NorCal SoCal Match Play Invitational – Nate Doss and Drew Gibson vs Gabe Cota and Justin Bruner
So Tiger Tank did a live show down in St. Louis… it it was captured via an I-Phone from the audience. Remember if you are a discgolfer and you have a band – we’d love to feature you here on TALKdg.
So take a listen to Paragon Disc Golf‘s, Miles Parkhill and the rest of the band, Tiger Tank.
You might recognize the “sound” of Tiger Tank as it is made up of past members of PARK.
Tiger Tank is based out of Springfield, IL – so it wasn’t much of a trek to get down to The Gramophone down in St. Louis. We are hoping a couple of more live shows are planned… Take a listen:
Tiger Tank live @ The Gramophone in St. Louis – “Boom Goes the Answer”
Tiger Tank – studio version of “Boom Goes the Answer”
You can buy the EP here…
I made a set of these when I first started teaching. They are very simple and worked great.
They are simply old camera tripods I bought at thrift stores for around $10 and I screwed 5 gallon buckets to the top. They work great for teaching disc golf on a budget, but they also collapse nicely so I can fit 5 in my car.
Another $12 target was my first bamboo target. I used an old ice bucket, a round peice of wood, 2 disgaurded fence posts, and a bunch of bamboo rods to make a prototype Bamboo basket for my school.
Future bamboo baskets used the tops of 55 gallon drums and tires.

Most of the top disc golf players say that over half of the game of Disc Golf is mental. This culminates especially in competitive play, whether it’s about playing skins with your buddies or fighting for titles in the big tournaments. We felt that the subject of Mental Game had been neglected in the instructional Disc Golf videos of the past, so we definitely had to make an episode about it to our acclaimed Deep in the Game -series. So without further a due, here’s Discmania founder & CEO Jussi Meresmaa* sharing his secrets to a good head game on the course:
*(Jussi also happens to be one of the most succesful European players of all time, so he really knows what he is talking about)
And if the video wasn’t enough, want to win some sweet Deep in the Game plastic?
Just like with previous videos, we’re running a sticker spotting contest for the Mental Game episode too. Just spot the sticker, submit us the time and place where it was visible for your chance to win! Read the complete instructions from our blog and you’re good to go!
And in a little less than two weeks it’s time for the last episode of Deep in the Game: The Monster Distance. We know you’ve been waiting for this and with big arms like Jussi and Avery offering their tips, we promise it’s going to be a good one!
I got together the other day with the famous Derek Hastings to shoot a video for the release of the Obex. The Obex is, well, instead of me typing about it how about you just check out this video?
Big Jerm gave us some insight to his 2012 season.
He’s the kind of guy you want to come to your party and doing work on tour. Best of luck Jeremy.
Everyone has heard the age old saying, “Drive for show putt for dough”. I follow a more loosely interpreted version of that, ”Drive for show putt for four”. Everyone wants to become a better putter, and honestly who doesn’t? Putting is easily the most important aspect of the game, it’s also where you can shave the most strokes off of your score.
I would like to know what everyone else does to help sharping their skills. Do you just play HORSE around a practice basket, or just place yourself around a basket and just putt till your arm’s sore. I’ve found a couple games to help you practice, while making it fun. Perfect Putt is a fun way to help hone your skill. Here is the link to download the scorecard and rules for it http://wilkesdiscgolf.org/Perfect_Putt_360.pdf. Twitter user @Inourdr gave me this link http://www.gardencityflyers.org/site/node/427 that uses another points based putting game. Discraft has some outstanding video’s on YouTube that are very beneficial and I recommend them to anyone, especially the putting with confidence video.
Feel free to leave a comment on other games you play while you practice, or suggestions that have helped you and could help others. The only advice that I can offer is start at a comfortable distance where your making everything then slowly work your way back till you hit a trouble spot. Once your at your trouble spot, you know where you need to really hone your practice. Don’t just go out and fire your putters into the basket, make every practice putt as if it’s for the World Championship. If your slow and methodical in practice, then once your staring down that 20′ birdie putt when it counts you will know what to do.
That’s right! Discmania is pushing DG videos to another level in terms of content and production quality. The series is called Deep in the Game and it will feature 5 in-depth episodes, each concentrating on a separate aspect of the game. The series is hosted by Disc Golf Superstar Avery Jenkins and Discmania CEO Jussi Meresmaa. See the trailer here:

Feel free to share this with your friends! Everyone should have the chance to improve their game with the help of these videos!
I’ve been posting a lot of videos lately on the blog but this one looks to take the cake.
Discmania and Avery Jenkins have released a trailer for a new series of disc golf instructional videos titled Deep in the Game.
Let me sum up my feelings this way: THIS. LOOKS. AWESOME.
