By far one of the best books I have read about Golf and Life. I read the bulk of this book while lounging in a hammock stretched out over The Grand Canyon. It was mystical to say the least....
I really had a moment when I ran across this book in the Goodwill in my local hometown... the title quite took me by surprise... what Shivas Irons talks and teaches is why I play golf... it's not just a game, it is my way of life... and I love that the book is about ball golf, of course, but that it translates seamlessly to disc golf... I have tried and tried to see the auras around my discs and the pins (my home course, being private and in my front yard, is not equipped with baskets... yet ) but it hasn't quite happened... almost, maybe a couple times...
peace threw disc golf,

Had my personal best round at Riverside in Sumner, Wa the other day... -9 on the Red(shortest) course-- missed a few of the super easy short lefty holes and missed a few birds inside the circle coming down the stretch. -9 is my pb at Lakewood, North Park, and now Riverside-- I'd really like to get to double digits.
Don't just walk past that candy wrapper on the fairway-- I know you saw it!
Grabbed a new personal best out at Steilacoom today, this time on the pro 27/18 course. I shot a -1 for the Pro 18 with 4 birdies and 3 bogeys, and no missed putts in the circle (quite possibly a first) and for the extra 9 holes that make up the 27 I shot all pars. The round itself wasn't particularly spectacular but I've been trying to break par there for a while. Now I just have to match that on the NW course.
I shot a 59 Today @ Horning's Hideout - Meadow Ridge! 3 birds and three Bogies and I beat My recent PB by 8 strokes! I think this could be the best round I've EVER played. This new course is just epic. This made my day...my year for that matter, and now I can rest easy while it storms this week.
