Thanks alot for all these links
Speaking of practice : I am a fanatic, i practiced in summer every day after work ( = field work, real practice, not playing rounds. 20 min putting practice, 50 drives to not overdo it, then maybe play 9 holes for fun, repeat ). At this time of the year it is allready dark when i get off work, so i only have weekends and days i take off just so i can get out on the field. If i dont throw for a week, i get nervous. I usualy practice till it gets dark. We have a 500 feet straight flat field for driving practice and 5 baskets around it for putting practice.
I have seen enormous improvement in this year ( i started a year ago ), i hope i can keep it up
I dont have a pdga license, but judging from people that i played with in tournaments i would say that i improved from a 700 to a 930 - 950 rating this year. Drives improved from 200 to 430 feet ( max D. "golf drives" are around 350-400 feet ). Putting confidence zone increased from non existant to 15-18 feet.
I remember that the comet got on my nerve and yes, i tried to throw it hard without it flipping. I managed to do so with crazy crazy hyzers. I will do so some more
Why i made this thread : I realised that there is always some degree of playing with the release angle involved. At first i didnt want to accept that and tried discs left and right that i can release with my natural hyzer angle ( coming from ultimate, i threw everything hyzer ) and that will do the shot for me. That was ok for a little while, but as i said, the discs started turning and burnign on me. I also realised that this must be a very limited approach, and i want to improve. I also want to break 500 feet some day and i figure that improving my technique is a good way there.
I dont like my understable discs any more. I feel insecure enugh when i have to give anhyzer on a disc. The room of error betweeen it turning&burning, it landing perfectly flat as i want it and it doing the S and fading left at the end is quite small. The room of error gets even bigger when you throw hyzer and make the disc flip and THEN try to hit the perfect angle for these 3 possibilities. ( On a sidenote, i dont have much problems when the disc shouldnt land flat. I can throw hyzers and rollers that keep their line till they land. It is realy mostly about the touch s-shot or anhyzer shot where the disc should flatten out in the air and land flat at the end ).
