"Learn to throw a leopard.. They're deadly accurate and capable of hyzers, s curves, and anheisers with little effort. The disc definitely does exactly what you tell it to, and is my go-to disc on my local short course (plenty of obstruction).…"

"First get a disc that you can throw straight, then learn to throw it far. So stay away from the drivers that are stable until you can throw really straight, then go for the 12 rating discs."

"Before you do anything get the Ken Klimo dave feldberg dvd and watch it. It will give you a better grasp of the game. I would look into starting out with putters as suggested by the Champs above."

"work through different rocs at different stages and learn how different ones fly different ways for different senarios, they are a good disc to practice a power grip release and the plastic is cheap and best for the mold."

Hi, Jayson:

Welcome to "DGRUS" - which is what we use as shorthand for www.DiscGolfersR.us. This network is operated by my wife, Sheila Calhoun, and myself. Please don't hesitate to ever provide feedback, and especially let us know of operational problems or of people violating our guidelines, the most important of which is, "Behave as though everyone in here is your friend!"

Among other reasons, we created DGRUS to provide disc golfers with a place on the Web where "On the Internet" does NOT mean "In your face." Please check out the full set of guidelines if you have any questions about that: http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-guidelines.

The network's value is increased with each new member, especially when they share. So please use the "Invite" feature - http://tinyurl.com/DGRUS-invites - to urge your disc golf buddies to also join.

We'd like everyone who visits - more than 30,000 people a month - to join, but nearly everything is viewable even to those just browsing through. There are various ways for you to control who can or cannot see things that you post, and there are also various ways for you to control the email messages you get (or don't) telling you about things happening in the network. Please do share photos and videos, and join in forum discussions. There are nearly 700 clubs in here and you can start your own public or private one. We love it when members share posts in their blogs. As well, you can use the DGRUS Remarkd Flymart to either sell or buy disc golf stuff.

Never hesitate to contact us. You can use the internal messaging system, the "Report an Issue" button at the bottom of each page, or email us direct at terry.pirate.calhoun@gmail.com and sheila.m.calhoun@gmail.com. If you feel the need, you can even call me at (734) 355-0431.

Finally, please support our supporters, whose advertising you can see on every page. We started this totally as a fun project, but it grew so fast that we could not maintain it without their support.

Thanks for joining us. We truly hope you that this network magnifies the fun you get from disc golf.

- Terry Calhoun
