I have not checked with the new snow and blowing drifts, but during the last round of thaw, most of the tee pads were flooded and then refroze. If it were not for those early winter thaws, most of...

I can never make WWW during the school year because of my kids, but I try to hit it up during the summer. Does not help that moving to Hutch means the best attended leagues are now over an hour away....

I have a DyeMax Justice in my everyday bag that is not as overstable as the ones I use in my tournament setup. That makes it quite useful, especially when I need to spike something in or need to...

Another big thing I hate about winter, especially if there was a lot of snow, is that those low places that collected all the ice are also the low places that will flood once everything melts, and...

Yes, for the obvious movie reference and the likelihood of hitting an intended line in winter is the same percentage as those "precise" shooting stormtroopers that Ben Kenobi fears so much. But more...

I have already posted once stating that I will play 365, but my mood is so greatly determined by the quality of the tee pads. I have enough clothes and gear to ensure that I will at least survive no...

I play all winter long. Dialing it back in every possibly way is the norm, from foot work to unloading the bag for practice. I hate winter, but it is not a deterrent. However, there gets a point...

The picture does not do it justice. It is not a "slight uphill". I have 400 foot power, and I can barely reach it. It plays closer to 370 or so. You have to throw uphill, which means nose-up, and it...

Probably an FD at less than full power, going for accuracy and not distance.

I threw two SE Explorers (bubblegum pink if that matters) to the point where they were 7/10. My GStar TeeBird3s were nearly identical in flight but where either easier to throw for the same distance,...

Explorer - for my style of play, it was glideless, requiring way more effort to get results similar to my TeeBird3s. It was workable, so not a huge drop-off in performance if I had to rely on the...

We are going to get 0-12 inches of snow tomorrow, so I went ace hunting at the local 9 where you throw putters and mids on every shot. During the last week, I had 5 metal hits spread over 3 courses,...

The two reasons I think that most pros do not throw Gazelles are:

1) It is an older disc with not much love. Therefore, most top players who are new likely never experimented with one because it...
