Disc Golf Lessons

Disc Golf Lessons
By using masks and being careful with physical distancing, we can safely implement disc golf instruction.

Introduction to Disc Golf
If you are new to disc golf, I can teach you the fundamentals from the ground up. I will cover techniques such as the proper throwing form, driving, approach shots, putting, and basic rules of gameplay.

Diving, Midrange, Putting: Improving at Disc Golf
If you already play, I can improve your ability on any of these topics:

  • Backhand throw: Proper stance, balance, reach back and pull through.
  • Hyser and anhyzer throws.
  • Driving with more distance and accuracy.
  • Midrange shots.
  • Putting with accuracy, short and long distance.
  • Forehand throws.
  • Backhand rollers, forehand rollers.
  • Thumber and hammer throws.
  • Putting: Proper stance balance and follow through.
  • Straddle putting.
  • Push putting or spin putting.
  • Hyzer putting and Anhyser putting.
  • Increase putting accuracy for long distance putting, 20 feet and farther out.
  • Jump putts.

Driving Distance: Improving form improves distance
If you already play but need more distance, I can analyze your form and identify issues. The most common problem is “rounding”. Eliminating rounding will improve BOTH distance and accuracy.

My Background
I have developed and taught a number of disc golf classes through the Parks And Recreation departments at Victor, Henrietta and Brighton. I developed and run the only 18 hole indoor disc golf putting league in Rochester for which I designed and created portable obstacles. Before disc golf, I have many years of teaching sports: I worked for 15 years as a professional ski instructor, as well as teaching baseball, basketball, volleyball and mountain biking.

Lessons at per hour rate
I offer individual and small group Disc Golf lessons for 3 or 4 people. I charge $30.00 per hour for lessons. Obviously, if there are more people it is lower cost per person but I have to divide up my time and focus among the group. If there is only one person I can provide individualized instruction.
