HOW TO SPOT A
LIMBER DISC GOLFER
This evasive species is usually spotted in the subalpine region of the Rocky Mountain range. Although often surrounded by fierce competitors in the light of day, the Limber player can be spotted in the early morning or around dusk playing by themselves, cursing under their breath, and throwing all their discs. You may smell the sweet chocolatey notes of the local coffee roaster or hear the cracking of a tall-boy from the favourite surrounding micro-brew. They can be amazing disc golfers but have a tendency to have an off round which sends them into hiding for days at a time. They also tend to be all-season players, even if it means searching for hours for a disc that slipped under a whiff of snow or fastening a ribbon to their disc to avoid such catastrophes. All in all, Limber players love their sport and seeing it grow, are friendly, and always blame the disc or the wind.
