Player Roster

Check out the video coverage quality. Yes – this is some of the absolute best video production for a tournament that you’re going to see.

Also, with all of the shut down of the PDGA tour this year – it’s great to see some fresh coverage. These players deliver!

The play is absolutely fantastic. These are of course top tier pros doing their thing. But I can’t say it enough about how great the video production is. Very well done. Worth your time.

What is De Luz Disc Golf Course?

I’m still new to the sport and I haven’t heard about this course before. I’ve done some searching on Disc Golf Course Review and Disc Golf Scene. There isn’t any information about the course listed on either of these sites.

Unless I just didn’t use the right search terms. Totally possible – I make mistakes all the time.

Google searching didn’t seem to turn up many leads either. So, let’s use the power of the internet to see what we can come up with from other Disc Golfers out there.

Paige Pierce’s Go To Discs

Discraft has modified the old school in the bag video to a more streamlined approach of what are Paige’s Go-To discs. This video keeps it focused on her discs and doesn’t ramble on for 30 minutes. It’s like less than 8 minutes and you learn what plastic she leans on.

Her Signature Disc – Sol Review

I personally do not know this disc. So, I looked it up on Infinite Discs to get some flight information. I have recently began to understand the importance of the understable discs and this is one I’m going to give a try.

The Sol is an understable disc, so for a right handed player throwing a backhand – this disc is going to want to turn to the right.

The speed is at a four which is great news for players because most of us can throw this disc without having to try to power up to get it moving.

Lot’s of glide with the 5 rating. I’m a huge fan of glide – really helps with getting a bit of extra distance.

It looks like it comes in a few different plastic types. So there should be something that feels good in your hand.

Paige also has her signature series disc up on her website to buy.

Witness Grit and Determination

This Dynamic Discs Caddy’s View video follows Paige Pierce as she played the final round and fights her way back to a 5th World Title. Follow along and listen in as you hear Pierce work through the course.

At the 2019 PDGA Pro Worlds in Peoria, IL the chances of Paige Pierce winning her 5th World Title did not start well when after round 1 she was sitting in 9th place.

With four more rounds ahead of her she had plenty of ground to make up and that she did as she fought her way back to be in a 3-way tied with Catrina Allen and Eveliina Salonen heading into day five and the final round.

Danny Lindahl Breaks Down Paige’s Throwing Form and Technique

Great analysis and slow-mo footage to see the details in her form. Paige is one of the farthest throwers in Disc Golf. Her key to success is her form.

Disc Golf is not about how hard you throw or how strong you are. In many ways, the disc golf throw is like a dance move. It takes athleticism, balance and great form to get right.

Serious. Form and technique equals distance. This takes practice to achieve.

You can do it.

Disc Golf is not about how hard you throw or how strong you are. In many ways, the disc golf throw is like a dance move. It takes athleticism, balance and great form to get right. Also, you have to invest time and energy into it.
