Advice:For all the younger players, watch videos of the better/older players and listen to what they have to say. I am self-taught and a lot of stuff I do isn't necessarily the right thing to do. Younger players are fortunate to have the Internet to help with their game. Most of all you should have fun playing. If you are not having fun try to remember why you started playing the game. I play because I love it and just love watching the disc fly. I met my wife in 1976 while playing catch with a friend of mine in the park. I'm sure I will be playing disc golf until I die!
Goals:Another world and putting title and in 3 years when I turn 70 I hope/plan to have 5 world titles in 5 different age divisions. If I could play great and have a little luck I could win another age division this coming year. Thinking about going for 55+ You got to have goals.
Additional Comments:Don't rush your shots. Take your time setting up for putts and if you aren't felling that putt don't take it. 4's suck, but 5's or 6 really sucks. Just thankful to be on a team of the greatest disc golf company in the world.
