I played a short practice round of disc golf with a friend at the local nine basket course. He was warming up before the tournament at the other eighteen basket course by the river.
I managed to make several birdies in our practice session but we were not keeping score. I was playing with three discs and two of them were very new to me. I think using a limited number in a practice round is a good way to learn new discs.
The new Crave disc is great. I think it might be flying straighter than the one I lost but I have not hit a bunch of trees with it yet.
My friends were all trying to get me to sign up for the tournament. I was tempted but my arm has been doing a lot of throwing recently from playing in the league and I'd be too tempted to overdo it.
A typical grey sky looking day with our new practice basket in view:
My son gave me a copy of the Perfect Putt 360 app so I played with that this evening. The side of the yard is just right for setting up a practice area for putting with this application.
I'm usually pretty good at making putts under twenty feet. At twenty five and thirty feet I have a lot of trouble. Maybe at that distance I might be better off switching my putting form or putting in more practice.
It is a lot of fun to practice in my yard and I know it is already improving my confidence in shorter range putts. The application gives good feedback on how you are doing.
