is it time?

Haven't played since my dismal performance in Rockwall.
 I quit drinking, not that it had anything to do with it, but it can't hurt .
Been eating right also, but have not been playing any disc or any other exercise.
 Mentally I'm in a much better place than I was then though.
 I'll get out this weekend and see how it goes I guess. need to mow the lawn and get over to moms to fix her computer too , but there is plenty of time and it's supposed to be really nice weather this weekend.
 Let's get outside!!

not much going on.

havent played since the titledisc tournament. I wore my shirt today though!  haha. it is a nice shirt.
 been busy at work and didnt feel like getting out much last weekend. If the weather holds up  I'll try and go play the mini at Vet this Sunday, and possibly the team visionforce qualifier on Saturday or later Sunday.
 Wanna throw that new Ape some more.

this weekend

well.. I have a new disc ( the ape) that I only threw a few times last weekend to still work on, and I changed some discs in my bag so some more experimenting to do.
 but I have some health issues including an ear infection so I'm not sure if I'll play the sunday mini or not.
 I may head out to Vet tomorrow after mowing the lawn and see whats up.
 It's been freaking crazy windy around here in DFW also.  the awning was blown off our building today at max mechanical so.... yeah.. it's been windy as *&%!!

 all I know is I need to practice and possibly change my putting style  completely.
 which would be a daunting thought had I not already switched to a straddle putt a few years ago.

 everything I have ever read tells me to choose whatever putting style works for me and that is comfortable.
 but what if I'm not comfortable with the two most basic putting styles there are?

 guess it's time to buy another practice basket .

Rockwall results. ugh...

well, I finished tied for 25'th  out of 33 rec field players.
 pretty crappy.
 not sure what was wrong. I was playing angry maybe. even though I had fun and it was great to see some friends that I really only see at Mini's or tournaments. disc golf truly is a community.
 on the up-side... I went out friday and played doubles with Duane and we got second place. only missing tieing for first by 1 stroke. so we got a little plastic for that effort.
 I got a cool titledisc shirt as well.
 I may have an ear infection , so maybe that factored in?  I don't know.  I just played terrible.
 and this one guy who was on my first 2 cards was really annoying.
 I just couldnt seem to focus at all.
 Sunday wasn't much better, but at least I had fun and had 2 cool guys Ive played with before on my card.
 I'm gonna play the mini @ Vet this sunday and see if it was an anomaly or has my ability just gone out the window completely?

 ooh.. and Avery and Val and Nate backed out of the tournament at the last second ( top pro players)
 also thanks to Josh and Diedre and the volunteers. Titledisc always does a great job with the tournaments. regardless of my finish... I'll keep coming back as long as I'm having fun.

Doubles!!Grape Ape!!

My new Innova APE might show up this afternoon. It would be cool so I could throw it tomorrow a bit.

and even though I wasnt going to play doubles after the injuries I have had in the past right before a tournament... Duane needed a partner and I want to get out of work and go play disc golf so.....

 off I go!!!
 Titledisc this weekend baby!!

3 days....

till Rockwall!!!
I pulled a muscle or sprained something in my left arm  over the weekend. starting to feel better so hopefully it wont hurt this weekend. gotta lift my bag  with my left arm!
I had to go fix peoples computers all day yesterday so I'm going to  go practice putting for lunch today, and then some more after work.
 and then I'll practice more tomorrow and friday.
 hopefully that will help.
 can't hurt.
It's starting to become all I think about.

lost weekend...

Went out to Garland and tried to follow the course as best I could since it's been so long since I was out there. I'll try and get out there one more time before the tournament next week.

Played the mini at Veterans Sunday morning and I just plain played terrible. It wasnt the wind so much as I just sucked. gripped lock too  many times and missed putts left and right.
 I'm going to try and practice putting every day this week so I won't do as horribly next weekend.
 I'm getting excited regardless.
