Back in town and wanting to play an early round 7-11-10
« on: June 27, 2010, 04:04:08 PM »
I am going to be back in KC for a very quick visit for a friends wedding.  Unfortunately I will only have time to play one round and it will have to be early on Sunday July 11.  I have heard nothing but good things about Young park so I plan to play there.  I am hoping to play fairly early as I have family stuff going later in the day.  If you want to play, let me know.  BP, I expect you up and ready to play  ;D

Also, tell me a little about the course.  Will I be good to go with only a few discs(putter, Roc, Teebird) or do I need to bring the bag for a round here? 
Put down your shiny new speedy driver and learn to throw the Roc!

If it is your first time here it would be a good idea to take a few extra discs.

1)Your mother doesn't play disc golf so pick up your trash!

2)Mike Keizer knows all the badass places to eat.

3)John Theiss has plastic and chains running through his blood.

4)Barton knows whats up!

I'm pretty sure DrRyan can throw a Wizard 350+ with enough height.

Of course, height is the question at Young.  A lot of low ceilings out there...

#2 is not a wizard hole.  The ceiling is too low for the straight shot, and I wouldn't chose a wizard as my 1st disc to hold that hyzer.
#5 short only, but I'd probably throw a spike at both.
#6 maybe busted on the giant anhyzer; the ceiling is too low for straight shot.
#12 man, that's a lot of disc for that hole.  I'm sure you could get one there, but there's better discs to chose there.
#15 is pretty uphill for a wizard
#16 more of a midrange hole or a driver hole over the top

What I would suggest to someone playing the course for the 1st time
Flippy putter
Stable putter
flippy midrange
stable/overstable midrange
Fairway driver you can work mainly right and straight.  I can only think of 1 hyzer hole I'd throw this on (#12).
Super overstable driver for spikes, thumbers, forehand rollers, etc
A distance driver for 2-3 holes (optional)

Wow, that looks just like a down under bag!

out there i'm mr layup and i'm shooting for 3 on even the short holes.  but you're right about 2, i take that back.


i'm to the point out there i throw a driver on 1, 7, 9 and sometimes 6.  but even 6 and 9 are seeing slower, straighter discs and hopefully well placed layups lately.  i tried to push it with drivers last night and paid for it.

when you throw discs straight into the ground 30 feet from the tee, it really doesn't make a difference does it?  :P

Then push with midranges; while I throw more drivers at Young than I throw Down Under, I still throw more mids/putter than drivers, especially on those shorter holes. 

Midranges:  All of the distance, half the risk!

Thanks for all the recommendations.  Jack, you know I will be bringing at least a Wizard or two.  Most likely I will just bring the bag.

It sounds like Wizard, Roc, Drone, Leopard, TL and Firebird could get it done though.  Maybe thrown in a Destroyer to try and reach 10.
Put down your shiny new speedy driver and learn to throw the Roc!

You better believe it!  Much more likely to see me throw the Roc a little further but half as high in the air.
