In the quest to simplify the game, RattlingChains.com members set out to figure out how playing with one disc would turn out.
Would it be better? Worse? Harder? Easier?
The results were actually quite interesting.
And in the end, it seems it might be something to help focus on the game a bit more. So we talk and ask about one disc. One round. How would you play it?
Head over to RattlingChains, check out the story and let us know what you would do!
We are curious… what do you think is the Best Overstable Fairway Driver mold?
Get your opinion in before 4/07/2012.
Not trying to influence the outcome of this little exercise, but may I suggest…
Look for us at White during Bowling Green this year.
If you run Tourneys back home or run a Disc Golf Club please make sure you introduce yourself to Miles before you head out of town. Ask him about our Environmentally Savvy Players Pack bags…
Good Luck to everyone, we wish you all your personal bests!

I woke up this morning to a txt from a friend letting me know leagues here are starting. I can’t wait, been sitting around all winter just sewing and not getting out to play at all. It’s really starting to get boring. but starting tonight and within a few weeks after that I’ll have monday night leagues and wednesday night leagues to play, like I said – I can’t wait!
And in other news…. I’m gonna be starting on Simians again here in a week or so. I’m start getting caught up on the 30 that have all been pre-ordered so hopefully those will be all done and shipped in about a month or so…

I am so excited about the Clash, my first real big tournament of the year. There are 9 advanced ladies that I had the honor of being a part of. They are all great, so I knew going into this one that I had to shoot great and stay strong all the way through. I got to play with Rachael Hudson and Michelle Horn the first round, then moved to the lead card and played with Sara Nicholson, Sue Smith & Heather Damron for round 2. I stayed on the lead card for the last two rounds along with Sara N., Heather D. and Michelle Horn.
Round 1 was at Nevin disc golf course and it is one of the most challenging courses in Charlotte. It is very long and heavily wooded. Overall I did well on this course. I had a couple holes I wish I could redo, but that’s okay. I shot a 73, which put me in 2nd place, out of 1st by 3. Trees happened, especially hole #5, where I couldn’t seem to find the fairway. My putting and approaching were both good. My round rating was 889, so that was a good start. I did get a birdie on hole 11. And I had a great card: Michelle Horn and Racheal Hudson.
Round 2 was at Hornet’s Nest, my home course. This started off on a very bad note. We are supposed to have 1 hour for lunch between rounds and it was not, so Stephanie Miller and I have to run (with all our gear) to our holes which were as far away as possible to start. We barely make it, but now I am totally whipped before I start. It took me two holes to settle down. But once I did, I did well. I shot a 65, rated 902 round, the best in adv. women. I got a birdie on hole 9. I was on the lead card and played with Sara, Sue and Heather. We had a rain delay for about 30 min, but were able to finish the course out before dark. So after Hornet’s Nest I was tied for 1st place with Sara Nicholson.
New RattlingChains writer Jack Trageser brings his views and thoughts from more than two decades of disc golf to the blog. In his first post, he introduces himself and talks about things he’ll bring to the site, including instruction posts on how to improve and bring more fun into your disc golf game.
Trageser, who runs School of Disc Golf, will be writing on a regular basis for Rattling Chains.
Writer Steve Hill has also joined the Rattling Chains crew and the announcement of the two new writers ran on the blog last night.
April Fools Doubles 6 is going down this weekend, do you have a partner yet?
