Bag Since Last Update (4 rounds):

1x Polecat (R-Pro)- 1 throw.
3x Omega (DT, Super Soft, & Gummy Quantum)- 135 total throws (114 putts).
2x Pig (R-Pro & Factory Store Pro)- 22 throws.
4x Roc (DX, KC Pro, & Star)- 3 throws.
2x JLS (no run MJLS & 1.3 Sirius)- 9 throws.
4x OLF (1.1 MOLF, 1.2 SOLF, & 1.1 SOLF)- 10 throws.
3x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 20 throws.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 10 throws.

I've been playing well for the most part, with the exception of my last round out on Monday. My first round over par for the year, one where I was off to a solid start through the first ten holes. I'm needing to trust my Rocs more than I do, despite pulling the Sentinels I am still barely throwing them. Aviary Fools was cancelled due to corona, local league has suspended all events too. Looks like I'll be playing a decent amount of solo rounds to keep my sanity and will be leaning more on the Rocs in this casual setting.

This will likely be my last update for a while after the PDGA announcement. I bought some marking paint for the back yard, to mark distances for JYLY. I'm gonna go pretty hard with putting and upshot practice since we aren't supposed to play rounds anymore, luckily the yard is fairly sizable. I may wind up grabbing some rope and making a 10 meter portion to attach to the base of my basket to boot, before the inevitable shelter in place order. Stay safe everyone.

Bag Since Last Update (2 rounds):

1x Polecat (XT)- 0 throws.
3x Omega (1.2 DT, no run Super Soft, & 1.1 Sirius)- 69 total throws (55 putts).
2x Pig (R-Pro & Factory Store Pro)- 12 throws.
4x Roc (DX, KC Pro, & Champion)- 5 throws. Full disclosure, I bought a Quantum Taurus to use as a Champ Roc equivalent. I should have done this sooner, as it is a great substitute for a beefy roc. I don't feel like its much different than a USDGC roc would be, and available for much cheaper to boot. So I'm slightly cheating calling this a Roc, since it is really a RocX, but whatever.
2x JLS (no run MJLS & 1.3 Sirius)- 4 throws.
3x OLF (1.1 MOLF, 1.2 SOLF, & 1.1 SOLF)- 4 throws.
3x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 7 throws.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 6 throws.

The stay at home order was lifted on Monday here in Colorado, so I'm back to playing rounds with a friend. One new piece of essential equipment is a bottle of isopropyl alcohol, will have to grab more to keep my hands and discs disinfected. Other than that, the only change is that I added a Quantum Taurus, which I am trying to figure out as my most OS Roc. I like how it has the same feeling in the hand as a Roc, and the added stability will be nice to have. Time will tell if I will commit to the Taurus as part of my lineup. The extra putting practice and field work sessions have really paid dividends, as I'm way more comfortable throwing BH anhyzers than ever before. If anything my month off from playing has really been a benefit, and I'll finally commit to a regular practice regimen to keep my skills sharp.

Bag Since Last Update (3 rounds):

1x Polecat (XT)- 1 throw. I barely use my Polecat anymore, but it bails me out of some seriously janky lies.
3x Omega (1.2 DT, no run Super Soft, & 1.1 Sirius)- 94 total throws (84 putts). The first run Sirius has been a great replacement for my old gummy Q-mega. This one has a lower shoulder, which I prefer. The plastic is a little slick but the flight is great and it has slotted right in where the old one left off.
2x Pig (R-Pro)- 30 throws. The newest Pig in my bag is one of the most stable Pigs that I've bought in quite a while. I'm really pleased with it and am tempted to bag a third in between that one and my beat Pig I used for approach shots. I hope the new one retain this stability for quite some time.
4x Roc (DX, Glow KC Pro, & Quantum Taurus)- 7 throws. I was tempted to get a couple of the 2020 USDGC Champ Roc throwers, but others have said there is minimal difference between Champ Rocs and the Taurus. Still using the Taurus as a Champ Roc equivalent and really enjoying it. I hit cage on an ace run on Saturday, I'm starting to really dial the Taurus in and have another on the way from Marshall Street.
3x JLS (no run MJLS, Lunar QJ, & 1.3 Sirius)- 7 throws. I need more flippy MJLS, they are money woods discs. Anyone reading this with extra should shoot me a PM, I'll give them a good home.
3x OLF (1.2 MOLF, 1.3 MOLF, & 1.1 SOLF)- 12 throws. I switched up my OLFs for ****s and giggles recently. I have so many that I may as well let more of them get some airtime.
3x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 8 throws. These are the same three that have been in my bag all season. My most beat up '18 Sexton is easily my favorite driver in the bag. It has beaten into perfection, retaining all the HSS, but with significantly less LSS than my other Sexton. The flat top pearly is there for beef.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 6 throws. I'm getting some extra distance with these compared to the beginning of the year. I feel like I'm putting less effort into throws that are travelling just as far if not farther than max effort shots from January.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cumulative stats since start of 2020 (omitting 12 Sentinel throws):

