Choosing the best shot out of a bunch of very good ones
June 5, 2018 by Bennett Wineka in Video with 0 comments
It’s 2018, we’re all used to seeing Simon Lizotte pull off some ridiculous shots with a disc.
In an attempt to best his own heroics, Simon and Discmania have put together a pretty rad collection of disc golf trick shots recorded at La Mirada, Venice Beach and El Mirage that include bikes, fences, drones and a convertible BMW.
Yes, the car is overkill in the absolute best way.
Because we would not be able to actually execute any of these shots, we’ve compiled the definitive rankings of each trick shot from least to most impressive.
Car Putt [2:35]
Docking points for distance.
Drone Shot [0:29]
An average throw-in that most of us reading could never make.
Signature Ace [0:16]
How many other signed discs are there that didn’t go in on the first attempts?
Revolver Shot [1:14]
Tricky sleight of hand.
Added points for side arm.
Life Saving Shot [1:47]
Pier Shot [2:03]
For some reason I assume Simon can hit this shot whenever he wants to.
Bike Shot [1:36]
Working across the body while pumping your legs. Maybe this is easier than it is in my head.
Roller Putt [1:57]
Not the most technically difficult, but jumps up due to my enjoyment watching.
Fence Ride [0:46]
We’ve seen Simon throw around some curved architecture before, and a fence has even more variability involved. Very visually appealing.
Car Catch no. 1 [2:24] and Car Catch no. 2 [2:42]
It’s the same shot twice. Not to diminish the quality of these two. Just saying, the second one wasn’t as exciting.
“Break the Internet” 70 mph Throw-Catch [3:25]
The sheer physics of being able to blast a disc like that and having someone cruise underneath for the grab at those speeds are pretty astounding.
HE?DID?THIS?ALL?BY?HIM?SELF? He threw a disc so far into orbit that he was able to get in a car and drive to catch THE SAME DISC HE THREW. SILLY.
