Addicted

I am addicted to disc golf I played around a 100 rounce last yr during May to November, I live in Iowa so it's a rough to play during the winter, this yr ive gone 14 days in a row ever since it turned nice. I am concerned that I could damage my arm, part of what drives me to go so often is my desire to improve, which I have very rapidly thanks to so many rounds, right now my arm feels great but im no doctor can I be hurting my arm?

Addicted but won't play in the snow, in Iowa none the less... Lies, that's not addiction, that's a hobby! A true addict would be out there in the coldest windiest snowiest day and be happy about it. I know, because I'm out there with the other addicts. We laugh at you fair weather golfers and your "addiction"

:P

Of course, I'm not a doctor, but if it don't hurt, don't worry about it.

^^agreed! Me first 30+ rounds were in Idaho between November and March! Lots of snow and very cold! But nothing stopped me!

But I don't think you will damage your arm if you are throwing properly and take a break every few days.

I wanted to go so bad over the winter but I found that when you have to wear so many layers that you can hardly move I struggled with my game , I went off and on during the winter when it warmed but you don't have to be rude about it it's not a pissing contest to see who likes disc golf more but going 3- to 6 times a week for 7 months qualifies as an addiction In my book and when I couldn't go I would watch videos to try an see what I could improve on.

If it starts burning when you urinate, see a doctor. Until then, throw your discs.

Not meaning to be rude - forgot to use the sarcasm font, sorry.

Welcome to the addiction, you're in good company around here, one doesn't really find their way to a disc golf forum without some level of addiction, so we all feel your passion

Welcome to the addiction, cxc0154!
Don't worry, most of these guys are cool, they just saw 'addicted' and naturally gravitated to 'you think YOU'RE addicted mode. They're alright. Disc golf is an amazing sport/hobby/addiction/avocation/whatever.

I'm not a doctor, but if you feel soreness persisting, you do need to mix it up. Try a forehand only round. Just putt that day. Go with your off hand.

And some of us crazies do play in everything but lightning and typhoons. Sure, some folks have tried that, but they go on to win Darwin Awards.

Finally, for everyone's amusement:

The reason for this thread was to question wether I could damage may arm by playing so much not for people to question my addiction or love for the game I absolutely hate it when the weather is bad but I we'll play in the rain and in the wind and the snow but when it gets below 20 degrees I call it, but don't call me a fair weather golfer because a fair weather golfer well only go when it's sunny and 75.
