Playing disc golf is fun. Talking about it isn't as fun.

Let's go throw.

Amen brother.

Didn't get a chance to play today, but when out on the practice field to test out the FDs vs Teebirds. FD's are very neutral with less fade than the Teebirds. Nice discs. If I wasn't so utterly devoted, I might consider switching. Right now I'm thinking of using the s-line FD as an in-between disc to compliment a champ Teebird and a River.

Also, on Saturday I was playing a round. Hole #2, 2nd shot, I break out my brand new Harp for a forehand hyzer approach about 175' on a tightly wooded fairway. I tried threading the needle but hit a close-by tree. The Harp, on it's first throw ever, tacoed. I was pretty bummed as it defnitely warped. By today it still retains the warp, but flies fairly well. That will teach me to throw soft plastic.

So many little adventures. Every day I learn something new. I love this sport.

Yeah man you speak the truth. I've been playing for nearly 16 years and I'm still learning new stuff everyday. I love that I'm still able to gain distance too as I age. Maybe by the time I'm 40 I'll be able to hit 500ft. :D

How old are you Uncle? I am 33 and am still gaining incrementally each year. I don't know that my total distance goes up much, but my golf distance is approaching my max distance more and more, which I like. And then I read horror stories about popped tendons/ torn cuffs, ets. I will continue to eat it up for as long as possible. Throwing the ever loving crap out of something is a pretty damn good stress reliever as well.

This is very true, I use to throw during my lunch breaks just about every day. I transferred to downtown MKE and can't do that anymore. sad face

I agree about the stress part.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

DGR in da house. Or was. Apparently smigles is sensitive to snoring so he changed address from the European Championships dormitory room that for a while was inhabited among others by 3 DGR members, PDGAEurope director and a living legend Derek Robins. Videos of the event will follow later. I have over 50 gigs of footage and the net here does not handle sending it to lcgm8. Got a fairway ace from Juho Parviainen on film on round 3 for an eagle 2 on hole 13. Off the top of my head it is a 194 m long hole.
