I checked out his appearance at the Preserve Championship the past couple of years. He made the lead card in a round or two each of the past 2 years. He doesn't actually start with the hips forward...

I tried map scoring for the first time today. I didn't really enjoy that. It just seemed to be a distraction. I think I prefer to just to score only after completing the hole. Maybe save the full...

I wondered that about the basket locations. I have one course I play a lot that always seems to have at least a couple of basket locations that don't match the UDisc setup.

Thread resurrection. Heading to Maui 5/31 - 6/9. Trying to hit multiple spots, but if I have to pick just one, it sounds like connecting with a guide to do Upcountry is the way to go. Anyone...

Which UDisc Scoring Method do you use most?

Just curious about what everyone uses.

Do you ignore scoring completely and just go out and enjoy the round?

Do you stick with scores only? This is what I typically use because it's the...

Just a personal update. I'm dealing with some rotator cuff issues that my orthopedic doc said are not likely related to throwing, at least not forehand. The only restriction she recommended was not...

Seems correct to me. RHFH - Right hip leads right shoulder leads right elbow leads right wrist leads disc.

My interpretation of 'lead with the elbow' is that it should be leading the wrist, hand,...

I noticed something practicing upshots this week that I thought some people might find a bit helpful. It's more of a form queue than an epiphany. I've been forehand only for about 2 months while...

Stokely talks about this a bit in one of his videos. He recommends at least starting out with either a pendulum or a windmill backswing, whichever is most comfortable. But he stresses that both of...

First thing that jumped out to me is that your momentum is moving both forward and to the right. Try to keep all of your momentum moving forward. I actually found that a traditional X-step worked...

I have very limited experience. I've used Roadrunners, Thunderbirds, and a CD2. I've been throwing primarily RHFH for the past month due to some rotator cuff impingement.

Likely adding to your shoulder / hip separation, which is important for forehand throws. Like loading a spring.

No, that isn't right. The lower pars version is right. That main layout with the pars listed is way too generous anyway. Those pars would probably be appropriate for a junior.

When I'm driving forehand, I don't focus on the active wrist movement. It just happens. It's only on touch shots, generally 200 feet or less, that I have to focus on the wrist flick.

As far as I...

Finally played this one yesterday. It's fun. It's almost a mini-golf layout for disc golf. Definitely tests your accuracy though. Quite a few 'island' fairways and greens. Lots of ace runs. ...
