Improve Your Disc Golf Game – Dave Feldberg LEVEL Clinic

Dave Feldberg, 2008 PDGA World Champion and one of the best disc golf teachers, was in Utah last week where he gave this clinic. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate, so instead of doing the clinic at the beautiful Mulligan’s Creekside Disc Golf Course, he had to do it in a storage shed.

In this clinic, Dave teaches his LEVEL acronym that can help you improve your disc golf game and be more successful in life.

L – Learn. Learn why a disc does what it does and take the time to understand why. Learn the rules so you are practicing the right way. Learn the proper technique, even if it’s uncomfortable.
E – Evaluate. Once you have learned, evaluate where you are. Figure out where you want to go with the game to decide what you want to do.
V – Verify. Once you have the skills, verify that what you are doing is correct. Play in tournaments to make sure that what you are learning is translating to the results you want.
E – Execute. Execution can be the hardest part. Most disc golfers experience performance anxiety that changes the normal energy. Find a way to get over performance anxiety because it will hold you back.
L – Learn again. You can never learn too much. To continue to progress you need to continue learning. Continual learning will help you be good at things.

Dave gives advice of how to position your body to make a continual line that will give you the most consistent hyzer, anhyzer and straight throws. He also teaches proper footwork to help get your body in position to make these shots. Dave stresses the importance of keeping your chin tucked and your head down to maximize your power and control.
