Literally, Everyone Starts Somewhere

Disc Golf, like any other sport, is something that you gradually grow better at with time and practice. When starting out, the key focus should be to familiarise yourself with the mechanics of the game and gain comfort with the equipment. 

One essential tip for beginners is not to be overly self-conscious. Remember that everybody started as a novice at some point, and the Disc Golf community is exceptionally welcoming and non-judgmental. So, the next time you step onto the course, enjoy your time out there without worrying about how others might perceive your abilities.

A common mistake beginners make is trying to imitate the techniques and styles of professional players without understanding the basic principles. Try to keep your approach simple. Start with a straightforward technique like a flat, low, straight throw and progressively incorporate additional skills.

Find Your Rhythm: Practice Makes Perfect

Prior to a game, it can be beneficial to perform some practice throws in an open field to assess your throws and familiarise yourself with your disc or discs. This preliminary exercise helps you understand the nuances of your equipment. Or if you're just rusty and have'nt played in a while, it's a good way to get mindset right.

Different discs, due to their shape, size, and weight, might respond differently to your throws. By practising, you get a unique insight into how your disc behaves during a flight and how you can master it to your advantage.
