I got 16th in a field of 32 and a buttload of points!! My feet also stayed dry ALL DAY because of Randy Sun @randysunsports Big shoutout to my fellow card players Fredrick, Peter, and Moises you are awesome. Thank you Moises for the feedback and advice I will make sure to focus more on that issue you brought to my attention.
The weather was crappy but LoCo Disc Golf Club stayed focused and got did it for us. It was ugly, muddy, and wet but I (we) got to play disc golf some some fantastic people. This is a tough course and in these conditions even tougher. This was only my second time ever playing this course so I’m happy that I did not send my game completely into the toilet. I’m also happy that now have enough points to get an invite to the 2024 Masters, which was one of my goals for 2023.
I learned a lot from this one and will be making some adjustments to my bag and routine because of what I took away from this one Nothing major regarding form but I’ll be focused on getting the right plastic in my hands and hitting my release points, which I missed way too much of this weekend. On the last two holes, I discovered a new putting option and will begin applying it immediately to my game. I don’t think I should change my style but I really liked the adjustment, but just made it too late in this game.
Bluechip Technologies is excited to present the Twelfth Annual LoCo Open. More details to come. We’re looking to create a spectacle!

* I play the MA3 class instead of MA50 because it allows me to play against a larger group of players. I will advance to MA2 and beyond as time goes on. Going up against these younger people makes us old guys work harder. It is tough because some of these kids are really good.
