The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Start out by having Fun and learning to throw different discs !!!
It always helps to play with people better than you, dont be intimidated. Play tourneys if you got the money and the time. The PDGA membership will save you 10$ each tourney, plus you get a disc and mini-marker with your memb. number. The number is yours for life. Are you willing to commit?
I just started playing in July. I played in my first tourney in late August I took 3rd place in rec and met a bunch of great players and got some new plastic. The best advice given to me was to play rounds with some local pros. I joined up in a local disc golf club, there were two members before me and they were the founders. we got up to 7 members but did nothing as a club due to the president getting a new job and not having the time. But I did meet 3 local pros through the club and play with them every week. That has improved my game a lot. Its great to see the lines and different shots they take as well as which disks they throw where. The biggest help to my game has been a practice basket that I built. Putting was one of the worst parts of my game. Check out Mark Ellis' confidence building course. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eq_bh_GtjtQ. I threw putts for ten minuets every time that I smoked a cigarette. It added 10-15 feet to my circle after about two months. Just get out there and play and if you see others on the course try to play with them. Good luck
take your time
