Yesterday before work there was almost no wind at all at Miniwaukin. I threw my archangel on a REALLY high hyzer for hole 9 (and fell again after I launched it. Typical) and it wrapped around the right oak and drifted past the basket about the distance of 30 feet. Of course I missed the putt and got it in three. But I almost had a hole record for myself. I really hope I can start getting these distances consistently. My putts have been bad lately and despite five birdies I still finished +2. I'm gonna see what happens to my score in this wind today. I need to get back in my -3/2/1 range.

You must have really launched that disc, pars on that hole are rare for me. Yeah it's pretty slick out there right now, t hey need to get's some pads in there as well. Not sure where I'll go today with the wind like it is maybe back to whitewater it's blocked from the wind pretty good. I can see there being alot of college punks out there in the summer though.

How can you spot a college kids disc bag ( all the names and numbers are crossed out on the discs

Hahahahaha. How true. I lost a pro wraith Sunday evening when I went back out. No idea if it surfaced yet. It shot under the crusty ice on hole 2. I'm a little bummed but luckily it wasn't a workhorse disc for me.

Anyway, I just finished my game. It was SO WINDY. I stopped myself from shooting normal long putt attempts just tried landing by the pin. First three holes I was over 1. Then I made two birdies before hole 9. Par'd hole 9 again luckily. And shot par the rest of the course. Low risk shots let me finish -2 and I'm pretty happy with myself for the conditions

***shot for par. I made a up the rest of my score with some wind assist birdies

That's called playing the wind and you should practice it whenever you can someday you'll have to play a tournement in it
