Tee Off And Fly Freely - DGA | Disc Golf Association

Tee Off And Fly Freely - DGA | Disc Golf Association: "“Steady” Ed Headrick (PDGA #001) was affectionately referred to as the Father of Disc Sports, and more specifically the Father of Disc Golf  for his role in the creation of the  sport we all know and love.  He tirelessly traveled the United States and other parts of the world spreading the joy of the flying disc and planting the seeds of disc golf everywhere he went. With the ever growing popularity of the sport, it’s safe to say that Ed’s early work helped lay the foundation for disc golf’s current success."

- You should start new players with understable discs so they don't develop bad habits like OAT.

- You should be able to forehand any disc you have.

- OS discs hide OAT and other problems with your throws much more than US discs do.

- Top FH throwers will FH US discs."

HeavyDisc: Improving Back Hand Distance

HeavyDisc: Improving Back Hand Distance: "I watch an absurd a reasonable (depending on who you ask) amount of disc golf on youtube and the one thing I've noticed in the difference between the top pros and the top Am's is how consistent the pros are. Top pros will put a 200' shot within 30' of a pin 9 out of 10 times.

At the core of consistency in most sports is creating body mechanics that are reproducible. Consider a pro baseball pitcher throwing a pitch or a pro tennis player hitting a serve: each repetition is nearly indistinguishable from the next. Once it's completely reproducible - it's much easier to be consistent and can be counted on to go where you want it to."
