I meant touring pros, so you've got me on that one. But who? It's a city of Masters and has-beens IMO. I never see anyone practicing. I've never been shared a training regiment by anyone. Its just round after round. I wonder if anyone really wants to get better around these parts --- or just sit back and have "fun" on par 54 courses.

i remember seeing Arturo practicing putting, up shots and drives at Rosie.  Having all summer off as a teacher, i was out there at all hours and i would run across him practicing and i would try to learn whatever i could  from watching his techniques.

Loomis, Yoga, hell yeah. I use it every time I put. Rooting down and reaching out in all directions. And as Vince mentioned: breathe! Yes, it is great.

Technique and practice. Technique and developing a personal routine is huge. I am not great at disc golf, but far from crappy, and I have found that finding what works and sticking with it is how I improve. All of the feedback here has some truth, especially what Palmer said  :)
I just go out and try new shots. If they work, I start to work on them. The same with putting. I have two putting styles I switch between depending on the conditions and the shot. But most importantly, I always follow my routine.

The number one thing is attitude, previously mentioned as confidence. Why do you think Pros tell Ams to play up? To learn the winning attitude. I stay in shape and work had at everything I do because my attitude informs my performance. I have beat too many players because I crushed their head game with my winning attitude.

While I am sitting here at work jealous, wishing I could be there...
Where'd my disc go?

Just head down after work. The player's party is always fun.

The player's party was the biggest and best I've ever seen for a tournament, and it was the best part of the weekend for me. I hope you made it down.

I agree with Loomis, the block party was a blast and the highlight for me.  I think in the future if I can't play in the tournament, I will come down for the player's party.

KC has no pros. No one practices here. I told LaRon that just the other day. No one has a practice regiment.

Speaking of LaRon, he has stepped up and has been out at Rosedale every Monday night at 5 to work with anyone willing to put in the time to practice. Come out if you can but be ready to work. There is a regiment he will teach you.

He is a great coach/mentor - in fact he was Eric McCabes. So far I have been shocked that more people have not come out to take advantage of this opportunity.
