Definitions input needed from the experts.

Postby Prerube » Wed Jan 25, 2012 6:28 pm

I am working on a pamphlet to hand out to a group of physical education teachers and need a large pool of vocabulary words with definitions. Here is what I came up with. Feel free to correct, add, or give feedback. I can not copy the PDGA definitions incase I have to publish this.
Also I do not suggest quoting this message, it is very large.

THANKS

Fairway: The flight area between the tee and the basket with minimal obstacles.

Fairway Driver: a lower speed driver used to throw a controlled shot over a long range.

You may wanna check your meters to feet conversion chart again, 2 meters is around 6 feet, not 10

2m is 6'6". and just for thoroughness 10m is 32'10" according to the PDGA

Better to either consistently use meters or at least do accurate conversions.

Follow Through: The arm motion made after the disc is released.
I'd prefer "arm and body motion" frankly.

Glide: The amount of loft a disc maintains while in flight.
"How well the disc maintains its altitude while in flight."

Midrange: a disc designed for a lower power accuracy shot outside of normal putting range. These discs are between putters and fairway drivers in speed rating.

Putter: a slow speed disc designed for a short accurate throw.
I don't like either of these. Both putters and mid ranges were originally designed to be thrown at full power and for maximum distance. It would be better to advocate using them for longer shots from the start.

Speed: The rating given to a disc that describes the amount of power required for optimal performance of the disc.
That, and it's ability to hold on to that speed, i.e. how slow or fast it loses speed.

Turn: a term used to described how the disc flies in relation to the direction in which the disc is spinning.
From what I've seen, just about everyone uses turn to basically mean opposite of fade. Fade is the disc turning during low speed flight, turn is the disc in the opposite direction during high speed flight.

Turnover:
When a disc turns over from flat.
I'd also like to see high and low speed stability and nose up and nose down explained.

Thanks you, lots of great suggestions.

Sorry guys I can not use prerubed, this is for school disc golf written tests. It would be cool to teach them that phrase, but I will wait until they get hooked on disc golf then tell them to search for it :)

HSS and LSS are explained in an abbreviations section, but I think I will add it here instead of explaining it elsewhere.

You should also include hyzerflip in there. When I say hyzerflip I mean a shot that starts off with some hyzer and turns to flat, but not past. If it turns past flat it becomes a hyzerflip turnover. And actually on that turnover part, what do you guys think? I've used turnover to mean a shot where the disc turns past flat, whether it starts off flat or with some hyzer. Does a flat throw that turns over count as a turnover in your minds?

That is one reason I left turnover blank. I would think it has to have a touch of hyzer to be considered a turn over, but I am unsure.

Adding golf club approximations for the disc speed classes might be nice. Most people have a rough idea of what a 5 iron or a 3 wood is even if they don't play golf.

Thanks. Those are getting their own section. Kids will see a picture of each and have to identify the throw being used.

There is a description of what a Putter, midrange, fairway driver, and driver are, but this is for kids 8-18 so the distances will vary. I think I get what you are saying, but personally my students will not understand the golf references, but it would be good to relate it to the larger more popular counterpart.

Remember, disc golf putter != golf putter. Disc golf putter is better defined as covering the range of wedges and short irons.
