MA4 Tip: Committed

If you ain't going to throw it for real, don't throw it.

I make commitments all the time. I commit to my wife. I commit to my kids. I commit to my dog. I'm committed to being a positive part of their lives so we can function as a happy and satisfying family unit.

That's what you need to do on the disc golf course every shot.

Commit to every shot, whether it's a 9 foot putt or a 300 foot bomber. For me, the upshot has been the hardest to commit. And when I don't commit, my upshot comes up 20 feet short, or it sails off into the bushes.

But unlike a family, which requires changing poopy diapers and picking up dog crap, committing to a disc golf shot is easy, you just have to think about it for a second before throwing.

I tell myself, that I have it all lined up right and I know exactly what I'm doing, even if I don't. Playing disc golf is actually a lot like being a parent.
