That is very interesting.

My only thing, when I first started, a friend of mine had been playing and could make huge drives, at least to me then. If I saw him throw, I found myself just doing a really wild flailing throw like somehow I was going to do that. So I stopped letting him throw before me.

Could that be a stance violation at about 7:13?

I opened this thread for exactly the same reason. Have played in the same group with Hammock at Monday night singles and Thursday night doubles at East Roswell. It is an odd routine, but I'd do twice that if I thought it would get me the results he gets.

BTW, gvan, nice meeting you tonight at doubles.

You are the Pete Sampras of disc golf.

I always tap my disc on my off hand 2-3 times during my x-step.

I tried not doing it, I played horribly. My roommate has to look at his footing during his x-step, I think that one's hurting his game.

I know it's completely off topic, but what's with the rainbow backgrounds on the avatars?

Some sort of "pride" thing, I hear.

Ahh, I didn't link "Scott" with "12StonesScott." Good to meet you too. I assume the 12 Stones part means you live in the Sub Division near ERP?

They're not rainbows. They're hypno mind control discs. Don't mess around or we'll make you think you're a chicken.
