You Can’t Control Your Score

The second round on Sunday started at 1:40.  The first round had gone really well.  For the first time in recent memory, I was going into the second round in the lead.  The guys in advanced masters are always great competition.  Sunday was no different.  That made things that much more exciting for me.  I … Read more

Am Worlds, The Best and Worst Disc Golf I’ve Ever Played

With the Am Worlds disc golf tournament kicking off in Minnesota this week, I thought it only appropriate that I share my own Am Worlds experience. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”  Nothing better describes my participation in the 2007 Am Worlds in Milwaukee, WI.  Worlds is something everyone … Read more

Do You Have the Heart of a Champion?

We weren’t even out of the car when I heard the question I already knew was coming. “$1 skins?” “Sure” I replied. “Love playing with you, you’re always willing to donate.” “Yeah, yeah, yeah.  One of these days I’ll get my money back.” Almost all of my disc golf friends are better than me.  Most … Read more

And the Farthest Flying Disc Golf Disc Is……

Gimme Some D!

Distance. It’s the holy grail for most disc golfers.  We chase it like we chased the opposite sex when we hit puberty.  We think about distance. We talk about distance. We post about distance online. We buy apps to validate our distance in the field. On the whole, it is a life long addiction that can never be satisfied. Hit the 300′ mark and we immediately seek 350′.

Why are you punching yourself in the face on the disc golf course?!?!

We are our own worst enemy. With all the negative voices coming from the news, our coworkers, our friends, and our families, the biggest negative voice in most of our lives lives right inside our own head.  This can be especially true on the disc golf course. A bunch of years back, I was a … Read more

How much fun was that putting practice?

I hated putting practice.  No, that’s not right, I despised and loathed putting practice.  The basket in my garage was more storage container than practice implement (it helps that I live 5 minutes from a course and a park that is perfectly set up for dg practice).  Standing there banging in a stack of putters … Read more
