QUICK TIP TUESDAY – DISC GOLF TIPS

Quick Tip Tuesday – Grip

 

This week for your Quick Tip Tuesday, Infinite team member Eric Oakley shares some of his experience with the different types of grip, and how they can help you maximize your distance.

First, there are typically two types of grip: power grip and fan grip. Utilizing these grips with various shots can really go a long way in helping you gain consistency in your throws and greater distance.

Second, these grips can take some getting used to. Continue to practice daily, and you will get the hang of it in no time!

And Third, the power grip can help you get a good skip at the end of a disc’s flight, whereas a fan grip will help you land a disc more softly onto the green or fairway.

Meet Infinite Discs Team Member: Cole Redalen

Cole Redalen

 

One of the interesting and exciting aspects of professional disc golf is seeing the young players already making an impact on our sport. There are several touring pros that are in their teens, and two players in the top 10 in DGPT points that are 21 or younger. It is fun to see those talented players emerge and compete at such a high level. We’ll meet one of those rising stars in this blog as we introduce to you an Infinite Discs sponsored player, Cole Redalen.

Cole stopped by the Infinite Disc’s headquarters recently and took the time to make a few videos for our YouTube channel (check them out HERE). He also answered a few questions about his young career, how he started disc golf, and some of his experiences so far. So, let’s get to know Cole Redalen!

 

Getting Started

 

Like many young pros, Cole started playing at a relatively young age. Despite living most of his life in South Carolina, he didn’t pick up disc golf until his family moved to Oregon. His dad worked for Intel, and the company happened to be hosting a disc golf clinic held by none other than Infinite Discs’ Zoe Andyke and Dustin Keagan. Cole said that watching the flight of his disc was a life-changing experience. “Once I threw that disc, there was no going back.”

Up until that time in his life Cole had been involved with many different sports, like basketball, soccer, swimming, gymnastics, and track. At the time he discovered disc golf he had been focusing on basketball and taking that sport to the next level. However, once he found out he couldn’t play high school basketball, he decided to put his effort into disc golf.

 

Practicing During Homeschool

 

One aspect of his life that contributed to his rapid rise in the sport was the fact that he was homeschooled. That gave him a flexibility in scheduling that he wouldn’t have had otherwise. “Being homeschooled had its major perks as far as free time and practice goes,” said Cole. “I was out there every day putting and throwing in a field to get better.”

Over the next few years Cole continued to work on his disc golf skills while playing in more and more tournaments. He started to pick up wins in Amateur divisions and in 2019 accepted cash for the first time with his finish at the NADGT finals. However, that didn’t have a big impact on him. “Because it was an amateur event, it didn’t feel as big of an accomplishment as playing against professionals. But, it was a door I was certainly ready to walk through and excited to see what was to come.”

 

Turning Pro

 

Cole started playing in the Open Division from that point on. Although he started cashing in lower-tier

tournaments, it wasn’t until an A-tier event, the 2020 Kitsap Classic, that he felt he had his breakthrough performance.

The Kitsap Classic is held Port Orchard, Washington, and in 2020 included several touring pros. Cole didn’t win, but he took third behind Infinite Discs’ Dallin Blanchard and Nate Sexton. It was a watershed moment for Cole. “I really started to find my stride (at that tournament) as a 960 rated player behind Nate Sexton and Dallin Blanchard. At that moment I was already pursuing the sport as a career, but it really solidified the decision.”

 

Cole’s First Worlds

 

Another career-boosting performance came at last year’s World Championship. He entered the MPO long-drive competition, and he took fourth place! He not only cashed, he finished ahead of other well-known crushers like Gannon Buhr, Anthony Barella, and Thomas Gilbert. Cole said it was a total shock! “I knew I could throw far,” he said, “but as soon as the disc left my hand I was blown away. It meant a lot to see that I can complete against the farthest throwers in the sport.”

 

Career Highlights

 

Although the NADGT tournament and Long Distance competition were great experiences for Cole, he points to another finish that stands out as the most memorable for him. That would be at last year’s Ledgestone Insurance Open. He finished in 7th place and took home the largest amount of cash in his career to date, $2,425. Cole said that it, “really propelled my name onto the scene and told everyone that I was ready for the heat of the best competition in the world.”

