Today’s post dives into some sage words from The Champ, Ken Climo.
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.

So it’s time for us to run our first contest in awhile… Thanks to our friends at Paragon Disc Golf, you have a chance to win some FREE SWAG in your size when you tag yourself in one of the pictures in the TALKdg Contest Album. And you too will be saying, “That was easy!!!” – Just like the Paragon Slo-Mo Guy…
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.
One of the things that got me hooked on disc golf when I started playing was the vast selection of videos on YouTube to watch. I bought a few discs, started to throw during the day and watch videos of people throwing all evening. I would watch for form, styles, etc. I knew I was bit by the bug.
The folks at Disc Golf Monthly have consistently put together very entertaining videos. I’ve loved seeing other courses and many different styles of play. In March, and now again in April, they have showcased some pro player clinics put on at these big tournaments.
This month they showcase another Pro Player Clinic with Nikko Locastro, Sarah Hokom, David Feldberg, and Garrett Gurthie.
Hello everyone. Happy April Fools day.
I’m thinking the new Innova South Paw discs are going to be a game changer. Also, I’m glad Innova is getting rid of the TeeBird. I hate it when discs go straight.
I’m logging in here to let you all know that I posted a new blog entry. I was able to get some video footage of my drive yesterday, so I posted it up on YouTube and then briefly broke it down on my blog. I ended up focusing on a tighter four-finger power grip and the positioning of my non-throwing arm.
Visit 400bound.blogspot.com to check it out. Thanks for reading.
Hi, folks. John “Cinque” Synco here. I’m a new contributer to TalkDG. I’ve started a blog over at www.400bound.blogspot.com that will focus on my journey to reach the 400ft mark with my drives. I will be forced to break three-year-old habits in my form in order to achieve my goal. I’m also writing about other topics too, so check it out if you have the time.
The newest post is about a video I discovered on YouTube that maps out a way to receive free discs. Will I sell my soul for free plastic? Come find out.
