Let's go through the approach shots in disc golf that are throws made to position the disc closer to the basket.

Understanding the Game Basics


Understanding the basics of disc golf is instrumental for both beginners and seasoned players. Recognizing the essential components that make up the game, namely the drive, approach and putt, facilitates a seamless gameplay and builds disc golf etiquette. 


The drive is the initial throw off the tee, followed by the approach which tends to be shorter, at least for pros. Once within striking distance, the final phase is the putt after aprroaches.


The order of play is another critical aspect of disc golf. The player furthest from the hole typically throws first. This rule is not just about demonstrating respect and good sportsmanship; it also enhances safety by ensuring other competitors aren't in the line of fire during a throw. Understanding and adhering to order of play etiquette helps promote a fun, fair, and safe disc golf experience.



Enhancing Your Approach Techniques


Mastering the approach phase is one of the keys to achieving low scores in disc golf. It requires a fine balance of power, precision, and control. The goal of the approach is to get as close to the basket as possible, ideally setting yourself up for an easy putt. While it's tempting to power the disc towards the hole, finesse and accuracy often triumph over sheer strength.
