Its hot as blazes out and you are on your 2nd round of disc golf for the day. You know the importance of drinking lots of water on hot days. Good thing you brought plenty of bottled water to stay hydrated! What you may really be doing is exposing yourself to BPA’s and other plastic compounds that do everything from enlarging prostates to causing cancer in you and your children! Got man boobs?
The Greencastle Parks and Recreation Department will sponsor “Putt for Prizes,” a disc golf event for all ages and skill levels, on Saturday, March 22 at Big Walnut Sports Park.
Putt for Prizes is not a tournament, and not a lesson but a fun event for all to come out and see what disc golf is all about.
Not everyone will agree, but if you want to lower your scores, the approach shots are the most important shots in disc golf. The best way to take strokes off off of your game, is to improve your putting and approach shots. As in ball golf, they don’t get the focus that the drive does, everyone loves to throw a drive 500 feet, and 50 foot putts are always exciting. If you can throw a drive 250 feet, and then park your approach under the basket, for a drop in putt, it a sure thing that you will have better scores.
The goal of most disc golfers is to get better. To get better, you need to get lower scores. One of the ways to improve your playing, and lower your scores, is to get in better shape. Getting stronger and more physically fit will help you in disc golf, as well as many other areas in your life. The way to get stronger is to stress your muscles by making them do work.. I have developed a training program that will make you stronger and more fit. This will allow you to throw farther and to have fewer injuries. You don’t need to ever have an injury from playing disc golf.
The most common ways to lose your disc disc golf discs is.
1. To throw them into the woods or long grass and not be able to locate them.
2. To play in winter and lose them under the snow.
3. To throw them into water and they sink.
