HeavyDisc: FOUR! Myths of Disc Golf: "April brought a quick resurgence of winter conditions to Colorado and I made haste to the mountains to recharge the batteries and sit on some chair lifts with my friend Steve. Steve's a great photographer and my mountain biking buddy and I've been hard selling him on disc golf since I started last summer.

Sarah Hokom: Sidearm driven - All Things Disc Golf

Sarah Hokom: Sidearm driven - All Things Disc Golf: "I first saw Sarah Hokom play in 2008 at a tournament in Emporia, Kansas. I had just started playing tournaments and Sarah was one of the first “really good” female players I had ever seen. She was a regular at tournaments all over the Midwest and though I didn’t know her personally, I knew OF her. Her wicked sidearm was a common topic of conversation on many of the cards I played on. Mostly because she could throw farther side arm than most of us could throw backhand."

Take disc golf for a spin - @Progressive Magazine

Take disc golf for a spin - @Progressive Magazine: "Disc golf is like “ball golf,” only you throw a specially weighted plastic disc into standing metal baskets—often placed near trees, hills or water hazards. It's addictive fun that gets you outdoors with your friends.

It even counts as exercise ... perfect for a non-athlete like me."
