It's kind of a thing down here. I am pretty damn good.

I had not played in several years, but a couple of weekends ago my best bro and I played. I can still chuck it as far as anyone. I need to work on my short game though.

Is disc golf popular in your area?

No idea.

Today I learned disc golf was invented in Canada. https://www.google.c..._WiEzDM9tmfGmhg

Funny that it seems to be more popular in the southern US.

It's fun and free. There are 10-12 courses in tulsa County. All at public parks.

Disc golf is big in Cali too. Yall really haven't heard of it?

I used to play several times a week back in the day. Played for the first time in years last fall. Still got it baby. Was a little sore a few days later though.

LOL. You know how I know you don't know how to throw a frisbee?

God damn....
If I ever use the word 'frisbee' in a sentence, will the closest person just shoot me in the head?

You just did. And, no, I can't hit you from here. Angry bro? Did the dog chew your frisbee?

BTW the subject is Disc Golf. Not frisbee.

Is there a beer cart? :)

It was a thing in Sarasota, FL. Not a BIG thing, but a thing. My kids learned in NC summer camps, I think.

I have played a few times but never really got into it too much.

Ultimate frisbee, on the other hand... Been playing pick-up Ultimate for about 10 years and am pretty solid at it, though nothing like the club players.

'Frisbee' is copyrighted 1959. You can't use use terms like: Kleenex, Q-tip, Aspirin, Duck Tape, Band-Aid, Formica, Crockpot, Play-Doh or 4merper4mer either

When I finally quit playing ball around 40, I tried a couple times to go back to Disc since I used to be a pretty good handler and short area defender when I was younger. But damn, when your legs are finally gone there is no amount of cheating that can keep you competitive ; - )

You just make sure you enjoy the hell out of every second of it, JR.......

I hear you. I am 39 now and feel like I am starting to slow out there, hobbling around with a knee brace. Part of it is that the group I play with has gotten younger. A lot of high schoolers even. I am more skilled than a lot of them, but they can run for days.

Of course but I grew to fat and lazy to walk around the park doing something even remotely athletic

Quite popular here in Sonoma County. I don't play, but I see a few courses along the hills where I hike. On the weekends the courses are packed.
