    Slow Everything Down
    Slow is smooth and Smooth is far (Danny Lindahl)
    Don’t try to 100% every single throw
    Concentrate on form
    You can start with just one aspect, and then once you have that down, start improving another
    Don’t work on too many things at once

  • Beaver State Fling – Disc Golf Show Episode 48

    Disc Golf Show – Show Notes

    Brought to you in part by Final 9 Sports and the Patreon for the Disc Golf Show!

    Hello and welcome to the Disc Golf Show Episode 48? 4 YEARS!!!

     

    Today is Sunday, June 4th.

     

    And our guest host is Jeff from the Beaver State Fling presented by KEEN, which will be held this coming weekend, June 9-11!

     

    If you don’t know, Jeff Mittl is the current and long standing TD for the Beaver State Fling. Jeff earned himself a PDGA Tournament Director of the year award in 2010 for his work with the BSF since taking the TD reigns in 2009 and continues to develop and improve the event year after year. Jeff has maintained NT status for the BSF since 2009 with the exception of 2014 when Portland hosted Pro World’s and Jeff of course was an instrumental part of that core team of organizers. Jeff Mittl has had two other TDs helping him along the way with Michael Phillips in 2009-10 and Jeff Hagerty 2011-2017. The Jeff Duo has proven to be a well oiled machine over the last 6 years supported by an amazing staff of core volunteers.

    News:

    1. Utah Open – Disc Golf Pro Tour Event
      1. Round 1
        1. Four way tie at top in MPO with Bobby Musick, Ulibarri, Koling, and Wysocki all at -8
          1. Paige dropped out due to family emergency
        2. Catrina Allen and Jessica Weese tied for the lead at +6
          1. Due to the miscommunication and no rules in the caddy book, many people played the hole wrong and didn’t use the drop zone
          2. What we heard is that the players meeting had mention of this, but nothing was in the caddy book
          3. This would constitute a 2 stroke penalty on all those that didn’t use the drop zone if their disc went in the water, but no penalties were added due to the confusion
        3. Bit of controversy over a drop zone that is on one of the holes, 16 I think
        1. Catrina and Jessica battle back and forth and end up tied going into the final round
        2. Battle between Sockibomb and Big Jerm
        3. Anthon has hot round and finishes with a -9
        4. Wysocki ends the round with a 3 stroke lead over Anthon, Koling, and Ulibarri
      2. Round 2
        1. The battle between Cartina and Jessica continued, pushing the final round into a playoff that lasted 3 holes until Jessica Weese was able to come out on top
          1. Dana Vicich threw the overall hot round of -12, giving him 3rd
          2. Anthon and Wysocki both shot a -11, leaving Ricky with the win
            1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAc8aj0hn7g
          3. Not only did Ricky win, he did it in style with an ace on hole 18
        2. As for MPO, it was also a battle
      3. Round 3

    1. Discraft – Punisher (Distance Driver)
      Discraft Punisher is a very fast distance driver that performs best with lots of power behind it. Expect extra glide whether you’re throwing backhand or sidearm, and a consistent fade into your target.” – by Discraft
      http://www.pdga.com/announcements/whale-discraft-punisher-17-distance-driver
    2. Discraft – Ringer GT (Putt & Approach)
      “It’s a beefier Ringer! Your short game will get an instant boost when you deploy Ringer GT. Discraft has taken all the best attributes of Ringer and added a subtle Groove Top that increases grip confidence while shifting the stability of Ringer from 1.5 to Ringer GT‘s 1.7 rating. Players use it more often for driving and approaching when a soft landing is mandatory and wind needs managing.” – by Discraft

    • Review from ITunes: One of the best DG podcasts going!

     

    1. in iTunes by Nicolai from Norway on May 13, 2017
    2. Love the these dudes! Seriously, if you’re into disc golf then this is IMO one of the two best podcasts currently being made. News, gear, discs and most of all lots of fun – I’ve literally been stared down with the “what is up with you??” look for laughing so hard during field work.

