As promised, here is the second half of “Things You Oughta Know.” In this post, I’m going to discuss helpful websites and tutorial videos. My hope is that if you have any questions that I cannot answer, you can still find the answer elsewhere.
With that said, let’s do this thing!
When I began disc golfing, I transitioned from years of Ultimate Frisbee, in which I threw mainly forehand passes. So when I started disc golf, I was still in the habit of forehand throws. But I sucked. And no matter how much I practiced, my forehand never got better. It was suggested to me that I tried backhand throws (which is the most common throw among discers). I did, but I didn’t do well. I was referred to a few instructional videos that REALLY taught me a lot.
Discmania Golf Discs puts out a bunch of instructional videos and tip videos that are seriously useful! Even now, I still go back and watch them for pick-me-ups.
This video if my favorite and most viewed. I learn something new from it every time I watch it.
All of the videos on their channel are really great, and you should definitely check them out!!!
It may be obvious by now from all of my links to it in previous posts, but I friggin’ LOVE DiscGolfCenter.com. They give you every brand, every disc, and every detail. You like a certain brand? Well, they give you every statistic you need to know what disc is best for you. They also sell accessories. I have bought all of my discs from here. LOVE IT.
For you lady discers out there, join DOLLS! Disc on! Ladies League.
Their mission is to get more females involved in the great sport. You can connect with other girls who love the sport just like you. Makes you feel included and a little more confident in your game (especially if you’re used to throwing with a guys).
Here, they sell perfectly fine discs that have a blemish in the stamp or was misprinted. The discs are all brand new and absolutely nothing is wrong with the manufacturing except the stamp on top. They sell these discs super cheap.
You can get a 10 pack for $50. They’ll send you 10 miscellaneous discs all of similar plastic type. Then you get to test a bunch of different types of discs. And if you don’t like some of them, you can resell them online. It’s a win-win-win situation. You get nice discs for cheap, get to try a bunch of different types of discs, and can potentially make money off of them. How can you go wrong?!
I really hope that this has been useful!
Can’t wait to see you again soon!
