I wish, I'd love to throw only Wraiths, but that extra 15-20' from D1s is addicting. There's a couple reasons;

I actually tested positive on an IGg for Lyme and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. So I'm taking antibiotics for that now and it's making my whole body sore, so I'm down on power.

I pretty much only have one tournament left in 2020, and it's at Rockland so I only need 1-2 drivers, and I like throwing random stuff so it's fun to mess with the bag from time to time.

Same thing with the KC/DX Rocs that have snuck in, they're fun to throw, and it keeps me from ever losing my precious multi-year old M2.

So sorry to hear! Hope you’re taking care of yourself and getting healthy. I know the disc down struggle, two years ago I partially tore my abdominal wall, wraiths kept me playing.

Now is about the time to start messing with stuff to see what makes it to next year, and preserve those old favorites. Plus it’s pretty fun!

2 rounds at Rockland practicing for the Cardinal next weekend

D1
Wraith
Starfire
F1
3x F2s
MX-3
2x comets
Breaker
2x PA4
4x PA3
Sonic
Stego

Shot a 56 first round and actually shot better on the back nine than the front 9 which is shocking. Second round didn't keep score and was pretty beat. Taking antibiotics for Lyme+Rocky Mountain spotted fever is giving me a lot of soreness and I could feel it in my legs and knees after one round.

In my opinion, lower scores are easier on the back nine.

Normally the stretch of 14-15-16 is where I'm gonna gain the most strokes, so my normal Rockland play is to birdie as much as I can through 10 and hang on. I've been playing those holes decently clean recently, it's been a nice change of pace.

I'd say birdies I hope to get are 3, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13. 17 is a toss up, though I did get it once last weekend. I've 2'd 12 once and had looks at it 3-4 times, but that's a hero drive.

My ideal game plan is: front nine 25. Three 2’s between holes 3, 5, 6, 8 and 9; a four on hole 7 and three’s otherwise
Back nine 24. Three two’s between holes 10, 11, 13, 17 and 18. The rest should be three’s.
These are the ideals and obviously, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Knock a stroke off of 2, 3, and 12 and you’re golden. Of course it’s easier said than done.
