Default Share Your Quick Tips

Disc golf instruction can get pretty complex, and with good reason. This thread is for posting any quick and (relatively) easy to implement tips that you've found helps some aspect of your game. Something others could easily try for themselves today. I'll get the ball rolling.

Drive with the elbow. From the reachback, moving slowly at first, focus on driving your elbow toward your target, like you're elbowing someone standing between you and the target. This helps ensure your forearm and wrist stay on the correct line and catapults the forearm forward, levered around and pulled by the elbow. I get my best snap and distance when I do this.

What's your quick tip?

The biggest tip I can give to beginners (especially for beginning tournament players) is to not stress out about what other players think about you. We were all beginners at this thing at one point!

Hyzerflip is for those who can't learn to throw.

Think of "pouring the teapot" to help get the nose of the disk down. This helped my game more than any other tip.
