My tournament tips... and like Rich I never follow them all !. Relax - All pressure is self inflicted, take your time, deep steady breaths 2. Play your own game - know what you can and can't do, don't try a shot just because it worked for someone else, by all means make a note of the shot and try it...

You know Charlie, you could always have a Whitcombe song as well. This one was contributed by Dan Massey at The breaker

Any news on which holes we're going to be playing? Assuming there's no force majeur (sp?) or acts of God that make us pay 27's again (not that I'd mind, I really enjoyed the big rounds!) If you're referring to the excuse used to avoid charges by our our shipping companies when they are late, it has...

Re: Tips - me?

Buy a whole bag of new discs just before a tournament and throw them for the first time in the first round? I liked that one :wink: (Johnny Potts probably did too.)