More recently, Cole added another highlight to his young career at the Discraft’s Great Lakes Open. On the final round of the Pro Tour event, he shot a scorching -12! The 1082-rated round propelled him from 58th place up to 15th, and in into the cash. Cole said that it was, “exciting to see both my driving and putting come together all at once.”

Just last weekend the World Championships were held in Emporia, and Cole was there showing his potential. He finished several places ahead of his last year’s performance, proving that he can compete at the highest level in our sport.

 

 

Working On Form

 

Not content to just finish among the best, Cole continues to work hard to improve his game. Much of the time spent practicing recently was to hone in his form. Cole places a high value on having a consistent form.

“Form has been something that I have focused on a lot the last couple years, trying to find something that works consistently,” he said. “I believe form is a HUGE part of a player’s success and eliminate a lot of consistency errors while on the course.”

 

Influences

The desire to improve is undoubtedly connected to his years of athletic endeavors. But when it comes to disc golf, it is also aided by other competitors in the sport. Cole mentions all-time great Paul Mcbeth as one the people who influenced his career. Cole said Drew Gibson has also done a lot for him. He also mentions one other pro: Scott Withers.

Scott is an Oregon Pro whom Cole credits as, “making me the player I am today. He has been dominating the northwest for many years and constantly raising the bar higher and higher.”

Besides the influence of professional disc golfers, another thing that young player need early in their career is support from home. Some young players turn pro before they even get their driver’s license, and need someone to take them to tournaments and practices. Fortunately, Cole’s parents love what he is doing, and fully support him. He recognizes that he would not be where he is without their support.

 

Playing With Pros

 

Another part of disc golf that young pros need to contend with is being on cards with some of the top pros in the world, many of them idolized by the younger player. Cole was no different in that respect, and at first that was a challenge.

“As one of the younger players on tour, I was always nervous about invading other pros space,” he said. “I didn’t feel like I could practice or talk with any of the top guys without feeling like I should be somewhere else.”

He didn’t feel like his competitors looked down on him when he first started. He just felt like he didn’t have the decision making and course experience that the veterans had. Over time, he got comfortable playing with the elite players, which helped him relax and just play his game.

Being such a young pro gives Cole a perspective that he can share with other young players. His main advice to them is to respect the game. No matter the skill level you get to, there will always be challenges, and there is always something to learn. Serious disc golfer should become a student of the game.

 

Mental Game

Part of learning the game is the mental aspect. Cole said that when he makes a mistake, he figures out what when wrong, makes adjustments, then moves on to the next shot. He said that dwelling on a mistake is about the worst thing you can do to your game.

“Making another careless mistake after the fact because of frustration is the worst thing possible,” he said. “I know I am good enough to throw any shot out there so it’s just a matter of correcting the next one.”

He said he tries to play every hole as if it is its own round. Since you can’t play 18 holes before you tee off, you might as well play one hole at a time. He was told that the most important shot in golf is the next one.

 

Physical Game

Obviously, the physical aspect of the game is as crucial as the mental, and Cole said he does a good job at staying fit and maintaining a good diet. He’ll have a homemade egg-and-cheese sandwich for breakfast, with some yogurt and a large glass of water. As a bonus, his first sponsor ever is Oregon Sports and Family Chiropractic. He said they help with workouts and an off-season training schedule to keep him healthy throughout the season.

 

In His Bag

 

 

Since Cole is sponsored by Infinite Discs, he can have an ‘open bag’, meaning that he can throw whatever brands he wants to throw. And he does throw a variety of brands! Here is a list of his favorite molds in each of the following categories:

  • Distance Driver: Infinite Discs Emperor
  • Fairway Driver: Legacy Patriot
  • Midrange: Legacy Badger
  • Approach Putter: Wild Discs Sea Otter
  • Putting Putter: Discraft CT Luna

 

The Future

 

The future certainly looks promising for Cole. He is talented and passionate about disc golf. His approach to the mental and physical facets of disc golf belies his age. And his goals are realistic and simple. “I want to be the best disc golfer I can be,” he said. “I want to keep a good attitude and encourage others. And win tournaments!”

