Thank you very much.  I thought I might get my first ace on #1 there for a second.  It was hard to see, but the anhyzer on #2 was a cool line and result.  For some reason my main struggle on this day was just releasing the disc a bit too high.  It still ended up as a nice round though.

I did a fair amount of putter work and a little throwing motion work over the winter.  The DG game seems to be improving.

I particularly liked the clean release on that long putter throw that tickled the chains.

Forehand still sucks, though. :-D*

Yeah I am still really bad with the forehand shots.  Just can't get the disc to release cleanly.

My favorite shot was the silky smooth backhand turnover line on #12. ;-)

This is a little course I created on our hunting land about a week ago.  Just three baskets but three six tee positions that play very fun and pretty tough.  I eventually want to try and find a way to make the par 2 longer and into a par three.  We need to do some more clearing of trees and brush.  

First the flyover:

 

First round played:

Another round after some additional clearing later that day:

Not anymore!  ;-)

As promised here is a recent disc golf round.  I am a bit rusty and my form is off, but shooting under par on a course this tough is not easy.  Sorry for the weird noises in the video, tried to cover it with some music, but I think my audio is corrupted.

    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
    • You know what I'm talking about.  That hole that eats your lunch every time you face it.  It may not even be a tough hole, but for some reason you can't seem to score well.   Mine is the opening hole on the Gold Course at Martin County Golf and Country Club.  It's a long par 5 dogleg left.  There's water halfway down, huge greenside bunkers, and several well-placed trees to punish any attempt at cutting the corner off the tee.  The rough slopes away steeply the whole way down the right side, often kicking your ball into the woods.  A bogey is my standard score.  I feel like I'm automatically going to be down a stroke right out of the gate. I've been playing that course since I was 12.  I'm 42 now.  Today, I reached the green in two for the first time in my life, then made birdie.  I couldn't believe it! Below are some short vids of me on my way to finally conquering this beast.  I'd love to hear about your trials with your nemesis hole.   And then the 3-wood, high draw to the green:
