So it's like golf but for cool people is the vibe I'm getting here.

Your vibe meter is calibrated correctly... until I walk out onto the tee pad and perform my pre-throw routine.

These compilation all-shots from last year are kinda neat. Two of my favorites on the Pro Tour:

Last night was the... well, last night of putting leagues out at BIBCO. I had been solid all night and needed one last putt to win the Hot Putter prize for the evening after making every single putt up to that point. I lined it up as the crowd behind me went silent knowing this would be it. I threw. It felt like slow motion as my disc sailed through the evening air, thick with anticipation and stale beer. It was headed right for the basket, tracking like an archers arrow, then the realization hit me. It was too high and so was I. It doinked off of the top band and skidded across the floor. Oh well. We won the round and I had a blast. So dam close though.

Spoiler for graphic for dramatic effect:


It's gonna be a hell of a tournament season. My first tournament of many this year is this weekend, and it's a 2 day event. I have early morning tee times, so after my round on Saturday I'll be heading over to the new pro level course to help out a bit, then I'll whisk away to BIBCO for the Putting Leagues wrap-up party. I'm already getting inundated with artwork requests too. The Hyde Park TD was there last night and had my ear pretty much the entire evening talking about how my logo will be presented to some very influential people. Exciting stuff. The Basket Cases head honcho already has me creating stuff for his new home course too, and I've already completed a Players Guide for a tournament to benefit the Will County Humane Society.

I do like to keep busy.

I tied for 7th place this last weekend. Not too bad I guess, but my putting was terrible. Ugh. I need to work on my putz.

I hung out with a friend after my final round yesterday and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the pro's who always have the prime time tee times after the old dudes like me. My friends daughter happens to be a photographer and has covered many major disc golf events, so we got to talking and she had mentioned that she's doing a story on the history of the Illinois State Disc Golf Championships. I mentioned to her that some of my artwork had been used for the 2003 stamped merchandise, which 3 of the discs are now curated at the Flying Disc Museum in Arizona, and she wants to do a small feature on that. Hoo boy.

So, early 1st round on Sat, then the Putting League Wrap-Up Party, then another early tournament round on Sun and more walking than I usually do. I'm pooped, but the band at the Wrap-Up Party was fairly decent. They managed to turn Foghat's Slow Ride into a jam band tune and did quite a few other decent numbers. I also got out to an old Irish bar on Friday to listen to an Irish band that doesn't play Irish music. They did play some Little Feat though, so that was nice. What a weekend. I need another weekend to recover from it.

The Texas State DGC's are under way with the FPO card, but you can't watch it live unless you're subbed to DGN, so here's a practice round at the Thorn course:
