What if it's a bottom stamp?

I have to say Forward to myself on every putt. It started as a reminder mechanism...now I just feel naked if I putt without saying it.

When I find a lost disc not belonging to someone in my group, I'll leave it or ask someone else to carry it to the drop box. I picked one up a few years ago and my round took a very bad turn. So now I never touch a disc not belonging to me during a rd.

Whoops, thanks for the catch. I am not used to typing on my phone, so apparently auto correct took some liberties.

I am a bit superstitious about the score card. I don't mind keeping score for the whole round, but I do not like the rotating card (passed every 4-5 holes). My game seems to fall apart when its my turn to keep score

Mine's not so much superstition as it is a real mental conundrum.


I can't think about my throw (especially when putting). The second I start thinking about my throw, stance, grip, etc... then I have a bad throw or putt. You must be zen and just do it, be in the moment and make it happen. Over-thinking over-analyzing separates the body from the mind

To quote Bruce Lee, "Don't think. Feel."

I have to check to make sure the words would be facing the correction direction. It's complicated.

I have a Destroyer with the stamp wiped. I check to make sure the '169 SDS' is facing the right way.

I talk to and kiss my discs a lot before and during my throws.

In ball golf, it is traditional to exchange hand shakes after everyone in a group holes out on 18. Variation on the same theme?

My "superstition" has to do with mentally "playing the round" before I actually go out. I feel unprepared if I haven't visualized my round. Even courses I haven't played before I try to gather as much info as I can and play an imaginary round before I actually hit the course.

That sounds more like OCD.
