole I had any quality shots, and that was because of the tailwind. Too bad my photographer did not stay until Hole 8. I put two drives almost onto Hole 9's tee box from the long 8 box. By far my best two drives ever; one with a Rival and the other with an ESP Force.

Speaking of Destroyers, two years ago I was playing in the strongest wind that Elm Creek could offer. I was on Hole 6, the hole that plays across the top of the hill and if you turn or flip anything it will follow it all the way down.

Not only did my Pro Destroyer flip up from a decent hyzer, but it followed the hill all the way down and had enough height and speed to completely turn 180 degrees and ride the wind to Hole 3's box, which is actually behind Hole 6's.
