New Players 2012
« on: March 27, 2012, 08:16:46 AM »
What a great night at Rosedale for the last unofficial round of new players league.  Yes, next week, April 2, it is for real.  Some of the scores were ridiculous but that just shows a lot of improvement has been made over the mild winter by people.  The 80% handicap based on last year didn't hurt either.

Adam Abernathy 36
Dale Walters       45
Andrew Walters  47
Chris Timko         54
Ben Crosby         56
Chris Millsap        57
Michael Taylor      59
Bobby Dietzel      65

We are going to have a great year with sponsorships from KCFDC, Dynamic Discs & Disc Golf World.  What does that mean?  Come out and see for yourself.

Expect the first mini clinic in May.  They may start out with top local players but I do have a commitment from a national tour player to stop in for a night.

Monday, 6pm?
No entry fee?
What is a New Player?  My Kan-U-Wyco rating would have been a 836.

New player league is simply a league for new/newer players to play with more experienced players.  This way, whether through active "coaching" or just watching the more experienced players, the newer player can get tips on throwing, rules, and play in general.  As Ben mentioned, he tries to get local pros to give clinics a few times during the season (usually meet at Swope for the clinics).  As of right now, we are starting at 5:30 so we can fininsh before dark.  Hope to see you there.
Sorry to hear about your luck!!!   :P

Yes, tags are in play and enough people with tags to make it worth while.

What a fantastic night at Rosedale Park last night for the official start of New Players League. 13 of the 21 people that started the round a little after 5:30 were first time players to the league.  Only two of those twenty-one left early for different reasons.  There was an ace on hole 7, but we are a free league with no ace fund so half of zero is still zero.  Tag 2 was the low tag and Matt successfully defended it.  Chris Millsap walked away with an Elite X Stratus for CTP.

Rich, I don't make mistakes.  I just figured you are such a decent guy I would take 7 strokes off your score, but now that you question me I am only going to take 2 off next week.

Yes, they are handicapped scores.  That is what I will be posting this year.

This is an unscheduled clinic.  I did not have time to get information out to all the courses and stores in town but I am not going to say no when an opportunity like this comes up.  If you had planned on getting out tonight great.  Things will be a little different tonight because getting some advice from this caliber of players will raise your game more than playing a round and trying to figure it out on your own.  Like always we may have time to get out on the course and put into practice what has been passed on.  If you live on the East side of town, and don't usually come out, take the little extra time to get to Rosedale so you don't miss this.

A great big THANK YOU to all the players that showed up last night at our Dynamic Discs Clinic. There was over 50 people for this event. And a Thank You to Paul Ulibarri, Catrina Allen and Ken Franks for sharing their tips and technics with the people that showed up. The first question from the crowd was about the mental game and they all touched on that. Very interesting to hear the pros talk about what they go through. Then putting demos, and then Catrina starting throwing some 350' and longer drives. Catrina then worked with the girls for about an hour on their driving and putting. Paul and Tank threw some bombs also then worked personally with whoever had questions. All three pros said that was one of the biggest turnouts of players for a clinic that they had been a part of. Great time last night I hope everyone got something out of it.

The New Players and Women's League on Monday Night 4/16 at 5:30pm will feature Dynamic Discs Team Members Phil Arthur World Masters Champion, Paige Pierce Current Worlds Women's Champion and Paul McBeth from California. There could be a few others show up also. There will be a Question and Answer and then a distance demo by the top players in the world. This should give you time to play after the demo. I hope to see you all out there on Monday evening!
