Default 2022 Disc Goals

Happy New Year to all you "Beautiful F*ing People"! (Long Post Warning )

Thanks to many of you this has been a great year of disc golf for both my son and I. I have learned so much from you all and I greatly appreciate it. So for that, I am really glad to have found such a great group of people.

When I have asked a question I never expected some of my posts to take such a solid hold and to get so many additional conversations started. I have found that everyone answers honestly and with diplomacy which I greatly appreciate.

2021 was a crappy year for me as it seemed to be for many of you as well. But, thank God we have disc golf to make up for the general feeling of being in a really bad episode of "The Poop Show!"

I have a few goals for 2022 that I thought I would share with you all.

1. Keep having fun and not stress every time I play! I want to play for fun, not rankings.
2. Keep getting rounds in with my son! He is still super stoked to play every chance we get.
3. Learn to build a better throwing form! (both backhand and forehand)
4. Meet more cool people on the course to shoot a round or three with!
5. Travel and experience lots of new courses.
6. Get better at the courses I already play.
7. Control my disc buying addiction! (Yeah right!)

And one question:

What are your disc golf goals for 2022?

1. Continue to have fun.
As long as it doesn't affect #1
2. Throw better - not faster or farther...better = more consistent
3. Get my PDGA rating above 700

Suck less than last year, win some stuff (WVTI in particular), run some stuff (Silver Series at Lake Marshall is the biggie), design some stuff (at least 5 courses), build some stuff. Stay healthy.

1. Stay healthy
2. Shoot par on the layouts I play at my 2 most frequently played 18 hole courses.
3. 350 foot golf shots
4. Get my first ace.
5. Play new courses.

I'm still undecided if I want to play tournaments.

1. Stay healthy (nothing else matters without this)
2. Have fun
3. Keep playing at a solid level (I'll be 58 in May so I accept that there will be some degradation)
4. Play 10 new courses in 3 new states
5. Attend 2 pro tournaments

Sell off / donate most of my discs. Some boxes have not been opened in years now. All putters stay for games.
Start being sociable and play in with unknowns found on course. That used to be a fun thing that slipped away.
Go throw with the ‘wife’ and her bestie sometimes.
Offer guests to play catch more.

I’ve decided to stop playing tournaments. They are expensive, slow, the weather is always awful and I just don’t find myself enjoying them. I’m much happier walking around the corner to my local course at 7am (or whenever I feel like it) and just playing by myself or with my wife.

I’ll play the odd social day with my club, but no more tournaments for me.

1) actually get out and play this year.stopped playing around the start of covid and avoided the influx on courses.
2) take my two oldest boys (3 and 5) out to play.
3) continue to sell off my collection and make a nice profit to an inflated market. Old discs have single handedly funded my new hobby, road cycling and MTN biking, and let to greater physical health. Thank you old discs and people with disposable income!
