The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I have started throwing mid's and putters off the tee and really like it, but I would never get ride of the drivers, just get to know the mids and putters then go back to throwing drivers as well, just don't forget what you learn as they (mids & putters) can be more useful then one may have thought while he/she was throwing them for short shots!
I think I have more control then ever before and I do not have to throw as hard to make it go as far, maybe farther!
LESS IS MORE
The less you have to learn in the beginning, the better off you will be. Take the time to learn one of each type of disc. (a driver, a mid, and a putter) Once you have mastered those disc, then find similar discs and work your way out.
I think this is one of the things that will make your game better the fastest if you're new. I'd rather have more control and accuracy than have it sometimes when throwing a driver. You'd be surprised at how easy it can be to throw a putter near 300' and mid further once your form is up to snuff. Once you can do that and create a larger margin of error for yourself....why wouldn't you throw a mid or putter?
Learn to drive off the tee with these discs and you'll be better for it.
I'd say yes and no, but it has more to do with the speed of the discs. Try or stay with the lower speed drivers like a Valkyrie or Sidewinder and hold of on the Wraith or Nuke type (high speed driver). Heck you might notice your throwing the so called slower speed drivers further than the high speed drivers.
Just remember the "speed" of a disc has nothing to do with how fast it is. It is the speed YOU must produce in order to make that disc fly the way it's suppose to.
Don't eliminate the drivers just throw the right one's for a beginner ( Sidewinders,Roadrunners, Leopards)
Eventually work your way up to a Teebird
