#3325525 Disc Golf

Posted by Arroz con Panther on 17 April 2015 - 10:20 PM

I am throwing right handed backhand and the dog legs right come naturally. But when I try to correct for dogleg left I get this double Heizer thing going where the disc ultimately goes right in an S move

 

Well, consider yourself lucky; most people have to work to get that.  Hell, I still suck at them most of the time.  You must be using a really understable disc.  Also, I imagine you're performing a sweeping motion with your arm instead of a "lawn mower pull" which is probably contributing to your arm being sore.

I just find it hilarious.  I've been twice (solo) in 3 days and my arm is numb.  Wish I knew all of the throws.

 

The funny part is watching how serious some of the players are.  Two guys in front of me had bags, shorts, golf shoes and umbrella.  Guy behind me playing while smoking a joint.  Some playing fast, some slow as ...   All different ages.

 

On one fairway shot I hit two tree's and still 60+ feet from hole and nailed it for par.

 

 

anyone else throw?  any pointers on dogleg lefts?

 

I play pretty religiously, but not seriously.  I'm a member of the PDGA and I've played in a few tournaments around Charlotte.  I also have one of those bags you speak of.  Doesn't mean I won't go out there with a few beers to play.  That's the beautiful thing about the sport though.  You have people out there drinking, smoking or actually practicing to get better, but everyone for the most part is pretty relaxed.

 

I never thought I would I would have a bag, but I guarantee that if you keep playing, you'll end up having one after a couple of years.  As you get better, you'll realize that you do need different discs for different shots.  There really is a difference in how the different types of discs fly.

 

By the way, most people play in tournaments because of the player's package you get.  Most of the time you get two discs, an athletic shirt and another small item.  Not too shabby for the $35 - $50 entry fee.

 

How are you throwing?  If you throw Right-hand Backhand you really shouldn't be having an issue with dogleg lefts.  Also, your arm is probably numb because your not using your body to throw.

Does anyone on here use the Untapped app? It's basically a foursquare for beer.

HBO should pull a Netflix and release the episodes all at once. That would be fugging fantastically awesome.


I don't know, man. I now have something to look forward to on Sundays.


#3319626 How does Netflix keep hitting home runs with original series?

Posted by Arroz con Panther on 12 April 2015 - 02:29 PM

But, also, I wouldn't call the netflix audience more upper scale and intelligent. It's $8 a month lol

Posted by Arroz con Panther on 12 April 2015 - 02:28 PM

It's a combination of several things.

1. No commercials
2. They don't have to adhere to the censor police
3. They can show boobies.


#3312449 Favorite (or Worst) Live Performance of Any Band?

Posted by Arroz con Panther on 05 April 2015 - 09:15 AM

If you haven't got to see Steel Panther, I beg you, please do. They're terrific.

I also go to see Styx and Def Leppard in Charlotte in June/July.

I'm heading to Nashville in October for a Foo Fighters concert.

 

I would love to see the Foo Fighters live.  There's no way their concert would not be fun as hell and full of intensity.  I'm jealous.

Eric Church is badass live!

 

Yea, I was not expecting that.  Like I said, I'm not a country music fan, but his performance was amazing.  He's the only guy on my Ipod from that genre.  Only reason I went was because I got free tickets, but it was definitely worth it.




#3311700 Favorite (or Worst) Live Performance of Any Band?

Best:
Seether
Staind
Rob Zombie
Alter Bridge

Worst:
Theory of a Deadman (worst show ever, and I like the band)
Avenged Sevenfold

 

Definitely agree on Avenged Sevenfold.  It wasn't long after I saw them that their lead singer had to get throat surgery.  He sounded awful live.

#3307698 Disney World vs Universal Theme Park vs...

Posted by Arroz con Panther on 31 March 2015 - 07:52 PM

Have done both recently.

 

 

Both the wife and I prefer Universal.

 

Pay the extra money to get to the front of every line. Its completely worth it. One ride was an hour wait in the full sun. We got on in less than 5 minutes. Was worth the money within 10 minutes of entering.

 

This is what I did when I went last year.  I think it was like an extra $75 for the pass, but I'll never go without a pass again.  The amount of rides that you get to ride throughout the day is worth it.  I think the longest we waited was 20 minutes for the new Transformer ride.  To put it in perspective, the wait for the general public was 140 minutes.




#3307686 What are your thoughts on "one and done" college basketball players?

Posted by Arroz con Panther on 31 March 2015 - 07:47 PM

Heard someone on the radio say that "one and dones" are ruining college basketball for the fans because it's, essentially, a new team every year.  It's getting harder and harder for anyone but the die hard fan to know the players, thus ruining it for the casual fan.  I have to agree.
