Just the Tip – It’s the Archer

You’ve done your research. You’ve gone to Facebook, DGCR, DGR, and You Tube. You’ve read the reviews on all the disc golf blogs. You’ve poured over the In Bounds flight guide. You’ve consulted Joe’s Flight Chart and the Marshall Street Flight Guide. You’ve asked your friends, you’ve called your neighbors. And now you are ready. It’s time to buy a …

Wisdom Wednesday – Be Content

I’m never going to be a professional disc golfer. There, I said it. I wish it was different, but it’s not. Hang on a sec while I go cry for a bit. I’ll be right back… You see, I’m supremely unathletic. I played bench in little league. I scored 2 points all season for my grade school basketball team. I …

Wisdom Wednesday – Those Who Understand, Teach

I like to play ball golf. I’m not sure where the idea started that you can’t play both disc and ball golf, but I don’t buy into that. I like disc golf a lot more, but I do enjoy getting out on a beautifully manicured golf course with friends and family that don’t play disc golf. The thing is, ball …

10 Steps to Making Better Decisions in Disc Golf

Basically you start the day with the ability to make a limited number of decisions well. Once you pass that number, your ability to make good, well thought out choices decreases with every decision.

Wisdom Wednesday – Confidence

Joe Montana knew a thing or two about confidence. You have to when you are face to face with┬ácharging 300 pound linebackers. It’s kind of important when bodily injury is a very possible result of your actions. That’s one thing about disc golf versus some other sports. No one is going to tackle us at full speed. When you reach …

Wisdom Wednesday – I’d Rather be Trusted

I was listening to a podcast on the way to work today and the point was made that there is a “trifecta” of interpersonal relationships. The goal should be to be liked, trusted, and respected. They then went on to talk about which of those was more important. If you are a parent, you already know the answer. To be …

A Disc Golf Rant

A big part of the reason I post positive motivational memes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram is that I constantly need to remind myself to be positive and motivated. I write posts about digging deep and doing your best┬áto try and inspire myself as much as I’m trying to inspire each of you. I truly believe that the best way …

Wisdom Wednesday – Get Uncomfortable

I’ve often heard and read the advice to do one thing each day that scares you. Get out of your comfort zone and do the things in life that make you uncomfortable. Force yourself to do things that are hard to do. When you hear interviews with ultra successful people, this is almost always a common theme. They are successful, …

Just the Tip – Learn to Laugh

It seems like every time I play in a tournament, I do something that is totally out of character. Something so dumb that I look back and can’t believe I actually did what I just did. I’m not sure why this happens, but it does. Here’s a short list: Telling my group we were playing the wrong hole so confidently …

Wisdom Wednesday – Prepare to Win

It’s true. With very few exceptions, everyone wants to win. In the heat of the battle, everyone exerts their will towards winning. So why doesn’t everyone win? Aside from the fact that there can be only one winner (and only one Highlander too, but that’s a totally different topic), very few people prepare to win. There are a lot of …
