I have been playing for a long time and it seems age robs me of distance as form, new technique and better discs increases it. But, I am expecting to manage the course. With a shorter arm, to compete, I need to play smart and maximize what my arm and the course give me. I step to the shot seeing the shape of the shot needed and the landing spot expected. I really do have expectations of hitting that spot most of the time. Does not always happen, but that was not the question.

All expectations are dashed after switching hands. Went from throwing end zone to goal post right-handed, forehand and back and a thumber that went 270' and growing, to a left-handed backhand that goes on average 210'... and it's not pretty. I expect I'll keep trying. I do find myself daydreaming of having the option of throwing either with equality. My left handed forehand is hilarious, though.... Half the problem is I can't keep a straight face because I know I must look afflicted. What would people be golfing for, if not fun? I realize I don't want to know.

I expect to make my next shot of the round my best executed and smartest one thus far.

That's all I expect of myself during the round


After the round, I expect to look back on time well spent.

I was thinking about this the other day. It wasnt that long ago(sept 2011) where a 6 or 7 over at reedy creek was a good round but now if I dont shoot under I am extrely disappointed and I expect myself to shoot well under par.

I find myself upset on any course(except maybe renny gold or somthing) where I dont end up near par or under. Most of my expectations have grown as my putting got better. I used to be worried about the simplest of putts but now I find myself expecting to make everything 20' and in(not that I do) and I get upset when I miss one that close.

I just hope I can look back next year and say wow my game has improved even more. We will see how things progress

I agree. I usually get around par or under par most of the courses I play. However, I never expect to do well. Enjoying myself is the most important part. If I do happen to play well, that's just an added bonus.

Still expecting to find the magical discs that lets me throw 400'+ and sink 30'+ putts. Until then I'll keep trying to have fun.

For me pushing myself and getting better is where the fun is. I am extremely laid back when I play but under the surface I am really focused and intent on getting better.

I expect to do better every time I go out to the course and enjoy myself. Disc golf has been a godsend for me.

Sorry but I'm gonna get a little sappy. My best friend introduced me to disc golf right after my grandmother passed away and everything was incredibly stressful. Disc golf became a release and a way to take a break. I pick up my bag and trade it for the weight of the world on my shoulders.

So when I'm out on the course, I expect to enjoy it. I expect myself to keep that in mind. I expect a break from the world, so that afterwards I can jump back in rejuvenated.
