The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I am very excited, i played my first round of disc golf today at Veteran's park! I had a great time (when I could find the tees haha) and scored an 84. I noticed how amazing other people were doing, and was wondering if there was a clinic that maybe someone offered or was willing to hold to go over the basics. If not, is there a group willing to take on a beginner to maybe walk a few games to learn from veterans?
Thank y'all so much!!!!
The disc goes up and hooks left because you aren't keeping it flat when you throw it. Pull the disc through like you are starting a lawnmower or snapping a towel. Keep all of the motion of the dics straight through and it will go quite far. I gave this advice to a girl on the course yesterday because I saw her starting the disc very high and then dropping it before throwing. I went over to her, stood behind her and told her to start the disc back where I was and then pull through. She immediately doubled her distance.
Also learn the X-step and do it slow and smooth. Good footwork sets you up for a good throw.
Take all the advice that you can.
Apply what you learn.
Practice, Practice, and Practice.
When all is said and done,
Develop your STYLE.
Everyone is the same but DIFFERENT.
The Phrase, "I want to be like Climo" is cute, but
nobody can be him except for him.
Be you, only better.
Most of all, have fun.
I found the information on this link to be very helpful. Read it once, then go practice. Read it again and go practice. Repeat often. There is so much information on technique that most of it won't make much sense at first, keep at it and practice. The link is a good reference to keep coming back to as you progress.
