  1. Disc golf Back handdrive for distance

  2. Object is to throw disc into a metal basket in the least amount of shots

  4. Reasons why disc golf is a greathobby • It’s for all ages • Environment • Can be playedalmostanywhere • Most courses are free • Easy to play (hard to master) • Cheap (about 10 euros per disc)

  5. Discs • Driver (long throws) • Mid range (approach) • Putter (putting)

  6. Backhand disc golf drive for distance • Throw that utilizes the entire body in a rapid of movements that must be controlled and coordinated to produce the desired result, maximum distance • Starts out smoothly and accelerates to a point of an audible snap ( disc rips out from the thrower’s hand, because of the rotation forces)

  7. Grips ( power gripis for for distance throws)

  8. Backhand disc golf drive for distance • Eight phases(four lower body phasesand four upper body phases) • Approach • Preload • Transition • Load • Cross over • Pull • Plant • release

  9. approach • Starts when the left food makes contact with the ground and ends when the left foot loses contact with the ground

  10. preload • First upper body phase • Upper body starts counterclockwise rotation • Movement of the shoulders to prepare for the actual load phase

  11. Transition • Second lowerbodyphase (counterclockwiserotation) • Starts when right foot makes contact with the ground • It ends the preload phase and begins the load phase

  12. load • Usually starts when thrower has lost contact with the ground (during cross over) • Majority of the counterclockwise rotation takes place  upperbody rotates counterclockwise • Can be compared to a loading of a bow • Ends during the cross over phase • Head moves with the body

  13. Beginning and end of the load phase

  14. Cross over • X-step • Left leg passing behind the right leg • crossing the legs of the thrower briefly • Ends when the plant phase begins

  15. Beginning and end of the cross over phase

  16. pull • Clockwise rotation 1. lowerbody 1.1 heel or toe 1.2 knee 1.3 pelvis 2. Upper body • Disc gains speed ( generate enough force to throw disc excess of 180 metres) • Handscomes as close to the body as possible (spin)

  17. plant • Starts when right food takes contact with the ground and is ended with the rotation in a clockwise manner on that foot (begins in the middle of the pull phase) • Stopping of the forward momentum and transferring all the rotationand forward forces to the disc

  18. release • Disc has lost contact with the thrower (audible snap) • It is not letting go of the disc; rather the disc is accelerated to a point that the weight and speed of the disc combine to overcome the pressure of the grip • Follow through Helps disc to keep the energy (no slowing movement) • Helps not to get injuries

  19. Release and follow through
