When i actually got involved with the club and saw how running events actually works. I suck at disc golf but i love puting on a fun event or is this just he lightbulb form moment, i don't have any of those, if i wasn't a good putter i would probably just quit.

Maybe a lightbulb moment now that Udi*k wants 4.99 to KEEP SCORE...guess I'm playing by Steady Ed rules now "whoever has the most fun wins"!

Instead, try going to the field with a goal of hitting the same distance you have been throwing, but with 20% less effort. Focusing on less effort will keep you loose and get you to slow down and you’ll probably end up smoothing one out there 40 feet further than you’ve ever thrown.
This is great advice. I've coached for many years (volleyball), and always advocated "process over outcome". I still do. It's just hard to be patient with yourself!

As far as personal lightbulbs, mine is probably "the Elephant Walk reset button". I'm still pretty new at this (8 months in), and I don't have form/muscle memory locked in. But nearly every time I'm struggling with X (rounding, slips, griplock/bad line, etc.), it's been very useful to slow down, take those heavy steps, and find that legato rhythm and "late" arm. Just a couple of those and I'm usually back in reasonable form and can feel where I went wrong.

Per the email I got from UDisc, the actual amount is increasing to $14.99.

But until May 17 you can re-up at $4.99 and extend your current account for one more year.

@waddball that link is exactly what I'm talking about.

Yeah it was interesting before I was keeping things pretty flat through the throw and when going for distance throw it flat and have it S curve.

Gurthie stepped up and threw some massive very high throws where the disc was high and anhyzering the entire way for like 600 feet. When going for distance I just think to keep the disc nose down and tilted right side down for the entire throw instead of an s curve. To do this at the back of your pull the disc is really low to the ground and on a hyzer angle and where you release it's much higher while having the release be anhyzer at the last second and very nose down, aiming way left of course. Thinking about it and watching that link posted after I do think having your wrist angled straight down may be the biggest key to make this work and the tip I'll give my buddy that's a year in trying to throw further.

Hope that helps, hard to explain with just words.

I have tested this statement, and I can tell you that slow is smooth and smooth is 280'. These results are repeatable and verifiable. Science!
