I was out there for the first time in Summer 2007 for the WV Am Championships -- it was my first disc golf tourney after a four-year hiatus away from the sport (played a lot of Ultimate, tore an ACL, came back to disc golf). Anyway, I showed up morning-of with zero time for warm-up and no idea about the courses. I started the tourney with a triple-putt four, a six, a six, a six, a four, and was sitting there five holes in and eleven strokes over par... I decided to just sit back and enjoy the beautiful courses since I thought I'd iced myself out of contention.
49 holes later, I found myself on the top card for the final 10-hole playoff, and ended up winning Advanced with a big gallery following around -- it was am amazing tourney. It was also the first time I can ever remember playing a whole tourney and not taking a single two the entire time. It was just crazy to win Advanced with ZERO birdies across 64 holes of golf. Never had played courses quite like that, and will always remember the incredible challenge.
Can't wait to get back to Paw Paw. See you all out there. 69 hours and counting until teeoff!!!
