Default Really bad habit

I have this really bad habit that when I release a disc poorly, I look away. It's almost like I don't want to see how bad the throw was, but the issue is that I don't see where it lands. lol

Does anybody else do this?

guilty. then you turn around REALLY fast so you can hopefully catch where it lands.

I also do this sometimes to grab another one to throw and forget about

Yes and usually when shanked into the deepest darkest woods with my most camouflage or expensive disc.

My fiances son makes it a habit to throw and turn away before the disc comes to rest on every hole; which is one thing if we are watching, but most of the time, he will hurry and throw while we are paying attention to something else. It suddenly makes for a lot of wasted time looking for a disc in an entirely different area than where it really is.

Argh! My brother does this all the time! He'll shank a bad drive and then he throws a hissy fit and I have to watch to make sure we can find it. That drives me crazy.

I've gotten into a bad habit of turning around to grab another disc on good throws b/c I can actually throw putters and mids far enough that they hang in the air long enough for me to take my eyes off them and still see them land.

Soon he'll be your son and you will be able to ground him.
