Approach Shot Tips by Paul Ulibarri

We recently hosted a pro clinic with Paul Ulibarri, Will Shusterick and Ricky Wysocki. These are three of the top disc golfers in the world, and members of Team Prodigy.

Paul Ulibarri’s clinic focused on tips to help you improve your short game approach shots. According to Paul, the most underrated part of the disc golf game is getting up and down from 100 feet. He has four basic tips to improve your control and accuracy on approach shots.

1. Get in an athletic position with your soldiers square to the target.
2. Keep your eye on the target.
3. Get the nose of the disc up. Having the nose of the disc facing upward will help prevent you from overshooting the basket. To make sure the nose of the disc stays up, Paul recommends keeping your wrist above your elbow.
4. Follow through with your shot.
