The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

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 enthusiast heading off to play a challenging course
you've never played before, you might put another sleeve or two of balls
in your bag in anticipation of hitting some shots into unfamiliar OB.
It makes sense, especially if it is any kind of official competition.
Remember the movie Tin Cup? In it the point was raised that if a player
runs out of balls he or she is disqualified. So extra balls in the bag
is a pretty simple insurance policy. For us disc golfers, not so simple.

When we lose a disc, in essence, we lose the equivalent of a club. And when
you lose a key disc in your bag, you usually don't have one exactly like
it waiting in the wings. Most key discs have been broken in to a point
that they can't be replaced right away with another one off the shelf,
even if you happen to be carrying it with you. And if you're like me,
there is always the chance you'll lose that one, too!

Such was the case recently when I played Pinto Lake in Watsonville for only the second time since the long upper holes were added.
