Lost discs can at least make for good stories

I will first admit that I am not as regular of a disc golfer as I would like to be. That’s the crappy part about not having a good course within 1:20 of you.

Still, I’ve traveled around and played several good and tough courses.

Through all of that, I’ve never (knock on wood) lost a disc.

There have been times I should have lost a disc and somehow found it. I’ve actually almost given up on looking for it before I stumbled across it and found it.

I’m sure, at some point, I’ll join the group of people who have lost discs. I’ll just hope it’s not one of my favorites!

A couple of weeks ago, during our weekly poll, we asked people about their best lost disc stories. And with that, we’re going to give a disc out to the best story as decided by members of our staff.

I might only like certain weather situations, but many others seem to see it differently!

A total of 72 players voted in this week’s poll and of that group, 50 percent (36 votes) chose that they play in any weather.

That was followed by “A drizzle is fine, but not a rainstorm,” which drew 25 percent (18 votes) and was followed by “That’s what they make umbrellas and rain gear for!” (10  percent/7 votes).

“Sunshine only for me” was fourth with four votes (6 percent) and “Cold or heat is fine, but nothing else” rounded out the top-5 with three votes (4 percent).
