My name is Matt. I am new to disc golf. I played a few rounds last summer, then Around feb. of this year I started played again. Now, I am hooked and can't get enough. I found this website, showed up at crockett park at 2pm on sun, and joined the club. Also here's to ya woody for signing me up as a member:
There was an old park named crockett on whose grounds got installed many a socket since the baskets are installed and the tee pads are all sprawled once you try it never will you knock it.
Hi guys! My name is Kevin, and I moved up to Nashville two years ago. I moved to WC this January, and I am just now getting out and checking out the courses here. I started playing in college. I went to Berry College down in Rome, GA. They have two very good courses on campus. I usually work in mental health, but I am currently a casuality of the bad economy. I try to get in close to a round a day since I don't have much else to do right now.

Hey, I'm Layne, met a bunch of you guys at Crockett this past Sunday and figured I'd check it out. Been playing disc golf for about two months now. A friend took me in Dallas the same week a friend here invited me, so I figured I ought to give it a try...now I'm hooked. Been playing 3-4 times a week, all from the red/am tees (except for when I wasn't paying attention to which tee I was on, before I knew the courses ;-). Don't have a clue if I'm any good or not, but I make enough decent shots to keep me hooked. Average about 3 birdies a round (at Crockett), and choke more than I'd like to. Haven't really been keeping the total score because I didn't want to be discouraged. Oh and because it seemed like a hassle when no one else I played with seemed to care. :-)
I've got 5 kids and another on the way. I'm only 32, but with 5 kids and a minivan I'm technically like 45 or so. My kids are hooked on disc golf as well, and between birthdays and everyone wanting to play together, I've got a substantial stack of discs now. Of course, the way I've been woodpeckering shots I'm going to need a few back up discs.
Anyhoo, looking forward to getting plugged in to the local "scene". I'm a missionary, so Sunday mornings may be a little difficult (but not impossible - we do most of our stuff on other days). Can't wait to play with some guys who can teach me how to not suck.
Welcome to the forums Layne! Glad to see you found your way to our online site. If you're own facebook you can search us out there too but all of the posting of current stuff is usually found right here on the forums. I've got 3 of my own kiddos with one on the way!! And since I watch my youngest during the day and work evenings, I'm usually out on the course at least once or more during the weekdays. There's usually a group of at least 4 of us who play once every week at 9:30am @ Liberty course in Franklin. Don't know what your schedule is like, but be sure to check the local tee times thread for when who is playing when and where. Look forward to seeing you on the course!

My name is Will Graham and I have been playing for a handful of years. Just got serious recently. Not a PDGA member but plan to be next fall. I attended Brentwood Academy for high school and just (two days ago) finished my first year at Berry College in Rome, Georgia. Unfortunately that means that I only get to play in WC (my home) a couple months out of the year, but I do what I can.
People call me the lumberjack. Tree's hate me...or love me. Not sure which one it is, but you get the point. If it weren't for trees I would be an excellent disc golfer. Here's to low rounds!

Hey I'm Bill and this might be shocking, but my wifes name is Christy. I live in the Atlanta area and play with the Thingyersons as often as possible....woah that sounds bad.
I have been playing right handed because my left shoulder is jacked. It might have been a good thing because since I have been hurt I started putting together womens clinics and I have my first womens tournament coming up in 2 weeks. My wife plays competitively and has pretty bad rating but has been throwing near 800 rated golf lately so I have a feeling it will rise quick if she can keep it together for tournaments.
The other good thing about my injury is that we are almost equal now, I have horrible distance, she outdrives me by 50-100' but my upshot is awesome so we usually score within 5 strokes of each other which is cool because we don't have to come up with any stupid handicaps to compete against each other.
