Women's Pro Disc Golfer Liz Dorries is on this week's episode and along with Eric McCabe we answer your Disc Golf Questions.

Although LIz Dorries still play in 14 tournaments during the 2013 Disc Golf season it was sort of quiet year for her as she took a break from the touring scene to concentrate on other areas of her life. But as Liz tells us in the podcast 2014 will bring Disc Golf a closer to the top of her list.

Be sure to listen to the podcast to hear her perspective on your Disc Golf questions.

Here are the links I mentioned in the show about OAT (Off Axis Torque).

Another busy week for myself (CDSB) and Eric which has put us a few days behind with our podcast. We both thank you guys so much for listening, sending in your questions, and for understanding when we get a little off schedule.

This episode Eric is on his way to Texas for the VPO, I do mean literally on his way as we record the podcast while he is driving. But we had 14 amazing questions waiting in the queue so we knew had to get this episode out and get these questions answered.

We are back for another week of Eric McCabe's touring adventures and your Disc Golf questions to help you improve your game.

Eric talks about his time in Warwick, NY for the Warwick Disc Golf Championships.

Eric talks about the new disc from Dynamic Discs, the Warden. The Warden takes everything players love about the Judge and removes the bead to provide additional comfort in the hand. This putter has a very straight flight path and can fly just about any line you want. If you prefer a beadless putter with a straight flight path then the Warden is the putter for you.
