My partner Chris and I took the W in MA2 at the R'Ice bowl Saturday. Great course out on a ball golf course, but plenty of interesting landscaping, elevation changes, and woods. We scored well off the back of me being able to throw farther than the majority of people in MA2, and carrying overstable discs for the wind. Shot a 54 and a 49, second set of 18 baskets had more birdie attempts. Got rolling in the second round and made a few jump putts and great drives. Threw pretty much everything but the super OS D1 and flippy F2.
Today took second in a small tournament called the Frozen Lotus. Pretty happy with how I shot, made a couple mistakes, but hit some good jump putts today to cancel out the 2-3 inside the circle misses. Overall 907 and 947 rated 15 hole rounds.
Threw basically the same bag, minus the two D1's and 1 wraith. Never threw the super flippy F2 either day.

That was a fun course yesterday, some interesting shots. I was two back with three holes left (4-5-6) after doinking a 10 footer on 2.

So I decided to go for it on 4 and got burned. I can make it but it's a 1/20 shot and I threw the wrong disc. The risk/reward balance on 4 long might not be there for trying to go for it, especially after watching 5 layups from the lead card.

Of course to make my decision worse, I picked up those two stroked in the two wooded holes, meaning if I had played safe we would have tied. But sometimes I just want to throw fun shots.

I shot 31 on the shorts, 30 on the mixed and 29 on the longs. Ass backwards...

I suspect that 4 Long is less than a 1/20 shot. I even laid up from the shorts. Our MPO group from the shorts had one park job, one lucky to not be OB birdie, 2 OB and one layup.

I think I shot par shorts, par longs, and then plus 1 on the mixed layout.
Funnily enough my entire group was within 40 feet of the pin 4 short. We started on that hole and it gave us a chance to play around before the round trying stuff and we found that the best shot was (rhbh) a lofted anny flick. I actually threw the stego on that one and it worked out pretty well.
After the second round I went out and tried a couple shots from the longs and I got a starfire to within 20 with a high hyzer, but the angle is tricky.

Overall from short it was a strange choice of hole. Up there in strangeness with I believe 6? long? the second pine forest hole with basically no line. I threw a wimpy forehand roller both rounds, should have been a 2,3 but I missed the 10-50' putt the first round and ended up going 3,3.

Reminded me of one hole at the Blockhouse with a similar problem of zero line.

yep- I threw forehand rollers on it too. hopefully he will open it up a bit more.

Mike is apparently beginning to get the message on the one at BH. He moved it to take away people throwing the hyzer off to the right but the new tee has so little in the way of a line that now even more people throw the hyzer. Holes 2 and 3 on Sunny are currently undergoing complete revamping, mostly to get hole 2 out of the swamp. I am told they both have the potential for considerable added length and both have legit, non-gimmicky fairways. We shall see... apparently lots of changes in stall for BH by the fall.

Two rounds at Rock, solo short - 62 and longs with Luke - 64. I kept notes on my mistakes in my shorts round, missed two very short putts, and any hole I had a bad drive on I doubled down with a bad upshot. So 3 bad drives, 5 bad scramble/second shots. Only birdie was from a miracle 80+ foot PA4 toss in.

Bag was similar to how it's shaken out lately, difference is I decided to toss in a couple DX Rocs from an ice bowl just for fun. So
400 D1 (pop top, has a little turn)
* Wraith (easier FH, more turn)
* Starfire
Luster FB
moonshine Trident
400 F1
3x F2 (400 proto, 700 hyzerflip, 400G roller wannabe)
2x dx Roc
Z Comet
SP Breaker
400g PA4
300 PA4
Stego
Mercy
