Any plastic throwers out there? I posted a few pics of my swirly maggards brush along with a couple of swirly discs to our local club page but only the crickets responded....
It IS a lot of fun; it's also a lot harder than it looks. Throwing the discs is very different than throwing frisbees.I just watched a documentary called The Invisible String. Some cool history.
Ive never played, no courses where I live, but it looks like fun.
Right on brother! Been playing for 16 years and still have a lot to learn.It IS a lot of fun; it's also a lot harder than it looks.
Not just that, but different geometries. Some are intended (if you throw them correctly) to break right, others to break left, others to go straight..some are meant for distance (drivers) others for accuracy (putters.)Okay, back when dinosaurs walked the Earth, my brother and I would take our frisbees to the greenbelt, select a distant tree, choose a "par" and go for it, hitting the trunk was a sunk putt.
I gather these days the "discs" are mostly rings of varying size, stiffness, and weight?
My good friend is a professional disc golfer and has traveled the world playing tournaments including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Germany, Japan and several other countries.Just had a Google of Disc Golf in Australia. It seems to be a growing sport with Championships as well. The nearest course to me is about 2 and 1/2 hours away. I might approach either the Golf Course here or the Local Council and see if that think it might be feasible to look at adapting part of the Golf Course or one of the local parks into a Disc Golf venue.
