    Disc Golf Straddle Putting Technique

    Most disc golfers categorize their putting style as spin putting or push putting.  Sometimes a player has a slight mix of styles and I’ve often described my putting style as a straddle spush putt.  I’ve been thinking a lot lately and I believe the straddle putt stands alone as a putting style.  Here’s my implementation of straddle putting.

    Disc Golf Stall Shot

    What is a disc golf stall shot?  I’m always surprised by the number of times I’m asked that question when I describe my putt and approach game, but it seems that either the shot or the term is not as common as I had assumed.  A stall shot is purposely throwing nose up so that your disc either rises drastically or catches enough air that it stalls early in in the flight path.  A stall shot is sometimes referred to as an air bounce because the putter appears to bounce off the air, a bounce putt, a loft shot, rise shot, or generically a nose-up shot. Sometimes this is called…

So, is it okay to put with your index finger on the rim of your disc golf putter? Please…

    Push Putting Technique

    When I first started playing disc golf, I was terrible at putting.  I used the typical wristy motion that almost all beginners attempt.  I would miss way right of the basket, or way left if I forgot the natural path of the disc, or really long if I threw with decent enough form to create glide.  As a result, my first several rounds involved laying up from 20′ and out.  I was so scared to miss badly that I just went for a toss near the basket. Then, I came across a video of a great clinic put on by Dave Feldberg.   Please follow and like us:
