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.
"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.
good advice.this might of just answered the post discussion.
too many mind no good
Reach back, then follow through.
When you have a choice between two shots that are equal in risk, choose the shot you know better. Then go and practice the other shot until you feel just as confident throwing it.
Learn how to throw rollers.
best advice I've got , was to keep my wrist cocked all the way back from start to finish. That helped me keep the nose down and added up to better "D" off the tee. now if I could figure out what else I'm doing wrong....
