We used to disc all the time! I have about 15 discs that I carry with me when I play. I probably couldn't use them like I used to, but there were the really broken in ones that you knew would turn hard right and some newer ones that you could keep on a straight edge all the way to the basket and you always have to have at least one roller....and ALWAYS a putter.Our home course was 19 holes and all the holes were par 3's. The really good guys can shoot 10 - 15 under. The best I ever did was 12 under, but the last time I went I shot a 3 over, so I guess I'm not as good as I used to be.One tip for throwing straighter - pretend like you are smacking a midget and try to get some snap at the end of the throw.
There was madness in any direction, at any hour…You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning…. And that, I think, was the handle-that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting-on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave….So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark-that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.
