YEY,. I AM SUPERSTITIOS IN THAT IF I DO NOT PLAY MORE THAN THREE TIMES A WEEK I WILL LOOSE MY GAME, YEP ALLLLMOST GOT THE WIFE CONVINCED THIS IS THE TRUTH, SHHHHH DONT SAY ANYTHING TO MY WIFE.
PS- BY THE WAY I DONT KNOW WHO THIS CD DC DISCFUNTIONAL GUY IS WHOS NAME IS POSTED ABOVE THIS REPLY
I try to visualize before every drive, putt and midrange shot . This seems to help for putting the most. I also like my disc in order from midrange to my most overstable driver in my bag from left to right . I keep a lucky Hacky Sack in the right pocket , of my bag .
On every putt I turn my back to the basket and line up the basket with my throwing arm. I then turn around closing my eyes and take in two breaths while removing all earlier shots from my mind good or bad and imagine the disc hitting center chains. Then I turn around take two practice line up mental throws and let it go on the third. I guess where the Superstition comes in is I do this no matter how close I am and believe if I don't it throws my putting off for every putt after that.
My mini has a blue and red yin-yang symbol on it. I start the round making sure the red side is always pointing toward the basket for "hot" putting. If I seem to be missing, then I switch to the blue side pointing since my putting seems to be "cold" to see if that changes my fortunes. If I can't tell for sure how it's going, I'll have them pointing sideways. Regardless, I'm always choosing to positon the direction of the symbol for every mark except maybe drop-ins.
The night before a tournament I will hand wash all my discs (at leasts the ones I might use in the tournament) and I clean out my bag and throw it in the washer. Just makes me feel like I have washed any bad mojo off my gear.
Every throw I align the disc so as I am looking at it it is oriented "up" (text, image, etc) so I grip the disc in the same place every time. Weird and a bit O-C, but then that's how I play =)
