Disc golf isn’t a sport you hear about everyday, but inventor Shane Wighton decided to break Simon Lizotte’s throwing speed record of 89.5 mph, which was set back in 2013. To play this golf-like sport, players discs made from polypropylene plastic or a variety of other plastic types that are heated and molded into individual discs. They complete a hole by throwing a disc from a tee pad or area toward a basket and then continuing to throw until the target is reached.
It’s safe to say that Wighton shattered Lizotte’s record, but this project took him the longest to complete to date, and there were some sacrifices that had to be made, including the accuracy of the throw. Since the goal of this sport is to reach a target with the least number of throws, it’s safe to say that this launcher won’t be winning any competitive games anytime soon.
