What’s Your Story?

April 21, 2016

We love hearing from you here at the Disc Golf Answer Man. When we started this project over 100 episodes ago, we couldn’t have imagined just how many Disc Golf Answer Fans would listen. You guys and gals are awesome! Who knew there could be so many questions to be answered about the sport we all love? It doesn’t look like there is any end to those questions in sight, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

With all of the answers we’ve given to all of those questions, we’ve put a lot of disc golf information out into the world. Hours upon hours of advice, tips, and tricks have been recorded and broadcast for the benefit of anyone who wanted to listen. Now we want to turn the tables and ask you a question…

Has it helped? Are you a better disc golfer now than when you started listening?

If you have ever wondered why we take the time week in and week out to answer all of your questions, that’s why. We want you to get better. We know that the better you are at disc golf, the more fun it becomes. We like the idea of helping you have more fun. We like it a lot. We don’t just want to #growdiscgolf, we want to #growdiscgolfers.

At the same time, we wonder… Do people only listen, or do they also act? Are we simply someone to keep them company on their commute each week? Or are they hitting the course with our ideas in their heads? When they are faced with a tough situation out on the course, do Bobby or Eric or Paige come to mind? Has our advice been put into practice?

You see, advice is worthless without action. Without action it’s just noise. It’s just 3 people who love disc golf blathering on about little plastic discs. It’s action, your action, that makes it all work. The podcast is simply the beginning. It’s the catalyst. It’s the thing that hopefully sparks change and improvement in your game. It’s meant to be the first in a string of events that results in your improvement.

It’s one thing to hear Eric give a tip on how to play better and think, “Hey, that’s a good idea, I’ll have to try that sometime”.

It’s another to hear that same tip and actually go out and put it into practice. In life, there are people who think about things and there are people who go do them. We like to think the Disc Golf Answer Fans are the doers in the world. We like to think you are all out there working on your game and getting better every week. We like to think that you are the group having the most fun on the course.

So we want to know. How has the Disc Golf Answer Man helped your disc golf game? We want to hear your story.

Let us know in the comments below or over on our Facebook group some of the things that have changed in your game because of the show. You never know. Your story could inspire someone else to become a doer too. And we know from experience, that’s one of the best feelings in the world!

  1. Disc Golf Answerman helped shape me as a disc golfer. I started playing the same week that the podcast started (just by coincidence). I found it during the third podcast and I’ve never missed an episode since. Eric, Bobby, Paige, Denise, Tim and everyone else who has segments in this show has taught me a lot. I started off as someone who could throw 150 ft and now I can throw 300 ft +. I really do owe a lot to the DGAM crew for getting me into trilogy plastic. I met so many new friends because I threw trilogy and it was their brand too. Keep up the great work guys and I promise, I will too!

  2. I have definitely used the tips I’ve learned from the #dgam crew and also from Tim at #mindbodydisc. I actually found his blog first and that is what lead me to listen to the podcast. I never would have thought to record my throws and try to critique my form before listening to the cast and it has definitely helped. Just the other day I was playing a round after work and I was doing ‘ok’ for that course but something just felt ‘off’ in my thrown and I couldn’t pinpoint it until I recorded myself on the teepad. After seeing it I was immediately able to correct my form on the very next hole. I’ve also been trying to get into a better putting practice routine and will definitely be taking Eric’s and Paige’s advice about how many practice rounds to shoot for in order to become comfortable with a new course before my first ever tournament near the end of next month. Thank you guys and keep up the great work!!

      Good to read that you were able to correct your form. I would even suggest recording your throw after 3 or 4 months just to take another look at it to see if anything else needs adjusting.

    When I first started listening I had been playing on and off for 5 years and picking up different techniques as I played. With the help of random players I have played with just playing a random course. My skill was just a bomb flick drive. Just throwing a flick /sidearm I messed up my throwing arm a bit by putting too much arm in it.
    So I turned to videos on you tube to learn backhand. Let’s just say it wasn’t working. I kept having the same issues. I was getting frustrated because. My fick would fly 350+ but my back hand would only go 250+. I hope one can understand the disapointment I had, but one day I was playing alone at the peak of the sun here in DFW TX in the summer. To avoid a heat strokes I take brakes and hydrate in the shade. I was at Veterans I think you guys might know it. Taking a brake at the bottom before 6 box at the picnic table when this person came along and we ended up finishing the round together. At the end they gave me a Trespass. So I strated researching for more discs and followed the trail to Disc Golf Answer Man.
    When I applied what DGAM talked about it took and I saw improvements in my game drasticly. Thank you guys I can’t wait to make my video and hopefully join team trilogy. Thanks for everything. Enjoy Throwing
