My brother Mike came down for the weekend to play in the Lexington Open disc golf tournament and brought his friend Nick Nowak. As I like to look at all of life as a chance to learn something, here is what we learned:
1. I am bad at disc golf, but have flashes of being OK.
2. There are a lot of very good players out there who take these events very seriously.
3. Mike learned about point 2 first hand when he was forced to play in the advanced division. Let's just say that we both have a lot of room for improvement.
4. Nick had a pretty good tournament and I think this event may have lit a fire for the sport inside of him. Go Nick! Win one for me!
In last year's Lexington Open, although I did not technically finish in last place, I was last among those who: 1. did not quit, & 2. were neither kids or women. So, my simple goal for this year was to finish in NOT last place among that group, which I accomplished, although by the very slimmest of margins. Sometimes when you set your goals low enough, you can actually accomplish them...
