Headed to Tim E's private Green Acres Disc Golf Course for a couple of rounds of Disc Golf in the early morning. Tim strikes a Michael Jackson pose in honor of the recent passing of the King of Pop.

During the first round, Side Arm Mike got an Ace on the first hole on the "Cubby Trap" Disc Golf Target with a fore hand drive deflection off of a tree and into the basket. This was the first time Mike has thrown at this target. Nice shot Mike!

We played one more round and then I headed to work.

Tuesday Ball Golf at Lakewood Country Club Golf Course

Cubby, Jimmy, and Pete. (Bob not in picture)

Headed to Lakewood Country Club Golf Course for a round of Ball Golf with my friend Pete and his friend Jimmy and his friend Bob. I was happy to shoot a 98 as this is the first time I have played a Par 72 course in about 10 years and my third round this year. Hitting a bucket of balls before the round helped. Looks like I will be playing Ball Golf regularly on Tuesdays.

Headed to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my two of my three daughters for a round of Disc Golf at Sedgley Woods.

Jennifer won over Jessica by one hole in match play. I shot a 5 down with some close ace runs. Jennifer, my oldest, turns 27 on the 18th of June. Happy Birthday Jenny!

After the round we headed to Citizens Bank Park in Philly to see the Phillies play the Blue Jays. It rained during the game but we stayed dry in Asher's Chocolates Suite. The Blue jays scored lots of runs in the first inning and the Phillies did not come back.

Here is our host, Mike from Asher's Chocolates.

The scoreboard tells the story.

One from the CDGW mail bag

I get lots of e-mails and comments and personal messages from my blog posts and YOUTUBE videos. I try to respond to everyone that has a question or comment for me unless it is a negative item and those I just ignore. I recently received a private message through my YOUTUBE account that I would like to share with my Blog readers. I have permission from the person that sent this message to share it with you. I am sharing this message because it was kind, appreciative and thoughtful and it also is some great feedback for me on the impact that my Blog and YOUTUBE videos have on some nice people out there.

Here is the message I received from Brandon Stephens:

First off....... I had never even heard of disc golf until I ran across a video of you on youtube. I watched every one of your videos and fell in love with the sport before i even had thrown a disc. And whats crazy is that theres a 9 hole disc golf course in the park in my neighborhood. Had never known what the baskets were used for. Its awesome man, me and my friends play every day. And its like the course is ours because not many people know about this little 9 hole course. I started playing in February and have almost played every day since i started. Its the most addicting sport ive ever played. And I have a course in my neighborhood so that makes it even better. Anyway, I started playing mini's in the end of April. And thanks to you I hit my first ace on a forearm skip to win the ace pot of $765.00. That was probably the biggest rush I have ever had. And its all thanks to you. I just thought I would tell you how grateful I am for the videos you post. Thanks for all the knowledge you put out there. I hope one day I can hit the lottery and can take a trip to play along side with you. Thanks,

Brandon Stephens

I sent Brandon a personal response and would like to thank him and everyone else out there that has sent me positive feedback. I am glad to be doing my little part in helping promote the sport and glad to be adding motivation for others out there in their passion for the Disc Golf.

BTW Brandon, I remember how sweet my first Ace was, I can just imagine how sweet yours was hitting an Ace pot for $765.00!!!!!!!! I can't imagine it getting any better than that!

Tuesday Disc Golf at Rutgers and Ball Golf at Forge Pond

After closing the shop around Midnight on Tuesday, I headed up to Rutgers for some Night Disc Golf. I got four Aces before heading home. The first Ace was on hole 12. I threw a Buzzz right between the center two guardian trees for the Ace. I don't think anyone has Aced this hole by hitting this route. I chained out of the target last year through this route. This was one of my coolest (and straightest)shots for an Ace.

I felt great and figured if I just spent the rest of the day playing that I would definately have a shot at breaking my peresonal best of 6 aces in a day but decided to head home for some sleep. I got home at 5AM. Would there be a chance for more Disc Golf today?

I got up at 6AM and went back to bed at 10 AM. After a little sleep, here I am with my friend Pete during our round of Ball Golf. We had a 12:20 PM tee time at Forge Pond Golf Course in Brick, NJ. I shaved 13 strokes off of the round I shot at this course last week. After Ball Golf I called it a day and headed home. Pete gave me a great package deal on a top of the line Taylor Made Driver, 3 Wood, and 7 Wood. I even got me a county Golf ID card today as I will probably be playing on Tuesdays and the county card will save me some money on my greens fees.
