Many of today’s top executives are doing something odd in the morning. They are getting dressed in the same clothes every single day. I don’t mean they are wearing literally the same thing, without washing. I mean that they own 5 identical outfits and that’s what they wear every day.

Just the Tip – Give Yourself 10

At my home course, we have leagues on Wednesdays. I’m very happy to have Wednesdays off. This allows me to get there before they start and get some practice in. Being that it’s a very busy course, it also allows me to see group after group show up to get in a round after work. … Read more

Confidence is a Result

I’ve written a lot about the importance of having confidence.  I wrote a post about the “confidence circle” last week.  I’ve talked about it on my “Mind Over Plastic” segments on the Disc Golf Answer Man podcast.  I’ve made motivational memes on Intagram, Facebook, and Twitter directly referencing confidence.  What I’ve never done, though, is … Read more

Road to the GBO – Taking the Field Out of Field Work

Field Work

When interviewers ask Simon Lizotte how he learned to throw as far as he does, his answer is daily field work.  When Paul McBeth makes a video on how he practices, he shows you his field work.  When people write in to the Disc Golf Answer Man podcast and ask how to get better, you … Read more

Just the Tip – Pick a Target

In a previous tip, we talked about seeing the line.  Actually looking, in your mind’s eye, for the flight line you want your disc to take.  While that works well, there’s an additional aiming aid that, when combined with seeing your line, will have you shooting lights out in tight quarters before you know it. … Read more

Road to the GBO – Disc Golf Deadline

3 months straight.  That’s how long I’ve been training daily in an effort to ready myself for the 2015 Glass Blown Open.  I’m slated to arrive in Emporia on April 26, which means I’ve got 6 weeks left to prepare. It’s been 12 weeks of working out, meditating, practicing putting, studying up on the mental … Read more

Road to the 2015 GBO – Focus

  The second putt always goes in. You know what I’m talking about.  You miss that first putt, pick up another putter and just fire it at the basket.  That second putt always goes in.  The same thing happens with lots of other shots.  You’re standing in the woods and you hit the first available … Read more

Road to the 2015 GBO – Disc Golf Habits

76 Days to Go. Human beings are creatures of habit.  The things that we’ve always done tend to be the things that we continue to do.  We eat the same meals, usually at the same times.  We get up the same time each day and lay our heads on our pillows at the same time … Read more
