This episode is brought to you by the Dynamic Discs Witness. The Witness is a great fairway driver for players with lower arm speed. An understable flight path and tremendous glide make the Witness an excellent choice for players looking to gain distance without sacrificing accuracy. Bigger arms can use the Witness for controlled anhyzers, hyzerflips, and rollers.

We talk about tee pads and whether the shape and length of a tee pad can affect your shots. Check out DynamicCourseDesign.com for more information on Eric McCabe’s venture into course design.

Miles Seaborn has a segment on 5 discs every disc golfer should never be without.

Tim from Mind Body Disc explains why you should not worry about others but, to play your game.

    Immediately after a thrown disc leaves your hand, it loses velocity. After all, discs have no means of propulsion (like an airplane). Interestingly, flying discs tend to maintain their rotation (i.e., spin rate) during flight. Because of this, a certain point in flight, the velocity curve and rotation curve will cross and the disc will lose its gyroscopic stability and begin to fade. The ratio of spin to velocity is called the advance ratio.

    Overstable discs maintain stability, but in another way. They are much more resistant to rolling (i.e., flipping) than a throw-and-catch type disc. If a player can’t throw an overstable disc with significant velocity, he or she can’t take advantage of this resistance to flipping. The thrown disc loses velocity quickly, and it fades like crazy.
