I wouldn't bother when there are multiple phone numbers (also wouldn't bother w/anything I purchased fair and square).

Finally videoed myself throwing. Oof. It's not pretty. I'm not going to bother posting, because it's very obvious what needs to improve: I'm "spinning" as I throw, and not "hitting." I plant my foot...

I like it. Six months in, some things I wish I had known (or wisdom I wish I had listened to):

1. Don't try to throw hard (duh, but we nearly all do the opposite). True for so many reasons. One...

At 30'-40', I give the normal back foot push, but I also add a little rock-back, so I'm getting back onto that foot more, and pushing my hips forward into the putt more, and this gives me up to 10'...

I'd love to play competently, whether alone or with friends. The social aspect is secondary to the playing of the game. Probably somewhere around scratch golf would be great, but I don't have to get...

I have the same issues with being overly competitive with myself. I have occasional rounds when I get a bit mad. I'll give you the same advice a coach (different game) gave me a long time ago. When...

Lots of people out today. Nice weather and little to do, so I guess I should have expected it.

Picked up my disc from the basket a few times, but I didn't putt out on any tap ins. Avoided touching...

Was just wondering this the other day. Thanks for the bump. I thought it would be like 1.5x, but looks to be more like 2.2x on average.

I think I'm okay with the inherent risk of handling a disc out of the chains/basket, but I could be convinced otherwise. Seems very low risk, no?

Goes almost without saying that I'll be playing...

Necro bump rather than start a new thread.

I'm loving his journey. There's a bit of a daydreaming element to it for me, I think. Here's what happens when somebody (with some relevant skills and athletic talent) gets built into a disc golfing...

I was lucky to borrow one and it was love at first throw. But then I bought a couple of my own and haven't had much luck using them as regular throwers. I don't like them at all now, go figure.
