I played a nine basket disc golf round this morning with my son. I won by a couple of points.
We also played an eighteen basket disc golf round in the evening which I lost by a few points. I was having some issues with my putting again. I was not missing by much but the basket was not cooperating right, lol.
I found a much better way of getting a bit more power and control on my drives. I've been having a lot of issues getting distracted by things that are behind me when I throw backhand. On a power drive I turn my head and shoulders all the way around and if anything is right behind me that is unexpected my eyes can quickly lock onto the area and my throw gets off the line I'm aiming at. This has resulted in a lot of bad misses.
I've joked around about putting my disc golf bag right behind the tee with a note on it saying, "WARNING - To anyone caught within twenty feet of this bag, don't even think of standing here !!!@#" At risk of being "that guy" on the disc golf course that everyone learns to avoid, lol.
Anyhow.. My son suggested that I look at my disc on the reach back and this has worked wonders. I seem to be getting a lot more power plus it gives my eyes something to lock onto.
The only issue is is seems to be causing my release to go a bit higher instead of coming out level. I think I can correct for this once I get a bit more practice doing my throws this way.

There was a large bird sitting on the log in the river but you really can't see it very well in the photo. The air was a bit hazy, I think because of the recent fires to the South.
