I ran into several snakes but thing I remember most what I think was a sizable dog skeleton like 10 feet away one tee one year. It's a course I played many times and so do a ton of others, so it...

If that's the case and they can throw it well, more power to them. Even on identical models, I want to feel the specific disc out with a few throws, especially if the other ones I have are broken in.

I had a portable disc golf basket, dga mach lite, shortly since playing on my 4 acres five years back. It's one of those half cloth and half metal contraptions that fold up and the cloth section...

One of the things I think should be deemphasized is the tendency in some corners of disc golf to say purely "form" or "technique" over everything else that many do. It's important, yeah, but not the...
