Confidence Boost

Hit the new and improved Lagoon Valley Park this past Saturday, again, and played a whopping 34 holes and came out with all my discs, AGAIN!

Played the front 9 around the water hazard and managed to park hole 4 for the second week in a row. Throws are getting much better, slightly more accurate, with added distance. Hole 4 is a shorter hole, my favorite throw of the day was on 14, not sure of its distance, but put the drive within 15 ft of the hole. Used my Lace as a test on the second time playing 14 and it worked out in my favor. Dropped the putt for a birdie (full disclosure: it was a second attempt as I missed the first shot with the Aviar, made it with the Wizard).

Now to just keep developing my form so those throws with my distance drivers get better, and better. I’m ready to play my next rounds!

Milestone!

Today I took on Lagoon Valley Park all by my lonesome and it was a good day. Played a round and a half with zero lost discs and two birdies on the day. One disc was nearly lost to the pond because wind flipped it back, but luckily it landed right on the edge of the water where I could reach.

I also learned on Saturday that I’m capable of throwing in the 300-350 ft range, I just need an unrestricted field to throw on. Now I just need to translate that into the playing field.

Slow Week

Haven’t gotten any rounds in recently :-(. The weekend weather was bad on Saturday and Sunday I went to Six Flags. Hopefully I’ll get some play in this weekend and the holiday on Monday.

Long road ahead…

Played a couple of rounds at the dreaded Lagoon Valley Park, today. Dreaded because I lose a disc there every time, and today was no exception.  The difference today was that I lost a disc that I could consider a “burner” disc (DX Shark), I still have another Shark to replace it. My throwing is a lot better, even had the confidence to play the water hazard holes. I would have been well over par if I was keeping score, but I just play for fun.

It was cool to learn today that there is an old guy that wades the water hazard and pulls out discs and sells them. Closest thing I’ll get to a local shop around here. Also, I learned that he actually calls the numbers on the discs he finds, so I may get that Shark back, yet. He had some different discs, not just innovas and he trades as well. Overall had a fun day on the course, hoping for many more to come.
