I was given the opportunity to caddy for Team Innova and Team SDG member, Uriyah Kelley, on Saturday when he competed in the Don’t Poke the Bear B-Tier at Woodland Valley. It was pretty cool because I’ve never caddied before, and I hadn’t gotten to see Uriyah throw in person yet. It was definitely an eye opening experience and it’s lit a little fire in me. I’m going to make sure I practice more so I don’t lose to him by too much when we play in the future.
Today I’m going to be looking at some of the discs that aren’t as popular. Here’s 6 discs out there that I think people should be trying, and I’ll tell you why you should give them a shot. I love to talk with people about their golf game when they get into the shop, but these are some disc recommendations that I think help people when the popular discs aren’t working for them.
I wanted to throw 500 feet like Paul, Paige, Jennifer Allen, Ricky, and all those other big arms. But I’ve changed my mind in the past few years. If you’re throwing 350+ feet you likely don’t need more distance. How did I arrive at my conclusion? I asked myself some questions about the distance and how much it really affects my overall score.
My disc golf career wouldn’t be where it is today without the love and support from my dad, Michael. When I got home from playing my first round of disc golf my dad drove me to the sporting goods store to buy a 3 pack of starter discs. We threw that Aviar, Shark, Leopard pack in the backyard after supper and then we returned to the shop so he could buy a set of his own. That was 10 years ago and we’re still best cardmates. He still uses his starter set 150g DX Aviar too, every hole.
