Hitting tight fairways during tournament play
Just curious to see what you guys use as far as strategy/technique and equipment when your playing a tournament with in your opinion tight fairways. I played one this weekend that was wide open for the first round and tight for the second round. I struggled quite a bit during round two.

Probably the only thing that I had going for me last weekend was the Comet. Straight straight straight, distance a close second.

Flex shot pig.

I agree with the "control first, distance second"... Depending on how tight, I would either hyzer flip a mamba, hyzer flip a leopard, or throw a roc

Not that my accuracy is anything special, but 200' down the middle is better than any D in the briars

Practice, practice, practice!
Tight fairways can be your best friend in a tournament because so much of the field is going to struggle.
As far as a strategy goes I try to take advantage of the fh. You can launch a fh shot only 2 feet off the ground well in excess of 300'. If you hit a tree no big deal the odds are good you'll hit the ground before you get too far off the fairway.

If you don't have a workable fh and have to throw bh its best to keep it neutral and slow, axis/buzzz SS type discs. You don't lose much overall D and gain control.

I strongly recommend adding a fh to your game if you don't have one.

I slow way down and just use 1 or 2 step run ups to keep my eyes on the target line as long as possible. If I can get through the tree gap, any more distance is gravy on that shot so I'm happy. I use my Stalker, Valkyrie, or Roc for those shots. Minimum fade or skip off line.

Throw your straight shot with the disc you throw straight shots with just like all other rounds that are not during a tournament.
Why would it be different during a tournament?

I just throw like I always do. My run up is already more of a walk up because most courses around here have lots of trees and tight fairways. If you don't usually change your style for tight fairways don't do it during a tournament.

SethH 05-07-2012 09:33 PM

I usually keep my full run up because it helps me release the same way every time, but I throw very relaxed. The less I try to put any power on it the straighter and farther it goes. (This is just my normal wooded course strategy, never played in a tourney.)
