  • What are the basic disc angles

  • Differences between flat, hyzer, and anhyzer angle

  • How to execute different shot shapes

  • Using your whole body to create a desired shot shape

  • What kind of discs to use for different angles

  • How and when to use these throws

In this course, you will learn the basics of the different angles and trajectories when throwing forehand shots. This course goes hand in hand with the previous Angles and Trajectories course we did with Avery Jenkins.

Avery will guide you through the three release angles and how to throw them with varying disc speeds. The release angles are flat, hyzer, and anhyzer. In the first part of the course you will learn these terms and the meaning behind them.

The first physichal throw to learn during this course is one of the most important skills in the game of disc golf: learning to throw putters flat.

You will also learn how to throw everything from putters to high-speed drivers at all the different angles.

By the end of the course, you'll be a great flat, hyzer and anhyzer forehand thrower! But remember, repetition is key when practicing. It doesn’t matter if you are a touring pro or have been throwing for a few months, let's head to the field and throw some discs!
