With two baskets we were able to play back and forth to the two baskets and got a lot of practice without getting bored, constant competition. Eventually it turned into a drinking game at bbqs too and we got our dads to play with us even know they dont play disc golf. They made us put a beer can on top and if you could knock it off it was 5 points lol.
I like the game and have played similar games but a guy on here made a statement that changed my scoring on this game. Only made putts score. Make 1 out of three, one point. Make 2 out of 3, three points. Make all three get five points. Just hitting chains or the basket is not enough on the playing field, don't make it acceptable on the practice field...

Very true, That is a good way to look at it. I think now that I am more confident in my putting that is how we should play. When we first started playing this game my putting sucked (still isnt great) so any positives I could get were great lol

Exactly what I said. It has helped a great deal...... You can also do a search for "Pressure Putting Practice" if you want another optional putting game.....jb

It is very hard because you want to watch it fly to see if it will go in or not.
this was great tip for me. i do this on approaches too and works great. same idea as the fh shot, being able to see the target throughout the shot. THANKS

I just do a pretty simple practice routine in my basement. (it gets cold in Indiana)

50 putts from 15', standard putting toss
50 putts from 20', standard putting toss
50 putts from 15' straddle putt
50 putts from 20' straddle putt
25 putts from 15' spin putt
25 putts from 20' spin putt
15 forehand anny putts (like from behind a tree)
15 BH anny putts (basically all wrist flip, little arm motion for being stuck behind trees)
20 putts from 20' standard style. Rapid fire 5 at a time.
300 total

I try to do it every 2-3 days, hopefully every 2 over the winter. I keep track on a sheet of paper how many I hit from each distance, and each style. My confidence on course is GREATLY improved, just by gaining some muscle memory.

Sounds good, but I have a question, Why "rapid fire" the last 20? I can easily say that is a practice I would never use on the course? Just asking, not criticizing...................jb
