Throwing a hammer

Why is it important to know how to throw a hammer?

The more throws you are able to throw the better because you will be more of a threat to your opponents and the harder they will have to work to cover all of your players when you have the disc.

When should you throw a hammer?

You will hear many different things from many different people, but there are several cases in which I think a hammer is useful:
