Boldly throwing where no man has thrown before

Everybody following the Disc Golf scene closely has surely taken notion of a new rising star on the US Tour this year. We are naturally talking about the Discmania Sky Team member Simon Lizotte, originally from Bremen, Germany, who’s spent the best part of the year touring USA in our famous “Maniac” motorhome. Besides his awesome Disc Golf skills and fearless play tactics, Simon is known for his huge arm. A little less than a month ago Simon took his 2nd consecutive US Distance champion title at USDGC, leaving the 2nd finisher in competition 90ft behind with his astonishing 681 foot winning toss.

This weekend Simon will have a chance to attempt to break the World Distance record in an event called Fall Desert Wind Open, in Primm, NV, just outside Las Vegas. This event gathers around 15-20 of the world’s biggest arms together for an WFDF officially recognised opportunity to break the current distance World Record set by Team Innova’s David Wiggins Jr. on 2012. The current record is 255 metres (836 feet), so breaking the record will not be an easy task.

Going for the distance

“In all honesty I don’t have a lot of experience in pure distance throws in this type of setting, but I still feel that I have a solid chance of breaking the record”, says Simon, who’s farthest throw in practise last week in El Mirage measured at jaw-dropping 750ft/229m. The truly incredible part of the 750-foot throw was that it was thrown in calm conditions with very little to no help from wind carry. “I’m excited about this event, since it’s an all new proving ground for me. In many cases I don’t have much trouble throwing further than my competition in Disc Golf events, but throwing distance in a desert setting is completely different ball game”, Simon continues.

See a video of Simon practising for the Fall Desert Wind Open here!

For his record breaking attempts, Simon will use Innova’s Blizzard Champion Bosses, the very same disc model that David Wiggins Jr. used for his record throw 2 years ago. “I feel that the Blizzard Boss is a disc that has the best carry in the desert wind, when really going for a pure distance shot.” says Simon. “We discussed which disc I should use with Jussi (Discmania CEO), and he wanted me to use the disc I felt had the best chance of winning this type of contest. Since Discmania discs are manufactured by Innova and the 2 companies work very closely together, there’s really no problem for me using an Innova disc in a special event like this one”, Simon continues.

CONTEST: Guess Simon’s farthest throws & Win sweet plastic!

We are running a contest on our Facebook page, where you can guess Simon’s longest drives for each day of the 3-day competition. Each day we’ll raffle one Lizotte Disc Golf disc with Simon’s autograph to one lucky person who has the closest guess for the day’s longest drive. You can take part in this contest by submitting your guess as a comment to our picture post each day. The guess must be in feet and in case there are several correct answers, we’ll raffle the winner among those who guessed correctly. In case there are no correct answers, we’ll award the person who’s guess was closest. The winners of all three rounds will be announced and contacted on Monday, October 27th.

Day One contest – ENTER HERE!
Day Two contest – COMING SOON
Day Three contest – COMING SOON

Follow the action trough Simon’s Instagram feed

Since the Fall Desert Wind Open is a somewhat exclusive event mainly targeted for the select few players that have the arm for this type of competition, information about the tournament is pretty scarce. The best way to follow updates from the field is by giving Simon’s instagram feed a follow, which you can do right here. There will also be occasional status updates from Primm at the Lizotte Disc Golf Facebook page and we’ll try to do our best gathering some information also to the Discmania Facebook page.

In the Bag with Discmania CEO Jussi Meresmaa

Our CEO Jussi Meresmaa sat down with the SpinTV crew during the US Disc Golf Championship to give you the tour of what he carries in his Grip EQ Discmania Tour Bag. Thanks to a very busy schedule, Jussi doesn’t tour much these days, so this one is a pretty rare treat. Check out the video below:

East Coast Stretch – Deep in the Game US Tour

The Discmania Deep in the Game Tour streaked down the East Coast throughout New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Charlotte. Simon and I hosted a Deep in the Game Disc Golf Instructional Clinic in Philadelphia, PA at the Sedgley Woods Disc Golf Course which is said to be one of the Top 10 Disc Golf Courses installed in the world established in 1977. It’s always great to get back the rare beginnings of our sport and see what a Frisbee Golf Course used to look like because it hasn’t changed much since then, a great experience.

