So you’re new to disc golf and looking for some advice. We are here to help.
Disc golf is one of the fastest growing sports in the country. For many, disc golf has a cult like following. The avid disc golfers watch professional disc golf (yes it is a thing, check out youtube channels by Jomez Pro and Central Coast). They follow the top disc golf brands and purchase every new disc on the market because that new disc just might be the next game changer that allows them to go pro right? They play disc golf tournaments almost every weekend. Disc golf isn’t just a hobby, it is life to them.
There are more than a dozen different disc golf brands who focus primarily on making discs for the professionals. Why do they focus on the professional disc golfers when so much of the disc golf market is made up of beginners and recreational players?
The top disc manufacturers focus on making discs for the top pros, because pros help sell discs. The avid disc golfer wants to be like the pro so they need to purchase the discs the pros use.
In most industries, there is something called the 80-20 rule. 80% of the business comes from 20% of the users, the “super heavy users.” In disc golf, because of it’s cult like following, I think it’s more like 90-10. 10% of disc golfers purchase 90% of the discs and that’s why the manufacturers make them.
This website is focused on the other 90%. It focus is on providing information and advice for the majority of disc golfers. Those who primarily play recreationally, but are still looking for an advice on tips to improve and which discs to buy.
