Disc Golf Myths

Postby Mike C » Mon Aug 06, 2012 5:33 am

Working on putting together a video of dg myths and explaining why they aren't true. Wanted to make a list of ten things and I'm at eight so far. Any ideas?

DG Myths
1. Only os discs for fh
2. Putters and mids aren't for driving, especially fh
3. Spin makes discs flip
4. Only os discs for hyzers and us for anhyzers
5. Always throw an os disc if its windy
6. Only us discs bh roller os for fh roll
7. Throw every disc flat
8. Harder you throw further you throw
9.
10.

You need to aim at the basket.
Throw your driver on every tee shot.

Something along the lines of "only drivers are for distance", most people don't understand the distance potential of putters/mids.

lighter discs are more understable.

Practicing distance improves your score the fastest.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Yeah, weight doesn't affect stability nearly as much as most people think.

I would say: You can't get good distance from a standstill.
Lids aren't good golf discs.
Some discs of various sizes, weight, plastic and mold.

If X hadn't happened the shot would have went right into the basket.

Buying a 11x CE Teebird will improve your game.

Repeating the same throwing errors will eventually increase your luckiness.

I don't need to putt out because it's a casual round and I couldn't possibly miss that putt.
