October 24, 2012 Round Summary – 2012 Surgeon’s Cup Final Round

The 2012 season is over and the Cup is “back where it belongs” according the Fall Cup winner, Sammy Jackson! And in putting it there, he scored the best single and best two rounds in Surgeon’s Cup recorded history. With a -17 in round one and a -13 in round two, his combined -30 is two strokes better than his previous records of -15 (shared with MaT) and -28 respectively.

If you will recall, he came into the fall Cup touting his threatenin ... more

October 17, 2012 Round Summary –Surgeon’s Cup Round One

Sammy scored the highest round ever for a Surgeon’s Cup round at -17! Add that to the fact, that he also holds the all time course record of -19, and you have what will likely be a “ho-hum” round for the Cup next Wednesday.

However, there will be a couple of other battles going on behind our leader.

Six strokes behind Sammy are Brad and Wayne (tied at -11). Wayne, who started the round with two bogies, fought back ending with an ace on ... more

October 10, 2010 Round Summary

First and foremost, the league wishes to extend its condolences to MaT and his family for the loss of his grandmother.

The winds calmed and four players would throw the last tune up round of the season before the coveted Surgeon’s Cup kicks off next Wednesday.

No one in the group hit anywhere close to their season best; but all seemed to be taking the course a bit more seriously than the typical round. Admittedly, there were several scoring corrections discussed and agr ... more

October 3, 2012 Round Summary

Another great night for a game; and this night, the group embarked upon a new format heretofore to be known as BestB.

Six players were randomly divided into two teams who squared off in a match play format reminiscent of last weekend’s ball golf Ryder Cup.

Unlike ball golf, the NFGA plays mob golf, whereby everyone plays in a single group. While questionable from an efficiency perspective, this format has allowed the group to play unencumbered; as most neighbors are ... more

September 26, 2012 Round Summary

September 28, 2012

Duluth, GA USA (AP) – The temperature was a little warmer this evening but the rounds were somewhat cool. Drives seemed to be shorter and fewer seemed to find the fairway.

Not a bad round all-in-all, but not much to write home about.

Statistically speaking, the league APAR moved to 10 which coupled with the double points format has put some additional spread in the point standings. Movement included Russell a ... more

September 19, 2012 Round Summary

Duluth, GA USA (AP) – Another beautiful afternoon for Frisbee Golf and a bit of a surprise on the course as our league points race tightened up a bit.

Robby, our current league points leader, was admittedly well off his game this round while Sammy came blaring out of hibernation to score a season record setting -18 (only one stroke short of the course all time singles record, also held by him).

MaT, who started off his round with a drive that earned him the first &aci ... more

NFGA Frisbee Golf - Fall League Update

September 17, 2012

Duluth, GA USA (AP) – With a mere four rounds scheduled before the Fall Surgeon’s Cup, I thought it would be an interesting exercise to review some of the year to date NFGA league statistics.

Of course, it is always the coveted Surgeon’s Cup that this league revels around. And that is simple to follow and plays out with a couple of rounds in the summer and a couple of rounds ... more

September 12, 2012 Round Summary

Six players would play a round of doubles on what had to be one of the nicest evenings of the season.

With another resounding 12 meter double eagle on hole seventeen, Robby would bring his team to within a stroke of Wayne and Sammy. While he and MaT would take their best shots at eighteen, they would still finish a stroke short of Sammy and Wayne who won the round at -18. Brad and Dean rounded out the group at -5.

With this nights round, the league APAR remains at 8.

August 29, 2102 Round Summary

Seven players would play tonight and witness one of the leagues’ biggest, late round meltdowns in history. And yes, the melt started on the infamous Travis Trail. But first let’s talk about the start of the round.

Sammy would lead off with the only birdie on the first hole while everyone else would par. Hole two would have significance for two players. Brad decided to go mud bogging just past the hole while Wayne hit his first of what would be eight co ... more

August 22, 2012 Round Summary

Six golfers turned out for the season’s fourth round of doubles in what would be one of the most exciting finishes in memorable NFGA history. A season doubles’ record of -21 would be set between two teams who would have to play two playoff holes to settle the round.

We pick up the action on the tee for Hole 17 with the team of Sammy and Wayne at -17 leading Robby and Brad by a stroke. All four players threw nice drives giving no apparent advantage to ei ... more

August 15, 2012 Round Summary

Five players made the tee tonight and we had our second playoff of the season pitting Robby against Brad who played his best round of the season and bested his best ever course score by a stroke.

At twelve under, the playoff only went to a single hole as Brad went long and Robby went short. Finding himself blocked by the shule behind the first playoff hole, Brad was not able to convert while Robby hit his second shot to take the round.

It was a medallion free night though two Bs met up wi ... more

August 1, 2012 Round Summary – Doubles

A light turn out for the start of the month saw four players play on dry fairways but wet roughs. Again the grips were affected and scores were lower than normal for a doubles round
Brad and Wayne took a one stroke lead on the front that (in spite of a threat from the trailing duo) would hold up through the round.

The league APAR advanced to 8 this night which has changed and spread the league points out a bit.

