Aside from the fact that it is February 20th, 2021 and the sun was shining and we are playing a round of disc golf … THE WIND SUCKS! It started with just a healthy wind but manageable but it sure did not take long to ruin my game. After posting a health Eagle on hole 1 from the reds the wind decided to erase my lead. On a decent drive on hole two I decided to just flop my putter up to the basket and take the par especially as the other players we all going to be hitting par’s at best. Well, the wind took my disc and flung it about 5 meters past […]
We played yesterday and it was the beginning of February so today it occurs to me that I should set a disc golf goal for 2021. I intend to play at least one round in every month of the year. I intend to play at least 2 rounds on 21 different courses this year. Well, so far, I have 2 of 12 months and 1 of 21 different courses.
A beautiful February day with the temperature easily over 10 C. Jay, John and myself were out there again playing for the second day in a row. The round was from the Reds again as there was a bit of a breeze but … IT IS FEBRUARY!! After playing strong for 2 months and posting personal bests I have crashed back to earth. Two days in a row the games and scores have been dismal … comparatively speaking. Yesterday I could not seem to focus on the basket so my putting suffered. Today, while the putting was marginally better, I could not seem to approach the basket and was relying on very long putts. I […]
The last day of January and it is a pleasant 9 degrees centigrade … on January 31st, 2021! Of course we are going to play a round of disc golf. My opening hole started with a forehand flick around a tree to sink an Eagle putt. I am in for a great game! Well, by hole 3 I knew that was not a true statement. My drives were solid to awesome, my approaches were at best medium, and aside from 3 holes my putting was very disappointing. Wind was not really a factor but my focus certainly was. For instance, on hole 16 I had the best drive ever, and missed a 3.5 meter Eagle […]
Friday afternoon in the middle of January and playing yet another round in 2021. Fantastic! Solid round from the Reds and added my Discraft Hades. Jay and I were tied at -7 on hole 16. I fluff and Eagle opportunity and Jay did not. Things change again on hole 17 with Jay hitting a tree and taking a rare Bogey and I did a routine par. Tied back up at -8 going into the final hole. The rule is you must win the game to take Kitty so a tie leaves the lovely trophy in my hands. In a moment of not really thinking I take out the brand new Hades. I fumble the throw […]
