When I'm having a particularly bad round I like to think of my score in terms of that par, that usually amuses me enough to stay sane.

I would definitely say Rockland has some tweeners. Hole 1, 4, 16, 14 are kinda miracle twos but unspectacular threes.

- Upcoming events -
Frozen Lotus on Saturday, gotta rep Fauquier disc golf, even if his course is in the same county but somehow like 40 minutes away

R'Ice Bowl III Sunday, I think Prince William golf course is actually closer to my house than the Frozen Lotus. Either way, definitely a gem of a course for being on a golf course, there are CARTS and they have a beer girl going along, what's not to like? I think my partner and I might be if not the two, two of the top throwing AMs in the NoVa dgc, so I'm hoping that will pay off haha.

Good luck in your Ice Bowls. Give the beer girl my regards.

Of those four holes 1,4 and 16 are tough par 3s. 14 is an excellent par 3. In my opinion, of course.

Blue tees are where I see more tweeners: holes 1,2,12,17 and 18.

Throw the trident in going over the top on 6? (If so it is having tea and crumpets with my X3.)

You beat me for the day.

... Kind of. I cleared the pond from the pad, but was short left, so hanging out in circle two of hole 9. I then momentarily forgot how thumbers work, and just threw the Trident directly into the pond from like 75' away trying to go over some bamboo. It was pretty dumb, but I'm sure it amused Hammer.

+6 to 933 rated, highest rating yet.
Been really happy with some staples in my bag, PA4's and Comets might be some of my favorite discs to throw ever.

Now if I could just get that Duck Golf albatross off my neck. I'd like to get to 950 rated or so, I think that's a decent attainable goal for this year.

Side note; after throwing a lot of hard shots this past weekend, my whole right index/pointer finger is swollen and a little sore. I can't tell if it's due to that being my release point or what, but it's definitely due to backhands. Hopefully it's a non-issue moving forward, but I'm taking some NSAIDs and icing it this week.

Oh and I signed up for the Seneca Creek Soiree MA1, Loriella Challenge MA1 and will sign up for the Sherando Spartan MA1 tomorrow.
Pretty excited about all of those tournaments.

Cold windy 18 at Giles long 2 long, shot a 72, which, while isn't great, is somehow roughly 930-940 rated so I can't complain too much for a casual day.
3 Wraiths
Trident
3 F2s
2 dx Rocs
ESP Comet
Medium Harp
400g PA4
A1
PA3's

Also finally found my first ever Trident!! I am so happy about it, I lost this sucker 4 years ago and finally found it today! Somehow it's just as stable as the day I lost it.
