The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

By that I mean old.  I'm 56, been playing for 3 yrs, but competitively only 6 months. I developed a mean case on tendinitis recently, which meant a return to forehand only...which is okay, as I can generally average 320-380 drives.  My concern is my throwing style.  Sure, I can still whip one out right now...but I've seen players get similar distance without seemingly throwing very hard...and I am unable to do so.  Injury is a concern, of course.   Any thoughts?

Donny, so sorry to hear of your trouble.  Hoping you get to keep getting around the course.  Yup, lighter plastic is in my future.

At 62 with a total hip and a total knee surgery behind me, I will add my two cents for throwing at 80%. I find I play much better when I focus on throwing with good form, than when I try to hammer the disc for max distance.