 

 

PDGA Worlds Week – What to Look For

PDGA Pro Worlds Logo 2022

This is arguably the biggest week of the year for the disc golf world. It is THE week when a World Champion will be crowned.

Now, the reality is that the PDGA Disc Golf World Championship is basically just another disc golf tournament. It’s a little bit longer than most pro events, but the only thing that matters is how an individual player plays this week. It doesn’t matter how well they’ve played the rest of the season, what matters is how they perform right now. The different between Worlds and any other tournament is the history of the event and the Title associated with the winning it.

If you don’t think there is anything different between this and other tournaments, ask Paul McBeth or Paige Pierce what they think. Even better, watch the documentaries on the Disc Golf Network.

To help you prepare for the drama of Worlds, Jace (used to be our main blog writer, now the editor at Disc Golf Reviewer) has broken down the narratives of who and what to watch among the MPO field.

MPO Players and Narratives to Watch For

Today the 2022 PDGA Disc Golf World Championship kicks off in Emporia, Kansas. Worlds is the biggest event in our sport, and after last year’s “Holy Shot” and phenomenal playoff finish, there is a tangible buzz in the air leading up to this year’s MPO event. The drama of last year’s
event and the pandemic have drawn a lot of new eyes to professional disc golf. So whether you are new to Worlds or you’ve been following since the Ken Climo days, here are some names and narratives to follow as you take in all 5 rounds of the high disc flying action this week.

Ricky Wysocki

 

Ricky Wysocki enters Worlds as one of if not the presumptive favorite to win the event and make himself a 3x World Champion. He has had an excellent 2022 season on tour with wins at Texas States, Ledgestone, and DDO, the latter was of course played on the same courses he will be navigating this week in Emporia.

There are lots of narratives to keep tabs on when watching Ricky this year. Emporia, Kansas hosted Worlds just six years ago in 2016, which is the year Ricky broke through the glass ceiling to finally win his first World Championship after finishing as runner-up in 3 of the previous 4
years. And let’s not forget whose plastic he was throwing and will be throwing now—For the 2016 season, Ricky left his long time sponsor Prodigy Disc to join Team Latitude 64 and switch his bag over to Trilogy (Latitude 64, Westside Discs, and Dynamic Discs). Dynamic Discs is headquartered in Emporia, Kansas.

After winning another World Championship with Latitude 64 in 2017, in 2019 Ricky Wysocki switched disc sponsors again and joined Team Innova, only to switch sponsors again at the beginning of this 2022 season. What team does Ricky represent now?

Dynamic Discs, meaning Ricky is back to throwing the same plastic he was throwing when he won his two previous Worlds. Oh, and perhaps you’ve heard of his rival…

Paul McBeth

Paul McBethYou can’t spell Disc Golf World Championship without Paul McBeth. While McBeth hasn’t
been as dominant in recent years (BTW, I’d take 2015 McBeth over peak Jordan or Woods any
day of the week, but especially on Sundays), he is still the biggest name in the sport, and it would
be a tragic mistake to overlook him. In every Worlds since 2012, Paul has finished as either the champion or the runner-up. He is a 5x World Champion for a reason, and I guarantee McBeast is one of if not the biggest concern for anyone who has hopes for taking home the crown this week.

Some folks might try to make a big deal about Paul’s poor performance in Emporia earlier this year at DDO where he missed the cut for the first time ever in his career, but this feels negligible to me for a player of Paul’s caliber. He also finished runner-up at Worlds in Emporia just six years ago.

Rather, the biggest narrative I’m following this week with Paul is the revenge narrative. He knows as well as the rest of the world that he was one miraculous “Holy Shot” away from taking home his sixth world title last year. The James Conrad throw in has overall been framed as a positive for the world of disc golf—it brought eyes and attention to disc golf and has been a resource to “grow the sport” as we say. But all of this growth and positivity has been at Paul’s expense, and not a day goes by that he isn’t reminded of it.

The comment he made off the cuff about losing worlds to an only backhand player when he was asked at the European Open about Eagle McMahon only throwing backhand shots due to injury shows me just how present last year’s Worlds are in McBeth’s psyche.

Will he be able to reign that emotion and energy in and perform when it’s go time? Looking at how Worlds has gone for the past decade, I think the odds are in his favor.

