Commentaries

Debbie's Notes:

There were four women playing in this tournament and we all played together on the same card, two adv and two interm. Bob was actually in this tournament too. He did not do so well, but he kicked but the night before in warm-up!! What’s up with that?!?

I was actually playing up against Sarah Nicolson, aaaggghhh. She is very good and won the first tournament (Crooked Creek Classic) that I was in. I shot well the first round with a 57 (+3) and Sarah shot at 61, wow I’m beating Sarah!! But I knew she would do everything she could to come back and she DID!! She shot a 52; second round and I shot a 55! I beat Sarah, wow. This really gave me confidence that I am truly an advanced women’s player.

With about four holes left Sarah tied me. The next two we both made par. The second to last hole (actually Timmons #1) Sarah shot first, not her best drive, but her approach was right next to the basket (for par). My first shot landed about 5 feet down from the basket (on a hill). It took my breath away! I got in front of the basket, having to shoot up to take the lead and sank my putt! The last hole was the island hole, my shot nearly rolled off the island into the creek, but somehow it stayed on. Sarah also shot safely on the island and was about 20 feet away. I was behind a tree (which stopped my disc from going into the creek). I made the 1st second shot and missed landing right next to the basket. It was all up to Sarah now. She had to go for the putt to tie, but she missed slightly right and we both made par on the last hole. I beat her by only 1 stroke! I guess I can play under pressure! Whew.

I got a cool UNC/Strange Disc Sports shirt and a new Rattler & Comet as winnings. Awesome tournament, too bad it wasn’t a PDGA event.

Bob's Notes:

I've been a part of 2 StrangeDisc Tour events... both of them at Timmons Park (which is among my favorite courses) in Greenville, SC. The guys on my card both rounds were great to play with, and the StrangeDisc crew was wonderful as always.

Even though I enjoyed my experience in this tournament, there were 2 factors that greatly affected my play, and any hope of really competing within my division. Firstly, as anyone who knows me is aware, I am a horrible morning person... the earlier I wake up in a day, the worse I feel throughout the day. I woke really early on this morning and never gained enough strength/energy to function properly, much less compete in a tournament. Secondly, I had overworked/injured my throwing arm the day before. Although I was still able to complete the tournament, it was clearly affecting my drives. There'll always be excuses that can be made and I hate assigning poor play to such excuses, but there may be something to these as I shot a -8 on this same course/layout the day before, but shot a +7 in round 1.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed playing in an event with Debbie and look forward to doing so again sometime in the future. I was also really proud of how well Debbie handled herself against such a strong opponent who was shooting a very solid 2nd round.
