All that where there know that the weather and the wind was a huge part of the story at the TVC. It was critical to trust your discs in the wind and keep them dry. Though out the day I found my self going back to these five disc.
2nd run C-line PD2
This disc is the most stable disc in my bag and I reached for it on hole 18 and 19 both rounds. I could throw it hard into the wind on 18 and trust that it would come out. getting 18 once and 19 both rounds this PD2 got me the most birdies on the day.
Avery Jenkins Star Destroyer (3 line)
Although I would normally throw a Thunderbird on hole 3 ( Regular 1) The stiff headwind had me throwing a Stable Destroyer smooth to make sure i didn't go OB left. It was a good adjustment as I averaged about 7 feet and went 2 for 2. I also got hole 9 once with it totaling 3 birds with this disc. Sharing the most birds title.
Metal Flake Roc 3
My most stable roc in my bag saw some throws. Most notably on hole 3 I threw it both rounds on hole 4 and went 2 for 2. On a side note I also aced hole 4 with this same disc warming up.
Discmania C-line FD
Although this disc officially did not card me any birdies it did get me within 100 feet right in the middle of hole 1 for an easy up and down for 3.
Innova Sexton Firebird
I think we all know this is one of the best disc made if you are unfamiliar with this disc it falls right in between an Eagle-x and a champion Firebird. I threw it both rounds on hole 12 never further than 12 fee going 2-2 on that hole.
Not counting the FD these four discs accounted for 10 of my 14 birdies. The others coming from:
ROC X3 getting me hole 10 both rounds.
Star destroyer getting me 1 on 11.
C-Line FD getting me hole 8 1 of 2 rounds.
But the most important disc and best disc ever made the
KC Pro Aviar.
Have you wanted to learn more about throwing forehands here is your chance. One of Idaho's Premier forehand throwers will be hosting a clinic February 11th before Winter series 8. I have played with James for over 10 years and I can say he has one of the most consistent and longer forehands in our area. James ability to get great distance and maintain a hyzer angle is unmatched in Idaho. I have taken a ton away from watching and listening to James talk about the forehand throw and I have no doubt you can pick up a few things listening to him for a few minutes.
Forehand Clinic with James Litchfield
Where: Municipal Park before Winter Series #8
Time: 8:30 am before registration
Length: 20-30 minutes

Cam's 2001 season was one of the best seasons of all time. Cam placed in the top two in 17 events, he won worlds, the Wintertime Open, The Bob West (The Memorial), and 7 other events. He finished the year rated 1022. with a total of 23,628 in Prize money
Cam is known as one of the best putters in the world and along with Feldberg molded my putting more than any other player in the game. (I guess that only matters if you think I am a good putter)
Cam and wife Lesli will out on Tour this year selling art and playing well I am sure. If you run into them say hello and think about buying a print.

If you started playing this sport within the last 15 years you may have never heard of Cam Todd. But if you want to become a better putter take the time to listen and watch what this legend has to say.
