How to win at disc golf

To win a game of disc golf, all you have to do is fling a Frisbee-like disc through the air and into a chain basket in the fewest number of tries. You only need one disc to play, but the truly dedicated discman often has drivers, putters, and mid-range discs.

The secret is all in the wrist, enthusiasts say, but much of the mystery — and fun — also is in the course. And as use of most of the disc courses in the United States is free, the game is relatively cheap to play. Discs usually cost less than $10.
