Hello, and welcome to Crowley’s Corner, the place for disc golf players everywhere.
Through the good graces of the powerful OZ (Oxrocket) and the CNYDGA, I am excited about this unique opportunity to write about disc golf in a way I hope will educate, inform and enlighten it’s readers.
Local, state and national coverage can be found as well as disc golf tips, quotes and editorials. I also want to do some course reviews and player profiles as well as highlight the rules of discgolf in way that will be fun and informative.
So- let’s get this thing started….
DISC GOLF “QUOTE”
“Leave the course cleaner than you found it”
Now, since I want you all to be rewarded when you read Crowley’s corner, my plan is to include disc golf tips that can help you play better. You can get started today so here is your fist bit of advice:
DISC GOLF TIPS – PLAY GREAT!
Ams – Learn to develope a pre-shot routine that works for you. A preshot routine is what you do and think about before you throw a disc. When you develope a routine it helps you focus on your golf and what you need to accomplish on each throw.
Pros- You can always improve on your game as well as your pre-shot routine. Work on your focus as well and you will eventually achieve a “narrow focus” that will allow you to be mentally strong in any situation. Visualize and plan your shot and execute!
DISC GOLF RULES!
Disc golf is fun to play and the rules set the boundaries that are meant to keep the game fair as well. Courtesy plays a big part and here are two violations that players may not be aware of. These are violations in a PDGA tournament.
From the PDGA rulebook:
801 Conduct of Players
C. Refusal to perform an action expected by the rules, such as assisting in the search for a lost disc , moving of discs or equipment , or keeping score properly etc., is a courtesy violation.
D. Littering is a courtesy violation.
THOUGHTS ON GOLF…
This is the editorial section of Crowley’s Corner. I have alot of opinons and not always the most popular- but they’re mine. Your thoughts and opinions are important as well. Most of the time comments will be allowed as to offer your views. (Just be polite- I can delete you heh heh) Please feel free to comment on any of the content.
Well I hope you enjoyed this first edition of the ‘Corner.
I look forward to serving the local disc golf community as a writer with the same love and passion I have for the game. It’s important to me to see disc golf succeed and I’d like to thank the CNYDGA and it’s members for making sure the future is a bright one for our sport.
For now, keep chinging chains….Gary Crowley-Editor-Crowley’s Corner
