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 last time I was there, I developed a fever early day two of our three day trip. At first I thought it was maybe food poisoning, or at least a bad reaction to the meat that was brought, but the...

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.

Looks tight off the tee, but the picture from the basket makes it look like a fair and soft dogleg, so I am not sure. Likely playing it safe with a powered down FD just to stay in the fairway, and...

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,...

I still am having trouble picturing this hole - not that every hole out there is memorable. The one I was originally thinking this was is, I believe, actually on Granite, later in the round, I think....

I have been there four times, you would think I would remember this hole better. The rocks remind me of a hole that has a rather sharp dogleg right that required a driver or mid to be anhyzered,...

The idea has been floating around several local courses because having a whole number par on every hole did not accurately describe the difficulty of the course. We have several holes where 3 is...

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...

I cannot keep them in the bag, but I think that is mainly because I throw a mixed bag. My Truths and Verdicts are such long discs that they operate almost like shorter fairway drivers. That is...

I am not sure what to say. I just double checked the specs, and the World is 1mm wider but they are equally deep. So, in theory, the Force would feel “thinner” to me, but at that exact moment in the...

I do not remember saying you needed to try anything. I believe I only jumped on here to defend GStar because I throw the G-T3 (as well as G-PD and G-DD) year round and had no problems with it. If I...

G-DD comes up about 10-15 short of my Tournament Worlds, but these DDs are Line-drive straight and handle the wind a little better. The durability of the plastic is not the greatest, so even though I...
