I’ve recently started to disc golf often and I’m curious if there are any advantages/disadvantages to the sport. I really like it but if it negatively effects my pitching, I would stop it.
If you throw correctly (just like pitching) it’s perfectly fine. However, I used to play and do over-the-top throws and experienced some relatively severe pain in my elbow which carried over to pitching. Never turned serious, but I had to shore up my form while Frolfing so I didn’t get hurt again. Just stick with forearm throws, or sidearm throws if you know the right way to do it.
