i threw okayish. i'm experimenting with high speed discs now that i can hit 375-400 with my patriot and OLF on a local course (on what i consider "great" throws). so of course i'm going by the tee sign which i doubt the veracity of, but whatever.

bought a clear VIP (WHAT?!?!?! NEVER SEEN ONE BEFORE, EVER, IN ALL MY INTERNET SEARCHES) sword and a white GL havoc (revisiting an old flame from my hucker days) to see what i could pull off now that i can reach out a bit further.

i gotta say . . . there are some long holes, 430 tunnel shot on a low line, that i could see myself in deuce position for. and i hit 400 with both the havoc and the sword with a lot less effort/hoping and praying. i could just throw them both and know they were going 400 feet. it was great. i will say i noticed a definite "tipping point" where the discs would either do as they were supposed to or not behave at all. will take some training to get it down right.

that said, i nearly parked my patriot on a 405' foot wide open (signage again) hole . . . and my havoc/sword went probably 420-430 . . . so not as big of a jump as i'd hoped, despite being easier to achieve said distance. i mean, come on . . . speed 7 vs 12? close to the same distance?

I had my best round ever today at Kit Carson park. It's set up a bit easier than normal but without any par 4s scoring is about as tough. I shot -10 with 10 birdies and no boggies. I also had a few really nice ace runs. The longest putt I made was about 28'. My tee shots were better than ever. :-) I've really been working my BH form and quit smoking weed about 10 days ago, after being a daily for a really long time. I'm glad it's paying dividends already. I do miss smoking, but the way I've been playing makes me think I won't ever go back... well at least not to the same degree. :-)

Threw well. Score did not reflect at only -1 but that is irrelevant. I throw RHBH, OH, and RHFH. RHFH are usually OS discs for distance or get out of trouble. Yesterday and today all drives and approaches were RHFH. Working the finesse game throwing sweeping annys and hyzer flipping. Hyzer flipping BH is fun but getting a FH to flip and rip on purpose is awesomely cool!! That and ripped a champ Leo FH to about 350'. Fun times

Shot my best at Shaver Park, a -3 , which is a 1027 on DGCR. I got an ace on hole #4, I struggled with this hole all year. It could have been an even better day as I missed 4 other birdie putts. I was playing out of my mind today on this course today, smooth drives. Now to continue doing that...

Won my division at league by two strokes. Went off the top on the course's baby hole. Would have been a $120ish ace had it stuck. Settled for $3 in 51 cash from my card mates.

Did some field work and was consistently hitting 280 from a standstill. I also worked on approach shots and was dialed in perfectly with my Ions. Let's hope it carries over to the course...

I played two rounds at Oregon Park in Marietta GA today. Played average and almost hit my first ace (disc hit the back rim of the basket and "lipped" out)... Gonna get it one day
