Gorgeous evening for disc golf. Talk about a small crowd... last night was just Tony Todd and yours truly...  I had to post though because the round was so close. We went tit-for-tat on 17 holes, he was up, I was up, then we got to #17 tied at +2. I drilled my fresh out of the box 10x Cheetah down the fairway to within 15', he hit a tree off the pad and was able to get down for an easy three. All I had to do was make the putt, which I did. So, I collected the lower tag and turned my #169 over to Tony and it was beer thirty.... USM is a beautiful little course.

Disc Golf at USM this evening!

Meeting up about 5:30 for a 6pm or earlier tee off. Let me know if you are coming. We're picking up some grub to cook up after the round.

Should be a great evening for DG.

Join us won't you?   8)

Yeah, yeah, I know you have options but you should check USM at least once this season and tonight will be an excellent opportunity.

Glad you made it out Rick. Keep working on keeping the nose down and follow through. You were getting good distance.

We'll be back to our normal Tuesdays on the 10th.

Doc - 53
Kevin - 56
Tony - 56
Gabe - 73

No aces hit so the ace fund increases to....  uh, I guess whoever kicks in $5 if someone hits one.....

The Old Pike field trip has been postponed to next Tuesday 7/24 since the OP league has been moved to WW tonight.

So, if you are considering hitting up USM, tonight will be a good night to do it. We have four confirmed so far for a 5:30 gathering with a tee time somewhere shortly thereafter.....   8)

Yes indeed! Planning a 5:30-ish tee off. If anyone else is interested in heading out to USM now is a good time to do it.  8) Students will start showing up on campus on the 11th. So this week and next week (the 7th) are our last opportunities with an empty campus.  ;D Expect good times for the next couple of weeks.  :D After that we're expected to behave ourselves....  :o not like we will but you know...   :P

If you're heading our way and can't make it by 5:30 just let me know. It isn't like we have to start at 5:30. We can wait if need be....

Title: Re: USM Disc Golf Tuesdays
Post by: Kevin Montgomery on August 01, 2012, 09:19:54 AM
The usual crowd last night at USM. It didn't seem as hot as one would think either....

Tony Todd  - 54
Doc Norby - 54
Kmont - 55
Rick Rose - 60
Peter - 61
Andy Jewett - DNF

Next week will be the last week before students are back on campus come on out and enjoy the peace and quiet before there are people everywhere....   8)

Thanks Doc! I couldn't do it without Your help and Kevins help! I am only improving because I have mentors who are willing to share advice and give pointers. I truly appreciate it and I always look forward to Tuesdays....I am coming for that bag tag  ;) haha

Thanks again and I am already looking forward to next Tuesday!

Two birdies on the round for Rick too. He's been counting how many birds since he hit his first last week, those two made four total. If he keeps that up he'll lose count in no time... as it should be...   8)

Last week of USM DG this season with an empty campus. Come on out and enjoy a round with us. We're considering doing some grilling after the round. If anyone is interested in heading this way let us know so we can plan accordingly.

I don't think I will make it out there tonight, which really bums me. I have to run home after work and feed the dogs then let them out....unless you don't mind starting after 600-615pm...I just found out last night my room mate won't be home after work, so I have to go take care of the dogs...

We're flexible for start times. As long as we get done by dark. It's your call if you want to do the extra driving. If anyone else is thinking of coming out and needs us to modify the start time just let us know.

You all will still be playing next week right? If so, I will just take this Tuesday off and come back next week

I won't be there for the next several weeks. I can't say for sure if Tony and the other guys will be throwing or not but I will ask this evening and post here so you'll know. But we are on for this evening with a tee off between 5:30 and 6pm.

Another good night at USM. Discs were thrown and beers were consumed. There were a couple of nice ace runs but none went in. We had a classic battle down to the wire between Andy, Doc and Tony last night with Doc pulling out the win on the very last hole with a nice putt for the deuce.

Steven "Doc" Norby - 51
Andy "Barefoot" Jewett - 52
Tony Todd - 52
Kevin "Kmont" Montgomery - 57
Pat "Stally" Stallbaumer - 62

Yes, Jamidanger would be proud... Andy played the entire round barefoot. But now it occurs to be that Tony needs a nickname....

USM Disc golf this evening. 5:30-6ish tee. I won't be there but Tony and the usual crowd plan to tee it up as usual.

Beautiful evening for disc golf at USM. Had six start the round and two joined in midway. There was quite the battle coming into the home stretch. At hole #15 Peter and Mike (who was playing his first round ever) were both tied up. Peter was able to pull out the win over him with a par to Mike's bogie on #17. The real horse race was Tony, Andy and Kevin. We were all tied up at #15 then all three of us started hitting birdies. If I had just stayed in bounds on #17 and taken a par instead of rolling out we'd have ended in a three way tie. Fun night at USM for sure. Next week we'll be trying to tee off a little earlier. Shooting for 5:15.

