 4 hrs Disc Golf – tournament in Senoia, GA


Very difficult conditions playing the disc golf tournament today.  The course itself is very creative, consisting of short, narrow alleys, lined with 2-3″ diameter pines.  If you land in them, you’re basically “in jail,” and you can only hope to punch out to the fairway.  Secondly, the winds were 15-20 mph, with 25-30 mph gusts!  Whatever accuracy I was striving for became somewhat random in the wind. 

Not everyone had as hard a time as I did.  I realized a lot of my frustration when playing is worked out on big open holes, where I can really let loose some monster drives to release some tension.  Not possible much on this course.

As a result of this tourney today, I now know that:

  1. I didn’t throw straight very well,
  2. I don’t know what my usual discs will do when thrown shorter distances,
  3. I didn’t adapt very quickly to the conditions,
  4. I abandoned my initial effective strategy when I couldn’t implement it,
  5. I started trying to play like my opponents,
  6. I didn’t really feel and visualize each outcome I wanted, and 
  7. I need more tension releasing skills.

The good news was:

  1. I was very relaxed from the beginning,
  2. I stayed curious about strategies could try,
  3. I stayed loose enough to continue taking calculated risks,
  4. I focused back on basic skills to improve what I could,
  5. I never gave up,
  6. I got a workable strategy by the end, and
  7. I didn’t get down on myself about my playing.

    I found out this weekend that I choose to be stressed out … it didn’t make me feel very good.
