Best Round: Bogie free hot round at Swope during a KCFDC club championships one year. I was on a card with Charlie Baursfeld and he told me it was the cleanest round he'd ever seen. Not bad coming from a blind guy. Miss you Charlie!

PDGA Number: 7148
When you started: 1980 chucking Wham-O 80e mold Ultimate discs at objects (so not technically disc golfing 'til '83, see first disc)
Throwing Style: RHBH
Putting Style: Straddle pitch (35 years after starting, I finally found a putt style that mostly works for me)
Favorite Pro: Nate Doss
Favorite Disc: Bolt
Favorite Disc Manufacturer: Latnovacraft
Lifetime Aces: 5 (Delaveaga #12 short - casual round, Swope #17 - KCWO, Wyco #5 short - league, Wyco #8 twice; once in casual round another in league)
Best Round: 57 at Pickard in 2007 First Class Challenge, though a couple of 52's at Wyco have felt just about as good.
Favorite Course: DeLaveaga, Santa Cruz, Ca.  nothing will challenge you to sharpen your game like this one played regularly.
Least Favorite Course: Hellyer Park, San Jose, Ca. gully golf defined.
One Disc Round disc: Depends on the course, but pack one for any possibility?  I'd probably go with whatever driver I'm favoring at the time.  So a Bolt
Person who got you into disc golf: Wasn't really a person but a necessity for when we still wanted to throw but not enough players around for a game of Ultimate. But "Rojo" probably did most to keep up my interest in the game with regular friendly competitive rounds in the mid to late 80's.
First Disc: mail order Innova Champion Aero (man was it cool to throw a disc from one goal post to the other on a football field)
If there was any course you could play: Winthrop Gold at USDGC.  It's not just about the course but the entire event and atmosphere around it.
Home Course: Wyco

Jamie Danger Barry, #3628 my dad taught me frisbee golf in 8th grade throwing through hula hoops attached shoulder high on oak saplings. So that was 1972, and we threw casually but not very often until 1979, when I moved to Yellowstone National Park Wyoming and met other golfers. We threw Whamos, and the little 110 mold was my favorite, but discs crack, you fix em with glue or melted plastic off a bit pen with a big lighter. 1980 we got competitive, organized a league at Fishing Bridge with a championship, and by 1983, there were 3 other clubs and the Yellowstone Frisbee Golf Championships. We bought mail order Aviars and Aeros from Conrad Damon at La Mirada, he was cool so the best of us played the National Chapionship out there and Sam Ferrans won, maybe 1985.
Right now I throw the Bosses and some Prodigy, but can go all day with a Wizard. My style is RHBH with a Scooby putt.

Smithville is my favorite course complex, and I really don't care for Fox Hill in KC or White Birch in STL.
espouse elucidation                                               Be excellent to each other

No, .gif files of scenes from popular movies showing an actor making funny faces and shaking their shoulder are apparently not allowed here. In fact, they violate every rule of this forum! :o
