As I am sure some of you know, there is a popular Disc Golfer and form reviewer out there named Danny Lindahl. About a year ago I got the chance to talk to him over the phone and write up a story about him. Since then I have kept up with his career and watched as he has become an integral part of the DD media team. However, as I have watched his videos both on DD and on his own YouTube channel, I concluded something, his is vastly overrated. Enjoy!
Now, I am not the best at throwing discs, I can understand that. But his advice just seems so ridiculous to me. Talking about “Slow is smooth, smooth is far.” Just complete nonsense, how many pros do you see throwing slow? Exactly, none of them. They are all just going full speed and blasting discs 500+ feet on drives. So clearly, he doesn’t know what he is talking about on that side of things at all. He also talks about throwing more understable discs to get better at practicing your form and technique. Again, crazy overstable discs are what matters most. The highest speeds and most OS discs are what give you the most distance. I mean Simon Lizotte throws OS high speed drivers a quarter mile, yet he wants to talk about US discs? Absolute blasphemy.
The one thing and one thing only I will give him credit on, he has a good mustache. I mean come on, the thing is an absolute beauty of a mustache. He keeps it so maintained and so well kept I am amazed. He does look like one black hair dye job and a top hat from being a character from wacky racers, but that’s besides the point. The mustache should stay because I don’t know where we would be without it.
But even with the shred of praise I gave him. I think that I would do a much better job of media than him. Video coverage and videos are super overdone and honestly, I don’t see why DD hasn’t switched over to an all writing media team. Clearly people want to read stories about players instead of watching videos made by Danny. They are shotty production, bad transitions, and his characters are terrible. We get it, you can throw really well at your local 9-hole in Kansas, I bet I can too.
All in all, if you made it this far, I hope you can see that this is an April Fools day joke. All that I have said are jokes and I hope you didn’t take this seriously. Danny is a friend of mine and I thought he would be the perfect target for some razzing and an easy joke. No bad blood between him and I nor the people who work for and play for DD and trilogy alike. Love the videos and love the things they are doing at DD and Trilogy. If you would like to check out Danny, here are all his plugs. Look out for more coming from me very soon!
