My first tournament was in the summer of 2017. I had been playing since August ‘15 but had only gotten somewhat serious the previous fall.I had been laid up with an illness off and on all spring, so it felt good just to play.

I played intermediate and found myself on the second round lead card thanks primarily to my ability to consistently par holes and to an ace on a short lefty hyzer hole (I threw only LHBH then). I still get a kick that I aced with an Innova Panther when I throw Zone on that hole now. My card was ecstatic about the ace — even more so than me. That was cool to experience and speaks to the communal nature of DG tournaments.

I crapped the bed in the second round. Me and another guy on the lead card shot the worst R2s from a field of 18-20. The two guys who came in 1st and 2nd are now regularly competitive in Advanced. I’m still a mid-pack Intermediate player.