This round’s anonymous sound bite (delivered on the tee for hole 11 and with a pointed index finger) was, “Five holes – three strokes, watch us!”


Wayne Russell   July 28, 2012 at 7:56am

July 25, 2012 Round Summary

A very hot and humid round made for sweaty grips and an unusual number of off fairway throws.

Robby would take the round with his sixth league Ace on 18 advancing his position of most Aces for the course and second highest Ace earnings.

The league APAR remains at 7.

This round’s anonymous sound bite was, “So you were looking for bent grass?”

July 18, 2012 Round Summary

After a two week hiatus, MaT came back to continue his dominance of both the weekly league rounds and the LEAGUE!

While the weather worked its way around the night, MaT worked his magic on the round. Guess we all know why the CUP is still in his possession.

Come on boys, get on out here and change that!

APAR remains at 7.

This rounds ananymous sound bite was, "Well, he needs to do a little more trimming then, doesn't he?"

June 27, 2012 Surgeon’s Cup – Round Two Summary

My apologies for the delay in this post. I cite the holiday as my excuse!

The Summer Rounds are in the books.

It was hot and muggy as the field of six teed off on the second round that would determine who would shelf the Cup for the rest of the summer. Three players (MaT, BOB and Wayne) would vie for the Cup while three others (Robby, Sammy and Brad) would play an exhibition round.

Going into the round, MaT was up a stroke over BOB and Wayne with Travis back five strokes. With Travis u ... more

June 20, 2012 Surgeon's Cup Round One Summary

The NFGA Surgeon’s Cup Summer Round One was played on the afternoon of June 20 and what a round it was.

Even with two of the league’s top players not making the cut, the competition was still fierce, and as expected, came down to the Travis Trail to finish it off.

The four players making the cut for the summer round were the current Cup holder MaT, BOB, Travis and Wayne.

MaT took an early lead on the first hole but Wayne kicked it up and at five und ... more

June 6, 2012 Round Update - D-Day

MaT brought his ‘A’ game this afternoon and crushed the season best round record with a stellar -16 to beat the previous -15 as shared by Sammy and Robby. An additional fourteen, a thirteen, a couple of elevens, a nine and an eight rounded out the good showing for seven players. Both MaT and Wayne hit their season’s best tonight as the group moves closer to the first Surgeon’s Cup rounds!

May 16, 2012 Round Summary

Another nice afternoon for the first alternating doubles format for the NFGA. Six players paired into three teams for this historical round.

MaT and Sammy came out on top of the teams of Robby and Wayne and Travis and Kevin.

Whether future doubles will be run under the same format will be determined by the League Committee (hee-hee).

MaT picked up an Automobile Association medallion on 16 by clocking one of three vehicles parked in a row on the fairway.

After a full day of intermittent showers, the weather cleared nicely for this afternoon’s tee time.

Sammy was on from the start and won the round with a season record matching -15. Robby kept it interesting by staying a couple of strokes back throughout the round while MaT and Wayne battled for a distant third.

May 2, 2012 Round Summary

Robby broke a three way first place tie for the round, took the League Overall points lead and the $60US Ace Pool with one throw; a Hole in One on 18! Great job Robby.

Seven players were out for one of the most competitive rounds of the season. As the group teed it up on 16 there were three players tied for the lead and two only a stroke behind. Wayne and Kyle were there too.

Not much changed through 17 where several long shots were holed including a thundering 41.3m hammer by Kyle from ... more

April 25, 2012 Round Summary

“MaT is back!” So he says! His score validates the statement as he hit a -14; only one stroke short of the season record held by Robby who finished second tonight at -9.

Sammy finished third and Wayne fourth while Travis played a shortened “exhibition” round to play out the evening.

A couple of club membership medallions were awarded to Sammy who collected a Postal Service click on six and Travis who hit a first throw Aut ... more

April 18, 2012 Round Summary

Robby was back and took the round by one stroke over MaT. And once again, the Travis Trail provided us with a few chances to change the outcome but no one could out stay the perseverance of Mr. Morgan.

Wayne joined the Postal Service with a light but qualifying tap on his way to a bogey on eight and Sammy tagged a car (or is it a storage building) on fourteen.

On eighteen, Wayne left his drive about 6 inches short of an ace so the pool has rolled over once again. Who will tag the first a ... more

• BOB took the round again and still leads the league by three points over Sammy.

March 21, 2012 Round Review

Here we were with seven players in a field of pollen that would skid our discs further down the street than any other time in the young season thus far.

The yellow contrails behind our Bees and the ongoing sound of them sliding on past our views would make this a night that may play out to be different than any night that may follow.

In any case, Sammy is back. Taking the round with a -14, he has redeemed himself from his hapless start last week of -6 and now holds a third place position ... more

March 14, 2012 Round Review

Eight players came out to play on this great evening for Frisbee Golf.

Robby brought it on with a game that left everyone chasing from the start. For the record, he finished at -15 only 3 strokes off his course best. BOB gave him a run and finished two strokes behind at -13 which tied his best ever for the course, as set in 2010. I don’t know about the rest of you, but BOB (who only made 5 rounds last season) should be considered a serious threat coming out of the chut ... more
