Chasing Disc Golf and the Overall Title
Publisher: Scott Zimmerman
How does an ordinary teenager become world champion in a demanding sport--and stay on top year after year? This book explains how I did it. Skill and hard work, yes, but also grit--and a surprising amount of imagination. Come along as I hitchhike to tournaments, practice on freezing nights in deep snow, and survive lots of dumb moves along the way. I share many competitive tips and secrets. You'll learn how a tennis star whom I never met shaped my competitive attitude, and watch me design, and follow, the training plan that made me a winner, including a major championship in 2011 after a grueling comeback. Covers the fascinating history of our sport from the very first weekend of the Professional Disc Golf Association. Read dozens of exciting stories, including throwing across Niagara Falls on national TV, winning the World Frisbee Golf title, appearing in Hollywood commercials, and playing in the World Guts Championships. 30 photographs. 200 pages.
