Good: Played 18 yesterday with a buddy and won by 14 strokes. Didn't need to throw a midrange shot the entire round.

Bad: Had to putt more than 18 times.

Ugly: Letting a group of 3 play through (they were faster in the first loop) and then they started filming their shots and I got stuck behind them.

The Good: I set a personal best -2 at tocobaga last night

The Bad: If I eliminated the consecutive bogey, double, and then bogey again - my six birdies would have smoked the course.

The Ugly: Kenny B. was -3 thru the front nine and finished up at +3. The upside Ken is that you were 6 strokes lower than your Handi!!

Hmmm...I'm gonna guess it was on 5-7. Great round though.

Good: After finishing 4/8 in Rec in my first tournament three weeks ago I placed 8/21 in Intermediate in my second one today, albeit on a course that I feel really plays to my strengths. Very few mistakes though, I played my game and got it done.

Bad: Felt like I should have had two fewer strokes overall, missed a couple great chances to gain a stroke. Also, the second round was from the shorts and though I played well enough to hold off all but one player behind me and pass three others that were ahead my poor accuracy on drives was really exposed (and I expected it to be, I liked my chances better against the competition in the long pad round) and kept me from having the frequency of birdie opps that others did.

Good: 58, then 56 on a course that is a 53 SSA on only my 5th and 6th rounds back from a 2 yr break.

Bad: 2 chain outs on great putts.

Ugly: 3 putted twice in those rounds... from 30 ft.

Good: Had great weather today. Was throwing a GREAT game, until...

Bad: After putting on hole 12 and heading to 13, my GF says "Wow, you're having the best game I've ever seen you play." :shock: Bad juju. She essentially "niced" the rest of my round. :cry:

Ugly: Some of the shots that followed the harsh jinxing.

More Good: Started another round on the front 9 to make myself feel better. Mostly recovered from the hex placed on last game.

Good: Got to take a couple of newbies to the course today, and enjoyed teaching disc golf and playing some good rounds. My drives were also great.

Bad: For some reason my second shots were terrible today. It sucked after a good drive to blow my second shot.

Ugly: Shot a 62 on a course that is very easy to par.

Congrats Jim!! The best part was you didn't have to enter an "ugly"!! Did they have a Rec division? Just curious...

Good: Played a few rounds with friends home from school for the weekend.

Great: Won all the rounds and set a new course record at the home course by 2 strokes. (-5)

Bad: Didn't birdie holes 1 or 2 and I normally do.

Ugly: Had a bogie.

Awesome: Had enough self control to lay it up on 9 and take the 3 to assure myself -4. Ended up crashing into the basket and staying parked to go -5.

Ding...ding...ding...we have a winner. Tell him what he's won jonny.
Well Bob, Unicedmeman, you have on the way, a box of seriously sweet wizards.

Sorry Dave...it wasn't the one I got from you though. The domey opaque navy blue one I got at PIAS is unlike any of my other SS's. It is a bit beefier than the others and will hold a hard snapped hyzer and not turn over. The green one I got from you has a bit too much turn for this shot.
