Been playing a year now and just posted my best game EVER on any course. Playing Paschal Park short tees I shot a 901 rated round according to the DGCR SSE. I am usually around the low to mid 800s.

A week or so ago I beat my previous best at this park by scoring -2 and today I was -6!! Today I had six deuces (one of which was an eagle on a generous par 4), a birdie three, nine pars and only two bogies. My drives and upshots were reasonably controlled for a change. I left a couple or three strokes behind on putts that almost went in (I was low and hit the lip of the cage on the ones I missed).

My son was playing good too and finished even par. What a great day. The weather was a bonus (we were playing in tee shirts).

Played Walden Park in Walnut Creek today at lunch. Parred every hole this time which was a first on this particular course for me. I tried a slightly different power grip on my drives today. I kinda "choked up" for lack of a better term, meaning I seated the disc deeper into the seam of my hand and sort of moved my thumb up towards the edge of the disc in order to get more of a nose down angle. This seemed to have worked because my drives were a lot straighter, lower, and slightly longer. Weird how just a slight adjustment can make a huge difference...

Two rounds at the Quarry...shorts first round, -5...which is OK...longs second round...started raining pretty good on hole 3 and ended up +6...which sucks. Trees just kept jumping out in front of my disc.

played a round of ript with a fellow dgcr member today. Forgot how hard it is not to yell at your disc after a bad shot. Just about walked off the course after that card was played.
