Take a break, I am in the process of my second week of NO DG.

Take a look thru this thread, it may help a bit. The topic is a tad different but there are some good ideas on what to do/try when you get frustrated with your game or yourself.

Good read in your thread discguy.... I'm almost at that point. So focused on the score, and improving, but I end up being miserable and beyond frustrated at the end of a round.

However, I don't do much real practice, I just go play complete rounds. I"m going to give a shot at field work and focused practice to target areas in hopes of some improvements.

But as it stands now, it's rarely fun to go play anymore...

Have a friend film you. It is so much easier to know what your doing wrong if you can actually see yourself throw. Things that may feel right might be wrong. You will notice that in film. Then just try to make your form look like the instructional videos out there (at least to an extent).

Also try to improve one thing form wise at a time. Ex. I've been working on reach back and pull through recently. Next is going to be footwork and weight shift. If you try to change/fix everything at once it makes you think about too many things (at least for me) to be helpful.

aside from what has been said here, check this site out to shore up your form

also a book titled "Golf is not a game of perfect" by Bob Rotella, is an excellent mental book that most certainly applies to our game

Also practice putts from the 15-20' range until you hit near 100%. These are the difference makers.

Practice hitting makeable targets on drives and approaches. Play within your skills and go after makeable shots and easy approaches.

I'll agree with the general sentiment you don't need to throw super far to score well... but if one issue is spraying drives left and right with no idea then you could also use some form work.

Get some drive video of yourself and post it in the critique section. What you will learn about balance and throwing should translate to all of your throws not just high power drives. For me, power and consistency have been building together.

For upshot practice, and it can work for putting as well I really like playing catch. Same disc over and over and no walking to pick up 5 or 6 or 15 discs at the end that maybe you've sprayed all over the place.

Just have fun. I know it sounds like lame advice, but every time I start getting frustrated with disc golf my game falls off a cliff.

Don't worry about your score, stay relaxed, and always approach the next shot with the attitude that you ARE going to nail it.