Eric Oakley Joins Team Infinite

We are very excited to announce that Infinite Discs is partnering with Eric Oakley!

We are proud to sponsor him as he competes in the upcoming professional touring season, and we’re also excited about all of the ways in which we’ll be able to work together for the growth of the sport.

You can expect a lot of helpful disc and product reviews, some fun signature releases, and tournament events in many parts of the country as Eric tours in 2022. We look forward to a great year with Eric!

Eric’s disc golf career really began when he was living in Utah. The first tournament where he ever cashed was the Infinite Discs Cache Valley Classic, located at the Logan fairgrounds — just blocks away from Infinite Discs headquarters. Eric was a member of the first ever Team Infinite discs for a short time before he signed with Discmania.

Eric will be a valuable asset to Infinite Discs by utilizing his online reach to grow disc golf and share product insight and reviews from dozens of different disc golf brands. Be sure to follow Eric on social media for valuable information and giveaways here:

Team Infinite Player Spotlight: Taylor Aubuchon

When I started my journey down the rabbit hole of learning about disc golf and buying discs about 2 years ago, Taylor Aubuchon was the first reviewer I came across. I appreciated Taylor’s succinct reviews that had no extra fluff in them: 60-second reviews, a couple throws from different release angles, flight trackers, and good descriptions of the feel and flight of a specific disc.



The more knowledge I gain, or think I gain, I still find myself looking forward to and immediately clicking on any new videos from Taylor. Taylor can pack just the right amount of information into a short and easily digestible video. Most of Taylor’s videos also end with a discount code to be used at infinitediscs.com

I reached out for a brief interview to better introduce Taylor to other Infinite followers that may not be aware of his content, social media presence, and mission to grow the game.

 

What is your disc golf origin story?

In late middle school/early high school (2007/2008), my group of friends and I were introduced to the game through our church’s youth group. I also took my dad and brother out to play and we were all hooked instantly. We were really lucky to have a great course just a few minutes away and started to play relatively seriously early on. Our youth group started a weekly bag tag series, and I even started to run a small doubles charity tournament within that first year.

How long have you been working with Infinite Discs?

Fortunately for me, Infinite started to support me after just my first review video, which was in March 2019. I’ll never be able to thank Dylan enough for believing in the plan I had for a different take on review videos! It’s pretty crazy to see how far I’ve come and how much it’s grown since then.

When did you start posting disc golf videos?

I started posting in March 2019, right when the first run I-Blend Emperors came out. This was a disc I was really excited about and thought it needed some more light shed on it. It was a mediocre video, to say the least, but it got some great feedback and I’ve been trying to improve and refine my style ever since.

How did you develop your signature and succinct review style?

I think as most content creators develop their style it starts out being mostly self-serving. After taking an extended hiatus from the game, my brother introduced me to the Infinite brand. I was hard-pressed to find any reviews or really any content focused on their lineup. Most YouTube reviews I was watching seemed quite long for their purpose, and I couldn’t find any review content on Instagram at the time. I saw an opportunity to create a more concise format that would be able to be pushed to the more underutilized avenues of social media. The original plan was actually to only post them to Instagram. I only created a YouTube channel to be able to share the reviews in Infinite’s comment section.

What disc surprised you the most after reviewing it? (You weren’t expecting to like, flew differently than expected, etc)

Definitely the Aztec. I had never really thrown that kind of straight control driver that still had good distance potential. When the I-Blend test run came out I loved the feel and flight it had, but it beat in just a little too quickly to be super reliable. Thankfully, the color glow run came out shortly after and I’ve had at least two in my bag ever since. The Aztec gives me the control of the Exodus, while not sacrificing much of the extra distance I’d get from bumping up to an Emperor of Pharaoh. If they’re ever looking for a name to put on the color glow Aztec, I know a guy that’d be pretty interested.

What is your favorite Infinite disc?

The Tomb without a doubt. I power grip everything but putts, so the Tomb is a perfect throwing putter for me with its shallow rim. Right now I’m bagging a Splatter S-Blend for overstable, C-Blend for stable, and D-Blend for understable throwing putter slots.

Check out Taylor’s Tomb review here:

Infinite Discs D-Blend Tomb Review

What is your favorite non-infinite disc?

