Played two rounds in Winona today - morning round at the Willows, afternoon at the Woods.

AM round was forgettable.

PM round, made par there for the first time. Threw soft and for accuracy, made a couple big putts, so I'm pretty satisfied.

Beautiful day today to be out and about at a couple pretty scenic courses.

First 18 hole round under my age - granted it was an easy course (NorthRidge Church in Plymouth, MI), and I'm getting up there, but I think 7 under is pretty solid for a 4515 ft 18 hole course.

^^^You're 6!?! Well that explains the comments...

My partner and I shot +1 at Ann Mo doubles today, with the ace pot at $1200. It may be that no doubles has ever shot over par before. I don't want to talk about it.

Played a solo round of 9 holes at the local course and shot -2 (not great for me). Then two guys I know show up that play a lot of tournies and it gets in my head and I crap the bed and shoot +3 my second 9...

I missed a 4 foot putt. That's how bad it was.

Like baboon butt, plus the bottom dropped on me by hole 15 and soaked me to the bone. But I was out there to return a disc to its rightful owner so all's well that ends well.

Played well at BRP on Saturday so the confidence was high heading out for two rounds of 9 at Loch Ness. So, of course, I struggled. Couldn't hit a line to save my life. I am, however, getting proficient with a forehand snap roller to get out of trouble.
It was fun to see the improvement my fiancee made though. She's pushing her hot pink opto diamond out around 200 feet now in just four rounds and some field time. She could only throw it fifty feet to start. She also canned a 35 foot par putt to snag a par. it's pretty cool because she has RA and there's a limit to what she can do physically, but as of yet disc golf isn't stressing her joints much. Kind of fun to watch the newbie development.
* moment of silence for my lost gray GL Havoc on hole 2.

I just got back from my round. Threw 8 over. About average, but sucky. On hole 8, I found myself with the worst lie I've ever had before. I was right behind a willow type tree and couldn't go FH, BH, over, under....nothing. I tried a crazy BH anny that turned over too much and ended up with double bogey from what should have been par.

I think I need to do some extra work with bad lies, seeing how to get out of trouble.

There is nothing worse than getting to your lie and discovering there is literally no way to throw a shot of any kind. Well, except maybe not being able to find your disc. Unfortunately for me, I know this feeling all too well.

Played Ham Lake today and shot -9 for 9 holes. Had an ACE on #3 from the short tees (Back tee there kind of sucks so we play short, 280 ft.). Chained out an ace on #8 too. I was in the zone!
