All new players need to learn about four basic things.
#1 - Disc golf is about having fun and enjoying yourself at one of the coolest competitions in the world today; never forget that is why we play.
#2 - If you really want to be good, you should spend more time throwing on the practice field than on the course.
#3 - (and a mistake I, unfortunately made) Learn to throw the discs that match your arm speed and ability first. As you get better form, better snap, and better arm speed, then move to faster and faster discs. When I teach beginners, I give them a putt/approach disc and a mid-range disc to learn with.
#4 - Being able to putt well not only can take a few strokes off your score, it will also open more possibilities and change the way you mentally size up each hole.
My most memorable moments were probably shooting two personal bests in 5 days, both hot rounds of the day in my division, at the 2013 Am Worlds in the home of Dynamic Discs, Emporia, Kansas. And the day I was invited to join this great team!!!