I’ve had a full infinite bag for a bit over a year now, but the hardest disc for me to take out was the Westside Discs Pine. I enjoy a taller, more overstable feeling Midrange that beat into straight fliers. Taking the time to beat a disc into that perfect spot gives you a level of confidence and trust in it that can’t easily be replaced.

Who is your player on tour?

I always look forward to watching Drew Gibson shred out there. Best backhand form on tour!

Do you compete in tournaments? Discuss some local events, results, experiences, etc.

Unfortunately, it’s been a couple of years since I’ve played a local event, but I’m hoping to get back out there soon! 

What are some of your disc golf goals?

Since really diving into content creation, most of my goals center around growing my presence to be able to share these awesome discs with as many people as possible! It’d be awesome to hit 1000 YouTube subscribers someday, but I try not to focus too hard on any specific avenue as there are so many outlets to push to. As far as disc golf specific, I’m always tweaking something in my game. Right now the goal is to develop a more consistent forehand, there’s a reason you’ve never seen me throw a forehand in any video…

What are some of your hobbies outside of and other than disc golf?

Before disc golf, my biggest passions were music and video games. I played in local bands throughout high school and dove pretty deep into music production afterward. I’ve also streamed via Twitch off and on since around 2015. Although music has taken a bit of a back seat recently, I still stream regularly at twitch.tv/ursapls and would love to talk disc golf, gaming, or music with anyone that wants to stop by!

Introducing Allison Haggett of the Signature Team

Welcome Allison Haggett to the Infinite Discs Signature Team! Allison is from Bowdoin, Maine and competes in the FPO division. This is her first year on the Signature Team, and we were fortunate enough to get to learn a bit more about her!

How did you get started in disc golf?

When I met my husband in 2014 he played disc golf almost daily.  I didn’t tag along much as I didn’t like playing with men who could outdrive me constantly.  I felt like I was a burden.  Flash forward to 2016, I went and watched the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships that was held here in Maine and I was hooked!  I jumped in full force in 2017 and started playing and competing in the FA1 division.  I have always been a competitive person so having a sport that I could compete in as an adult was fascinating to me.  I’ve never looked back!

 

 

Is there anyone in particular you look up to or admire in the game?

When I started playing I was star-struck by Paige Pierce and her determination and skills in the sport.  I was always watching FPO coverage and trying to learn the ins and outs of the sport.  I will always look up to Paige and her domination in this sport, but I also look up to Jessica Weese, Kona Panis and Des Reading for all they do to grow the sport and their amazing talents on the course.

 

What is your favorite type of shot to throw?

I love throwing a flippy driver through a wooded fairway and watching it carve through the trees.  We have a lot of wooded golf here in New England so those shots are a must have in the bag.  I also love throwing putters off the tee, I think it’s such a smooth clean shot.  

 

Which of your disc golf achievements are you most proud of?

Having my own signature disc and making the Infinite Signature team!  This was a dream of mine when I started out and it’s now a reality! Before this achievement I was proud of my AM world showing.  I qualified for AM worlds my first season competing and went down to Charlotte in 2018 to compete in it! I placed 6th behind some pretty big names in the game, which was a huge accomplishment for me.  My goal was to place in the top half and I exceeded that along with making some great connections with some amazing ladies.   

If you could play a round with only three discs, which would they be?

That’s easy! I would use a Pharaoh, Inca and a Cohort! 

Other than disc golf, what else do you enjoy doing?

I am a big outdoorsy girl, when I am not playing disc golf you can usually find me fishing! I enjoy fishing all year round, bike riding, four wheeling, camping, kayaking, etc. 

 

What tips do you have for newer players or players looking to improve their game?

Don’t be intimidated, we all start somewhere! Ask questions about things you are unsure of, it’s better to ask then to keep wondering.  Start with putters to learn control and to work on your form before trying out high speed drivers.  Go to leagues and meet new people! You’d be surprised how much you learn at weekly league nights! 

If people want to follow along on your journey, where can they best follow you?

Allison’s Signature Splatter S-Blend Pharaoh is now available, so be sure to get on while you can. Welcome to the Signature Team, Allison! Good luck this season! 