    News: (Nick) (Brought to you by Ozone Discs, check out the new Andro C overstable midrange)

    1. DG Pro Worlds
      1. Round 1
        1. Wysocki takes a 1 stroke lead right out of the gates at -14 with McBeth at -13 and several others right behind at Jones East (McBeth was ahead at -15, however, played a hole wrong, addressed by himself, and received a 2 stroke penalty which was applied during the next round)
        2. Catrina Allen take an early lead over the field with a -5 at Peter Pan
      2. Round 2
        1. Wysocki stays on top throwing a -13 at Jones East, closest to him is Locastro just 4 strokes back
        2. Catrina Allen stays in the lead with a three stroke cushion as Country Club while Hokom makes a run
      3. Round 3
        1. Wysocki continues to keep adding to his lead with a -12 at Country Club extending his lead to 8 over Locastro and 9 over McBeth
        2. Catrina still holds on to the lead with Pierce just a couple strokes back at Jones East
      4. Round 4
        1. Wysocki doesn’t have a great round at Country Club Gold, but neither do Locastro and McBeth, which enables him to keep a lead over Locastro by 7, and McBeth by 9
        2. Paige decides to show up at Jones East and make a charge pushing her way into 1st, while Valarie slips by Catrina as well into 2nd
      5. Semi-Finals
        1. McBeth tries to make a run shooting a -13 at Jones East pushing him within 5 strokes of Wysocki going into the Final 9
        2. Valarie makes a late run and pushes into 1st at Peter Pan with just a single stroke lead over Catrina and Paige
      6. Finals
        1. Wysocki plays it clean and safe, making McBeth and Locastro taking more chances to cut the lead which ends up not working out for either of them and Wysocki takes his 1st Worlds’ Championship Title at Country Club!
        2. After her Semi-Finals run, Valarie just keeps her head down and plays solid disc golf while Cat and Paige make too many errors during the round at Country Club, which in turn makes Valarie Jenkins a 4-time Worlds’ Champion!

     

    1. Disc Golf Pro Tour – Ledgestone Open
      1. Paul McBeth and Catrina Allen both have dominating wins

     

    1. Brent Hambrick Memorial Open

      2. That much closer to getting a new course, and possibly more!

     

    1. Quick shout out to Patty Robinson (sponsored by Lat64), our buddy who was in town from Australia. He travelled up and down the west coast playing disc golf as well as playing in the Oregon Open and the PDGA/WFDF Team DG World Championships that took place in Vancouver, Canada!
      1. By the way, USA came back strong on the final day to take the win!

      2. Round 1
        1. Nate Sexton has a killer, course record, round of -17 over the 22 holes
        2. Mitchell Privette gets an ace on hole 10
        3. McBeth not having the best first round sits at -8, with Wysocki at -9, they and others have a lot of work ahead to catch up to Sexton

        1. Wysocki put on the afterburners and pushed up to be in 2nd, just 2 strokes back of Nate Sexton
        2. Eagle had a great round, putting him on the lead card for the final round again, seems to be his M.O. lately
        3. FPO division battle continues between Sarah Hokom and Catrina Allen
      4. Round 3
        1. Sarah Hokom takes the win. Sarah and Catrina would have gone into a playoff had it not been for an incorrect play from Catrina during round 2
          1. Apparently, she didn’t take an O.B. shot from the drop zone when she should have, costing her 2 strokes and the chase for a playoff
        2. The battle ended up being between Sexton and Wysocki, coming down to a playoff totalling around 6-8 sudden death hole, hole 1 and hole 22
          1. Sexton had a chance to seal the win, but came up low on a 15 ft putt, giving Wysocki the chance to continue the battle
          2. Sexton had a chance to continue the playoff, however, skipped off the basket, right side, to give the win to Wysocki
        3. Something to note is that there was a heckler
          1. With a course record -17 from Sexton, he had stated that, for his own personal taste, the course played a little “soft”, and that he would rather a good round be a -6 or -7, instead of his own -17
          2. He ended up hitting a tree on one of the holes, kicking off the fairway into the rough and a heckler stated something to the effect of “is the course still soft”
          3. Per Nate, he stated “Here are my thought on the situation, and before I get started just let me say I talked to the heckler in question and all is forgiven. There is a relationship between the intimacy of the fan/athlete interaction and how acceptable heckling is. Of course people will yell at a baseball or basketball game. At a disc golf event, the fans have unprecedented access to the players. If our game continues to follow this model I don’t think heckling can be tolerated. If we start charging money for admission and keep the fans back behind ropes or in bleachers then that might change things. Interesting topic to be sure!” Thank you to Nate for giving us a comment straight from the source.

      2. Energy/Orange Mango – a little like EmergenC, but good
      3. Active/Grape – was worried as grape flavors are tricky to pull off, however, ended up being my favorite
      4. Active/Fruit Punch – let me preface as I’m not a fan of fruit punch in general, reminded me of Chloroseptic spray, but pretty good none the less. If you can get me to drink a full cup of anything fruit punch, it has to be good!

