I'm curious as to what kind of "presence" that means. Does that simply mean the sport (courses) exist? Or that they have some official organization? If we're just talking about courses, we're...

I know, I know. I need to get in contact with these people so they can have 5-6 forms of golf instead of just 4. By the way, is fling golf that Japanese sport where they fling the golf discs off of...

Man, I'm bummed I've never even gotten to play anywhere that has three courses on property. However, I have played a complex that has a golf, disc golf, foot golf, and miniature golf. That's FOUR...

It's hard for me to forehand much farther than 250', so I don't use much faster than a fairway driver normally anyways.

Also forgot to mention, www.discgolfreview.com is a great site purely for learning better form and technique. I don't think it's still being updated, but the info on it is relevant nonetheless. It...

One thing I would add, make sure you've got at least 30 feet of space to practice putting. I got a practice basket, then a while later moved to a different apartment. The largest section of space...

I'm quite mentally relaxed while driving, but physically can be a bit tighter than I probably should. I think it starts with my grip on the disc. I feel like it's hard to loosen my body without...

Never said I chuck the disc aimlessly. That would be dumb. I did say I throw towards the basket. I just don't think "hit the gap". More of a mindset thing as opposed to where I'm aiming.

Pardon the dumb question, but what is a ghost card? I've played plenty of non-sanctioned events, but not many PDGA tournies, and I've never heard this term before.

Honestly, I would argue against that piece of advice. And here's why. If you think "hit the gap", your mind is still acknowledging there is a gap, and if there's a gap, that means there's something...

I think this is important. It looks like there aren't a ton of other courses close by, and given the numbers for your doubles, it seems like disc golf isn't super huge in the area yet. I think...

I really like max weight (180 gram) DX Stingrays for backhand rollers. The denser plastic doesn't get banged up as fast as a lighter weight and and the wide diameter gets over bumps better than...

Minimize rollaways would be for a layup. You can use a scoobie slider (not to be confused with a scoobie roller) to throw the disc low and upside down and slide across the ground towards where you...

At our local dubs, we often like to advise people to throw rollers. Keep in mind, I live in West Virginia where most of the courses around here are heavily wooded and very hilly. But sometimes a joke...

Wow, that does sound pretty ridiculous. Is it purely a safety thing or does he only want to have his baskets associated with championship caliber courses?

You'll get alot of in-fighting between people on both sides of the Discatcher/Mach battle. Personally, I like the Innova Discatchers the best because I think they're the most visible. I live in West...

I got it easy, my dog simply doesn't care about discs/frisbees the slightest. He won't fetch them no matter what, which is great for disc golf. He does eat lots of grass and puke a lot tho.
