There it is... first ever win! Red, White and Blue Shootout at Bandemer Park in Ann Arbor. $35 payout and I took down the ace pool in a throw off for $80. All around, I'd say it's a good day.

First PDGA win. I also hit my first ace in 5 freaking years during this tournament.

Gonna have to happily move up to Open next year (where I would have finished third this year). Pretty nice improvement after my April nightmare in Montana.

I played around with the TOBU Charge, PDGA's first trackable disc on Monday... Made some videos and wrote a blog post about it if anyone is interested in seeing what it looks like: 
In January 2015, TOBU announced a crowdfunding endeavor via their Kickstarter campaign in order to release the first PDGA approved disc with built in electronics. Their campaign was successful, and...

Ya, to be honest it might be different in a real game situation though. Where I was testing was semi-close to a fairly busy road, and I was trying to manage 2 cell phones, and my 8 year old at the same time. I could certainly hear the beep, but with everything going on I was not able to use it effectively to track the disc. On a course away from a 4 lane road at the end of 5:00 traffic, it might be different.

Course Design  - 
 
As part of the lease, the city will maintain and improve the property. Plans call for paving over heavily overgrown and deteriorating golf cart paths around the park's perimeter. The new paths will be used as fitness trails, and a disc golf course is also on the drawing board. Drainage improvement projects will likely be part of long-term goals as well.
A once overgrown, former golf course in the Lake Forest subdivision is being transformed into a new 33-acre city park in Daphne.

I wonder why there is a "deaf disc golf championship".  Why wouldn't these players just play in the regular disc golf championships?  Is hearing vital to your ability to play? 

The winner, Fletch Kuehne shot 23 under par; it seems like he would be competitive in non-deaf professional golf .. Or am I just wrong for thinking like this?

“As you an see from the numbers of people here this is huge,” said Manchester Chief of Parks Don Pinard. “It’s massive throughout the country and working its way to New England. People of all ranges of abilities and all ages can play. It doesn’t cost anything to be here — just pick up some discs, come out here and start throwing. This is right up there with what parks are supposed to be doing — providing affordable recreation for the citizens.”

Manchester, NH
About 70 people attended a ceremonial ribbon-cutting held last night at The Hollows, the city's municipally-owned disc golf course constructed along a span of about 70 acres of heavily wooded land adjacent to the Brown and Mitchell Park and the Pine Grove Cemetery, just east of the Merrimack River.

Will Rogers DGC is scheduled to be drastically changed and/or removed by the Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Department in 2015 to expand the swimming pool and the tennis center.  There are very few park amenities that are free and cater to people aged 4 to 90, and this DGC is used by thousands each month who fall into this age range.
Will Rogers Disc Golf Course, which was the second course installed in the state of Oklahoma, was co-designed in 1978 by "Steady" Ed Headrick, an employee of Wham-o, Inc.  "Steady" invented the Frisbee™ and disc golf.  He was personally asked to design the disc golf course (DGC) at Will Rogers Park in Oklahoma City and was transported here for the installation.  This DGC is one of the nation's oldest courses and is still almost in its original co...

"It may be elitist, and perhaps that's what golf needs. Let golf be elitist. When I say 'aspire,' that's a positive word. Let people work hard and aspire to some day be able to play golf. To afford to play it. They're trying to teach golf to people who will never be able to really play it. They're trying too hard. Because of the expense of playing, and the land needed, golf is never going to be basketball, where all you need is a court."

Thus, I play disc golf.

Actually, Pryde, Sackville’s manager of recreation programs and special events, says the game has proven popular in other communities and expects it will find success here. An 18-hole course will be developed in the park, making use of existing land while offering plenty of challenges, mainly by leaving trees in the fairways. Each hole will measure between 150 and 200 feet and $9,000 has been budgeted for the development, which will see an official opening on July.

Of course for all the disc golf enthusiasts out there, it's also known as an S-tunnel shot with a Lucid Enforcer, which sounds way, way cooler.

NBC Golf carried the video, too.

The Grandview Rotary Club held a disc golf scramble tournament at Grandview’s Dykstra Park this past Saturday. Three teams competed in the event, which is basically golf with Frisbees. Here, at right, team leader Mike Carpenter tosses the disc on a par-3 hole. After completing the tournament, Jan McDonald (above) takes a picture of Tom Miller standing next to the “hole” while Rick Smith watches.