    Techniques (Justin)

    1. Picking your shots
      1. Applies to more than Driving, but it is very applicable on technical shots
      2. If I throw short on my drive is it a better shot for my upshot?
      3. Maybe you have a better pistol (forehand) then a backhand, favor that shot on your drive. (placement)
      4. Putts and upshots – place the shot for the sure par, vrs going past it and end up worse (down the hill, in the water, etc)
      5. Ego, don’t let it get in the way.

    Techniques (Justin)

    1. When driving (backhand) what do I look at?
      1. Max distance focusing on release point
      2. Even with normal drives your eyes will come off the target for a split second
        1. Really Focus on the release point!
          1. This means practice, practice, practice.

    Techniques (Justin)

      1. Disc Golf Driving Technique
    • Arm Movement
        1. Focus on pulling in a straight line
        2. Using the Triceps to pull through
        3. Think of a lawn mower sitting on a flat surface about shoulder high
        4. Straight across the nips!
        5. Use body lean to control the line (hyzer, anhyzer) the pull should be straight
        6. Don’t curl your wrist!
        7. Its not strength that causes distance, its arm speed and technique

    Listener Feedback (Justin)

    1. Bob Allen – Thanks for becoming a patreon member!

    1. Discraft – Undertaker
      1. Very stable

     

    Techniques (Justin)

      1. Driving Techniques for Forehand
    • Grip:
          1. Two fingers under the rim.
          2. Stacked
          3. Or one the pointer finger curled back, leaving the middle finger straight out. Thumb pinching the top, not too tight.
    • Footwork
    • Feet perpendicular to your target
    • More of a skip forward, front foot goes forward and the back foot sets down right behind it, and the front foot takes the last step forward.
    • Throw
          1. Reach back,
          2. The palm of your hand should be pointing up, try to maintain a flat level disc throughout the motion.
          3. Your wrist should come back as you step forward to throw, and it should snap forward as you follow through with your index and middle fingers pointing at your target.
          4. Your elbow is the pivot point. Try to put it close to your hip as you rotate forward.
    • Follow Through
        1. You must follow through by extending your arm, and not trying to stop the natural follow through motion of your arm.

    Techniques (Justin)

    1. Disc Golf Driving Techniques for Backhand
      1. Establish a good foundation
        1. Good Footwork
        2. Gradually increase from standstill, to one step, to two step, to x step
        3. Transfer the weight from the back leg to the front leg
          1. Weight over the front left helps to keep the disc down
        4. Ball of Foot? Or Heel for spin?
          1. According to Simon Lizotte it doesn’t matter. Unless you are going for MAX distance in a competition for distance. Then use the heel.

    Techniques (Justin)

    1. Wind Factors and your game
      1. Head Wind, and Tailwinds
      2. :. A tailwind will make the disc more overstable. It comes from behind you and pushes the disc forward.
      3. A headwind is coming straight at you, pushing the disc back making it more understable. You will need a lower point of release as compared to a tailwind.
      4. Crosswinds:  Depending on how you are throwing (right or left handed) and if you are throwing a Hyzer or Anhyzer shot. The disc will behave differently. With crosswinds coming from left to right for a RHBH player Hyzers will push to the ground and anhyzers will tend to lift

    Techniques (Justin)

      1. The Backhand Roller
      2. This is more so the release angle than the disc, however the disc does matter.
      3. Cool Innova Charts on the form of the backhand roller
    1. Something to practice before you throw it into your game, but it’s something that you may want to practice for to have in your arsenal

    Listener Feedback (Justin)

    1. Joseph A Johnson, via our Facebook Page, is inquiring about “Off Season” training
      1. Whether due to time of year or location of where you live
      2. Where to practice during the “Off Season”
      3. Where he lives there is 2ft of snow, so practicing outdoors isn’t really an option

    Discs

      1. Latitude 64 – Cutlass (Distance Driver) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/ahoy-cutlass-here
        1. “The Cutlass is our new cutting edge distance driver. With good speed, good glide and a predictable fade it will be a sharp weapon on the disc golf course. Flight rating: 13, 5, 0, 3″

     

    • Not a beginner disc

     

