Today I met the guy who invented the 2nd set of chains.
Dunno what I’m talking about? Don’t feel bad. I was at the local disc golf course, and there was this older guy (late 40s?) throwing some amazing putts on the last hole. We talked for a bit, and it came out that he’d been playing since 1975. Near as I can tell, that’s the year the sport was invented since that’s when the patent was issued on the disc golf “pole-hole” target. He went on to tell me that at one of the parks he set up, he decided to try a second ring of chains to see if the discs would stick in the baskets better. Turned out they did, so he went to the PDGA with the plans, and they adopted them. Nifty.
Anyway, it was cool talking to him. It made the truly crappy game I played a lot more bearable.
