My thought would be that the average shot in ball golf is tougher than DG which would widen the skill range differences even more than they already appear.
I would agree with golf being tougher than DG. In DG, we throw the disc with just our arm which most people can be accurate with, while golf uses a 3'+ long stick with a flat edge to hit a round ball with just fractions of degrees to work with and be reasonably accurate.
