My Actifit Report Card: September 18 2023
My friends and I played a difficult eighteen-hole disc golf course today. I ended up with the win with a +14. Other scores were: +19, +28, and +38.
It was a good round, and conditions were pretty nice for most of it, although it got a bit windy towards the end. I think we were all still a bit tired from the weekend tournament round. That kind of playing is more difficult.
My friend lost a disc on hole seventeen. It was really windy, and we were all a bit hesitant as to how to make the throw. I threw first off the tee and made a short forehand placement throw that almost missed the mando. Considering my lack of forehand skills, I was happy with the throw, although I ended up with a double bogey on the hole. My friend threw second and under commited the power on a backhand throw, and the disc hyzered out to the left into the thorn bushes and swamp. We all looked for it for some time but could not find it. He had to take another throw off the tee and ended up with a triple bogey.
Both a forehand and backhand can be very difficult in these windy conditions. I chose to throw a very stable control driver disc on a forehand hyzer so as not to expose the underside of the disc to the crosswind. It is a safer play but harder to make par on the hole. I have in the past had faster distance drivers turn and ride the wind way out into the swamp, never to be seen again.