      1. Latitude 64 – Compass (Midrange) (Ricky Wysocki Signature Disc) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/compass-mapped-out-wysocki
        1. This stable and versatile midrange has been developed in cooperation with world class player Ricky Wysocki Flight rating: 5, 5, 0, 1″
      2. Element Discs – Iridium (Putt & Approach) (First Release from this company) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/element-iridium-approaches-confidence
        1. “The first release from Element Discs, the Iridium, is a beadless putt & approach disc featuring one of the thinnest flight plates out there.The flight numbers: 2, 3, 0, 2″
      3. Dynamic Discs – Warrant (Understable Midrange) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/dynamic-disc-warrants-your-attention
        1. The Warrant is the understable disc that our customers have been requesting. On stronger throws, it will hold the anhyzer angle for the whole flight without flipping over or rolling. When distance isn’t the goal, the Warrant will hold just about any line that it is thrown on.
      4. Kastaplast – Reko (Putter) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/rekos-town
        1. Get your Reko for those straight putts and approaches, or give it a little hyzer on drives and watch it turn over gently.
        2. Reko is Swedish for good, reliable or decent. The world needs more Reko. Flight specs: 3/3/0/1″
      5. Las Aves – Wo-Hoo (Mid-range) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/las-aves-disc-golf-releases-wo-hoo

        2. Wo-Hoo is virtually beadless and has flight specs of 6/5/0/2
      6. Discmania – PDx (Overstable Driver) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/discmania-brings-pdx-world-tour
        1. The all new Discmania PDx brings together the best of two worlds: The speed and overstability of Discmania’s meat hook driver PD2 and the controllability and versatility of Discmania’s possibly best known all-around pro-level driver, the PD. The PDx is the perfect hybrid of these two crowd favorites.”
      7. Latitude 64 – Culverin (Overstable Driver) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/fire-away-culverin
        1. Fire away with the Culverin overstable control driver.

    Techniques (Justin)

      1. Putting

     

    • Weight shift
    • Establishing an aim point
    • Spin, Push, Turbo, does it matter?
    • Maybe use more than one basket
    • Join a putting league
    • The #1 most important tip – Practice
    • daily if you can
    • 15 minutes at least

     

    Listener Feedback (Justin)

    1. Michael Deeter (Sky Candy Discs) – Justin talks a lot and tone down the sponsorship details, might come across as a little overboard. Relate new discs to how we throw other discs that have been out for awhile, so others have a better idea of our level of play.

    Techniques (Justin)

    1. We talk a lot about driving. I think that Dan Beto really breaks it down well. Personally I am practicing making it smooth and concentrating on the hit. We are going to get some videos of each of us driving.
    2. My point is that maybe we should revisit the tutorials from pros (clinics are amazing for this too) in different stages of our game. I’m constantly trying to improve and as we gather more skill and understanding it’s important to review and work on the basics.

    1. If you don’t already know, Paul McBeth finally won the USDGC!
      1. Tied with Wysocki going into hole 17, Wysocki misses the green twice
      2. Paul drops his first shot about 20 ft from the basket, basically seals it

     

      1. The woman who was hit by a disc at Manhattan Beach back in 2014 received $3 million from the city
        1. http://www.dailynews.com/general-news/20151013/woman-blinded-by-flying-golf-disc-in-park-receives-3-million-from-manhattan-beach
        2. The course at Polliwog Park was indefinitely closed back in 2014 following a closed-door City Council meeting
        3. Park shouldn’t have been there in the first place due to an ordinance banning any type of golf, in any form. The ordinance was ignored from the get-go.
        4. “I know (my client) was extremely happy they actually shut the course down,” Lederer said. “One of her goals was to make that park safe again.”
        5. But not before a 6-year-old boy sustained a life-threatening brain injury when a golf disc struck him as he played at the park in November 2013, more than a year after Goodbody suffered her horrific injury. Lederer said he has filed a lawsuit in that case, too.
        6. An accomplished disc golfer and course designer told the Daily Breeze in 2014 that the busy park was unsuitable for the sport.
        7. Disc golf course design book focuses on underutilized landscapes – Interview with Michael Plansky on All things Disc Golf
          Spraying projectiles hundreds of feet away from your person vastly extends the controlled footprint of the activity. There are of course issues of safety and appropriateness, especially around automobiles. I think city areas that are already well used are inappropriate.

    • Does that change your opinion of the suit/verdict?
    1. Disc Golf Pro Tour http://www.discgolfprotour.com/
      1. Created by Steve Dodge from Vibram
      2. Held June – September 2016
      3. Five events with the championship in September, mainly staying in the Northeast
      4. Very open to making sure other disc manufacturers will be involved
      5. 2016 as a test year

      2. Major controversy over this tour
      3. If you don’t like the person organizing this tour, concentrate on the idea behind it, not the person!
      4. Either way, we will learn what works, or what not to do!
    1. Shoutout to SmashboxxTV and their one year anniversary!

