Default Driving Rituals

What is your tee-off quirk? Any specific rituals that you have developed before you crush a drive?

Look for the nearest bench with a disc charger.

I make sure everyone is watching, so I don't lose my disc.

I'm right handed, always spin the disc on my left middle finger before throwing. Sometimes just for a second, sometimes longer if I'm debating throwing a different disc or it's a really tough shot to execute.

I didn't know I was doing it, but on video I've seen that while I'm lining up my drive and staring down the fairway, I'll make a waving or flapping motion with the disc in my right hand, like I'm fanning something.

The ol fanning the fart move.

Allot of people, mainly pros (don't see many chuckers doing it), do that move. I cannot stand it for some reason it makes me upset lol

I've seen the waving-thing many times, and always assumed it was to dry the throwing hand. I tried it once, and it works pretty well. Or did I just stumble into something? Either way...

I also typically do a little spinning on the middle finger of my right (throwing) hand as I wait to get on the tee. Once there, I find my line, standing pretty still, and tend to turn the disc several times, using my left to move it around in circles until it "feels" right, whatever that means. Then, most crucially, I take a deep breath and exhale before I start my run-up.

"T-minus whenever it feels right."

I basically do a much of vaguely justifiable movements tapping the disc on my leg, drying my hand(wether it needs it or not) on my pants, etc. like Nomar Garciaparra until I finally decide that it's okay to throw the shot.

Nomar! (I always thought his birth certificate was read backwards or something. Like, his name was supposed to be Ramon.)

And I love the term "vaguely justifiable." I shall incorporate it into my vernacular, with proper credit given. :thumbup:
