I lost two disc golf discs today. Both were on forehand throws on the difficult eighteen-hole course I like to play.
One disc was on an easy throw that I was not expecting to have any issues with but I threw it too high and the wind caused it to drift out into the rough. I was very disappointed to lose the disc because it had become one of my favorite discs for a lot of mid-distance throws. It was just starting to get beat-in nicely and flying farther.
I lost the other disc on hole six on a throw I was expecting to have problems with. I intentionally brought along a disc that I was not particularly fond of but knew was likely to be able to go the distance. It was on my shelf for a long time so I threw it a few times to remember how it flew. When I stepped up to throw it one hole six I hesitated a bit because I thought it flew better than I remembered and I wasn't sure if I wanted to lose it.
Not having confidence in your throw is the best way to make a mistake in disc golf and sure enough, the throw was not good. It hit a tree and disappeared into some underbrush.
I'm thinking about heading back out to the course with a rake in the morning. I might be able to get at least one of the discs back. I'd like to find the Wrath disc before the tournament on Monday because of how much I have been using it recently. I don't think it is more than five feet away from the fairway but tall grass can be difficult to find discs in.
After searching today for discs I was tired out and almost lost another disc on hole thirteen where I lost the Wrath disc. Luckily I found my disc after a fairly short search but I decided I had best not finish the round the way I was playing at that point.
Hole five was nicely mowed today:
