Disc Golf VLogs

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 lost 33% of your discs! I hear @cipher has some extras… ;-)

I may have a bit of a compulsive disc buying problem... :blink: ... :-D

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.

    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
    • You know what I'm talking about.  That hole that eats your lunch every time you face it.  It may not even be a tough hole, but for some reason you can't seem to score well.   Mine is the opening hole on the Gold Course at Martin County Golf and Country Club.  It's a long par 5 dogleg left.  There's water halfway down, huge greenside bunkers, and several well-placed trees to punish any attempt at cutting the corner off the tee.  The rough slopes away steeply the whole way down the right side, often kicking your ball into the woods.  A bogey is my standard score.  I feel like I'm automatically going to be down a stroke right out of the gate. I've been playing that course since I was 12.  I'm 42 now.  Today, I reached the green in two for the first time in my life, then made birdie.  I couldn't believe it! Below are some short vids of me on my way to finally conquering this beast.  I'd love to hear about your trials with your nemesis hole.   And then the 3-wood, high draw to the green:
