Good: played deep creek tourney with Frank, beat him from the short pads, and took second in int

Bad: shot an absolutely atrocious round from the long tees (i cant shape lines with drivers apparently)

Ugly: even though I played decent golf, I had no chance at first place (he waxed the int field by like, 9 strokes)

The Good: Played my first tournament since I injured my throwing arm in April.
The Good: Got my first ever tournament Ace, won the Ace Pool solo w00t!
The Bad: Left too many birdies out on the course. I shoulda been better than 4 down for the tournament. But I got the Ace w00t!
The Ugly: nuffin!
w00t!

Well my back has been pretty awful since like the end of may. I shot like 10 rounds over 980 in a row and then my back died. My back has finally slowly been getting better and I have played without pain a few times now and my form is no where near where it was. Well today was the first time in months that I actually played somewhat near the level I was it. I birdied a hole over 400 feet for the first time in months and my putting stroke was back. I am still having a hard time with drivers slipping out early so I think my grip has gotten weaker, but it is getting closer. Today made me feel pretty good about my game again and hopefully I can get back to where I was at pain free.

Good: shot a 1004 rated round the first round to be in first

bad: had a couple of bad cut thrus, roll aways and one of those "the wind blows the disc out of the basket" putts to give me a much less impressive second round putting me in 2nd

ugly: playing in hurricane winds makes for a tiring round.

Good: Shot a 964
and 914 rated rounds at Pier Park this weekend.

Bad: Slept in too late and nearly missed my tee time.

Ugly: Shot a +9 as a result, no more drinking the night before a tourney.

Bonus Good: Won a super sweet handmade trophy signed by Val Jenkins for most improved round by shooting a -3 on the same setup later that day. Still managed to tie for 12 as well.

Good: Shot a PB, 971-rated 56 on Crystal Mountain's lower course Sunday. It was a three-way tie going into #18 and I shot the only birdie, to take first. :-)
Bad: That round included a missed 10-footer and a double-bogey that would have been an easy 4 with a pitchout. Doh
Ugly: After Saturday's epic 6-hour round on the upper course, my piddly entry into the long-drive competition. Tired arm plus only having my headwind discs with me made for some measly throws.

good: 58 @ Metcenter. had 8 birdies(of the like 9 or 10 par 3s). won the mini

bad: shanked a few drives because of an adjustment I made(more power!)

ugly: took a 7 on hole one. came out cold from work and 3 putted hole 1. honestly I probably wouldn't have shot so well overall, because that shitty hole got me focused real fast

good: tweaked my throw a few days ago. has resulted in "easier" distance and was less strain on my body. creating a lot more leverage and accuracy. also been honing in my thumber skills with my 150g QOLF. Fun thumber disc and I try to make it work on just about any hole possible. really enjoying skip thumbers

bad: I am overthrowing my putter drives. off the box or approach, my omegas are cruising and I am barely trying. This might sound good to most people, but this is something I need to figure out before my next tourney in 2 weeks. I can't afford to be over throwing landing points at the Metcenter with OB on every hole.

ugly: I think I played about par at Searight(I normally shoot -8), because I was overthrowing everything into the shit. The baskets on this course are only 15-20ft away from the rough, and once you get in there the putts get pretty stupid.