     

    1. The list of PDGA A-Tier events has been released, now the B and C tiers are starting to be posted.

    Techniques (Justin)

      1. Slowing your game down, and mental focus for each shot
    • Don’t be concerned with everyone else
    • Focus on slowing down before you get ready to throw your shot
    • Visualize the path your disc needs to take

    Listener Feedback (Justin) brought to you by Disc Golf Show Cafe Press – Support us and pick up a shirt/hoodie etc.

    Well guys first off Thank u so much for ur donations to the event.  the October 17th first ever family discgolf fundraiser for the school was a huge success.  

     

    We had 36 people attend.

    they raised about 1000$ and after food and some expensis they made 547$ raised for the school.  It was such a hit.  I will b doing it again in the spring. It will now maybe b a 2 times every school year event.  

     

    Also the day after one of the dads went out and purchased a basket.

     

    You guys and Eric Mcabe were the biggest contributors amongst Patrick McCormick, and Johny McCray, and 290 discgolf, and myself.   

    So once again guys thank u so much.  

     

    Jason Baston.

    Techniques (Justin)

      1. What do you do with that second arm, the one you are not throwing with?
    • Generally keep it out of the way
    • Place it down by your side
    • Make sure you are not starting your drives with the disc underneath the second arm
    • Leads to scooping the shot and less power from the poor technique

    Quick shout out to local up and coming disc golfer, Kayedence, aka KK, Micah’s daughter, and Team KK, thanks for listening to the show and we hope to see more from you as you get older and better!

    PDGA Pro DG World Championships
    < Winners: Men’s - Paul McBeth (4 consecutive wins), Women’s - Paige Pierce (3 wins)
    Sarah Hokom had a 5 stroke lead going into round 5, but was in a car accident that made her miss the first two holes, costing her 8 strokes. She still came in 2nd, only losing to Paige by 1 stroke.

    The sportsmanship of Paige Pierce really gave me, Nick, much more respect for Paige, as she gave her trophy to Sarah. She stated that Sarah should have won, while trying to hold back the tears, also stating that the win was “bitter-sweet”.
    Shoutout to those who aced – Drew Gibson, Jennifer Allen, Jay Yeti Reading, someone else, can’t remember the name
    Also to Alan Beaver who has an albatross (double eagle) on hole 6, par 5, during his 5th round.
    Scott Stokely foot fault controversy?

    Hello and welcome to the Disc Golf Show Episode 23

    Today is Saturday, May 2nd. Yes, this show is a week early, but for a good reason. Nick’s wife is about to give birth any day, so we thought it would be good to record a week before the due date instead of pushing our luck and not being able to record at all.

    And our guest host is our friend, and a brand new disc golfer, Ron Rose! We think it is going to be great to have a point of view from someone who is just coming into learning about the sport.

    They say its great for backhand, forearm, overhand shots and also rollers
    Latitude 64 – Maul (Fairway Driver) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/latitude-64o-maul
    Similar to the River in speed and glide but, is understable.
    made more for the beginner player prob due to the low fade rating
    Latitude 64 – Spark (Fairway Driver) http://www.pdga.com/announcements/latitude-64o-sparks-your-game
    David Feldberg’s new signature disc
    Stable, and dependable fade… probably means quite a bit of fade and its probably more overstable then stable for an underdeveloped arm

    Heath from Decatur Disc Golf Club in Decatur, TX brought a couple things to our attention.
    They got their first disc golf course in October and it has been well received. They started their disc golf club shortly after. Because of interest from school kids, one of the club members (also a high school math teacher) started a youth club for high schools around the area and had over 50 kids sign up in the first week!
    Recently, a company contacted the school about a STEM project (science, technology, engineering and math). William suggested they design and install an 18 hole course on campus!

    Techniques (Justin)
    Improve your Approach Shots: http://morleyfield.com/snapper-pierson/tips-from-the-pro/
    Set up a target or marker and throw hyser, flat, and turnover shots at it from a progressively longer distance starting at about 50 feet. You’ll soon discover that your most accurate shots involve more snap and less arm motion. Now you are ready to put a target on the upslope or downslope of a hill and repeat the drill above. You’ll soon discover that a hyser shot or turnover landing on a downhill slope often stand up and roll away. Again, paying attention to what the disc does will teach you what to expect in different situations. This greater knowledge and familiarity with what the disc will do will give you greater confidence in your shot selections. This should lead to better approach shots in the long run.
    I keep my eyes on the basket for the entire shot if it is a relatively close approach shot, because the approach is usually all about accuracy.
