When I do it I get insanely amazing snap and no accuracy...but doing it has helped me correct my regular form.

I have never done it in an actual round though..to answer the question

Novelty... maybe in a doubles round if I had ALOT of room. I gotta have room for a ridiculous AnHyzer.

I'm not coordinated enough to get much benefit from a 360 drive, I don't get any more distance (probably because I have no idea what I'm doing), and I lose a lot of accuracy.

Especially with old guys walking on the course.


I've never seen anyone do one during a round and honestly I would laugh. Most teepads I would imagine are not wide enough to do it safely and you would have to have a very open hole. I guess I figure if Jeremy Koling can throw a flick with a simple run up over the water at Winthrop there are better ways to find distance than a 360.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.
And I remember playing with him when he was just starting out :/...

I haven't tried one. I don't plan on it either.

Found a vid of a guy (2nd one) throwing 360... it looks like he does it all the time.

I'm pretty sure mcbeth is a distance competition guy, but I doubt he uses it for normal golf

The scott stokely vid has a decent breakdown.

At lola, a longer 9 hole, a river through the course hinders flow. You have to walk back nine to the road/bridge. Road/bridge to hole 1's basket is the only place I try a 360....unsucessfully

Ive seen a guy do this with amazing success, but not the 360 you guys have seen. He was a state champion discus thrower, so he throws disc golf discs the same way. The only downside is he can only throw distance shots (some flex, hyzer flips, or straight) or huge hyzers, no annys, with this style.

I get plenty of D out of my X-step. "Discraft disc golf clinic: More distance now" demonstrates this perfectly (Sorry, youtube is blocked here, so I can't link it in). Put your butt to the target and you'll get about the same amount of momentum without having to worry about falling down.
