The Website Admin will probably move this to "General Disc Golf Chat"...
but, although I'm in no position to give lessons, a players first tournament is doomed to be humiliating. You never realize that there can possibly be any pressure or performance anxiety doing something so recreational - and then you're there.
It'll be great if you find someone to give lessons. I've asked around with little luck, but I have picked up several really good independent tips along the way.
What would be amazing is for a couple of local pros and/or advanced level players to set up a few clinics a year. I know a ton of people would be very interested.
