Dick was classically trained by the Mr. Miyagi of disc golf. You're lucky he's sharing those lessons with you!

Dick, you're the best around-- no one's gonna ever take you down.

Actually, the best around, or say within 90 minutes of KC is Eric McCabe. Dick is possibly in the top 50 in KC though.  ;D

Yeah, I know, but I had to reference that old Joe Esposito song to stick with the Karate Kid theme...

I didn't get the Karate Kid reference, I just thought you were being sarcastic.  ::)

Crazy John is the best teacher in town, hands down.

If LaRon wouldn't be so reclusive, I bet he'd give him a run for his money.

I agree...just wish his knees were in better shape. John also brings in the spiritual aspect of the game.

Um, now and then I schooled Craze  ;)  I believe that's when they really started callin' him CRAZY, cuz it drove him nuts  :o  Most of the time he was off to some Super Tour, or World Championships, while I was toiling away at a "B" Tier...  I wish his knees were better too  :'(

That would explain it then :).  LaRon's body is what prevents him from actively playing, right?

Well good news. My most recent game at SMP on friday and my drives were for the most part successful. I only shanked a few. My buddy who I play with frequently was impressed that I could throw equally far if not farther RHBH than him with the same accuracy.

Cool part is that I inspired him to want to learn RHBH  as well. 

Ultimately I still need abit more distance on my initial drive to get par consistently.  I know that will come with time and practice.

Success!

One thing that is huge for both distance and accuracy, both driving and putting is following through.  When you have a consistant and strong finish, you will notice some good results.

Exactly.  One of the fundamentals of a sound stroke is acceleration, meaning you throw through the release, not to the release.  Using this logic, your hand is actually moving faster after you release than before.  A lot of folks put 100% into the throw, but only get 60% out of the throw.  Using the acceleration concept, the numbers should be reversed; you should have 60% power going into the release, and 95-100% power coming out.

Glad to hear that things are working out for you though.  Welcome to a lifelong addiction :).

Joe, I'm glad it is working out for you.  The more you use the Towel technique to find your line as we discussed it can all help with your follow through.  More repetition helps.  And better frisbees.  I would try something like a Starfire or Pro Wraith to add maybe another 50 ft.  Beyond that time will show the best improvement.  Also play in some leagues this summer and play with better people. 

Good luck with your game and if you ever need a follow up just gimme a hollar.
