You know I've been getting better at working my Champion Tern in the Wind. Technically it's not supposed to do well in a headwind but I have been making it work.

That's kind of crazy that the D4 fights the wind better than the D3. You would think it would be the other way around. lol

I thought the same! The D3 would hit the wind, turn and just hold that line until it petered out. The D4 would hit the wind, turn, hold the line for a second or two and then fight it's way back.

I've been really liking both discs a lot. Glad I gave them a second chance.

I've never thrown a Tern. Been wanting to check them out.

I hit chains with my patriot on a blind anhyzer at la mirada back 18, hole 16. Would have been an awesome ace. Then I flew a foot left of hole 17 basket chain high. Haven't played in a couple months and it seemed like I was throwing just as far easier, and also throwing farther if I gave it a lot of force. Go figure?

Played a course I've never played (Winged Deer Park) today and tried out some new discs (Crank, Tern, Roc3, and a Mace). Did surprisingly well even throwing discs that I'm not familiar with. Thinking I'm definitely gonna have to rethink the all Prodigy bag.

First time I've ever left a course in the middle of the round. Head wasn't in the game, it was uncharacteristically busy, and I was sore from an earlier workout. Oh well. The one highlight was birdieing a hole I've never birdied before. Got a Star Valkyrie in a trade yesterday and just busted out an awesome drive to park the thing. This Valkyrie seems like a longer Leopard. Me likey

Here's to a better day tomorrow!

wow. wind sucks. I know I know thank you captain obvious. Went out to the course the ace race is at on Saturday. The open holes were dang near impossible. I have played in some wind but today it was gusting up to about 20mph. watched one putt get lifted up and carried twenty feet past. The only way to overcome adversity is to practice in it. Hopefully the wind dies down for Saturday.

i played like ass. I got stung by some bees, nearly lost a few discs, missed a bunch of easy drives and upshots. and finished last in doubles.

But, my favorite teebird has been turned into the local shop so I'll get it back soon, i hit some long putts, and my new Blizz Champ Condor is freaking awesome.

Shot my PB at one of my local courses (-7) and the baskets were in the longs. Driving better and putting good.
