Superstitions

I'm sure this thread has been done before but not for a couple years but I'm a hockey player and I have to put my equipment on the exact same way every game, so I was wondering if I had any superstitions when I came to disc golf. I think I have to spin each disc on my finger until its time for me to tee off lol

Was just wondering what kind of superstitions you guys had?

Mine is If i putt out of turn I will always miss. So I make sure to never do that.

When someone does that and misses in our group. I'll yell "it's the curse!" I get looked at like I'm crazy or somebody laughs.

You can't say wind on the course. You can say "w" but not wind.

I follow the same one as Matt. Putting out of turn generally means a miss.

One of mine is you never talk about the weather. Especially if it looks like rain. I don't even like people speculating about the weather the day before a round. Don't tempt the gods.

I don't change my disc selection after stepping on the tee. Walking off the tee pad to my bag and then back meant a bad throw was coming. Now I just bring two or three discs on the pad with me and set down the ones I wont use. Is that a superstition?
