Default Little Tips and Tricks

Since we have a lot more newly initiated onto the forum lately I thought it be nice if we all shared little tips for helping our game. Since, like the Humpty Dance, no two will do this the same, share a tip that helps you stay on your disc golf game.

"Stalking" the tee pad. Since footwork is crucial to a good throw and starting too fast ruins mine, I like to slowly tip toe onto the box and ease into an X step. This helps me overcome some short tee pads too.

I'm sorry I told you to throw over that 80' pond, I honestly thought you could make it and that you could throw over 100'

hahahaha, nice.

Learn Accuracy. Distance takes time. Worry about accuracy. Distance comes with playing more. Accuracy takes practice.

Play with pros. As humbling as it can be you can learn a lot and usually you will have a really fun round.

If there is one thing you want to practice most it should be putting.

When gripping the disc for a backhand throw, make sure your first knuckle of your index finger is above the flight plate. This will solve a lot of nose-up issues. A better description of this and other tips on grip can be found here:

nothing like having your butt handed to you in a round to help you learn where and how to improve.

my tip:
Remember that every body is different. That means every set of hands is different so while there are lots of great guides to grip, you will have to find what works for your hand. Don't force yourself to adopt a technique that doesn't work for you just because it works for someone else.