Get to Know Signature Team Member Chris Becker

Welcome Chris Becker to the Infinite Discs Signature Team. Chris lives in Eugene, Oregon, and is a Collegiate Disc Golf National Champion. Chris has been playing in tournaments since 2010. We’re thankful he was able to chat with us a bit so we could get to know him a bit better!

How did you get started in disc golf?

 

I started playing disc golf when I was in elementary school. Across the street was a 9 hole course called West Morland in Eugene, Oregon. I played with my friends there often and started to meet some locals.

Is there anyone in particular you look up to or admire in the game?

I look up to Dave Feldberg, being my old coach at the University of Oregon Disc Golf team. He was number 1 in the world at the time and I think that gave us all a boost of competitiveness.

What is your favorite type of shot to throw?

My favorite type of shot to throw is with a flippy putter or mid range. Throw it with some hyzer, let it flip up to flat, and ride straight. Maybe even tail a little right at the end. I like this shot because the discs I use for it are similar to how an Ultimate Frisbee flies. 

Which of your disc golf achievements are you most proud of?

I am most proud of winning Collegiate Nationals my freshman year in 2010 at the U of O. That was what catapulted my love to compete at tournaments. Also, having the opportunity to teach disc golf at a University for 5 years thanks to Nate Sexton! These are experiences I will never forget.

If you could play a round with only three discs, which would they be?

I would choose to throw a KC Pro Aviar, S line chariot, and a Star Destroyer

Other than disc golf, what else do you enjoy doing?

I enjoy running, swimming, hiking, music, reading, and hanging with friends.

What tips do you have for newer players or players looking to improve their game?

Start simple. Throw putters first. Once you can control those, move to mid range discs, and then drivers. Accuracy will always trump distance. If you want to play this game for a long time, don’t over do it. Throw smooth and be mindful.

If people want to follow along on your journey, where can they best follow you?

You can follow me on Instagram.

Chris will have a signature disc this year, so be sure to keep your eyes open for that! Also, make sure to follow along on his disc golf journey. If you’re competing in the Pacific Northwest, then there’s a good chance you will see Chris out there. Good luck this season!

Get to Know Signature Team Member Scott Zimmerman

Meet Scott Zimmerman! Scott is a new member to our Signature Team this year. He resides in Fort Worth, Texas. Scott joined the PDGA in 1977 and is PDGA #168! He even has his own book published. Thankfully Scott was able to answer some questions for us to get to know him better!

 

 How did you get started in disc golf?

Several events conspired to get me started in disc golf. At age 14, I randomly saw two professional Frisbee shows and that increased my interest to play after school everyday. When my father saw that, he bought me Stancil Johnson’s classic Frisbee book and I learned about disc golf. So I created a couple of courses around my house and played two rounds everyday after school. When I turned 15, I was lucky to find out about the first Virginia State Championships. I went there and won golf competing against grown men. It hooked me.

Is there anyone in particular you look up to or admire in the game?

Yes, too many to list. I admired Don Wilchek’s thumb roller, Sam Ferrans long arms in distance and extreme putting accuracy, Joe Ursino’s laser sidearms, Crazy John Brooks powerful pivot, and Gregg Hosfeld’s unmatched dedication to the entire sport.

What is your favorite type of shot to throw?

That would be a backhand roller, because sometimes I can land them just right and achieve awe-inspiring distances.

Which of your disc golf achievements are you most proud of?

Though I won the World Frisbee Golf Championship in 1982, my greatest achievement ever was leading the entire field by 7 strokes after the first 18 holes at the St. Louis National Series tournament in 1982. If we had rated rounds then, a margin like that in such a large national tournament would have been rated well over 1100.

 

If you could play a round with only three discs, which would they be?

Hydrogen by Loft Discs for putting and up shots; Centurion by Infinite Discs for straight fairway drives and backhand rollers; and the Aztec by Infinite Discs for long straight drives. You might notice a pattern there–I love really straight flights.

 

Other than disc golf, what else do you enjoy doing?

Nature hikes with my dog; and anticipating the day when I’m done rebuilding the master bathroom shower that I already tore apart.

What tips do you have for newer players or players looking to improve their game?

Get in lots and lots of field work because you get more “throws per minute” (TPM) than playing a course. You must have a higher TPM if you want to improve rapidly.
