When learning the sport of disc golf, there are a few things to keep in mind. These include which disc to use for which throw, how to hold the disc, and how to release the disc. This blog will cover just one of those things: which disc to use for different types of throws.
Disc golf discs are similar to regular Frisbees, but they are designed for distance and accuracy. Discs come in all shapes and sizes, with each designed for a specific purpose. While it may be tempting to grab a disc and toss it without thinking about what type of throw you want to make, it is best to keep your throw in mind while selecting your disc.
The first decision you need to make when selecting a disc is whether you want a driver or a midrange. Drivers are simply longer range discs that are used for long throws or straight throws. Midrange discs tend to be smaller than drivers and have more control during flight. Midrange discs also tend to curve less than drivers.
Most disc golfers ask themselves which discs they should buy to improve their game. There are many different discs with a variety of flight characteristics, and choosing the right ones can be confusing. I would like to give some advice on how to select the right discs.
I have been playing disc golf for a long time and have tried many different discs. Through my experience I have found that there are certain types of throws that can be done with different discs depending on their flight characteristics. In order to play better, it is important to know which type of disc will perform best for the particular type of throw you are trying to make.
The first thing to know about disc golf is that there is a lot of equipment involved. There are discs for stable flights, overstable flights and understable flights. There are putters, mid-range and “fairway” drivers. Then there are different types of plastics, thicknesses, weights…
All of this can be very confusing to new players. It doesn’t help that most people just learned how to play by watching their friends throw and by trial and error.
So what I’m hoping to provide in this blog is some more clear information on which discs to use for certain situations. I’ll try not to talk too much about brands or models specifically, but instead focus on the types of throws you’ll see out on the course and what type of discs will be perfect for each situation.

A driver disc is a disc that has a wide rim with a sharp edge to it. Drivers are used for long throws when you need the disc to travel far. They can also be used for short, accurate throws as well.
Mid-range discs are discs with a small rim and flat top. Mid-ranges are used for medium length throws and putts.
Putters have the smallest rims and are most often used for short throws and putts.
