Other Info/Notes:
I threw my first disc out on Dry Creek Parkway DGC in Cheyenne, Wyoming back in 1998. I threw a couple of discs with a friend who was just getting into the sport, and he convinced me to buy my own disc. Being a poor high school kid, I invested my 10.99 and got a whopping 12 holes out of it. Not that it mattered much; I was consistently driving it backhand about 150 feet with a huge hook. I still remember the disc disappearing into the shrubbery by the highway, and spending an hour in the dried up creek bed before getting thoroughly pissed at my lost investment in a sport I sucked at. I vowed to just spend my days on a ball golf course instead.

Fast forward to the spring of 2004, my brother-in-law moved to town and asked me one night if I "Frisbee golfed." I told him once, and I wasn't that good, but since I was newly married in a new town and little money to spend on ball golf - I took him up on his offer to head back out to a course. Stopping at Academy Sports, I made a new investment in a DX Leopard and an Epic driver, not knowing if either was any good.

We headed down to Anges Moffit Park in Houston and began to new experiment. The Leopard would roll forever and I must have spent hours trying to gently bend the Epic to form as the instructions said on the package. It all came together one day when I gave up the backhand for an "out of desperation" sidearm throw. Stars aligned and the Epic snapped out of my fingers going right before a gentle fade left in what I thought was the most beautiful S curve I'd ever seen. I was hooked.

We managed to suck my brother and his wife into playing with us, and what followed were ample days of Epic = Tree = bend again forever before hitting more trees. I finally threw it into the swampy area at Bear Branch Park in the Woodlands on number 11 - yes it was that bad. I never found it, but instead found an unmarked candy XL that magically transformed my game. I don't think I lost a round in my little group for about six full months of constant play. Life was good.

Then came the elbow aches, the shoulder issues, and finally a fateful day at Spring Valley DGC and the cursed tree on hole #2 that I connected with, bouncing my XL into the brown nasty water. After that, it just wasn't the same, and sometime a bit after the Oak Meadows grand opening tournament in late 06'- I just stopped playing. I got a new job that took up most of my time, and had a kid. Fortunately, my brother really got into the sport and convinced me to check out this site in November and even play in a Birdshot tournament at Terramont Park in December of 2008. We both signed up in the novice division, and I ended up winning it by three shots. The fire was officially rekindled, and as they say - the rest is history.
