You know that feeling when you walk into your local disc golf shop and today is going to be a day where you buy a new disc? I love that feeling. It happens to me sometimes when I walk into work. That’s the real danger of working in a Pro Shop. That and the amount of goats who try to barge in when it’s hot in the summertime.
I’m going to discuss how to do some planning on what you buy. So you don’t make the same mistakes that I did. I’ve got a rack of overstable max weight distance drivers in the garage, so I definitely didn’t have a plan going into setting up my bag. I would go out to the course and buy a new driver every couple of weeks. It’s important to try new discs to get better. I wrote about bag stagnation last year, and what you can do about it. If you’re going to buy a new disc it’s time to come up with a plan.
Let’s talk about what I do when I’m looking for a new disc.
These are the steps I take to decide on getting a new disc. If you’re just getting into the sport please try these tips out. You can save yourself lots of redundant disc purchases if you go through these steps before buying.
If you’ve already got a massive collection of discs, what steps do you take before purchasing a disc?
May your discs miss all the trees,

We’re reaching an interesting time in disc golf. Where we’ve got a massive crop of talent at the top. Plenty of other touring pros cash frequently enough without scratching the top 25 in talent and can tour with their winnings and sponsorships.
So let’s take a step back from calling anything other than a win a failure. Improvements from year to year on a course could be a win for some of these players. Finishing top 10 should be considered good for young players. The days of players dominating and winning every single weekend are basically over. Competition is tight at the top, and it’s only getting better.
