^lulz. I always say that the best round is one where you don't have to putt!

The good news is short putts are the easiest to practice.

seems for me the more i think about the short putts the higher they go. cant stand the 3 inch yellow rim around the top of innova baskets for just that reason. its all i see when im that close and half the time i end up hitting it or landing on top of the basket. it can be frustrating, but i just have to remember to not think and just throw my putt when its that close.

take disc out of bag while walking up to drive.
set bag down.
flip disc in hands.
look @ placement of feet.
practice full range of motion of arm.
look @ basket & identify the pole.
exhale & release the putt (feeling limp wristed)...
F*#!
another missed 15ft putt. "well that was stupid"

Ah, yes, the yips. The scourge of many a golfer, disc or otherwise. Try a turbo, try opposite handed, try putting without pause after stepping up, try pausing for a long time before putting. Try spinning, try not spinning. Try, try, try. Focus on grip. Focus on weight shift. Focus on driving closer to the basket. Clear your mind. Think a lot. After all that, embrace your yips, they make you the player your are. Just don't let a little bad putting suck the fun out of a round.

Make sure to get into a more athletic stance. This is something I've been working on recently and it has helped my putting tremendously.

In most sports, I tend to take a fairly rigid stance on the field/court. This applied to my putting in disc golf as well. It wasn't something I ever thought about until this year. Now when I'm having trouble lining up even the easiest putts, I remind myself to take an athletic stance.

Bend your knees and focus on putting from your legs rather than just your arm. It's amazing how much more consistent my putting is when I really pay attention to my stance.

Best advice i've heard is practice. Throw 100 putts from 15ft. if you make less than 80 move to 10. At 15 ft you should be able to drill chains with bag on while having a conversation.
