Hi guys. I'm new here. Been playing disc golf for 5 months (4 before winter, 1 since. I refuse to count the 4 months of sitting at home wishing it weren't snowing!) I have way too many discs for my skill level and I plan on buying more. Good to meet you all.

I've posted on the video critique, I'd appreciate everyone taking a few jabs at me!

Hello all,

I’m new to the board, though have been lurking for about 3 weeks. I have been playing disc golf for about 2 years and really enjoy the sport. I am in California and play on a variety of courses. I was forehand dominant till about 3 weeks ago and decided to throw backhand. Oooh my feels like im starting over at times :)

I just wanted to join up and thank you all for the great articles, disc reviews and advice.

I'm new to the board, you may call me Scrambles. I play disc golf in the state of Wisconsin, and am working to improve my game. I'm a DGCR refugee, known as Robertbonson in the badlands.

Hey fellas new guy here. I have been reading and reading all of the crazy brain boggling posts about the analytical side of disc golf. LOVING IT!

I live in Northern California (530). I have been playing disc golf for about 10 years. Only 5years total if you count the LAME fact that I can't play 6 months out of the year due to blistering cold and tons of freaking snow.

I first learned about disc golf from a local school teacher who had built 4 12 hole courses back in the 80s. These were objective courses you know make it through the old car tire hanging on a low branch on that BIG pine tree down the fairway. What do you mean? What fairway? These are the desperate cries of new comers on our courses you want me to put what where? These courses were mainly designed for the big floater discs not a lot of long holes.

The courses were destroyed when the land owners logged the land so about 4 years ago a buddy and I made a couple more modern courses with more length still technical and a lot of fun. After playing more and more basket courses out of town I realize that the courses that I have learned to play on are WAY too generous in terms of the size of the target.

Examples are shoot through the two big trees (6 feet apart) or hit that tree, or that 4 foot tall stump, or through any of the 6 windows on the old rusted up model T ford. You get the picture.

So after playing mostly forehand and putting at crazy big targets I find myself to be a very accurate driver, pretty accurate approacher (with a driver wtf) and not so good putter due to never really being challenged.

After all of these years of playing I am absolutely fired up about disc golf all over again. You folks here at Disc golf review has inspired me to learn to throw bombing accurate backhands (yeah right) put with as many of the characteristics of a great putter that I can manage and make a course that challenges my putting.

So that's my story I would appologize for the long post but it is nothing compared to the novelistic analytical gigantic posts that I have continuously read through on this plentiful disc website. Glad to be a part of this community.

I am also a dgcr refugee, I found this site as soon as I started playing two years ago but never noticed that there were forums until a couple months ago. The amount of information found both on the main site and these forums is staggering. I appreciate all the work that blake and everyone else has put in over the years, this is by far the best DG resource on the internet.

Greetings,

My name is Kristian, originally Danish now living in Sweden. I first tried discgolf august last year in Morris Park, Fairmont WV. I was out with 3 friends and this guy Craig (maybe a member on this board?) joined us on the course and threw further than I imagined possible. Since then I've been hooked, started playing here in Sweden as soon as I got home and just recently found this board. So far the technique threads have sparked my motivation to improve immensly, so thanks to everyone contributing
I hereby commit myself to actually do the drills, rather than just trying them for a few times and expect results.

What up! Been reading the forums here off and on for a bit, decided to say hello. Been playing pretty regularly about 2 years now in Greensboro, NC and currently frequent the Barber Park, Johnson St, and Burlington courses. Would love to get down to Charlotte and check out some of the courses down there, been hearing alot of good things about them. I'm an active disc trader on discaroo.com and spend way too much money on plastic. I love rocs of various types and just picked up my first CE firebird (uh oh). Currently I'm throwing voodoos, drone/rocs, teebirds (sometimes PD's), firebirds, and wraiths (sometimes destroyers). Looking forward to contributing on the forums! Later.
