Welcome.
I hear ya on looking at DG forums. I look at DIY HiFi forums, motorcycles, etc etc. , I also never thought to look at DG forums until last Fall. I've been playing since 2000 . Amazing how much I've learned since reading the forums and looking at Videos on Youtube !

Good luck, hope you continue to enjoy the game. Lots to learn , lots of good info here.

So what's hot in loudspeaker elements these days?
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.

What's happenin', ya'll? I'm new, not to the earth but to this board. I love this forum. It's probably the best disc golf board, right? I came in to say disc golf rules and I see big things on the horizon. Also...golf is not a par 3 game and disc golf shouldn't be either. In golf, the challenge lies in strategically linking shots together to get a chance to putt for birdie. We are playing golf, aren't we?
Anyways, let's build better courses!

Well said and welcome.

Been lurking for a while, been disc golfer for way longer. Great site with much less adolescent flair than some others. Well done admins.

Hey Guys and Gals,

New player here from Wellington, New Zealand. Rented a disc while down in Queenstown in February, and been playing at least twice weekly ever since.

Currently a RHBH player, but can't seem to get past 70m...I'm obviously strong-arming and have been wading through the various posts on improving form. Gave FH a shot yesterday and it feels more natural, so looking at getting a more 'FH friendly' disc (my XL and Stalker don't feel too nice). Had a play with an Innova Orc, and looking to pick one up soon.

Currently throwing Discraft (local player here sells them)
Z Stalker
ESP XL
Soft Challenger

Looking forward to improving, and the content in this forum looks invaluable so far.

Well I suck at intros so whatever:
Howdy, my name is Sawyer and I've been playing Disc golf for almost a year now; I'm not all that great at it but I'm slowly getting there, I think. I mainly throw Innova discs, but have a couple Discraft ones and looking at adding a Nuke-SS soon. I'm a student at Clemson University so I have a few courses near me, and back home in Aiken there's a decent 9 hole course.
