Top Ten Tips for Disc Golf Beginners
Tip #7 Drive Low
     Many beginners tend to throw too high, time and time again. Unlike throwing a baseball, throwing a disc higher does not always mean it will fly farther. The higher you throw, the quicker the Fade(hook) will begin and ultimately cut down on the distance of the flight. Throw level with the horizon and try to keep the disc six feet above the ground for most of the flight. This will keep your disc in the fairway and give it more flight distance. If throwing too high continues to be problematic despite this adjustment, point the nose of the disc down, keeping the flight more level.
