My mission in writing and now promoting The Disc Golf Revolution is, for one, to close the gap between what the world thinks disc golf is and what is really is. If I can do that, I will also be sharing a few amazing storylines that will also help get the word out, and I will have helped accomplish the ultimate goal of letting everyone know they can play disc golf.
This first excerpt is from the Introduction. If you’re intrigued, please grab a copy on Amazon, read it, rate it, and share it! I’m counting on help to get the word out. Here’s the excerpt:
99.9994 percent of the world’s populace has never played disc golf. If you belong to this overwhelming majority, odds are you know little about the sport, or game, or whatever you until now believed it to be. “It’s throwing Frisbees around a park,” you might be thinking. “What’s the big deal?”
That question is addressed here, from every possible angle, and the answers reach far beyond the world of sports. In the following pages, you’ll learn the facts and meet the everyday people who make disc golf such an unbeatable proposition. For starters, disc golf is:
- Affordable for everyone
- Accessible to everyone
- Environmentally friendly
- In all the ways that matter most, authentically ‘golf-like’
The egalitarian nature of the game provides common ground for people of different backgrounds and beliefs, an important salve for a divisiveness that seems to sharpen by the day. And at a time in history when far too many of us sit under fluorescent lights all day and suffer from stress and anxiety, it’s a source of exercise, fresh air, and play that can fit into any schedule.
Kind of sounds like the superfood of sports, right?
It gets better. Disc golf, if it were actual sustenance, would combine all the nutritional benefits of kale with the yumminess of ice cream— while being cheaper than both. Superfood meets super good (or in this case, super fun). Millions of people play disc golf on a regular basis, and they seek every opportunity to share the experience with others. They want you to have what they have.
Tomorrow’s excerpt will be from the first chapter, titled The Future of Golf. If you want to be sure to catch them all, subscribe to this blog and like the Play DiscGolf Facebook page.
