2 Weeks Without Play
Posted by randomtiz
Finally got a chance this past Wednesday—after 2 long and busy weeks—to get in a full round after work. Not knowing how my outcome of the round would soon be, I didn’t care; I was too pumped! With very little traffic there, I made it to Oregon Park just shy of 20 minutes (Normally with rush hour traffic it’s closer to half hour). Already in a good mood, I was pleasantly surprised at how deserted the disc golf course was as I pulled up. Must have been the heat, and that I can attest to. Leaving straight from work, I was left to play in what I currently had on. With the sun still high, 94° heat, humidity, double tshirts on, tight fitting jeans and no water supply…it was almost too much to handle. But whatever, I’ll survive an hour right?
|Dripping sweat by Hole #2, I knew it was going to be an interesting round with this heat. I looked like one of those rotating sprinkler heads as I wound up and threw—sweat slinging off at every angle. Awesome, I’m watering the course as I play. Hole #7, to me, is by far the hardest. It’s probably around 200ft, but it’s a long straight-away with a very narrow flight path. I think I’ve only achieved par on this hole once in the some odd 30 times I’ve played this course. The sunset pic to the right is for my bogey shot on #7. Of course this is after my drive careened off course after hitting three trees like some trick shot in bumper pool. Indeed I did end up bogeying a few, but those were later complimented with several birdies—especially #17 and 18. I finished out +1. Not bad for two weeks off!|
Then had the chance to play again yesterday, heck yea! We took to the course for a round of Oregon Park fun. Fun times as always, Justin did end up taking the win with 3 strokes ahead. I slipped and finished +6—much what I was expecting to score the prior day. We did rock our new Dogleg Tees as well! The pic on the left is Justin on the teebox of #13 with his Dogleg tee. I love how the shirts turned out and a great way to get the name out there. We even had a few people yesterday ask us about it, sweet!
