The Art of Great Disc Golf by C.V.K.
Disc Golf is really simple, But we insist on making it complicated.
This is an educational format designed to help Disc Golfers of all levels.
I have been playing Disc Golf for over 35 years.
I am here to share some techniques, give you some pointers and tell everyone some cool stories that I have experienced in my time.
Techniques: Teeing off on an elevated tee pad: Keep in mind that your will be aiming lower on your throw to help prevent your throw from going too far to your hyser side. You will also want to release you Golf Disc more level or even with a slight anhyser angle. This allows your Golf Disc a better chance to go further down the fairway with a longer glide path. When you release your Golf Disc at an upward angle from an elevated tee pad the result will be a shot that has minimal distance and will also want to hyser off to the release side.
Pointers: Aim more to your right ( if you are right handed and throwing back handed) or just the opposite for left handed or side arm throws. Your drives are the longest flying throws you do and by giving them a greater chance to recover from your slight anhyser throw the better your results will be. The normal result from teeing off on an elevated is a shot that hysers off more than you wanted. Figure out how to compensate for that result. You can aim more to the right, use more of an anhyser release angle or by using a less stable Golf Disc.
Story time: When I started playing Disc Golf almost all the discs where under stable and that forced the players to throw with a hyser release on all their throws. So we all learned how the control the turn over aspect that every throw tended to have. Today’s Golf Discs are so much more stable and all have more tendency to hyser. So learning to give them more of a anhyser angle on your release is important in today’s Disc Golf game. It’s kinda interesting to see how much they have changed though out the years. Today’s Disc Golfers have so many more choices and different options in the Golf discs they choose to throw. So please remember that fact if the one’s you are throwing aren’t quite doing what you want them to. With so many options I’m sure you can find some that will work for you.
Thank you for visiting. I would love to hear from you so please leave a comment.
