The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

#6 If you have the option go with the hyzer before the anhyzer …
#5 Disc golf is a game of risk and reward, star par usually does not WIN…
#4 On your up shot if your not ten feet past the basket, it never had a chance.
I’d rather putt coming back to the basket then a spot short of the basket…
#3 There all round. Don’t stair into the bag too long, You should know your
discs better then that. We all have that go to disc, use it…
#2 That one sec. before you release your putt if your not 100% positive that
you have got it, take a step back and rethink it. The only thing that should
be in your head is I GOT THIS,
#1 The three M’s Mechanics Mechanics Mechanics. I try to work on
this In the field in back of my house. I work on it till my back and legs hurt, and
I still don’t have it right...
#1* This is a bonus. Why is disc golf more fun when you are playing for a
monetary value, Even if only a Single dollar, maybe it’s the bragging
rights ???

What's your top six ? or what do you thing of mine?

.I like your #3 I find myself doing that. In fact I did this today on a new course I played “Turkey Lake the T-2" in
Orlando FL. It can be a big help for the next round.
Being a Tournament Director for our club monthly (LDGA, Lumberton NC, 4th Saturday of each month), I thought about this post from a slightly different perspective. These are my Top six for TD's. I hope that you will endulge me for a moment.

#6 Since players are winning or purchasing your discs, ask players what discs they would like you to order when you need to restock. Don't order a bunch of discs that no one wants.

#5 CTP's are needed at all events. Be creative in obtaining them. Business will donate gift certificates if you ask. Plastic is always a good CTP. If players know that you will have CTP's, many times they will donate some.

#4 Always start on time after you have a players meeting that outlines hazards, local rules, and common rulings that occur at your course.

#3 Rules are meant to educate not to punish. Don't get me wrong, I am not suggesting that you not apply penalties, but you should use common sense and not look to stroke players.

#2 Skill level should be the only criteria to dictate a player's division. You should not punish players because no one from their skill level attended the tournament. If a player scores significantly better than his competiion, politely show them where they would have placed in the next division and incourage them to move up next tourney. Only force them to move up if they consistently score significantly better.

#1 Publish the results of your event. Email your local newspapers, even if they never print them. Post them on a website, put them on a message board at your course, or mention them at the next tourney. This sport would grow even more dramatically if TD's would do this.

This is just my two cents, but tell me what you think.
It’s a good thing to get the parks department to understand what your disc golf club is all about. with a little help from them golf clubs can do a world a good for the park.
1. Have fun!!!
2. Play hard
3. Play to win
4. Jingle loose change in pocket when Terry's putting....just kidding...snort!
5. SONIC....for u Chris, Bahahahaha
To Mark Stephens:
I don't know you or the course you speak of, but maybe you could point out the course that a local church in my area has. I think if it is good enough for a church, who can throw stones?
#6 Beginners should not own a driver for the first year.
#5 Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
#4 When keeping score during a tournament always call out everybodies score.
#3 Try new courses.
#2 Ask the pros for tips on your game.
#1 Work to promote the sport in your communities.
Your number one is very important, especially with the city or park and recreation div.
#6 - If you find yourself becoming bored with your local course but other courses are not available to you, start working on the facets of your game you might be neglecting: forehands, thumbers, rollers, shots with your non-dominant arm. Voila! The course just became challenging again.

(This is also an effective way to balance the scales a bit when you're playing with someone less experienced or skilled than you are.)

#5 - For God's sake, avoid the juvenile temptation to destroy trees, limbs, shrubbery and any other obstacles on the course. Not only is it against the rules, it's also some of the rudest behavior you can possibly exhibit on a course.

(This extends to vandalism of any sort, including tees, baskets, scorecard boxes, trash cans, etc. If you just can't help yourself, stay home until you grow up.)

#4 - Arrive at a tournament early enough to stretch, acclimate yourself to the conditions, get some putting practice and check your bag to ensure you're ready to tee off when the horn sounds. This is good advice for any round of golf, even casual rounds with friends, but it's especially important if you've paid for the opportunity to play and want to do well in the event.

#3 - Know your playing partners well enough to know when you can offer them advice, and when you can't. Some players appreciate constructive criticism, and some don't. And in a tournament, keep your advice to yourself unless it's requested.

#2 - Introduce yourself to other golfers. The disc golf community is large, but it's not infinite; every one of them knows someone you know, or knows something you could stand to learn. The players you meet today are your playing partners tomorrow. Disc golfers are among the kindest, most generous people on earth. The more of them you know, the richer your experience will be.

#1 - Enjoy every facet of a round of golf, every time: the beauty of the course; the perfect (or less-than-perfect) weather; the cameraderie; the crazy bounces, deflections, skips, spit-outs, "tournament rolls" and even the occasional great shots. Few experiences in life can be as thoroughly rewarding as a walk in the open air with good friends and a few bags of plastic. Cherish them.
#6 Find The Right Disc.cant stress it enough.
#5 TOWEL you never know when youll need a towel whether it be to clean off your disc or clean the beer you spilled out of your bag always bring a towel.
#4 Eat Something i have seen so many people come to the disc golf course without eating play a round and look like zombies. its not hard to grab some ramen or a sandwich just do it youll feel better and you wont be as tired after each round
#3 Stretch & Warmup. Not just a few putts i mean WARMUP. do a lap around the course stretch your arms legs back hips shoulders. putting should be the last thing you do. and should only be about 15 to 20 minutes
#2 Play with people you dont know. not only is it a way to meet new people but its also a way to improve your game they might be able to teach you something too.
#1 Lastly and MOST IMPORTANT Have Fun. you generally shoot anywhere from 54 to 70 shots on any given course depending on par there are just too many shots to stress out over one.relax correct your mistake and move FORWARD.

Have fun guys i love this sport and know all of you do too. lets have some fun.

Happy Disc'n
The Starhucker
Wow, you got it on the nose. Your # 3. I have come off the course looking like a zombie from the lack of food, I know it put 2-3 strokes on my card. And it’s so easy to do. And eating is so much fun, how do we forget? Looking forward to the game so much I guess?
Amen! I think carrying enough food/water is often overlooked by [am] players. Here's what I do when I play tournaments ... I will often take a little more water then I need, a couple extra energy bars or snacks that I can offer other players in my group if for some reason they crash.

I would rather help another player get out of that "zombie" condition and help his game, than to play with someone who is dehydrated or grouchy because they didn't eat/drink enough ... I won't allow another player in my group to distract me with whining or grouchyness just because they forgot something!
#6 Practice
#5 Play with those better than you.
#4 Watch what they throw and how they throw.
#3 If you can have fun then darn it look good doing it.
#2 Have fun
#1 Get your mind right...
