If it IS you Tom, just because you only play two or three times a week, doesn't mean you can stay an Amateur after the year YOU'VE had! I may only play once or twice a week if I'm lucky myself...  :-\

I have some ideas for logos, player pack gifts, and course record commendations. How do I post an image in this here forum?? These are JPG images that I cannot link to from another site.

OPEN- A minimum of $1,100 will be added to the pro purse ($1,100 raised already... for sure more to come)

Will the added ca$h only go to Open Pro Men? Will it be proportioned to Pro Masters and/or Pro Women?

After defeating a 999 rated player, two 984 rated players, a 970 rated player, and several young strong fellows as well Sunday at Prairie Center to walk away with the coveted #1, all I can say is.... it's good to be CHIEF !

And who, by chance, is "Dances with Yorkies"? Looks to me like Tom Butler behind that mask!

Slim, you are quite the rhymin' Simon aren't ya now?! Well said, even with your tongue in your cheek!

Yes, one should learn how any/all of your discs fly for different shots. Sometimes you just MIGHT wanna putt your driver, like when you have a really low ceiling.

Missing 10-15' putts? Relax. Even a "short" shot needs a complete, smooth stroke. Don't let up just because it's not a 50-footer!

Step back about 2 steps (not full strides) and to the right just a little. Walk into the stroke, but do not step past to avoid the falling putt, as you transfer your momentum into the throwing motion, through to the disc. I don't want to "flick" the disc - open your hand fully - if you are musically inclined think "B Flat"! Pick a link and pitch it straight in  8)

Longer putts outside 20+ you will not want to run so hard. Practice your regular stance, but don't rock your hips too much as you flow through the shot, or try a facing putt with an open stance, or a combination of the two. Aim to the right about a foot or less with a little hyzer, depending on the wind, maybe even higher than the chainset, and let the disc "finish" in the hole. Summed up like a fine wine... "With a smooth and graceful finish"  :D  If you have too much hyzer, tip the nose up a bit to slow down the flight.

At any distance, if I feel the disc isn't coming out smooth I tell myself to quit "stabbing" at it and to let it go in!!   ;D

Welcome Mike!!

Try to keep only a few models of discs in your bag until you feel in control, instead of the discs being in charge. Learn your midrange shots, then apply what you learn to your drivers, with a more power. Keep it smooth!

Let the disc do the work  ???  Don't get happy feet  :o  Learn the shot, then go for more power/distance  ;)  Stable in the air = stable on the ground  8)

Backhand Roller: usually something that's not TOO fast (for control) like a JLS or XL - if it's too beat up for the shot you need you will end up fighting the disc. Try a well-worn ROC or midrange driver to learn the control, then go to something faster.

Sidearm Two-Finger Roller: Aviars and Rhynos (less stable to more stable), and Rocs (more distance) for upshots, and the occasional Firebird or Teebird to blast out of the schul.

Distance Off the Tee: depends on the required landing zone. I always figure the disc needs to land on edge 1/3 to 1/2 of the way to the target. The more stable the disc the sooner you need to set it on its path. Try the "sky roller" treatment with a midrange or putter - great for going up and over without much roll. Then try it with a worn driver at full power - see what that baby will do!!

Sometimes a backhand with your other hand will give you the touch you need (like a 75-foot upshot) so you don't overpower a forehand.
