  • Cheap Backyard Disc Target... Free for me :)

    Built this today out of an old bike tire and some rope, its about the target size of a basket and its helping improve my aim



    One day I will get a real one

    Has anyone else build something similar?

    I built something out of mostly recycled materials that works surprisingly well. The base is an old Weber grill that was left at my house by the previous owners, we got a metal pole and attached an old bike tire for the top and added some chains. It needs more chains before it works really well but it's great for practice. Also it has wheels so its fully portable.

        I've done this one and similar stuff also.
        One of my first practice targets was when I tied a tarp between two trees on the back side. Then on the front hung the tire. My trees happen to be fairly large so I had a few feet between the tire and the "backstop".
        Actually, my original one was a piece of black plastic cut and draped across the front. This worked good because the missed putts would just bounce off.
        Perhaps you could move one of those blocks under the tire and tie it off some more.
        Love of the game fellers!

              Not to get off topic, but I like the quote in your sig line.
