Heh, I noticed Stacy Bromberg posted something on your facebook page. She was picking (flirting) on me at Music City Classic this past year. When she sat down to watch Jim Widdy get beat by one of our home town guys Chuck P in a final for 501, if memory serves me correct. She was telling one of her friends about how Chuck was an elephant trainer by day. Which is probably why he has nerves of steal, dealing with goliths of the earth on a daily basis.
Just struck me as funny I suppose.
I’m playing in a one day tourney tomorrow. I’m feeling good George. Your drills have helped me, seriously. I feel i’m stroking better than ever. And at first I didn’t give grouping drill much attention. But now, I really do incorporate it before and between whatever I’m doing. Really does help you find the stroke to put the dart in the hole. I keep getting ah ha moments from the things you have said. It’s pretty cool.
It’s also pretty cool when guys that used to beat the snot out of you tell ya that they like to play you just to watch you throw, even though they know they are gonna get slaughtered. This one older guy says I have one of the prettiest strokes around. That was really cool and I told him as much. He now calls me the pro after I beat Baggish a couple of months ago in a tourney. These are the guys I used to look up to( I still do in a way, just because they have thrown for so many years and I’m pretty much still new (only thrown for 4 years). Guys i have tried to emulate I guess in a way. It’s nice to be respected and people wanting you to be their partner. And when guys hear they have to play me, cringe. haha…
I have seen pics of me at the oche with my stance and grip and it’s a trip to see yourself because I do seem to have a good grasp right there. Does look good. I’m not trying to toot my own horn by any means. But i have put countless hours on the oche. And i have already taught myself the exact stroke you speak of. The follow through… when I reach… etc. So seeing what you put into words and what I do already is cool. Because it was self taught over the past 4 years of just watching others and taking little things from everyone and incorporating them into the stroke I have developed. Even from the very start, the local legends told me I had a beautiful stroke. That feed my ego to make that stroke deadly accurate. Im getting there. Top players from around here are now telling me they will and want to play with me in tourneys. That’s exciting!
I just love this game/sport. It’s definitely my passion. My old friends of course hate it because we never see each other much anymore. Im always out stroking.
Another guy told me if I keep at it and keep progressing the way I am. I will be a nationally ranked contender. Of course he was drunk though. Ha
Well sorry for the long note George. I’m just excited with passion about darts right now. I have gotten better in the past couple of months. And I really think I owe it to you. So thanks!
