The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

i have been playing for what will be five years at the end of 2009. My game has steadily improved for most of that time. recently i have stagnated in my development. i wasnt able to play any tournaments this year, and really dont plan on it for next year. i know this may contribute to my plateau. i still manage to get out and play a lot- 133 rounds so far this year on varying courses and a wide selection played regularly.

So i decided to start over--by working on the fundamentals. To start this process i have been practicing my putting more. This morning i went to a local short moderately wooded course and played the entire round with just my buzz and magnet. i was able to shoot -2. last time i played the course i shot even with all of my discs.

So the reason i post is to hear some suggestions on putting all the pieces back together and improving.

Sometimes taking a couple weeks off and not even touching a disc helps. You seem to forget all the stupid stuff you were doing without even realizing it. Try different grips, see if it improves your distance. Video your tee-box drives and study your motion and look for room for improvement. Any of these will help.
my putting has improved a lot lately-- i switched my main putter to a soft challenger. whether it is the putter or the technique i cant say, but the switch has added some confidence. i had been putting with a soft magnet for about two years. i still carry the soft magnet and use it for upshots since i am so familiar with the disc. i have also been using the soft magnet for anhyzer putts around obstacles.

taking some time off may be a good idea--with the weather getting cold here in michigan i typically slow down on the amount of golf i play. i have found in the past that playing 5 rounds a week will diminish my distance a little since the arm becomes weaker.

casual rounds since i have been reworking my game have been some good, some not good. --
i plan on concentrating on throwing my roc and putters farther and smoother this winter since runups are usually not as easy in the snow and icy teepads it will be easier and less temping to disc up on some of my shots ,I had the chance to play and watch some NT touring pro's throw their rocs and putters this yr and admired how smooth and effortless their throws were and was told to throw my putters and rocs this winter .so hopefully i can improve next summer
Nice Call : So i decided to start over--by working on the fundamentals. Work on course management also.