We left that night in order to get to Washington D.C. for a day full of sightseeing and showing Simon the Nation’s Capital. It’s always interesting to show Simon what sights and scenes our great country has to offer as I’ve seen many of the places that we’ve been this season many of times, it never gets old for me and I truly still enjoy traveling more than ever. On our way through Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia heading south, we eclipsed the 20,000 mile mark for the season through 42 States!

We made it down to Rock Hill, South Carolina for the United States Disc Golf Championships just in time to get some solid practice rounds on the days leading up to the event. It’s definitely a tournament that you want to be highly prepared for going in as the Winthrop Gold Course is always evolving every year to increase the difficulty. It’s a prestigious event that has been slowly losing its appeal over the years and it seems that less players are attending this tournament. I remember playing my first USDGC back in the early 2000’s when 230+ players were in attendance.

This year was Avery Jenkins' 14th USDGC appearance.

This year was Avery Jenkins’ 14th USDGC appearance.

There were several changes to the course this year including a few teepad and basket relocations in hopes to make the course play much harder and limit the scoring potential. I got the honor of playing the first round with the current 3-time and reigning Disc Golf World Champion, Paul McBeth. These changes were not made very apparent by McBeth making only a few minor mistakes to shoot the new course record of 53 (-14) as he dismantled he track shot by shot. It was awesome to witness, as it was one of those quiet course record rounds if there’s such a thing!

As for Simon and I we didn’t play phenomenal throughout the 4 rounds of golf, we both had our ups and downs with what it seems very conservative play on the very difficult course. Just to make things interesting, Jussi Meresmaa, CEO of Discmania, and Simon had a contest throughout the week of the USDGC. It was about to see who would beat who, with a lot of players selecting Simon for the obvious reason of being a Touring Pro that plays almost everyday. But what needs to be said, is that Jussi hasn’t finished outside the Top-10 in the past 4 years. It was a great battle through the first 3-rounds and what made it better was they faced off against each other in the final round in the same group.

All in all, they remained close in score as they tied during the round giving Team Jussi a 1-stroke victory over Simon and 9th Place for another Top-10 finish at the USDGC. I was insistent on catching and passing both of them but only shot 1-down for the round to finish 1-stroke back of Simon. Overall it was another fun USDGC but looking forward to redesign and restructuring of the event for next year as it has to continue to improve to remain as one of the best Disc Golf Tournaments in the World.

We left South Carolina en route to the beautiful white sand beaches of Destin, Florida for a few days to unwind and allow the body to rest in preparation for our long drive back to the West Coast. We also revisited Mobile, Alabama on our way back. Stay tuned for a Tour Recap Blog soon!

One of the most memorable events of the East Coast tour was to take the Maniac Motorhome across the Brooklyn Bridge and into downtown Times Square New York City!

Why We Brace

Some things are just easier to explain with some video, but I wanted to get this down. I wrote the following during a longer conversation on DGCR (where I post as HyzerUniBomber). If you want to skip all the words, the video is down below!
I think that the single biggest issue for the Beato drill is that with no step and no arm, most people look at you like you're insane when you say "Put the disc here and throw it."
It's like a bar trick or something.
And the trick - the way Beto does it in the video, is that you have to actuate the torsion in your hips and spine by dragging your back foot to get your hips to twist your spine.
The way that I promote using the drill, is more like this: do the drill slowly, not anywhere near as hard as you can. It's how I was able to discover the feeling of late acceleration by slowly moving the disc into the right pec, which requires you to allow your wrist to stay loose enough to bend in order to keep the hand on the outside. 
From that position, the elbow smack/ hand smack out front extension should let you hit 200-250' with basically no hips, no backswing, no real arm muscle involvement. 
It's just the collapsing and then un-folding of the levers and hinges that make up our arm/wrist/grip.
Just based on distance, that part of the system accounts for at least 50% - 65% of the force.
Adding in a way to increase rotational force around your vertical axis - at least the way I've come at it, is not by dragging my back foot to actuate my hips, but by more of a ball golf back foot - that rolls into the back instep from the ball of the back foot. SW22's video is the definition of this, you will see a crease in your pants pocket as you create the torque. It's more controlled for me than dragging a foot to kick off the hips.
The bracing of the plant foot, timed with guiding to the right pec - that should add force into the elbow smack and also load your wrist. From that position, the hammer pound should be so forceful that you can't hold the disc.
You should be able to do all of this as slowly as you want, and add in various amount of pressure to the system to add distance.

