Disc Golf VLogs


Recommended Posts

I thought I would start a thread for this. Post any disc golf VLogs here.

Played the front nine at Village Park in Sussex, WI this morning.   I really like this course.  A few holes are a bit long for me but that is okay.  I will try and get the back nine tomorrow morning.

I wish I had time to play more than I have. I'm up to… yeah, nine holes this year so far. Man, that stinks.

I hope to play a course out of state in the next few days as I travel to Indiana, though.

Good round. Told you you'd improve quickly at first. Work on trusting that you can turn your back to the target, now. :)

I'll remember that for when I play my usual one round a year sometime :)

I need to get out to a field and just work on that.

Here is the back nine from that same course, Sussex Village Park.  I am really starting to move away from the Innova Monarch discs I was throwing off the tee as they tend to turn too much now.  I threw my Blue 166g MVP Fission Volt off the tee a bunch this morning.  It flies better for me and is more predictable with a nice reliable fade at the end.  I still need to work on keeping it a bit lower.  I also threw an Orange 170g Innova Star Destroyer a couple times.  It works great on the downhill shot and also on holes like #13 where it calls for a bigger hyzer type shot.  My putting was solid today and I think I was about -2 this morning.  My best round yet over the two weeks I have been playing.

I have a single drive (with a Lace, at Belmont Park near Dayton, OH earlier today). Wind was hard across from the right, which is probably why I didn't give it a bit more height to let it flex back out of the turn.

Still, I reached this "600" foot hole (supposedly) with this and an Axis on a steep hyzer for my second throw.

Erik and I played a disc golf course near where my parents live in NE Ohio. I would classify myself as a newbie player.

Had a few good throws today, especially when I tried not to throw the disc at 1000 mph.

In the end I lost one disc, but had a great time. I'll look into playing more in the future. Really a fun game.

You're getting better. Told you you get to that point pretty quickly. :)

Yeah I am having as much fun playing disc golf as I ever had playing regular golf. Found the driving putter that I have been looking for in the Innova Colt. That thing goes forever and flies so straight. Holds a hyzer line as well as on the third hole in that video.

Man you are lucky to have such a well maintained course nearby.

I used to play with a single Innova Gazelle (and I carried another disc in case I lost the Gazelle). It was good enough to have fun.

    • So I had some time at our indoor facility and Trackman.  I put the Swingspeed radar down to compare it next to Trackman to see what the difference in numbers were.  Had some interesting (and strange) results. First I hit some 7 irons to warm up.  On trackman I averaged about 85 MPH but the Swingspeed was registering around 78/79...so it was consistently lower. When I hit driver I was averaging around 102ish on Trackman but the Swingspeed radar was consistently around 110 or even higher.  I hit 105 on Trackman but topped out at 115 on Swingspeed.  I'd say that Swingspeed was averaging a little under 10 MPH higher with the driver but it was 6 MPH lower with the 7 iron. Has anyone else seen results like this?  I was left slightly confused.  When I've done fittings in the past and been on Trackman I was normally in the 100ish range so my swingspeed is definitely up a little bit but not as much as I thought it would be.

    • Day 392 - January 25, 2021 Good 45 minutes or so today. Maybe 50 balls, maybe a bit more. Added a little wrist hinge to help the club feel like it's gone back far enough sooner. Also helps the elbow fold a bit more.
    • More putting at 3' - 4' - 5', focused on not lifting head to look.  Some focus work on weight shift in backswing through downswing - teaching the body to shift and not stay on the back foot.
