It’s as simple as using a baseball bat or a lacrosse stick. Really. Here are some tips to get you started, but feel free to fire away like nobody’s watching because there’s no wrong way to fling it. Check out the videos below as well as on our YouTube channel.
Best piece of advice: this is not golf. Don’t overthink it. You SHOULD swing as hard as you can. It’s all about bringing it back, letting loose and completely following through. As we often say: "Aim High & Let It Fly!"
The flat part of the grip aligns with the opening of the head. Through your hold, you can "feel" and adjust to the proper angle depending on how you are throwing.
You want to throw in an arc. This trajectory is important for distance and determining how the ball will roll.
Look up high and aim for that spot. Follow through!
Use your FlingStick like a lacrosse stick. Keep your wrists hinged above your shoulders and drop the FlingStick down your back. Then lean back, look up at around 70°, take a step forward while aiming at that spot as you swing. Completely follow through towards your target. It’s OK if the head hits the ground on your follow through, the ball will come out on its own.
Hold the FlingStick like a baseball bat and get into your batting stance. With the stick channel facing upwards and parallel to the ground, take a step toward 1 o'clock (for righties) or 11 o'clock (for lefties), and swing from low to high, opening the channel as you let it rip.
Use the FlingStick as a traditional putter, making sure to strike the ball with the pad. We recommend separating your hands and keeping the FlingStick shaft upright and close to your body to keep the head and Striker Pad parallel to the ground, even “anchoring” the shaft if that helps.
Used when the ball is further from the hole, this is very similar to the Bump and Run. Stand sideways, take a very short backswing, then roll your wrists as you swing toward the hole, stopping your swing to release the ball toward the hole.
If you have a FlingStick with a FlingNotch: With the ball nestled into the notch on the side of the FlingStick, open your stance and put one hand down the shaft. Then, push the ball toward the hole. Or use the notch of the other side of the FlingStick and pull the ball toward the hole.
