Work as always, and more specifically weather, haven't been cooperating with me at all lately. But I think you all might've inspired my to get my first one in tomorrow. Maybe. It's supposed to be a high of 6 so we'll see. My next day off is supposed to have a high of 3 so...better of 2 evils maybe.

Shot a couple strokes better than my rating for my first round of 2022, at Josh & Cheryl T's Cedar Grove course, during a rated, league round, so ...a nice start. And yep, soupy ground and flurries here in the midwest, temps at 38.

First tournament of 2022. First two days, I played well enough to not be DFL. But today it was a bit rough and the guy I was beating really played better. But I had loads of fun. Now to see what my rating looks like.

Played my first round of 2022 at Etowah and shot well -10. The ground was more or less soup and it was very slippery but still very pretty out there. Saw a ton of geese and some huge woodpeckers.

That's gotta be a tough course to play in wet conditions. Lots of steep slopes, and I imagine stand and deliver type shots. Very fun course though. -10 under is damned good.

Not the easiest when wet. 1-7 have a ton of standing water off the fairway and some fast moving casual water that isn’t usually present. Going up and down the hills wasn’t too bad except for that steep decline on 11, that’s dicey.

It’s funny, my score was good but I didn’t feel that great and didn’t realize it was relatively hot until I got to 18.

Getting old sucks, my bionic limbs hurt all the time lol.

Summer here in Melbourne, Australia. Played my first round of 2022 at the Melbourne Disc Golf “Royal Family” social day, at the temporary 9 hole course they have put in at Royal Park, just north of the Melbourne CBD, with a view to becoming permanent. It was an 18 hole event, playing the same nine twice. Hot and humid day.

Nice mix of open and wooded holes. I played blind and shot -2. My usual putting performance meant I left about 4 strokes out on the course. I’ve been putting with Bergs lately to try and force myself to putt “through the chains” and not rely on glide. Work in progress.

Happy new year to all.

On the first day of the new year, I played a brand new course! Tom Bennett DGC in Bradenton FL. The weather was rough, high around 80, but it was kind of windy. Most of us survived the round wearing t-shirts and shorts. We also threw a round at the nearby 9 hole course Heritage Harbour. Happy New Year Discers!

Coming soon to a post near you. Aka I haven't been out since October and that one was rough. I may throw my first round and first rated round on or around February 5th. If we get a warm weekend day it's possible it may be sooner. Good to read others comments. I'll be going back to my ice fishing hole now.

Got out on Sunday for Random Dubs at Plantation Ruins. I think we had 19 players...? Which was nice, because it had rained and rained through the night, and continued right up to tee-time at 10:15 or so. But the rain held off the remainder of the day.

Partner and tied for 1st at -14; the winner after 3-hole playoff was Lone Wolf, which is as it should be. Super-fun day. Yes, I was in shorts, and very comfortable.

Three of us then went to Eastway for a capper. I ended up at +4 from the long tees. Not bad, but definitley left a couple out there.