1.Pig- 254 throws. 30.68% of throws
2.Omega- 149 throws & 884 putts (1126 total). 18.00% of throws
3.Firebird- 143 throws. 17.27% of throws
4.OLF- 85 throws. 10.27% of throws
5.Xcal- 61 throws. 7.37% of throws
t6.Roc- 58 throws. 7.00% of throws
t6.JLS- 58 throws. 7.00% of throws
8.Polecat- 23 throws. 2.78% of throws
________________
(828 throws/884 putts= 1712 total)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Omegas, Pigs, and Firebirds make up almost 2/3 of my total shots this year (65.95%). Most of my upshots are with one of these three molds. All of my bagged molds get thrown both FH and BH interchangeably although a couple molds are more specialized (Rocs are predominantly BH, Firebirds mostly for FH). Normally I would pull a mold that I throw as little as the Polecat, but I do not see myself dropping it anytime soon. I'm confident that the Polecat has saved me strokes the majority of the time that I have used it this year, even if it has been less than one throw per round. One goal for the next few months is that I'd like to work towards replacing some of my FH Pig shots with BH Roc shots now that I'm more confident in them. This will have the added benefit of allowing me to beat in some DX Rocs. I could definitely use a few more flippy Rocs since most of mine are not US enough at altitude.

love the stats, it is an interesting way to look at what in your bag is actually doing the work. how do you keep track of this? notebook during the round, or do you just write it all down afterwards?

I have kept a log of my rounds for the past year and a half, writing down the discs I used in a notebook once I get home. It's pretty easy to remember all your shots unless you play 3+ rounds in a day. From there you can make an Excel file to tally up the percentages, or if you are like me and have insomnia do it by hand in the wee hours of the night.

Bag Since Last Update (3 rounds):

1x Polecat (XT)- 3 throws.
3x Omega (1.2 DT, no run Super Soft, & 1.1 Sirius)- 96 total throws (79 putts).
2x Pig (R-Pro)- 22 throws.
4x Roc (DX, Glow KC Pro, & Quantum Taurus)- 12 throws.
3x JLS (no run MJLS, Lunar QJ, & 1.3 Sirius)- 4 throws.
3x OLF (1.2 MOLF, 1.3 MOLF, & 1.1 SOLF)- 4 throws.
3x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 2 throws.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 3 throws. I was mistaken in my last update saying that I throw every mold BH and FH. I pretty much never throw the Xcals BH in a round, only during field work. I can only remember throwing an Xcal off the tee BH once all year.

Played a couple rounds this weekend at the local short course, Cumberland Green, which always skews the numbers towards my slower discs. This is a great course to get some practice with mids and putters, you can easily play a couple solo rounds in less than an hour and a half. In both rounds there I only threw a driver 3 times (2 JLS and 1 OLF). I may not even bring any drivers with me next time I go down there, I should be able to reach circle 2 at worst on every hole with a Roc or putter.

Bag Since Last Update (1 round):

1x Polecat (XT)- 0 throws.
3x Omega (1.2 DT, no run Super Soft, & 1.1 Sirius)- 35 total throws (27 putts).
2x Pig (R-Pro)- 6 throws.
4x Roc (DX, Glow KC Pro, & Quantum Taurus)- 1 throw.
2x JLS (no run MJLS & Lunar QJ)- 1 throw.
3x OLF (1.2 MOLF, 1.3 MOLF, & 1.1 SOLF)- 3 throws.
3x Firebird (Champion & Color Glow Champ)- 4 throws.
1x Hades (ESP)- 2 throws. Experimenting with Pablo's new jam.
2x Xcal (PFN Star)- 3 throws.

Wound up buying 3 Hades on a whim, since I had some money from graduation burning a hole in my pocket. I bought them with the intention of giving two away to my buddies and keeping one for myself to try out. I haven't bought anything that's not manufactured by Innova in about a couple years, so I figured what the hell. Got in a round at Widefield earlier today to give them a test run, and was pretty impressed with the 10ish throws I had with them. I made sure to throw some second shots with them on plenty of holes and I feel like the mold will end up making the bag as my BH distance driver. Its a fast mold with good glide and decently US, but not overly flippy. They are flying like a longer version of my beat Pro Wraith I used to bag last year. I may have to get a couple more, since two are promised to friends at the moment (or just tell em I'll buy them a case of beer and keep the other Hades for myself).
