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 ???

I spent last season playing am2 and am3 in local and sanctioned tourneys. So this Top Six is for those on the bottom side of the tournament.

#6. Throw what you know. If you don't practice it, don't throw it in a tournament. This goes for shot type and disc selection.

#5. Sometimes, your first round will be a mix. You might be the bottom of a card that includes Open or Masters. Be as polite and efficient as possible. If they (the pros) talk much and observe little, then listen little. If the talk little and observe much then LISTEN MUCH. Follow #6 regardless. You can work out their advice later.

#4. Water and food are a must. Of all the people out here, you and others in your group are most likely to be affected by TIME and HEAT. Understand this and be over-prepared. It might save you some strokes.

#3. Mistakes happen at this level. Big ones. As much fun as it is to kick yourself....STOP. You need the next shot to work. This will only happen if your foot isn't stuck in.....an unpleasant place. Clear everything out of your mind and work on that next shot.

#2. Most putting mistakes at this level (from my observations) are from being short. You must get the disc to the basket. You can learn the difference between being short and being 30' long with practice.

#1. Eliminate dumb luck. Dumb luck is the shot that is easily identified and impossible to throw. Others may execute this shot routinely, but you lack the skills, practice, disc, or patience. Some may call this being conservative. Is it conservative or smart to avoid shots that will bring you trouble 8 times out of 10?

You are not the one out there playing for the big money, so you should be out there for the big fun. These six ideas should help.
Great advice! Thanks.
I thing your TOP SIX is very good, thanks for your input.
Your number one is very good. It’s a must . Thanks …
Wear comfortable clothing especially shoes.

Dont try and play better than your last round of Disc Golf even if it was a good round.
Just try and get back to your roots in the sport. Its only been 1.5 yrs for me, but It helps to pretend im back playing with the single X-OUT innova disc I did not even know what it was.

Like the movie Happy Gilmore says..."Find a happy place" . What ever sets your mind at ease, go there. It can be a different place from time to time also.

If you have the slightest notion of wind affecting your disc flight.....it will. Go with your stable discs and make them work. You will probably outdrive your group.

Take it easy. Take it easy. Take it easy. A wise man once told me not to try and send it into orbit. Just it easy.

"CLICHE ALERT" !!!!!!!!!!!

just have fun. If your round starts off bad or your round goes sour, at least just strive for that one drive of your 18 holes that just sails like a dream. Then you can go home happy about something.
Sonic for lunch, thats about it. My Wizard rules, I think you already know that though.
U buying lunch @ sonic, cool...you are the man!!!
you got to earn it! Sonic against the Wizard from the C-pads for lunch? One Disc, One Winner, The Wizard will put a spell on that sonic!!
That's like a 5 iron agianst a sand wedge, The sonic is a very short range approach disc, slow and straight, reminds me of a shuttle puppy in a way. You have definitely mastered the Lizard... I mean Wizard. <300 Approach's and putt's, you are, no doubt at an advantage...heavily favorited. I have less than 12 putts with the sonic...It's not a Classic Roc, but...WTH....I'll do it...put the, underdog, Sonic to the test. For lunch at.....you guessed it............................Sonic! Cool
Listen up you two. This is not a private message board, for you two to go at it and see who has a bigger disc. So get a room already .

I will take you both on for lunch . * from the risk taker *
.....snort!!! LMAOROTF
...U gotta use the sonic too....Mr. Risk Taker
