Default Summer Road Trip Report: 800 courses eclipsed, 5th place at Am Worlds

My wife and I left home from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on June 21st. I was at 721 courses played at the time we left. I hit #800 on July 22nd, just 32 days later. Then I had an incredible experience playing in the Amateur World Championships in York, Pennsylvania, from July 23-27 where I managed to take 5th place in MA1 out of 268 competitors. We made it back to Baton Rouge on Sunday evening, July 28th. Listed below is a log of my rounds from the trip:

Overall it was a wonderful summer. Thanks to my wife for allowing me to live my dream and for being with me every step of the way! We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel as much as we do. In addition to all of the disc golf, we also got to visit with friends and family, go to Cedar Point Amusement Park, visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame, check out the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, attend a Cleveland Indians baseball game, and have a fun day at Hershey Park.

If anyone has any questions about any of my experiences, please do not hesitate to ask.
