The King of The “Pink Ace”?

Posted in Humor / Comics, Uncategorized, Useless Information with tags on August 12, 2010 by morleyfieldsd

We all know a few disc golfers who “pad” their ace stats by camping on hole #1 short at Morley. Bless their hearts.

Our investigative team’s extensive research uncovered the term for this. It is called a “Pink Ace” or a “Cubby Ace”. The trusted internet defines this as follows a) an ace where you sit at a short hole and empty your bag trying for an ace, preferably with a camera running or  b) an ace on a hole you could nail with a beach Frisbee. Both seem fitting.

"Cubby"

Who is this man and what has Carl “Cubby” Cubbedge done to deserve this term?

We’ll provide these links and let you decide if he deserves the title “King of the Pink Ace”.

Ten Annoying Things #8: “Tossers”

Posted in Disc Golf Lingo, Humor / Comics, Useless Information on August 5, 2010 by morleyfieldsd

noun (adj).  tó-su(r) - 
any disc golfer having not earned the right to empty their bag on hole #19 at Morley (against course etiquette anyway). This “right” is set aside for those that actually possess the physical ability to reach (“park”) or surpass the current pin position(s) on hole #19 with their drives.

“Tossers” will confuse most of the following attributes as justification to empty their bag…
- Many “play bands” on their quad-straps
- Their tee shot (distance in feet) = (their weight) +15ft
- A full Innova Competition bag or larger
- “Brand spankin new” discs
- Own one or more Discraft Nuke(s)
- Are wearing a Huk-Lab or DD hat or shirt

(Now so no one takes offense, this writer can 1) barely out throw his weight 2) has 2 new Innova Destroyers and 3) owns a Huk-Lab tek-dry shirt. I know my place.)

If you are still not sure if you are a “Tosser” listen for feedback. If you hear “WOWs! after your throws,  you’re good to go. If there is silence or mumbling coming from behind as you walk of the pad, you probably are a “Tosser”.

(note: file under humor / laugh at yourself once in a while)

Ten Annoying Things #9 – “Herding”

Posted in Editorial, Humor / Comics with tags on July 27, 2010 by morleyfieldsd

Herding is a natural animal/human trait.  In the “disc-golfer” species it presents itself as follows… Tim, Tom, Terry, Tracy, Ted and Kevin all throw from the teepad. Kevin throws a typical very short shot, maybe 75 feet off the teepad. ALL of Kevin’s friends laugh and joke as they ALL walk (usually slowly) to Kevin’s disc where they huddle and witness another short throw. Now ALL of the players walk over to Tim’s disc, still joking with Kevin about his lack of apparant lack of athleticism. ALL of the players stand and watch Tim’s throw, then ALL walk over to Ted’s, ALL over to Kevin’s again, ALL move over to Terry’s, on and on and on, multiply by 19 holes… insanity for the group(s) behind!

Disc Golf “Rule-Of-Thumb”… after everyone has thrown EACH player should walk to THEIR disc. The furthest player away from the basket is the first to throw. The next furthest should soon after throw, next furthest, and so on.If you have a large or slow group Disc Golf’s “ROT” is to always let smaller groups play through.

Have fun but realize there are many other people behind also waiting to have a good time. Morley Field is one of the highest volume played courses in the world. Let’s all do our part to ensure EVERYONE has fun.

Ten Annoying Things – #10

Posted in Editorial, Humor / Comics on June 1, 2010 by morleyfieldsd

Welcome to our new series highlighting annoying things that disc golfers do. Most everyone will agree on the top two or three but lets start a conversation on the rest.

Number 10: “Cooler Mud”
This issue seems to be embedded in the DNA of most weekend “players”. Since Morley Field is one of the few courses that have benches on all the holes, this trait seems to be indigenous to Morley.

Cooler Mud (cool-er mud)
Function: noun
Date of Origin: Early 1970′s

1: a drippy, wet, puddle of mud left on benches after one removes their cheap, leaking cooler from placement on a bench (normally used for sitting) due to cooler being dragged through dirt while “playing” disc golf.

Cause: oblivion to groups playing behind you, oblivion in general
Remedy: leave your cooler on the ground.

If you have been an unwiting victim of CMB (cooler mud butt), share your story with others, that’s the best way to work through it.

note – no alcohol is permitted on the course at any time
