Default Crazy playing styles/throwing techniques... That work?!

Reading some comments on re: understable discs reminded me of playing with a guy once who would turbo putt with a driver after teeing off and was smashing the chains from well beyond 30'.

I literally could not believe what I was seeing. Different strokes for different folks for sure!

Have any friends or run into a player at event etc which you've seen some unconventional stuff that just works 4 that person? Amazing what practice can do regardless of the technique being used lol!

First one that comes to mind is Ms Azie Rogers from this video from the 2016 Phoenix Ladies Open posted today- what a run up!

I once saw a woman who did a 360 on every drive.

I played with a guy a couple years ago that would flick his putts with a driver he held/ lined up at eye level. He smashed the chains when they went in but walked a long way when he missed.

Another buddy has this crazy style he calls the "gunslinger". He holds his putter like a normal RHBH putt but holds the flight plate against the back/ side ofhis right thigh while standing with right shoulder towards the basket. He then "draws" the disc and snaps it toward the basket. He can be pretty deadly with that putt from 70'-10'. Unfortunately, inside of 10' he couldn't buy a putt inside of 10' if he won the powerball.

I once played with a guy who putted with a beat star Leopard, seemed to do okay. Said he didn't like the feel of deeper discs.

One of my doubles partners throws an old KC Pro Roc almost exclusively on approaches and it's not odd within itself, but how he throws it that is unusual.

He throws these slightly nose up shots that start turning, stall a bit and then fade out gently. They are so slow that it can't be going more than 30mph but if he's within 200 he'll have a putt after that.

One that I do occasionally is use FAF Firebirds for approaches. If I need it to stay low and can use a skip, I'll throw a thumber low to the ground and let it skip hard at the basket. Get a lot of double takes with that one.

Just dizzy, I guess, the windups were frenetic, but the throws were fairly routine.

Thanks to my father I picked up a habit young and still use it. When behind garbage, trees and such, and there is no over the top shot, but i've got room around the right on a short approach. I will toss a really over stable driver on a hyzer around them. Not uncommon there, but when you stand at about a 45 to the basket, right foot forward, and pull back the disc behind my back dipping behind my knee and coming up with a lot of spin. So the disc sort of floats around than dies hard towards the basket.
