Wisdom Wednesday – What Gets Measured…

Almost every one of us wants to improve at disc golf. I don’t know of any disc golfer who is 100% happy with their current skill set. Even Paul McBeth, the highest rated disc golfer in the history of the game, works daily to improve his disc golf skills.

Just the Tip – Give Yourself 10

At my home course, we have leagues on Wednesdays. I’m very happy to have Wednesdays off. This allows me to get there before they start and get some practice in.

Just the Tip – Ease Up Into the Wind

I don’t know about where you live, but it’s definitely spring here in Illinois.  One day it’s cold, the next it’s hot.  One day it’s calm, the next it windy.  This is the time of year when every day off is a crap shoot weather wise.  The forecast could change several times by the time I’m actually off work and …

Just the Tip – Practice With the Locals

As you know from any of my social media accounts, I’m here!!!  After months of anticipation and 9 hours of driving, I rolled into Emporia late Saturday night.  The place isn’t exactly hopping yet, but I am here a lot earlier than most plan to be here.  I have a good reason, though.  I hate playing courses blind. Over the …
