 Your Help is Needed to Get Disc Golf Recognized.

Let's show eTeamz that disc golf is a respectable sport!

Help get PAR-TWO ranked in the top ten. To achieve this every member of this newsletter would need to visit the site daily, you could set your start page to Just visiting the site gives us 11 points. Visit the "Tips and Drills" section and that's 50 more points (only once a day). For every different page you visit we earn another point, up to 30 pages per day.

eTeamz also award three prizes each month. If we happen to be one of the winners I plan on putting the winnings back into the growth of disc golf, I could hand out discs at the course, sponsor an event, buy a basket or two for a park to get a taste of disc golf or giveaway discs to the users that got us there.

 Responses to Last Week's Question
"I have noticed that when putting into the wind or at my back the disc reacts extremely. Does anyone have any pointers for me?" Anonymous
Putting into the wind your disc can fly up and over the basket. Use a stable putter . Wind against your back the disc will drop. Wind can be tricky and challenging.
