78-ft Ringer and a Gold Record

After more than a week absent from a disc golf course, Justin and I finally were able to hit the course. Our last few meet-ups at Oregon Park we started throwing from the back tees, the Golds. It’s definitely more of a challenge and allows you to really unleash some hella throws on those long Par 4s. Oregon Park’s Gold has a nice blend of long holes mixed with shorter technical holes.

Anyways, back to my story. I started off a little slow and bogeyed the first hole (standard). As the holes progressed I got on fire and lucked up on some long drives and approach shots. Starting off the back 9, I had my longest drive on Hole 10 yet. This drive left me a slightly obstructed birdie attempt from nearly 80 ft out. The only tree in my way was one about 5 ft to the left between me and the basket. Me being a lefty, yes it was in the way. So I took out my trusty Leopard, angled it towards me and released a high anhyzer shot. It sailed around the tree and turned over to the right as it started to descend. CaCHING. Walked it off, 78 ft.

I was proud. Finished out EVEN which would be my new course record from the Gold tees.

B’ham Play

Hey guys! Gees has it been like a decade since we posted last. I know we’ve all been extremely busy; its been crazy here. But just wanted to let you guys know–more than likely–I’ll be in town this coming weekend (Sept. 23-25). I was wanting to know if any of you guys want to get up to play a few rounds. Possibly some Birmingham courses or if there’s another area you recommend. Let me know you guys thoughts.

Jasper record -5….. Witnessed!

Oh yeah, this guy scored – 5 this past weekend at the North Jasper Park.    I know its been unbearably hot recently, but we really need to schedule a dogleg tourney or something to get this off the ground.

I am an official PDGA  member after the small contribution.  With that being said, now we can put together a team for local tournament play.   There are 2 being held in bham towards the end of September.   Let me know if anyone wants to go with.

Once our co-founder gets his home remodel done over the next week or so, then we will get some more products ordered.
