The current target zone height is at 51cm +/-3 (20-21in). Let's say we drop it 25% to a tighter 38cm (15in) +/- 1cm using MJs concept to raise just the basket part 13cm. In theory, 25% more putts would be missed which would be 4.5 per round. However, some initial putts would be close enough to be drop ins and wouldn't be missed regardless. Some of the misses wouldn't be close enough and players could miss a comebacker which will be a bit more difficult. I think we could still end up with 4-5 more shots on the score for scratch players. DG putting might close the current gap between DG and BG putting about halfway.