So it was with all this on my mind, that I started to shoot off some suggestions for some form requests that have been coming in. And I saw the same issues that I started trying to overcome earlier this summer. Failing to brace in a useful way - specifically in a way that would add some load to this elbow extension / hand on the outside.




A big part of why the loose wrist slams towards the forearm in the first image above, is because we are bracing our weight against the plant foot as we guide into the right pec.

So that's when the idea hit me to try to show and explain the fundamental reason that we're attempting to brace in a way that helps the overall throw. So I made the video below.

This video isn't just a response to "beginner requests", but one that I see showing up in guys who can throw 400-425'. The reality is that in disc golf, you can get pretty good results and still be doing the following:

1. Leaving usable force on the table, that can add more distance or make shorter distances easier to hit.
2. Putting more force than is required into the system which screws up accuracy.
3. Generating the forces for your shots the hard way which can injure you.
4. Using disc stability in order to compensate for coming over the top of your disc.

Soooo, enough with the text - let's go to the tape.



And if you're still not bored by this post, here's me throwing some kinda strange high hyzers with putters in a parking lot. Last shot I caught myself coming off the back foot kinda strange after the weight shift. 270-290'

Magellan Disc Golf Bag

Link: Academy.com
Price: $30

Free shipping at $40, so I threw in a shirt.

The really short review: This bag will be a pain in the side of disc bag manufacturers. It is impossible to compete at this price point for anybody not using very cheap labor. The build quality is surprisingly good. I had a PVC frame already built for my previous DIY bag - and it makes the discs stand up nicely. Enough of the text... let's watch a video!


MVP Towel

MVP says of their new towel:
“And finally at 16″ x 25″, the black MVP Orbit logo towel with included grommet and bag hook. Overmolding a disc golfer’s wet plastic with an MVP Orbit towel may yield a nice dry disc. And then that disc will fly 100 feet farther*.

* For once, this MVP overmold hype isn’t real. Overmolding only enhances GYRO™ flying discs.”

This is a stylish towel, with MVP’s clean logo. Cloth, absorbant, it’s great.

PDGA Approved Discs: Release Rate

As disc golf becomes undeniably more popular, more discs enter the disc golf scene, vying for space in disc golfers bags. These facts about how many discs are being approved today, vs just 10 years ago may blow your mind.

PDGA Disc Approval Rate

1964 – 1987 Disc Approval Numbers

According to the list of PDGA approved discs (found here), the first approved disc was in 1964. That disc was named, according to the sheet “Professional” and was made by Wham-O / DTW. Twenty three years later, at the end of 1987 that number had grown to 71 approved discs.

Discs Approved Today

Fast forward to 2013. In 2013 alone, there were 73 PDGA approved discs, and as of October 15th, 2014 there are 70 PDGA approved discs in 2014. Since January 1, 2013 there have been 143 PDGA approved discs.
In all, there are 686 PDGA approved discs. Nearly 21% of approved discs in the market, have come within the last two years. This does not take into account the large number of discs which were once approved, but no longer in production. Were currently produced discs only taken into account, the percentage would be much higher.

Disc Approval Rate Per Year, by Decade

One final way to look at how disc production has changed, is to view the average number of discs approved per year, during a given decade.

    1960’s: .2 discs per year, or 1 disc every 5 years.
    1970’s: 1.6 discs per year.
    1980’s: 6.9 discs per year.
    1990’s: 10.6 discs per year.
    2000’s: 23.6 discs per year.
    2010’s: (To Date):51.6 discs per year.

Disc Brand Increase

  • In the history of PDGA approved discs, 48 different brands have produced discs all time.
  • Within the last two years (after October 15, 2012) 27 of those 48 brands have produced a new approved disc.
  • 21 brands have not produced a new model within the last two years, either because they no longer manufacture, or they have not expanded their lineup.
  • Within the last two years, of the 27 that have made an approved disc, 14 of those brands had never created a disc previously. Over half of the brands creating new models today, did not exist before October 2012.

We’re curious what you think. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on any or all of the following:

  • With this many new models and new brands, is it good for the sport?
  • History shows us that not all of the molds being produced today will remain in production. Will discs be moved to “out of production” more quickly, because more discs have entered the market? Or is there room enough for all of the new molds being released, especially when considering industry growth in general?
  • Do you like the additional selection, or do you wish we were back to the days of ?
  • How much of your bag is comprised of these new molds?
  • From the brands which are older than two years, and have not produced any new discs, do you own or use any of their discs? If so, which discs?
