Introducing the 2012 Maiden Shade Fall
Sept. 2nd thru Oct 7th 2012.
JOLF is the combination of jogging and the sport of disc golf, played on the course where it was born at Maiden Shade Disc Golf Morristown Mn. Created by long time Maiden Rock Discers, it’s a great way to get a work out and have fun with a game of disc golf all at the same time.
This weekend a friend and I were exploring some courses in my area, we started at Bassett Creek Park. It was not too difficult, but I didn't really mind that the weather and wind was an added factor into the difficulty. Our next stop was going to be Wirth Par 3 in Golden Valley, only to get there and find that they were closed for the winter. From what I could tell the course looked well taken care of and mapped out. My question here is I was wondering if someone would share their opinion…Continue

(If you're new to reading these blogs from me please remember that these are disc golf re-writes of previously written- mental game of ball golf books that I've founr interesting or helpful. Most of my posts have been from D. Morley from a 1970's book he wrote.)…Continue

To some extent the disc golfer is always on stage, but on the tee pad s/he is under the full force of the spotlight. Standing on the tee is, indeed, not like being on a real stage- a very frightening experience for most people. The tee pad is surrounded by an audience, their silence confirming their fixed attention upon every move of the…Continue

Here is interesting driving phenomenon: have you ever noticed the people who frequently drive erratically seem to lose their disc more easily than good players who only occasionally throw bad shots? You would think the consistently bad driver would actually be skillful in finding their disc, because s/he has more practice in locating their disc…Continue

I also may or may not beileive in 100% of their writing. It's something I love to do and I'm just forwarding it on to the readers of my…Continue

The angry golfer may start out in a perfectly equable mood. If all goes well for the first three or four holes, you may think they’re one of the nicest, most stable people you’ve ever played with. But, as the game progresses, and if you’re perceptive, you will begin to notice a gradual mounting of tension. If never reaches the shaking palsy…Continue

The disc golfer does not need a college course in the function and working of the mind in order to use it effectively. But a player should understand some of the mind’s fundamental operations, and certainly s/he should know how to apply that knowledge to disc golf.…Continue

At the Sundog in Hastings I was faced with the question that most of us deal with multiple times on the course. Risk vs. Reward. I wasn’t in a great spot -up against the woods on the right side of the sidewalk on Hole 13. I had the choice to shoot through the small opening on a direct line to the basket and land with an easy drop-in putt, but risking hitting junk…Continue
Many players fail to recognize that disc golf is, in the final analysis, essentially a game played between him/herself and the course. If more people would grasp this, they would avoid a lot of mental pitfalls. However, although this is a basic truth, on a more obvious level the disc golfer is also competing directly against other people and…Continue
