Welcome to Crowley’s Corner, the place for disc golf players everywhere…….
Edition #008 features an article combining disc golf with some of your favorite rock bands. We’ll also have some of the regular features of the column, so relax and enjoy while waiting to make your next throw.
DISC GOLF “QUOTES”
“Quit your job, play disc golf” - Mace Man
“30 Years of quality and consistency ” - Discraft
“#1 in Discgolf” - Innova
“The company that brought you disc golf” - Disc Golf Association
“The World’s Premier Destination For the Sport of Disc Golf” - The International Disc Golf Center.
ACE FREHLY KISSES CHAINS
Whenever you combine disc golf with music, there’s bound to be some surprises, so tune in for a journey through golf with your favorite roc bands.
Some even remind you of local players, like Johnny Cash for Bobby Jones or Eddie Money for Billy Sivils. How about Louis Armstrong for Eric Trippany?
Anyway, this battle of the bands could have Alice in Chains against The Eagles, or the Spinners against Spyro Gyra.
Just one question, can you Fly like an eagle, or are you just Learnin’ to fly?
Sometimes you just want to Earth, wind and fire away, but don’t do a Bachman Turnover drive because your Air Supply will run out and you won’t be quite the Aerosmith you thought you were. People will think it’s a UFO that landed in the Bush near some Styx.
So don’t Rush your shot and don’t worry about Jane’s Addiction to disc golf unless she starts to lose Money, in which case you won’t get a Nickelback. Just throw it like it has Wings and you’ll be able to Kiss the chains with ease, so get out there to your favorite course and Ace Frehley.

THOUGHTS…. ON GOLF
It’s fun to write a goofy article once in awhile (Ace Frehly Kisses Chains), something that doesn’t have to make complete sense, or follow the normal rules of writing. I look forward to more senseless columns while attempting to “Educate, inform and enlighten” people about America’s best sport- disc golf.