Andy Jewett - 53
Tony Todd - 53 (huge putt on #18 for the bird)
KMont - 54
Pat (Stally) - 62
Peter - 69
Mike M - 70 (nice shooting for his first ever round of DG)
Justin - DNF (They showed up on #5)
DC - DNF

Another gorgeous evening for disc golf at USM. And one really hot round.

Tony Todd - 49 (a personal best and only one bogie)
Andy Jewett - 51 (a late run to try and catch Tony but Tony wouldn't stop hitting his birdies long enough for Andy to catch him)
KMont - 54 (Can't seem to break par. I had it in sight last night and missed an easy putt on the last hole...  >:(  )

Yes, that's the plan. Likely one of the last Tuesdays of the season. Might be one more after next week but no promises....

We'll try to tee at 5pm but no later than 5:15. We teed last night about 5:15 and had plenty of daylight but the days are getting shorter all the time.

Post by: rickrose2007 on October 10, 2012, 02:10:37 PM
I can try my hardest to make it out there by 5:15, it's not that long of a drive. Life has just taken over for me and took a turn for the best.

I've only played once in a month, so I need to break the rust off

Post by: otter on October 15, 2012, 02:53:57 PM
Rick, if you can, give K~Mont a call around the time you're leaving work to confirm your spot on the card so we'll know if we need to split the group into 2 cards at tee time.  Hope to see you there!

It sounds like it's getting close to the end of league season but is it to late for a new guy to get in. I usually play at Wyandotte so it's not to far and I have been wanting to get up there and play. I've only been playing four months so I'm not very good. Maybe you guys can straighten me out. 
Title: Re: USM Disc Golf Tuesdays
Post by: otter on October 15, 2012, 11:16:52 PM
By all means, come on up! 
Caveat -> I will, however, recommend that you check back here before departing tomorrow as I've not heard from any of the usual suspects who play this league nearly every week.  Since I live in Lawrence, I'll not make this trek unless at least one of them chimes in here by tomorrow afternoon.

Yep, teeing as close to 5pm as possible. Come on up. There should be four of us so far. If we end up with a five-some that should work great. If we have six we may want to split it into two groups of three. Hope you can make it  If you're used to WyCo then USM will be easier on your arm...   8)

Nice foursome at USM last night including one newbie. Welcome to USM Joe! It was windy as heck to start out with but it calmed a bit as the evening progressed. If the wind hadn't got me on #2 and #3 I might have given Tony a run for his money as I shot bogie free after those two ugly holes.

Tony Todd - 53
Kevin - 57
doc - 58
Joe Teater - 62

Planning to be out there on Wednesday of next week instead of Tuesday since Todd Snider will be at Knucklehead's on Tuesday, and so will Tony and I. Then the final USM Tuesday will be the 30th!

The plan is to tee off this Wednesday at 5pm sharp. If you plan to be there but can't make the 5pm tee you can always start at #1 and catch up to us. But let me know if you are planning to be there.

Tomorrow is the last USM Tuesday of the season (unless we go glow a few times). 4:45pm sharp tee time. If we get more than five we may split into two cards.

Last week was a windy night and one score in particular showed it... 

Tony Todd - 52
Andy Jewett - 55
doc Norby - 58
Kevin Montgomery - 64 (tied for a personal worst on my own course - ouch! At least I made my last putt for bird to keep from setting a new personal worst.)

The final official USM Tuesday of the season was a great time. Beautiful evening and some great disc golf. Chris Hinson joined us having never thrown at USM before and while his score didn't reflect a great game he had two amazing shots that deserve mention - Front nine #6 he canned a huge 100'+ putt for birdie right in front of the entire USM football team that had just broken up from practice and were walking right behind him. It was noticed by all and the head football coach even called Tony later to tell him how cool a shot it was and how impressed a lot of the guys were. Then after struggling with the many non-lefty friendly holes on the course he banged solid chains on #18, but alas, it spit.... leaving him an easy 10' putt and $3 richer.

The other highlight was relatively new player Joe Teater's even par round with four, count 'em, four birdies! Nice shooting Joe!

On the other card we had smoking hot Andy Jewett shooting five under with six birdies. Andy started out the round hitting the pin on #1. He didn't collect the dollars Chris collected but that's good shooting nonetheless.

We may be doing some glow off and on this winter, USM lends itself well to glow as it is well lighted to begin with. When a glow round it planned I'll post it here.

Andy Jewett - 49
doc Norby - 52
Joe Teater - 54
Tony Todd - 55
Kevin Montgomery - 57
Chris Hinson - 59
Adam Richter - 63
