Good: Shot 75 on the Patpasco Green Monster, my best score by far
Bad: Started fluffing some easy shots on the second round, including a sloppy 6 on #13.
Ugly: Practice drive on #15 was excellent, so I decided to play it out (along with my first drive, of course). Tried to hyzer the Ion around a tree, but it stood up and rolled 200' down the hill. Took me two shots to get back up, leaving a 25' uphill putt. Putted low, hit the front of the basket, and rolled 100' back down the hill. Approached and putted for a 7. Good thing it was only practice!
Good: Me and akuf were two thirds of the hosts of a putting competition held for the students of one of universities of applied sciences here. Dozens of people got to putt and one guy that had never heard of DG won a disc from being third and the second place guy took away two discs. Second place man had played once. Good part deux stunning ladies one of whom had wanted to play after seeing DG at a local course during her jogging. She improved fast in putting and her friend threw in about 40 footer. Hope we have two new players.
Bad: If we had had more putters and we wouldn't have had more people needing to be shown what we are about, i would have given the good female putters discs. Time constraints being what they were meant that that never happened. Doh! There are never too many female players. Especially ones that showed talent from the get go.
Ugly: My back after throwing drives without proper warming up after 5 hours of telling people about DG, the putting competition and giving tips on putting and hauling a lot of gear. Ugly 2: Mondo when wet is slippery. The remnants of hurricane Katia meant lots of wind. I had to help the event organizers, when their plans went awry with most sport demos needing to be moved indoors. With too little pre planning.
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.
good: Played my 2nd tourney in Open. shot 980 and 965 rounds on the first day of the tourney. Put me in a position to cash. Got to play a final round with Yeti
bad: Forgot a disc after it went OB. no one turned it in(nice CE EXP1, go figure). That 965 round included a three hole stretch(9-11) that was 5 strokes worse than my other two rounds. All three holes suit my "big arm" style.
ugly: fell apart today. found every OB. shot a 912 rated round(I think). Finished 10 strokes out of the cash Took an 8 on hole 12(par 3) after throwing OB off the box 2 ties in a row(the throw is directly OB off the box if you don't make it back in). Worst round ever on a course I play about 2 times a week(7 strokes worse than my previous worst).
can't be too upset for only like my 8th PDGA event and 2nd in Open. But that 3rd round was just disgusting. If I had just shot what I did in my 965 rated round, I would have cashed.
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius Tell me and I'll forget; Show me and I may remember; Involve me and I'll understand
Good: Finally starting to push my driving distance over 300'. Played a casual 36 at Seneca Creek, birdied a few holes I normally don't reach, and even over-threw 10B, a 350' slightly downhill right-turning hole.
More good: FH approaches are returning
Bad: FH driving still sux.
Ugly: Lost two discs on the first five holes, including my go-to Star Valk. Looks like it's autumn disc-losing season again.
Bad - starting out double bogey, double bogey, bogey, double bogey...this after being only +4 after 16/20 in practice Ugly - second round shattering my previous record worst hole ever carding a natural 10, no penalties, on a par 5 Uglier - being the only schmuck out there to actually admit to misplaying a hole eating two more strokes in the process. Ugliest - took third in division
...there was a time when you were taught to find the best disc for you, not the best disc for your situation on the course, which is how they are sold now. IMO, the flight charts are basically there to point out all the stuff you dont have in your bag and why you suck.
