Ask them to back up.  I do this all the time, especially if the peripheral distraction is on my right side, I don't know why the left side doesn't bother me as much.  Ask them every single time if they continue to do it and back off from your lie until they do.  If you go ahead and putt knowing full and well they are bugging you then it's your fault, not theirs.

This is a pet peeve of mine and I've seen so many players do this, and sadly it is sometimes players who should know better.  We all do it from time to time being distracted, but it's on you to let the person know.

Watch videos and pay attention to every little detail.  Don't watch them for entertainment only, be a student of the game.

Don't ONLY play casual rounds.  In the latest issue of Disc golfer magazine there is an interview with Ricky Wysocki done by our own Dan Loomis, and in it he credits his rapid growth to throwing multiple drives from each hole on a course and playing every single shot to completion.  That way you are getting two or three rounds in one. 

Putt for 15 to 30 minutes every day, concentrating inside 20 feet.  Don't be that guy who practices 35 footers before a round, missing them all.

I love WyCo. league and attend when I have the chance, but the distance is the biggest reason for not attending regularly.  I live in Blue Springs.

I'm curious of how this modified match play will work, and the best way to find out is to play.  I'm signed up.

Has anyone been to DU?  I'm assuming it's a muddy nightmare.

I'd be down for a double Centennial as well, guys.

You guys are cute. Finally getting you s$!@ together a week before the first qualifier. Or is this even a qualifier for you coming up? Oh boy, maybe you don't have it together. Good luck with that.

We've learned to do things at the last minute here in the East in order to adjust to last minute rules changes of years past.

My vote is for Steve Dresser to be the captain of the East side.  He has shown interest from the start and I believe will to a great job.

Thank you, Tracy.

Hey Dick, I lost around seven players last year. I also didn't make this query with the intention to run for Captain again.  Just tell me when and where and I'll show up.  The less I read about the event, the more inner peace I'll have.

Steve Dresser has expressed interest in being the captain and I support him.

FUN!   ;D

So it's now allowed to recycle old captains?  It seems like the West is just rolling with this.
