Hey Brock, I may be joining you in the late cancellation group. Slightly turned knee Monday (no problem, a couple of trips to the chiropractor & would be good to go). But the weather looks...complicated, so... save the knee? Then, today at work, I spontaneously developed all the symptoms of a possible torn retina, so heading to the eye doctor.

The good news for everybody else is that I'm a natural Murphy's law dowsing rod: if I carry an umbrella, it's less likely to rain. If I touch plumbing, it's gonna inexplicably leak. If i make an investment, it's sure to tank. If I drop from an event, the odds of good breaks in the weather improve!

...but at least, in the end, I'm going to attain true enlightenment. So I've got that going for me. Which is nice.

Sucks Jeff. Don't mess around with that eye. my brother had a detached retina back in the 80s. Two years ago it popped back up and has had 6 surgeries since...




...Only you could make me sad and laugh all in one post.

If it rains, there might be less wind. That could be a plus! But most likely it will be a sideways windy rain lol

the forecast almost always call for rain, and it hasn't the past few years. Maybe the Bowling Green Bubble will strike again

Well, that was some squishy shoes disc golf. Anyone in love with any of the molds from the players pack? I have mine available for trade.

Congrats to my brother, Rob, for taking down the Legends division by 19 shots. It was only a two horse race, but a win's a win.

Shooting > 900 golf at age 70 is amazing. Congrats to him!

Baskets are older - rusty with shallow trays - and not the best at catching hard putts. It's a course that feels like you should be able to shoot several under, but in my experience it is a three-fest and a par round will be rated around 950. Given the distances and the lines required, I would try to play a practice round here. It can be played quickly with little chance to lose a disc.
I played this course sloppy. Didn't make any putts outside of 20' and took a 56

More than half the holes are wide open with OB off the fairways (which are mostly generous), but there is a 700, an 800, and a 900 foot hole. The remainder of the course is exceptionally tight, and water comes into play on a couple of them. The worst time to play this course is in the spring, as it can get easily waterlogged and that combined with the seemingly ever-present high winds can make playing there a miserable experience. Given its length, you are going to get some fours and maybe a couple of fives, so it is key to get enough deuces (especially on holes 14-18) to have a competitive score. Even (54) is 1000-rated, and I would be very happy with anything under 60. If you don't have time to practice all of the courses, you can skip this one as it is WYSIWYG.
I played the woods holes very well and the putter treated me very well. Shot a 53 and was pumped!

Par is a really good score even though the course isn't that long - you will throw a lot of mids and fairway drivers off the tee to put yourself in a good approach position. For this year they have closed a couple of the more open holes due to construction, and I DK what the replacement holes are like.
Started slow, but I managed the course fairly well. Minimized the damage and took a 60

Other than that, there are only a couple of holes that you would need to throw or at least walk through to see what line to take - I wouldn't bother with a practice round here if you have to choose, partly because it is a bit of a drive away from the other courses. There are a decent number of deuce opportunities and some OB to avoid, but otherwise my goal would be a couple under par from the longs.
Started off very slow and missed a few putts in the 20' range. This was the worst weather we faced. Shot a 55 and could have shaved off 3-4 with minor adjustments

It did! I was happy overall and had a great time. There is always room for improvement and I was happy to put in 4 solid rounds.
