    Sylvain's Disc Golf Tips
    Most of newer players want to play with many discs. I advise to start playing with one or two discs and learn how they work in each curve. Before throwing, try to focus on the line you reach and find a routine attitude.

    Use the x-step can help you to go in good direction. You can also watch good players on video and try to copy their style. When practicing, before playing, choose 2 or 3 discs you like and make some pass with a friend, during 15/20 min, you will throw about 50 times. You can do it with putter and approach as well.

    A way to improve your game and watch your score get down: Practice putt from 6 to 10 meters every day (20mn) and you will see!! Don't try to throw as long as some other players, just try to throw smoothly and relax - And don't think about the hole before but think about the next one.

    Buzzz is a great approach: it is straight, long and very accurate. I can throw my Cryztal Buzzz with small hyzer angle and it will turn over with long curve and great glide.
