Yup, sometimes hard to convince folks of that though, Jamie.

Pars are irrelevant, score is a total number

William, my experience is that playing all hole par three, all the time, works best. Cuts down on confusion when scorecard not in hand, no drunken arguements at the pin about par. I mean really, it is all relative. I would think the par on Willow would be long tee, but if you are playing shorts, it is likely that par might apply to you as well. The reasoning behind DGS using all par three is similiar. It takes out one variable. When designing or signing a course, the opinion of what constitutes a par three, four... varies greatly.

I see that the holes at Willow are Par 3's 4's and 5's. Do those apply to the long and short tees? Are all the short tees only Par 3's? Why does DiscGolfScene seem to recognize all the holes as Par 3's when entering my scores? Thanks.

@Jamie, I thought every one who threw at that clinic was Team Discraft. That is what Mark told me. My bad.

I love that place and it is very nice this time of year. You can see new lines and the course is a bit easier than deep summer. Ben at the ThrowShop is the best close spot, just off 94. There are a few other places but nowhere very close.



If you are interested we will be there tomorrow afternoon as long as the rain is not heavy.

How's this course looking these days? Anywhere really close to buy discs other than Innova?

Marty Peters is in the area if you want to work on D. But others have said it: if you can already hit 400, you'd be better off overall to work on control and shot shaping.

Chris, first off if your throwing 400 ft your doing pretty damn good. 90% of the distance tutorials aren't helping unless your some freak of nature newbie with a canon. However I made some for Discraft that will be up very soon with some of their team members like Jamie Mosier and it focuses on distance throwing. There are older versions of the Discraft distance tuts online. Avery Jenkins had a good series out as well if you search his name in Youtube I'm sure you'll find them. Secondly, lik ... more

Nate... yes I know... but I guess I am looking for someone in the area to hit a field with and they can teach me a few things on how to get beyond 400'... I have watched the tutorials a billion times and I have been at the distance for forever and I feel right now I am tweaking and tweaking and I think I am not really getting anywhere... SO my hope is to find someone in the area who can help a little bit in real life...lol... Even if I just hangout and watch them play...

Chris - you don't need a big arm for willow. Discraft has some great tutorials for distance on YouTube.

Chris Pasik    October 14, 2012 at 11:04pm

I live in the area and was wondering if there are any big arms around that could help me with some tips for distance... I currently am averaging 380' with every now and then a 400'-420' shot, but can't get past this. So if anyone is willing to help hit me up!
