Bradford. Worst round ever, by far. Pretty much one good throw, hyzer flipped my new Avenger SS for a birdie on #10, but otherwise complete garbage. Throwing from places I've never been before. Planning Hornet's Nest tomorrow but, man, something's get to change. I guess a hangover could only help.

Shot even at Hiller, which is decent for me, but my buddy lost his go-to EZ Buzzz in the water on hole #1, which rattled him just enough that I beat him by 2 strokes. I saw my opportunity and took it.

Reminds me of the time our club was playing Ript Revenge for Bag Tags. One of the guys gets a "don't use this disc for the rest of the round" cards and uses it on another member's "go-to" Buzzz. That was it. One of out best guys got thrashed because he couldn't use that one Buzzz. He has 6 Buzzz's in his bag, but goes down in flames 'cause he can't use his favorite one.

Default First Round of 2014

Shot even par on Knobley Mt. DGC, which is about 2.5 throws worse than my average. However, it was almost pitch black and I just played with an Glow Aviar Putter that I haven't thrown in years. And my only light was a UV flashlight. I didn't bother lighting the baskets for just one round. So, I'd say that this was a pretty good start to 2014 for me.

The New Year brought new hopes of improvement. I threw a +7, which is about average. BUT, the pins were long, and it would have been a +4, or +3 if they were short. My putting was good, but not perfect. Drives were decent, but I did slam into an early tree on a late hole.

The worst part was the stage fright that occurred from playing with three new players, who I didn't know. I got a little uncomfortable, and ended up making throws that I'd not usually make if playing alone.

Either way, it was a beautiful day, so I can't complain.

We play our New Year's Day fun tourney at Winton Woods, which was actually built in 1978. So deuces galore when the wind is calm like today. I was lucky enough to take Intermediate with a 44+46. A couple of Open players fought for the win: the course record 36 wasn't enough to beat the champ's 37+37.

I know...easy course, but a fun way to start the year. 116 players, 5 aces. Welcome, 2014!

My first round of the year was at a new local course. The temp was about 42 degrees, which isn't bad. However, the wind was a constant 20-24 mph. On top of that, it was very muddy; busted my butt and slid down a hill on my new Grip, UG! I chalked it up to practice.

Played in Truckee, CA yesterday with my son. Icy teepads and slippery footing but played one of my best rounds ever......and my second ace ever on hole #2!! Hyzer line around a tree about 250' , landed about 25-30 ft right of the basket and skipped right in! 167 Champion Tern. It's my second ace in 63 days, both with Terns.
I was -4 after the first 3 holes but missed a bunch of birdie putts and 2 bogeys & finished at -3.
Great day in the mountains and what a start to the New Year!

Not too bad today. I played Walden Park at lunch and shot -3 (9 holes). Best score ever at that course for me. I birdied #2, #6, and #7. On #2 I managed a pretty straight shot with a Roc3 that left me with a shortish putt, not exactly parked, but not too bad. On #6 I threw a relatively straight, high shot that faded into the trees and got knocked down right next to the basket. On #7 I threw the best roller of my life and parked it 5 feet from the basket in front of a witness, no less. The guy (another DGer) who saw my roller actually came up to me and asked me how I did it. I had to admit to the guy that it was the best roller I ever threw in my life, but I showed him how I did it anyway (what type of disc I used, the angle, the amount of spin, etc...). To quote Ice Cube, "I got to say it was a good day".
