Scott Stokely And His Return To Disc Golf

Scott Stokely reflects on  being absent for most of the decade, his new line of discs, and his return to disc golf.

Scott Stokely first came to my attention around 2005-ish. I was scouring eBay looking for disc golf deals when I came across his book. It was and still is a great read for anyone wanting to get better at disc golf. Since then I never heard a word about him. Scott Stokely, with the PDGA# 3140, left the sport for other persuits, endured some major ups and downs, and then decided to come back to his roots – disc golf.


Scott Stokely has returned to disc golf and he is bringing his own line of plastic: Fly High Discs

“…I got back into the sport because I went through a horrible divorce and had a period of about 8 months that were the lowest of my life…I had lost my wife and my business had failed and as a result I lost my home. I feel like such a piece of shit and a failure.  I was being self destructive and my life was spiraling downward. It was far and away the worst thing I had ever been through. I got back into disc golf because I need my family. I needed the love that the disc golf community offers and I needed my identity…”

Give A Disc To A New Disc Golfer

Give a disc to a new disc golfer and let them experience their new disc golf addiction!

More than once a potential new disc golfer has seen me throwing some discs on the disc golf course and asked me about the sport. On other occasions I have run into a gaggle of new disc golfers that had barely any discs to throw and the discs that they had were for advanced players. The solution is to dip into my guest bag (or trunk of my car), grab some disc golf discs, and give them to the new disc golfer(s). You can greatly help share/spread the sport this way! There are a few things to consider when you give a new disc golfer a disc or 2. I suggest these 5 things to think about when giving away a disc: Continue reading

Disc Golf Club: The Building Block of Disc Golf

The disc golf club grows as it shares/spreads the sport

The effects of the disc golf club are felt everywhere. Think about how disc golf got started in your area. Chances are that some like-minded individuals banded together and mapped out a course. Once the course was mapped out it needed some baskets and some kind of “tee pads“. That is where a good disc golf league can raise the money. Most of the time the league is run by the local club. The same club that installed the course also develops the disc golf culture. In my humble opinion, the disc golf club is the basic elementary building block of disc golf.
