The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So I know a lot of people get into disc golf, but almost everyone I talk to has some sort of prior sport history from high school or up. I was wondering what everyone here played back in the day, or even still play. I'm a football/wrestler on the college level (D2), and a played a lil baseball in high school. Anyone else?

Have done it all, Hockey is always been my #1 passion. Started a bad smoking habit and found discgolf a little easier.
Cornerback in high school.
Discus and rugby and tennis in school .............. play a lot of tennis and disc golf now ..... the strokes of tennis are the same as dg .... forehand backhand and serving a thumber .... the switch was easy
Football, basketball, track, baseball, soccer, ice hockey.... not all at the same time.
Wish I knew about disc golf earlier !
Out grew wrestling at an early age. 6' 3" does not make a good wrestler.
Nothing really in HS or college - only organized sports I've played are Church League softball and bowling leagues.
First string Defensive End in highschool, weightlifting, and boxing.
I wish I really knew about disc golf earlier also. I was living in Iowa about 17 years ago and a youth group pastor of mine took us out to his land where we we played DG with some Ultimate Frisbee and garbage cans. It was always one memory I always had for some reason of living in Iowa. 13 years later living in Michigan, a good friend of mine reintroduced me to the sport, and I have been hooked ever since.

I would have never known when I was throwing a Frisbee at a garbage can I would be hooked on Disc Golf later on down the road.
I wish I knew about it earlier too, but I have to disagree about the height and wrestlers. It doesn't matter how tall you are, it matters bout how you use it. It's like boxing with the reach factor but not as dramatic of an impact.

Like to see someone like Kareem Abul-Jabar wrestle!?
Dude, you're crazy. :-) I wrestled in this program in kindergarten. I made a kid cry and felt too bad about it and quit. I'm glad now because the wrestlers at my school were crazy. They ran more than us cross country guys and they didn't eat.
Tennis, track (800m and 1600m), cross country, basketball, indoor soccer, innertube waterpolo (best sport EVER), and ulimate.
