Disc Golf For Beginners

I. Terminology

Terminology can get overwhelming for newer players who are not familiar with the vocabulary used in describing disc types and flight patterns. I will be using many of these terms later on in the guide and it is best to have an idea of what they mean up front. All of these terms will reference flight characteristics of a right handed back hand thrower. For right handed sidearm or left handed backhand, simply reverse the directions.

Distance driver – the most common disc type, usually small in diameter with a low profile and a sharp edge, these discs are generally the most difficult to control, but also the longest flying. If these discs were golf clubs they would encompass the spectrum from 1-Wood to 5-Wood.

Fairway driver – these discs are slower and do not have the same distance potential as distance drivers. However, fairway drivers are also much easier to control and usually glide better than most distance drivers. Oddly enough, most fairway drivers were at some point in time distance drivers but technological advancement has bumped them down a notch in the greater scheme of things. If these discs were golf clubs they would encompass the spectrum from 5-Wood to 4-Iron.

Midrange disc – these discs fall somewhere between the fairway drivers and putt & approach discs in terms of distance. They are even slower and more accurate than fairway drivers. Many of these discs were at one time distance drivers and many of the most versatile discs fall into this type. It is quite likely that the majority of your throws on the course will be performed with midrange discs. If these discs were golf clubs they would encompass the spectrum from 4-Iron to 8-Iron.

Putt & approach disc – these discs are the slowest and shortest flying of the disc types. Often high profile, these discs usually have good glide and are very easy to control and finesse and are generally the most accurate discs available. If these discs were golf clubs they would encompass the spectrum from 8-Iron to Putter.

Stable – a term used to describe the flight of the disc when it flies straight at high speeds when thrown flat.

Overstable – a general term used to describe the flight of the disc when it has a tendency to pull to the left. A disc that is high speed overstable will begin to curve left immediately out of the hand and require an anhyzer angle to achieve a straight flight. A disc that is low speed overstable will end its flight with a left curve. Nearly all discs are low speed overstable.

Understable – a general term used to describe the flight of a disc when it has a tendency to turn to the right at high speeds. A disc that is high speed understable will curve to the right when thrown flat, or flatten and fly straight when thrown with a hyzer angle.

Neutral – a general term used to describe the flight of a disc when it holds a flight path consistent with the angle it is released with. For example, a disc that is thrown flat and straight and finishes straight on line would be high speed stable, low speed neutral. A disc that is thrown flat and curves to the right and finishes on a right curve would be described as high speed understable, low speed neutral.

Gyroscopic effect – the physics principle that dictates why most discs finish their flights overstable as the disc falls in the opposite direction of its spin, usually described as low speed fade. This effect is greater with larger diameter discs.

Cruise speed – the speed range that a disc is designed to fly at for a given nose angle. For example, the cruise speed of a stable driver is the minimum and maximum speeds required for a disc to fly straight when thrown flat. Exceeding the cruise speed maximum will make a disc fly understable, while dropping below the cruise speed minimum will make a disc fly overstable. Players generally have greatest success when throwing discs with cruise speeds that match the velocity they are able to consistently generate on a disc.

Low speed fade – the flight of a disc finishing with a left curve. Low speed fade between discs differs in both how much the disc fades and when in its flight it begins to fade. More overstable discs will generally fade both earlier and more than less overstable discs.

Resistance to high speed turn – the discs ability to fly straight at high speeds and not turn to the right.

Predictability – a term that describes the discs consistent ability to finish with a left curve at the end of its flight.

Guide To Buy Golf Carts and Trolleys

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Getting serious about your game of golf means that you will spend a lot of time on the course, but that does not mean that you will want to carry around thirty pounds of golf clubs and gear every time you step onto the course. If you are trying to avoid spending a few thousand dollars on a golf cart, and you want to make your game less stressful on your back and arms, then you can find golf carts and trolleys that will do all of the carrying for you.

Remote Electric Trolley

Of all of the golf carts and trolleys that are available, the remote controlled electric trolley is the easiest for you to use. With normal electric golf trolleys, you need to guide the caddy with your hand as you walk along. With a remote controlled trolley, all you need to do it point and click to move your clubs to the next hole.

The main benefit of both of these types of trolley is that you will not have to bend or stoop to move your clubs, and you will not have to carry all of that weight on your back. Electrical trolleys are especially helpful when you golf seasonally, and you simply don’t have the energy to get through that first round of golf when the weather warms up.

Push Trolley

Push golf trolleys are also very helpful when you do not want to carry the weight of your clubs on your back. These golf carts and trolleys also come with all terrain wheels, so that you will not have to worry about getting stuck when the weather turns rainy and the seventh hole turns to mud and rock, or doing any damage to the course.

Obviously, the push golf trolley is going to be less costly, so you can save a little money as long as you are willing to exert a little more effort on the course. Since you are already getting plenty of exercise by walking through the eighteen holes, you may want to weigh your options carefully before you decide.
