Ugly: I still have two tournaments scheduled this month...
Good: Its never too late for field practice

You there! Warobert! throw less hard on open shots. You tend to jerk too hard (hehe) and get your arm in front when throwing hard.

The Good - Won the Long drive competition after Kingman's May Daze with a 525' Standstill throw.

Bad- Finished 6th of 11 in advanced after winning 4 of their last 5, and placing 2nd in the other.

Ugly - Made only one putt outside of 25' in the tourney, and then went on to make the first 4 putts in a row during the ring of fire from 33'. So much for making it when it counts...

Good: Played a casual local tournament. Pulled pork, smoked brisket, and killer mac 'n cheese between rounds. Won a 6-pack of Flying Dog porter for CTP, and placed 2nd in my division.

Bad: 2nd in rec division. :roll:

Ugly: The last hole. After playing consistently all afternoon I three-putted from about 80 unmolested feet. Afterwards I was strangely relieved to learn that I had lost by more than a stroke.

525’ from a standstill is beast mode. And Monocracy, you just made me hungry.

Going to do a double time today.

Good: Took 2nd at the Texas High School Championships shooting the low round of the tournament and also winning the long drive contest.
Good: Matt Ryan is trying to put Disc Golf into the High Schools and did a superb job running the event with an incredible support crew from Brownfield.

Bad: Missed several in the circle putts that I should have made that ultimately cost me.
Bad: There were several really good high school players from Texas and even within 45 minutes that were missing.

Ugly: After playing 3 holes in the first round that were relatively easy to par I had to OB's and was already 5+.
Ugly: Only 23 High Schoolers showed with only two full teams competing. That is down from the 40 some last year with several teams.

Good: Been working on my form a lot, so I decided to try out my Nuke for the first time. Rocked it HARD - so I must have been working well since I can now throw high speed discs well.

Bad: I discovered that I am incapable of driving a shot on a line between trees. I need need need to figure this out because this is hurting me bad.

Ugly: I lost 2 discs to the water. Thankfully, I have many Rocs, but the Valk is gone for good. Bought the Valk at Dick's, so I can always rebuy if I care - I prefer my Avenger SS anyways. :P (Trying to make an ugly situation good)

Good: if I added / weighted everything corrrectly, my last tourney should bump my rating over 1000!!!

Bad: heard from the TD of said event that the rounds won't be counted on tomorrow's ratings update...gotta wait until next month :(

Ugly: another month of anxiously blabbing to my wife about ratings when she could give a crap :D

Good: 2 good days of golf. Won the metcenter mini on Tuesday and my tag group at circle c today with a 59. Won by 14 strokes

Bad: despite the win I shot a 66 at MetC. Goal was a 60.

Ugly: can't putt outside 25ft. I don't practice outside the circle often and it shows

Good: Putted well today (except for 3 spitouts/cut-thrus)

Bad: my actually score for todays rounds. The fact that my money orion is now my flippy orion and I refuse to accept that.

ugly: threw something like 20 thumbers today and my shoulder really really hurts now. Hope it goes away by tomorrow.

Good - strung together pretty decent rounds at hornets nest in Charlotte NC. Avg'd 990.

Bad - got whooped by whiz! He shot lights out! Its actually not bad, he's nasty good.

Ugly - my back 9 the second round. Took a 24 on the back the first round and a 31 on the back the second round. Bah.

Good: got an invite to Deep Creek to play there.

Bad: playing two rounds with my shoulder hurting. Turns out I use a decent amount of shoulder in my putting and throwing.

Ugly: worst finish ever and I probably shouldn't have played today. probably gonna need to take a week off from DG.

Franky D. I just played 9 yesterday after taking two weeks off... felt really good on my shoulder and my drives are back. I don't know what I did but I really messed it (or my elbow... I'm not sure) up.
