Low Percentage Shot Round

Postby Jesse B 707 » Fri May 15, 2009 1:22 pm

I tried this the other day and it was fairly entertaining.
Just go out to play a round and for every drive try to do the opposite of what you usually would, easy BH hyzer hole? throw a FH anny or cut roller, straight putter drive? throw a bullet thumber or spike FH, easy overhand hole? make it there with a roller. etc. as long as you are taking lines/shots on holes that you usually would never do, you are doing it right, who knows? maybe you will find that a line you never thought of may be the best for you, but at very least you will be brushing up on/learning new shots that can really pay off in the right situation.
try it, it's fun

I love taking this approach. I only have one course where I live, so I will take insane shots to keep it interesting. Sometimes it works out, sometimes I get to pull my disc from 15 ft up a tree. I still average around 2-4 over par (12 hole course)and i've been playing since the beginning of April.

I think this is a great idea. I don't actually play rounds much like this, but I do play a lot of new courses so most of the time I'm throwing new shots every few rounds. Sorta same thing but different.
