The name's Zach Moses but a lot of folks on the course just stick with Moses. Been playing for about 5 years now and competitively for about 8 months. My favorite disc is the Elite Z Flash. It was one of the first discs i ever bought and has been in my bag ever since. I've also developed a relationship with my Warlocks (we're pretty serious).
The best advice i've ever gotten is to putt daily (for as long as you can concentrate) and go throw in an open field. Learning how your discs fly in wind, rain, and calm days is CRUCIAL.
With all that said, Happy Frolfing ( i know this word pisses Corey off but it is what it is.) and i'll see you on the course.

MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) — The golfer's paradise of Monterey will soon be home to another standout: A 36-acre, 18-hole course replete with verdant trees, nearby retailers and misty mornings that warm to sunny afternoons.
But Don Dahvee Park won't compete against nearby icons such as Pebble Beach or Spanish Bay. Its patrons won't even use clubs.
Instead they'll use flying discs, according to the Monterey Herald. Because the discs look like Frisbees, the sport is sometimes called "Frolf."
The rules are similar to golf, but instead of little holes, players aim for metal baskets with hanging chains.
Situated between a burger joint and a shopping mall, the disc golf course could open as early as January, according to the Monterey Park and Recreation Commission.
Members of the Monterey Stinging Jellies Disc Golf Club say the free course will increase awareness about the sport, give families a new form of low-cost recreation and generate cash for nearby businesses.
It might also help improve safety by attracting people to the relatively desolate Don Dahvee Park.
Disc golf was popularized in California in the late '60s, when it was a favorite pastime on the grassy campus of the University of California, Berkeley. The university installed a permanent course in 1970.
One of the sport's biggest boosters was Edward "Steady Ed" Headrick, who worked for Wham-O Inc., maker of the Frisbee and the Hula Hoop. Headrick oversaw the construction of 800 disc golf courses in 20 countries

Folf and Frolf are silly but charming, and are *very* accepted in some regions. Dolf is stupid.
(For those who don't know me personally, which is 98% of you, don't take the condescending and know-it-all tone very seriously.)

It is a term I hear quite often at the shop, that and frisbee golf. Frisbee golf I dont mind as much, but also get tired of the whole "..but its not really a frisbee, its more of a disc" speech that comes after.

frolf = natty light drinking 12-some throwing every which way and leaving their cans all over the course and having little to no respect for the park, themselves, or anyone else.
It's the PDGA not the PFA
It's a disc, not a frisbee
Should we rename the other golf game bolf?
