So, it’s 2015.  Another year starts, another season of holidays ends.  A lot of us end our years in the same way.  We overindulge, eat too much, stop going to the gym (if we were even going in the first place), and otherwise slip into what we know is bad behavior simply because “things are … Read more

10 Pieces of Disc Golf Advice I Wish I Had Listened To

Life Can Be Cruel

One of life’s cruel tricks is that the tools and perspective you need to make the most of life often don’t come to you until well after you need them.  How many times have we said things like…  “If I could go back to high school knowing what I know now.” or “If I could go back to college knowing what I know now.” or “I wish I could go back and date that person again knowing what I know now.”  It seems like we are never fully equipped with the knowledge we need at the time we actually need it.

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

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

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
