 Make other athletes aware of disc golf!

We are currently in 132nd place with 20,078 points, keep up the site activity.  I would like to see us start breaking the 40,000 point mark regularly.  We have one week to double our points.

Each week when you receive this newsletter take 10 seconds and visit PAR-TWO and then click on the "Tips and Drills" section.  Then feel free to visit the rest of the site. 

If everyone receiving this newsletter would just visit the site we would have over 35,000 points each month. Add visiting the "Tips and Drills" section and our total would skyrocket to over 182,000 points per month which would DEFINITELY get disc golf noticed by the millions of athletes at eTeamz.

eTeamz also awards three monthly prizes.

  • One for sites between 20K and 40K points.
  • One for sites between 40K and 60K points.
  • One for sites over 60K points.

Any prize won will help the growth of disc golf.

 
 The UPCOMING EVENTS section is getting BIG!
I am thinking about moving the UPCOMING EVENTS section to the website, with a link in the newsletter.  Let me know your feedback on this.  This section is dedicated to the weekly and monthly events at YOUR local course.  When you are traveling and want to play draw-doubles at a new course you can find what's happening in this section.

 Why is Disc Golf better than ball golf?
  • "A good putter is only about $15."
  • "Tiger Woods has no hyzer."
  • "You don't HAVE to wear those LOUD pants."
  • "Discs don't attract lightning during a storm."
  • "Have you ever swung a golf club back-handed?"
  • "Try playing a round of ball golf in 45 minutes."
  • "Try getting a tee time when you just show up for a round."

 Responses to Last Week's Question
What is the best way to increase distance in my throws?
Anonymous
There are many facets to increasing your throwing distance.  here are some basic topics to get started with.
  • Choose a "Ultra Long Range" disc.
  • Get the right grip
  • Throw flat and level.
  • Snap the disc to really get it going.
  • Follow-through.
  • Keep focused.

Feel free to request more information on any of these topics or write up a more detailed response for our readers.
