I look at them from time to time. Probably a good idea. Surely beats going to car at lunch to add charge.

Yup. I suspect that keeping score on a phone will become the norm one day, but it holds that 1) some people, whatever the percentage, don’t have smart phones, 2) some don’t want to use them for...

The holes required because of the work going on in the park are boring, but I get that the TD/tournament had to work with the land they had.

My complaining looks like bad form bc we all know the...

As an 894-rated player, I’d hate to imagine I’m minor improvement away from soiling a major tournament. Floor should probably be 950.

In Baltimore, it’s 100 degrees and 94.57% humidity come July/August. I wouldn’t mind but my insulin pod does not handle high temps well, so there’s a risk there.

Played in 42 degrees recently with...

I watched that video just dreaming of what it would be like to know you could birdie any hole.. On my home course, my mulligan challenge would be shooting par on every hole long-to-long.

I’m not a belonger. Not a loner either, but I don’t get a any sense of membership out of hobbies. Being sponsored by a company at a low/ambassador level wouldn’t do anything for me. And I’d be a...

Until the terms of player contracts are known, we’ll never know. Is being 17th on Discraft or Innova worse than being 4th on Westside? I’m not saying he was 4th; just eyeballing a comparison.

Innova has always had a stranglehold on the rec market as first to market. That DD had a trial run in some Dick’s stores is a start to eating into Innova’s dominance. I don’t know the status of that...

He played much better w/Discmania, so that would make sense. Sure, there could be other explanations for his off year.

Seeing as he seemed to be Paul’s shadow in tournaments later in the season, this “news” is the opposite of shocking.

I’ve lost every purple disc I’ve owned other than the midnight blue/dark purple Gstar Leopard I was stupid enough to fall in love with. I kind of want to lose it just to get the inevitable over with.
