The KC Wide Open is over and gone for the year and there's a little over a month before the MAC arrives in August. I'm not sure on how many player's do this (I consider myself a very analytical person), but I immediately started listing everything that didn't go as planned that weekend.
I am seeing where I need to improve (I play Recreational, so I know improvement areas equal EVERYWHERE!), and listed some top choices to work on:
1. Developing a confident run-up to improve driving distance (I have been throwing accurately from a stand still, averaging 250-275 with a lucky max at 300ft with the right tail wind.).
2. Narrowing the available options of which discs to carry and becoming more familiar with them. I've read about 5-6 discs type total with 2-3 each in different molds or weights works great.
3. Putting practice every day.
4. Avoid the courses except as an award on the weekends to apply what you've learned.
5. Develop the proper mentality and sticking to a game plan regardless of a bad throw.
I know I'm a ways off from the level I'd like to see myself playing at. Heck, we would all love to play better. So, I'm not really asking for anything but wondering if anyone has any thoughts on field work and where they've gained the biggest improvements in their game.
I've also attached a copy of a spreadsheet my wife made for me of all the discs I own. Alot of them, I don't throw, FYI. I color coded which ones are stable, under and overstable.
Thanks to anyone who comments or even takes the time to read this.
