Passing Shot: Driving in the Sierras

I never would have guessed that Disc Golf would become one of my favorite outdoor recreational activities, but it has.  My partner has been playing the sport for over 20 years and is, in part, responsible for getting me hooked.  That’s me in the photo throwing a backhand drive down the fairway of hole 12 on the Sierra College course in Truckee.  There are an estimated 233 courses in the state of California, and over 4000 registered courses in the United States according to the Disc Golf Association.  It is doubtful that I will play all of them, but I am certain that I will have fun trying.
