Mind control in disc golf- first step: thinking about what you're thinking about

How many times has any of the following happened to you?



* You miss badly on a tricky and/or risky putt, and almost immediately after it leaves your hand you realize that although you thought you had decided to go for it, the disc comes out weak and unsure- maybe wobbling more than usual and way too low.

* You hit a tree right after you made not hitting the tree your primary focus

* You catch yourself thinking about your overall score, and the impact your last throw had or… Continue

Putting practice, indoors, without a basket

I travel fairly frequently, and I end up spending a decent

amount of waking hours in a hotel room. Even when I'm in places that

have courses near enough to get in a quick round, I usually just scurry

around the course, note it's highlights despite the fact that it's no

DeLaveaga, then split. When I'm on the road, I rarely get in any putting

practice at all.



So one time I pulled out my putters in the hotel room, wedged myself in one corner, and aimed for a… Continue

Don't Count Your Chickens (Before They Hatch)!

Played Black Mouse yesterday, and I got off to a nice start. Birdied 1,

2, 3, and 4. To my credit, I didn't once entertain the possibility of

shooting -18. But I did think that double digits was a given, and it got

me out of a disc-ipline that I've worked for years to establish. I

actually kept track of my score the whole time after that, and when on

the teepad calculated how many holes out how many remaining I'd have to

birdie to shoot -10. (For the record, I shot… Continue

Disc Golf in a Vaccum- One small facet thereof

Disc Golf in a Vacuum(TM) is the

catchy phrase I've come up with to describe the bundle of ideas about

the mental side of golf that make up my disc golf philosophy. It means

many different things in different situations, but in general is all

about embracing, appreciating, and learning from each shot we attempt.

Before, during, and after. In a vacuum, there are no 'pars,' or 'rounds'

or even 'holes.' There are only shots. Look… Continue

A Time to Drill It

I used to over-simplify my approach to putting tempo, using the logic

that the disc should have just enough on it to run out of gas and fall

into the chains with just enough power left to slip into the cage. That way, more marginal putts will fall in, and those that miss will usually end up close enough for a drop-in. But

on further examination, it's clear that different situations… Continue

The other side of disc selection

Usually when you hear 'disc selection', you think in terms of which disc

in your bag is best suited to execute your next shot. Today I'm talking

about something else, a concept that could maybe be called 'disc

selection for disc preservation'. It results from one of the major

distinctions between disc golf and ball golf- the fact that our discs

are the equivalent to their clubs and balls combined.



If you're a ball golf… Continue

Why Playing Fast Can Improve Your Score

I ran a round at DeLa yesterday, in exactly the 1:15 time I was aiming for. The main goal of staying on the fairway was achieved, and the +2 overall score wasn't great, but wasn't horrible for a running round. The score is mostly attributable to the hospitality of the threesome I encountered on the third hole. Sure, I was -1 after my birdie on 3, and -2 after another birdie on hole 5, but that's as low as I got.



Scores aside, though, the one thing that caused me to think in depth was… Continue
