Many of you may think of this as a stark contrast to regular “stroke play” rounds of disc golf where it is in your best interest to play the course and NOT your opponent — and you would be right. While this article could bounce back and forth between the differences in playing match play and stroke play, we decided to take a deeper look at my personal favorite format of match play. We will follow up in the upcoming weeks with an article about stroke play, but for now, let’s take a look at the wildly entertaining format!
In stroke play, you can’t control how others are playing. It’s in your best interest to keep your head down and scratch and claw for every stroke you can — not worrying about the players in your group, or what other scores have been posted earlier in the day. Match play, on the other hand, is completely different. The sole focus of your round is to beat one guy — your opponent. Your score at the end of the round doesn’t matter, your match does. If you take a 6 on a hole and your opponent takes an 8, you should care less that you just made a triple bogey — you won the hole; now its time to put that hole behind you and focus on the next one.Read the blog it its entirety, here.
Thank you Vibram Disc Golf! We are giving away the Lace on our Encompass Life Facebook page this Friday, January 4th, Don’t miss it!
New to stores, November 23rd, 2012, the Lace is Vibram Disc Golf’s first long distance driver. It is a very fast and stable long distance driver. It is beefy enough to handle the wind and yet does not need insane power to get way down the fairway. The Lace is like a faster Trak with a ton more glide thrown in as a bonus.
Get ready to Lace one down the fairway – way down the fairway! Like our Encompass Life Facebook page, and you will have a chance to become a WINNER this Friday. Contest rules will be posted on our site Thursday, January 3rd, so tell your friends!

The Vibram Obex – faster than a speeding bullet, stronger than a freight train, more witty than Salma Hayek, and coming to Vibram Pinnacle Retailers on June 28th!
The Obex is an overstable midrange which complements the stable Vibram Ibex. Offering a smooth, natural release, this disc loves a headwind and has a surprisingly long glide for an overstable disc. If you need to guarantee your disc does not fade, reach for the Obex. Available in X-Link and X-Link Firm compounds. With the Ibex and Obex mids, Vibram has got your approach game covered.
I got together the other day with the famous Derek Hastings to shoot a video for the release of the Obex. The Obex is, well, instead of me typing about it how about you just check out this video?
