Welcome to Ultiworld Disc Golf’s brand new mailbag! You don’t necessarily see my byline around here too much — I am more often behind the scenes as the publisher, but I’m still here as a co-host of the Upshot podcast with Jamie Thomas and I generally report from Worlds and USDGC every year.
Now, you’ll see my thoughts in print every week in the mailbag.
Generally, the mailbag will be for subscribers only (here’s our announcement about the new subscription), which helps keep me committed to writing it every week. It will reward subscribers with a weekly column they can count on. And it will allow us to offer a free one-month Mini subscription for the best question, email, or comment we get and publish in the Mailbag. If you’re already a subscriber, you get a free extra month (or a discount). If you’re not, you can come in and check out the benefits.
You can email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments, ideas — whatever you’ve got.
Question of the Week: Why hasn’t anyone created a systematic approach to learning the game? We have a host of YouTube videos that tackle the sport in piecemeal fashion and some rather basic attempts at disc golf 101. It would be great to see a company or Pro develop an instructional series that teaches people the best techniques, shot selections, and drills to focus on. DGI by Schusterick showed some initial signs of this but seems to have fizzled, DG Strong focuses on portions, but nobody has done something that captures it all.
Mailbag: Learning to Play, Crude Comments Towards Women, Brodie Smith’s First Rated Round is only available to Ultiworld Subscribers
