Hi I am Tom Schot, CEO of World Disc Sports, and a member of Disc Golf Hall of Fame. I am here to teach you how to play disc golf, and one of the things we are going to work on right now is when you walk up to the hole, you are going to size it up, and you are going to figure it, how you are going to approach this hole.
As I walk up to the tee, and I am going to approach this hole, and I know I can't reach at one. I don't have enough power to get there. I want my drive to land in a position where it's going to give me the easiest shot, going in for my approach shot. I don't want to get a bogie. I know this is a par three. I want to get up there in two or I hit my putt is easy to make. I don't want to leave myself with a 40-foot putt. I want to make sure I am within 10 or 15 feet of that basket. So when I come up to tee, I am going to throw my drive, that's going to give me the best position that I can go in and get that par.
We are talking about basic, basic throwing styles. Especially to start with how you are going to throw the disc off the tee? This is your drive. 85%-90% of the people throw backhand, so if you are left-handed; I am right-handed. So if you are left-handed, you are going to do the opposite of everything I do, okay?
Now, you hold the disc, all four fingers on the bottom of the disc, thumb on top. You grip it tight. You don't have your finger out there on the edge. You have got everything underneath, okay? Now, when you throw, just think of the disc as being on the end of a whip. So the longer the whip, when it comes out at the end, the faster that whip is going to be moving. So if I stand here and I just throw like this, coming out, the axis is on my shoulder. So that's the length of this whip, but if I turn my body, and I am throwing from way back here, I am putting the axis in the center of my body and I am getting about 12-15 more inches a whip. So that disc is going to come out a lot faster. So when on my drives, I am coming up, I am way back here, I am reaching back as far as I can and I am pulling this disc through and out. Okay! That's the backhand.
Now under two-finger throw. You are going to be throwing -- you are going to come -- I am going to standing right in to you now okay. I am driving, that's my tee way down there. My two fingers are underneath, I am gripping it tight. I am coming in here; I can't reach as far back as I can with the backhand. But I have much more snap in my finger here and I have more arm speed coming through than with the backhand. So I can get a relatively a long distance shot also, with a two-finger.
Another drive that you guys do if you are in a shot position, you can do what they call tomahawk throw. And that's again, the two-finger position on the disc. The two fingers are under there, your thumb is on the top, and you come over and you throw the disc so it comes upside down. You release it like this. It comes upside down. It flattens out and it comes down and dies.
I use this shot all of the time. I was in Augusta Georgia at the Hall of Fame Tournament; the course was loaded with trees. So there was no way I am going to get through these trees with a tomahawk I mean with a backhand or a two-finger. I have got to go with a tomahawk throw, where I know, I got a little tee angles and little tee in positions. So I got to get through and that's much easier to do with this controllable tomahawk. You don't have the extreme distance as you have with a backhand or the two-finger. But you have a lot of control with a tomahawk. It's almost like throwing a baseball.
Now if you want to throw the disc, and you got to go around a big tree, you are going to pull what they call Hyzer on it. So instead of throwing the disc flat, you are going to turn it up a little bit, so the nose of the disc is kind of on a angle here. That disc is going to go out and it's going to cut to the right. That's called Hyzer. If it goes out and you want to throw around the tree, from the right to left, that is the Anhyzer. So that's a big word in disc golf, is Hyzer shots. Now that I have shown you how to do a couple of basic throws. I am going to teach you how to play smart.
