Whether you’re learning the basics of disc golf, or you’re an experienced looking to improve your game, having a consistent practice routine is a good place to start. Team Innova’s Avery Jenkins shares the practice routines for driving, approaches, and putting that helped make him the 2009 Open World Champion.
“Practice doesn’t make perfect. Practice makes permanent.”
Your tee shot sets you up for scoring success on every hole. Avery covers warm up, disc selection, set repetition, practicing weaker throws, and meaningful steps you can take to improve your drives.
“Drive for show. Putt for dough.” It’s a phrase you’ll hear repeatedly in disc golf. But, don’t overlook the importance of a consistent approach game. A strong approach shot (or upshot) leads to easier putts which builds confidence and improves your scores.
Putting is the easiest way to lower your scores in disc golf. The two C’s, confidence and consistency, are core to an effective putting game. Establish a routine that fits your game and stick to it.
Practice does happen on the course. But, a consistent practice routine off the course is an effective and efficient way to improving your game. Learn these methods and you’ll be more likely to score like a champion on the course.
