Good - Finally broke the 400' barrier. Got an SL out to 410' according to google earth.

Bad - Came real close to rolling my ankle about a dozen throws later. It's still fairly sore.

Good: I'm starting to trust my driving technique. Parked 1. hole at our local course for the first time:-)
Bad: still got a par after parking hole 1. Upshots mostly good for laughs.
Ugly: hit the basket straight on and 5 cm low 6 times, pin 2 times, top 1 time:-(

The Good: I won our Handicap this weekend shooting a personal best 51

The Bad: The 2 unnecessary bogey's prevented me from finishing under 50

The Ugly: I played from another person's lie because of a very similar disc. My actual lie parked the hole for a 6' birdie putt. Thankfully, this is a friendly group and we weren't double stroked for the infraction. With the 2 strokes and the fact that I should have had the birdie instead of my "bud", this could have been a 3 stroke swing!!

Good - Beat out some heavy competition at our last random doubles for the win. Had some great drives and solid putts.

Bad - The wife's super busy all week leaving me stuck at home to watch the kids all week which means no golfing this week. Maybe/hopefully on Wed. night if the stars align.

Ugly - The light's disappearing up here rapidly calling for earlier and earlier tee times, making it harder to squeeze in a round after work even if I could get out of the house. I play all through the winter, snow, ice and cold, but the lack of evening light really slows down the round frequency. :(

Ugly: tourney this weekend. :cry:

Good: My throw tinkering. I feel like I'm really ripping the piss out of the disc for the 1st time. Thank you Bradley :).

Better: My putting. I've been dropping putts from everywhere. This, coupled with some big, consistent drives has lead to some of the best golf I've played all year.

Best: The Orange Pro PD's I got in the mail. Super tasty.

Good: Shot +5, only one over my personal best at my home course today, that's also the best score I've had there when the pins aren't all in the shorts. I also did it entirely left-handed, meaning backhand only and not using my normal forehand/overhand tricks for tricky/high percentage approaches.

Bad: Although I didn't miss any putts I should absolutely make, my standards for makeable putts are getting higher and I felt I should have made at least one more of the longer ones than I did.

Ugly: Four of the six extra strokes I took were on holes that are birdie opportunities. One of the other strokes was on a horrible botched approach.

Good: Light's fading early, glow discs are coming out near the end of league rounds!

Bad: My glow magnet fades to dark like it's made from innova crap glow plastic

Ugly: At league I had 6 skip-off-the-rim deuce misses and finished at -1, taking the 3rd best tag on the card instead of the best
I threw Wizards before they were cool.

Good - Snuck in a full 18 at lunch yesterday shooting my PB for the course, -3. Took down random doubles last night with a solid partner for $20 a piece. Upshots and putts were dialed in yesterday.

Bad - Couple griplocked drives and some pain from a forehand drive with poor form.

Ugly - One drive ended up stuck about 30' up in a thick tree. Took about 20 min of tossing my water bottle up at it to free it up. The throw that freed the disc also managed to get the water bottle stuck in its place. Then I took my flask and managed to free up the water bottle with it after about 5 min. but no shit.... the flask stuck as the water bottle came down. :x Then I took the tree into my own hands and started shaking it hard which did indeed knock the flask down, but the tree wasn't done with me yet! On my way out from under the tree it managed one last attack on me leaving me with a nice 3 inch cut on my calf. :evil:

Great: Crushed my best score at Tocobaga by five strokes with a +4 at the handicap today, won first place. Both my birdies were on putts of at least 35 feet.

Bad: Started out +5 on the first three holes, missed two relatively easy putts.

Good: Played in my first PDGA tourney yesterday at my home course.

Bad: Played the WORST two rounds pretty much ever on this course. and finished +25 for 36 holes. Pretty embarrassing.

Ugly: It was 100 degrees, which led to the bad I'm sure. A 718' hole that I normally par or at worst bogey, I threw OB twice and scored a +5!!! Damn I was pissed at myself.

Good: Shot a personal best (51) at the Tocobaga Handi's on Saturday tying the low raw score of the day.

Bad: Took a horrible double bogey on hole 6

Ugly: with my -7 handicap (which will be coming down) I still missed 1st place by 1 stroke. Congrats Jim W.!!
