    Winter Disc Golf – Gear

    Most of our readers are well aware of the winter conditions we experience here in Michigan.  And you’re likely also aware that we don’t let those conditions stop us from playing disc golf year round.  We’ve discussed the discs, plastics, etc to deal with in the winter but we haven’t specifically discussed the gear we recommend, and there’s a lot of it.

    Winter Disc Golf – Advice

    With winter coming to an end and your winter disc golf opportunities dwindling, we thought you might enjoy a wider perspective of advice.  I like to think that Rodney and I are awesome at giving advice…  but then we go and throw our first drive of the round on the roof of the clubhouse and realize that you, the readers, would absolutely benefit from other people’s advice. With this in mind, we’ve spoken to many of our disc golf friends, mostly in the Midwest but a few a little further out.  Here are some of the great pieces of advice provided by your fellow disc golfers!

    Winter Disc Golf – Benefits and Goals

    I love playing disc golf in the winter.  Primarily because we rarely encounter more than one or two other groups and the course is customarily quiet.  That does bring up the question though, why are there no other disc golfers on the course? Yeah, I get it.  Cold.  Discs don’t fly as far.  Wind.  Snow.  Cold.  Well, I believe winter disc golf has many benefits that outweigh the discomfort of the cold.  Over the past couple months we’ve written about various aspects of winter disc golf, and this post will focus on benefits and managing your goals while throwing in the cold.  If you’re already a year-round disc golfer then…

    Friction Gloves Review

    I’m sure you are aware that we play year round no matter the temperature but you probably didn’t know that both Chris and I don’t wear a glove on our playing hand.  Zero degrees outside? No glove.  Super high winds? No glove.  A foot of snow or driving rain? No glove.  We have always preferred to use our bare hand.  After all it’s the only thing that comes in contact with the disc we wish to propel and we can deal with cold hands for a while.  If only there were a viable solution…

    Winter Disc Golf – Discs and Plastic

    Does this sound familiar?  You pull out your cold hard Elite Z Nuke, still beaded with drops of melted snow from the last hole.  You wipe it over with your towel only to realize that the towel is also completely saturated and your Nuke is still wet.  You decide to throw anyway but immediately regret your decision as the extra firm plastic rim rips at your fingertips.  Then you watch it hyzer out hard and drop far earlier than expected.  That’s winter disc golf for you. We recently discussed how to adjust your putting for the cold and a few ways to help mitigate the loss of distance due to…

    Winter Disc Golf – Distance

    It’s cold in Michigan, 24 degrees as I write this article.  Yet Rodney and I still find ourselves out on the course and putting in our yards.  Crazy?  Maybe.  Die hard disc golfers?  Yes. We’ve had a few readers recently ask us questions about disc golfing in the winter so we decided to write a short series of articles about disc golfing in the cold.

    Disc Golf Mirror Form Adjustment

    If you’re familiar with my philosophies, then you probably already know that I’m a huge advocate of video analysis on form. There are many ways to make this process simple, yet it still involves some effort and has one significant deficiency. Video analysis observes the past so your muscles don’t get used to the feel of form adjustments in real time. So why am I refuting a technique that I so passionately advocate?  I do so in order persuade you disc golfers to add an additional technique to your training repertoire!  A technique that’s also great if you’re stuck inside due to cold winter weather.
