Disc golf is considered a sport that all people can play. The young, old, thin, large, man and woman. Today, my partner Diggs and I were out playing Acorn and we ran into a couple (i.e. guy and his gf). He was the only one playing. She was just walking with him. Now to us this is kinda typical since we have all played a round with girls who feel intimidated to play a round of disc with guys because just the sheer fact that they can't (or feel they can't) throw it as "good" as their male counter parts.

So anyway this guy with his other are playing...acorn and we had a few different interactions with him over the course and we (diggs and I) kept getting the image of him fitting right in at the Tool Academy. If ya don't know it, it is a show that airs on VH1. From what I hear Diggs is a fan of the show. From now on the guy will be referred to as the Tool.

On the course he was constantly acting like she wasn't even out there with him. I'll admit I have done this a few times. It sucks afterwords because You never live it down. He was yelling at her to get out of the way. Not all the time to be fair to him but a few times. He repeatedly slapped that A** right after he sank a shot. Ok we only saw that once but it affected our shots I'll say.

A word from the wise. Don't be a Tool when you are out on the course with a girl. treat them with respect. Show them you are interested in them as much as the game. Unless it's not that type of relationship. You'll know.

Until next time

Post Blue Ribbon Pines

I don't have any flashy pictures and I don't have any scores, but I can tell you what is going on after my round at Blue Ribbon Pines. I've been working on my drives. I'm trying to get fluidity like my friends MidRange and Diggs have suggested. I still position my back to the basket before a big drive, but I've taken some effort off to ensure a flat release (hopefully) and a fluid motion. The new Vengie still rainbows (needs breaking in), but I can turn the Wraith over with some annie and a solid grip and I can easily make the Roadrunner finish right without even putting effort behind the throw. The next step is to get out there more often. I''ve heard , from my friend (who will now be called MBFKYLE), that Sioux Falls has a nice course. Hopefully I can hit that venue and work the throw. BTW I talked MBFKyle into buying a Buzz D. We'll see where he ends with that one. +1 to the purchase!!!

We hit up Blue Ribbon Pines, a pay-to-play course in East Bethel this weekend. Located on a sod farm, it was out in the middle of nowhere, and very quiet. I must say, it was one of the best designed and well-maintained courses I've ever been to.

URBWes, the Kind and I played the 27-hole course through twice, and the jello-feeling in my arm is well worth it! I imagine the King will get some pics up soon. Buy my goodness, that was a great day of disc, boys!

McCluskey: Flying saucers

So in an attempt to bring in some outside sources. ESPN just released an article on the sport of disc golf. Complete with quotes from the "Nature Boy" himself and also for some legitimacy "The Champ" as well. I read it and actually was proud that ESPN was giving it alot of good publicity. Makes me proud to be playing BRP today.

Just follow the link
