good: I have been practicing my flick again after becoming a backhand savant and it is getting back to where it was.

better: going to follow the USDGC lead card on sat.

Ugly: My dog knocked a bowl out of my hand this morning and it shattered. One of the shards ripped a pretty big hole in my big toe and I probably should've gotten stitches but went with a lot of butterfly bandages. I need it to heal quickly because I play my only PDGA next weekend.

Good: I have enough of a name at my local course that people I've never met have heard of me.

Bad: People have given my number out to random strangers.

Ugly: I have a friendly competitive round with a golfer that's new in town who's heard I'm competitive from more than one group he's played with. And thanks to 70+ hour work weeks for the past couple months I'm severely out of practice.

Good: Shot my best round ever at Taylor yesterday, 57. That's one better than my best there and two better than my best on a non all-shorts pin layout.

Bad: Missed two putts

Ugly: Followed it up with a hideous round today, a 67 where 6-7 of the strokes were from missing putts from 10-25 feet. Didn't make a single one from farther than about 8 feet.

Great: After doing a bunch of putting and driving practice, played another round and shot a 55. Go figure.

good: while slacking off at work, tossing a few behind the building last night I was throwing my fairway drivers so clean and consistent. 5 laser straight hyzerflipped jls in a row landing within 5 feet of each other. I pulled out the r-pro boss I have been messing with and crushed it 6 feet high and easily my longest throw on flat ground. It felt awesome

bad: while slacking off at work, tossing a few behind the building today I was either torquing everything over into a roller or skying it into a nose up stall.

awesome: while slacking off at work, tossing a few behind the building today, I found my long lost qjls in a bush. It was my first jls and I loved it until I lost it 6 months ago and had no idea where.

ugly: I work too much and haven't played a round in 3 weeks.

The good: I got to go to usdgc from thurs to sat.

The Better: I got to see every pro play including lead card where Locastro pulled out the upset.

The Even Better: I was one of the first 6 people in line for the spectator roc's

The Still I Can't Believe It Gets Better: I made $300 in one hour selling two of the discs I purchased

The This Is Getting Ridiculous: I Shot A 58 on Spectator Day!!!

(just kidding on the last one, it wasn't a 58, it was a 68).

No bad, No Ugly whatsoever... This was one of the coolest weekends of my DG life.

The good: Shot my best round in months(9 down at riverpark) and even hit chains on seven. My driving was solid, the weather was perfect and I was nailin puts like a deity.
The bad: Through one drive nose up making the par a little more difficult?
The ugly: I have no friends.

Ugly: Shot a +10 the first round of the C-Tier I played this weekend, worst tournament round I've shot possibly ever.

Not so ugly: Was tied for 2nd in the division.

Uglier: 5 shots out of the lead after the first round.

Ugliest: Shot a +4 the second round, but still not a good round.

Not so bad: Managed to hang onto second place.

I wouldn't fret your performance too much. From the sounds of things, the same factors that led you to shoot an ugly round effected every one else as well.

Good: After playing for 6 years, I have finally picked up a roc(2 days ago) and started to learn how to throw it.
Better: Played a quick round at my local 9 holer yesterday with Roc's as my mainstay for mid's and shot a -6.
Best: I 3'ed the 693 foot hole with two roc shots and a 10 foot putt.
Bestest: Learning to throw the roc has made my drivers go further too. I am now focusing on a smooth hit and getting more rotation on the disc with the same speed I had before. Disc's are flying longer. Need some more time to work on this...but things are looking good.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

Good - We've had some great weather this november for twilight/glow golf and i've been able to get in a lot of rounds lately.

Better - I've been getting my mid range/approach game dialed lately, using mids for more drives and touch approaches has been working well.

Best - Took 16 skins tonight. 8)


and Bad - I'm still a terrible putter. :?

ugly - On my way to Anderson park course in Chapel Hill, NC yesterday, I had a strong premonition about acing hole 1. It's a steady downhill slope, about 240, trees on both sides of the fairway. I think I could get a very straight flight on a downhill throw like that; all I have to do it throw it in the right direction... In my fantasy, I ace #1, then turn around and walk from the tee back to my car and drive away, leaving the disc in the basket. Then comes reality: I hit the hole # 1 sign, 15 feet from the tee.

bad - My drives didn't get much better after that. I'm hitting trees on the majority of my drives.

good - I made a few long shots, well beyond what I would call putting range, 50-100 feet

The good: it's been a mild winter

The bad: have not played DG in 4 months

The ugly: my game in general is going to be scary when I play again.
