Re: Hyzer Cup 2011 - 2012 - 1st leg

Is that it then. Record attendance and no smack talk. I was looking forward to some blind confidence.

You are right charlie, incredibly unlucky
With Oz in the equation I think we'll be OK.

Re: New Disc Golf Networking site

Just having a look round the forum and thought I should update this. I took the development of this off line and onto my development environment. I don't want to discuss in detail why I did that in this public forum but if you're interested, ask me in person. Having done that I got really busy again...

Re: New Disc Golf Networking site

Hello beta testers, It has been a while, I got really busy doing other things but have, this week, been able to take a look at the only major bug I had left. The Clubs and Courses membership system now works properly and club (or course) members can upload images and videos (if permitted by the club...

I think the OP misses two important points. Firstly, as pointed out by Tom, the stats assume the OBs were caused by missing the long shot. Further to that it assumes that all the 3s were due to laying up (Yes I missed a 5 foot putt) In practice I missed the short island 5 times out of 5 and hit the ...

I have read this thread with interest. I used to think it was unreasonable for a club or a TD to come away from a tourney with a profit. As I have become older, wiser and perhaps since I have become self employed I have realized something. That point of view is, in effect, communism. Of course it is...

No, concrete really only works when it is warm and dry. Some courses in Finland had concrete but pretty much all are changing for the artificial grass pads. They are by far the best all-round tee solution and work in every weather. Funny detail, I have seen hundreds if not thousands of disc golfers...

I would pay the extra and go for these http://www.walkoutdoors.com/product_info.php?prod=987 They look very well constructed and if Jesters lasted 7 years, that's pretty good!

Yep! High end Karrimors are pretty good. I think you'll be looking at over £100 for a good pair 5 years later though. Serious thread drift from tee pads to shoes but while we are on the subject. DO NOT buy Peter Storm boots. They are millets own brand and I got some for Xmas a couple of years ago, t...

In my experience spending £100+ on a pair of boots means your boots will be water proof and last until the soul is worn off. Spending £50 on boot's gets you boots that are no more water proof than a paper bag and last maybe 10 sessions of getting soaked and drying out before they rot and fall apart.
