Learn to throw slower discs first. Develop smooth form by learning to throw putters and midranges well. Slower discs are good at telling you if you're doing things right or wrong – they'll wobble off line if thrown incorrectly or hold the angle of release if thrown properly. When it's time to move up to faster discs, you'll see much better results if you already know how to control your angles and avoid off-axis torque. If you live near or get the chance to play with a pro in your area, ask them for help. They likely have a solid understanding of what it takes to throw well and can help you figure some things out.
I had two knee surgeries in 2014 that knocked me out of playing disc golf for 18 months. I wasn't sure if I'd get to play competitively ever again, but in January 2016, I decided to give competitive disc golf another shot at a B-tier in Fort Worth. I had a very mediocre first round which landed me on the fourth card, but I was just happy to be playing again. Though the course was a longer layout during the second round, I put together a bogey-free 1063 rated round that jumped me up to 3rd place. I'm honestly just overjoyed to be getting to compete and see all my friends out on the course again!
Dynamic Discs = family. They treat everyone as they would their best friends and they're always looking to make things bigger and better for disc golf and for everyone involved. I love being a part of the family and always look forward to what's coming next from Dynamic Discs!
