The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Touch means control. A person with a big arm can blast a drive but can they park a 100 foot upshot? The upshot is touch.
Shaquille O'Neal can dunk with great power but put him at the free throw line and he lacks touch. His power does him no good at the charity stripe.
wow Mark, that was a freakin GREAT analogy !!
A weak player with great touch will almost always beat a power player without touch because golf is a game of control.
ok so, would a 'touch disc' be at all necessary? one like a snap whitler? or should i stick with my midranges and my putter?
Necessary?? Maybe not. Useful? Heck yes.
I have a broom, do I still need a toothbrush? Your doctor has an axe, does he still need a scalpel?
With enough skill the best in the world can make do. For the rest of us the right tool helps a lot.
The best touch disc made, imo, is the Discraft Rattler. Get one. Use it for playing catch at short range (100 feet and under). Once you figure it out, throw it soft. Throw it smooth. Throw it gentle. Float it in. This is what touch is all about.
