Thanks for the answer, another quick one: What in your opinion are the types of discs/shots that are a must have for the average round of disc golf. I know it can vary some with what course and player ability, but just for a sort of standard.

What do you do for diet when you are playing a tourney out of town? Do you bring food or just eat whatever/fast food you can find?

you should be able to have drivers, mids, and putters that you can throw hyzer, anhyzer, and staight. You should also have some sort of workable sidearm, atleast for out shots and approaches. Now everyones distances on these things varies. You dont really need all the trick shot like thumbers, rollers, grenades and all the varieties in between. But you should be reasonably proficient at the basics

i have over the years, but i havent gotten them all in on here. Plus some of them are temp course, private courses, or just dont exsist anymore. I've gotten a bit lazy on keeping up after it got to the 250-300 course range

i dont know that i would consider my yoda, but he was the man in charlotte for a long time in disc golf!! He has taught me alot over the years, by the way he plays and how he designs courses that make you think and work on your game. He really showed me how to act when competing and being a pro! He definitely influenced me alot and made me work hard to beat him and have alot of fun while being competitive and treating the game and your fellow competitors aith respect

Cool, the MJ thread!

I want to say this....I play with this other AM girl, Victoria, and she throws Comets and Bangers all the time, especially in the woods. Those discs have cleaned up her throw so much! She's prolly throwing her drivers a good 40 ft further now.

Also, MJ, Victoria and I took your advice and tossed around the SuperHero a bunch the other day. I bought 2 to have around. When we were glow throwing at Reidsville...all of my throws were turning over right with a RHBH. **there's issues there**

But, tossing arnd that superhero really helped. We are gonna keep it up!

Thanks for the grip tips on the video and on this thread.
I am getting a cleaner release and more spin by raising my thumbpad off the disc somewhat.
Thanks for all the tips.
