False, I did not lean towards, think or infer that I am great. I even stated that Im not calling myself great. Again, do a better job of reading and do not assume false things on other people.

I mean, you basically just need to know what kind of ground play you get. You don't need to know when the grass was mowed and where the blade was set on the mower.
You may not register *bermuda and rye set at 7/16"* vs *blue grass at 1 1/4" cut* some of us might, but that's not the point, you're going to approach that basket sitting on the [ball golf] fairway differently than you'll approach that basket sitting in the rough vs the basket in the woods on bare eroded soil with roots showing.

Then figure out if the price of gas may have affected how often they mow.

Finally, I consult my horoscope and biorhythm.
You joke but last month during the gas shortage on the east coast a few parks in the area didn't mow for a couple of weeks.

Around here (NW Ohio, Black Swamp region) many parks won't mow the entire course until after Memorial Day. We wind up with near-knee-high grasses and weeds until then because it is favorable to the alternative of completely chewed up fairways where the tractor mowers get stuck and try to grind their way out. Low ceiling shots play very different depending on if we're pre- or post-holiday.

Love the direction the discussion went. For doubters of how many factors are calculated in the brain, both consciously and subconsciously, think about a short approach with a complicated or serious landing area. You're thinking about a lot of things! The pros think about those things from further out, with faster discs. The better players throwing a midrange shot are probably factoring in as many things as you do on a short approach.

I've noticed in the last couple of years that pros on coverage seem to be getting a little better with landing angles.

Got an update from the doctor. No major tear or surgery needed. I do have really bad bursitis in my left knee. Will be getting more information later today. Thanks for all the prayers.
He has some highlights from PO on his twitter and is wearing a small wrap on the left knee. Maybe that's why he didn't play very well in the first round?...

But this green is a sharp downhill slope, the close left is poison ivy (no interest in going there, but a putt is available). The green is hard pack dirt and is wide open in the sun, ensuring NOTHING with stick.

I could throw a midrange hyzer.....landing 40' short and hope for a nice slide, but short of the green is pretty sticky grass.

I used to throw a Blowfly Blunt at this pin. Nice and sticky midrange, I don't bag it anymore. Now I pull out an ESP Chally and throw a nice high, lofty straight putter at the pin. I gives me the best chance to land flat, minimize skip and slide. Do I run through that list every time I play the hole....naw. I play the course enough to know. But, in a tournament, I will walk through the best scenario for each throw and try to make smart decisions based on the information.

Seems like this is what I often do walking to my next shot. I frequently have a semi plan made by the time I get to my disc.
Blowfly was a fun disc to throw! I still throw mine in the bag once in a while on short wooded courses just to have some fun.
