The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
In the beginning I used to only worry about putting and how far I could throw the disc. After watching a tourtament hosted in Ocala, I started to ask some of the pros what I should concentrate on. I remember this skinny guy with a monster afro telling me "smooth is far. It doen't matter if you can throw 500+ft, but it does matter if you can throw 300ft accurately." Turns out the skinny kid was Nikko... Great advice.
Get off the computer...go and throw!
Cut the macho sh*t, we're just throwing frisbees in a park.
Aim for a specific chain link when putting.
Think less, putt more!
I raised my rating by 50 points following some simple advice given to me by Mike Raley:
Vic beat me to it... I was going to say.... "throw the round one"
Be smart enough to play stupid. In other words, don't think too much, trust your skills and throw
"RELAX and Stay LOOSE" AND "Practice Your PUTTING EVERYDAY".
Not a slogan, but something I read in an article by Carlton Howard. When a bad shot leaves you in a bad lie, don't try to be heroic and "save par", or birdie or whatever. Imagine someone put a tee where your lie is, and think about the best way to play the hole from there.
This saved me from a lot of foolish shots, making bad situations worse, especially in tournaments.
Nah,that's a steal Jamie.
