The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

This was tangentially started by another topic, but worth pursuing.

Please humor me for a minute:

The next time your out, in addition to keeping track of your score, keep track of how many times you throw each of your discs. Post the results with your final score; it will make for an interesting survey. An example post from my bag might look like:

Star Destroyer--2
Gold Halo--5
DX San Marino Roc--11
Evolution Spirit--3
Evolution Warrior--3
Evolutinon Apache--3
Raging Inferno DT--2
11X Aviar--3
Pro D Magnet--15

Total Score=52--2 down

This might be a good way for us to pair down our bags and figure out what works best for us on certain courses. Lets have fun with it--we might learn something!

Print & Carry with Clip Board...Fill out at each tee pad...Keep in file for comparison. Nice.
I can modify quickly for different courses. (My original includes A,B,C, & D for Cliff Stephens)
I took out the C & D and still left an extra slot for a practice hole or whatever so You could print & use.
Have fun!

Sweet--did you just develop this? or have you had it on hand?

Is there anyway you could post a PDF of it? or email one to me?
It is in my pictures as Full Size...Right click and save...Print.
I threw this together for your discussion. I have similar graphs and charts I use.
We love statistics here at Clearwater Disc Golf Store.
When we ran the Cross Canyon Challenge at the most difficult course in Florida, we kept and compiled the results. Here is a link to that page...very interesting results.
Many thanks to Disc-O Golf for the disc use tracker scorecard!

I combined the two peices and scanned it into a PDF for ease of use!
Teebird - 7 times

Aviar Putter - 18 times

Pro Roc - 7 times

Star Destroyer - 3 times
you shot 19 down?
Lemme work this out

OK my last round was the final round of a sanctioned event (Earlewood Classic) so I thought I would do this. It was my 2nd highest rated round ever at 986. Only 4 players in a full field shot lower. So enough bragging:

DX Aviar - 24
Star Valkyrie - 5
Star Firebird - 2
Pro Classic Roc - 3
XD - 1
Pro Wraith - 1
Pro-Line Spider - 1
Champ Beast - 2
Ching Roc - 2
Z-Wasp - 2
Champ QJLS - 1
Champ Firebird - 1
1st run QJLS - 1
Star Destroyer - 1

Total 47 (7 down)

Not sure what I'll learn from this but I think it's a good indication of what a player might learn over a weekend on an out of town course he's competing on.
Thanks! Great round! I'm glad to see some stats being compiled.

If it were my list, here is what I would gather from the data--if you didn't already come to these conclusions
1.The DX Aviar is the most important disc in my bag
2. My star Valk was my 'go to' driver on this course
3. I have a lot of discs that are used for situational shots--but considering my score, its obvious I know my plastic.
4. I can probably shoot low with 15 discs or less on most any course.

they might be superfluous conclusions, but fun to think about!
Yeah, pretty obvious conclusions. I had used my Champ Beast more in earlier rounds w/o as much success, so it was my goto for that last round. Almost as interesting were the discs I didn't use. I carry 3 Buzz's and did not use them much all weekend. Thumbers ruled on the turnover holes.
That round turned out to be my first ever 1000 rated round. Right on the dot
Well, I guess I'm just a party pooper. I'm a newbie, and I have my longest driver (Tbird), and my best putter (XD). I use those about 95% of the time. I can think of 2-3 holes (over a half dozen courses) where I throw a shark as my driver, because they're either on a steep incline, and I don't want a slide, or where I really don't want a fade. That's a bout it. I've been told that once I get more experience, then discs will start acting differently, and I might want more diversity.
