Today, I finally made it back out to a course and played 18 wonderful holes of disc golf. My score wasn’t great (shot a +14), but it sure was nice to get out into the sun and throw some plastic around. Got some 3’s, too many 4’s and a couple 5’s. I also threw one OB on #6. This is what I get for having not played in over a year. I will not being going that long again. I miss this game!
The drives were off in the beginning and again at the start of the back nine, but I was able to rein it in and get some nice straight drives after the 11th hole. On the 11th, I got some nice distance, but ended up throwing the drive to 12’s tee. Not good. :/
My approach shots were better, but I still had some that were either way too short or came in too hot and shot behind the basket. Many of them were spot on, though, and brought me close enough to close the pars.
My putts were far better than I would have expected given how long I’ve been away from the game. Made quite a few that were in the 15-20 foot range. I think one or two that were even farther.
There is definitely room for improvement and improve I will. I’m going to try to get in at least one round per week until the weather turns. Maybe even two.
To top off the day, it was absolutely beautiful outside. Just about 70° with a slight breeze. Couldn’t have asked for better weather. The sun was shining. The birds were singing. I just wish MY birds were singing. Pars are nice, but bogeys (and even more so, double-bogeys) really suck. Time will improve my game!
NICE! It IS a gorgeous day.
