Made it to Clearwater! I played the long tees at Cliff Stevens and then Coachman. I got very few birdies, but upshots were good, so I only had a few bogeys after going OB. I lost 2 discs at Cliff, and the sad thing is that it could have been worse! But I had plenty of fun. As far as my game goes, the forehand was a little off today, I had a couple of embarrassingly bad backhand grip-locks, and my 20 to 45 foot putting game is atrocious!

Yesterday played Almon Park w my wife, and she threw like a madwoman!! So proud of her for parring half the course and almost having a couple of birdies as well. Shes also throwing Rocs well over 200 feet nowadays!

As for me I took a two under, which I have no conplaints about. Could've had a few more twos; the last three holes in a row left me with 45-50 foot putts, the first and last which hit outside chains and the middle one I hit the cage. Even though they werent makes, I am happy to consistently hit metal so much. Now for some fine tuning.

Also today got to meet up with a good friend who I havent seen in over a year, and holy crap he is just as into disc golf as I am now!!! He's even a PDGA member whereas I still am not, it was crazy. Threw Mountain Man's course, didnt keep score, just had fun tossing around.

It's not actually how I played today, but how I played at league Monday. The league boss was kind of slacking this week and didn't get the scores posted until today. I knew I came in 2nd Monday night, but the big news was that I moved up to first place from 5th! I've never been in 1st place in anything, but to be there in my first singles league at almost 63 years old feels really good! I love this sport!

Pretty well, considering I am sleep-deprived from watching four dogs. Rocked out at VisionQuest for two rounds, shot a 58 and a 57. I need sleep now.

Played a round with a co-worker. Very windy day. Did not use good form at all. My co-worker threw his new favorite disc (crave) into the water and used my golden retriever to get it, he was amazed at how it worked so well. Then he threw it in again on another hole, retrieved a second time. He threw a Vulcan in on another hole, retrieved a third time.

Get to hole 18 he has me by 1... that is how I played, awful...
I have a great drive, he comes up short, he approaches and parks it. Now I had to make a 45 footer to tie. Jump putt, just miss the basket... 5 feet behind is a sheer 8 foot drop into murky water.
A new fossil wizard goes in... luckily we retrieved it.

Saved ~$70 that day, good day but bad play.

Haven't played yet...it is currently 94, with 45% humidity ( that is low for us BTW ) and the real feel is supposed to be 103, !

This is not very motivating to go throw some Frisbees .

Two rounds this morning. First by myself, started bad with an early bogey followed by a double then fought back with a lot of two-putt pars and finished 1 under.
2nd round hooked up with a couple guys and threw a round of the beast 666. 6 birdies, 6 pars and 6 bogies.
Even isn't bad for me on this course but weird way to get there.

Not very well. Putted poorly and threw poorly for the first 9. Remembered to be smooth which fixed things, and drove/approached well but still putted poorly on the back 9. Had a jaw drop moment on number 3 at cp adams, just crushed a turnover and was maybe 140' out with a clear run at the basket. That drive just didn't want to come out of the sky, definitely my farthest in a long time. I should've ran it to try for an unheard of (amongst us mortals) deuce but I couldn't muster the courage. I threw an upshot with my lid and called it a day.

Played a tight round at Seneca Creek today with a buddy. Shot a +2...played 1-9 then hit holes 19-27. Snagged a few birdies and had some nasty tie ups with some trees that led to a couple bogies. My drives were really zoned in today. Shot some hyzer-flips with my Valks, some laser shots with the Mamba, and some extra boogie shots with my Lat64 Bolt. My Stingrays, Rocs, and Mako really stepped up today and weaved some sweet lines through the trees. A really fun round out there. Highlights for me: nailed a 50 foot putt on hole 3 for the bird. Drive with my Valk on 22 was 3 feet from the basket. And drive on hole 6 with my DX Valk was right down the tunnel 50 feet from the basket. Zoned in was the theme today!
