Yes, even if it takes you 153 throws, you only get a 6.

I think it messes with the game, but it kind helps out the 1 or 2 people we play with that aren't great...
I've never heard of people doing that but there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. If those guys aren't very good golfers then I can see this actually helping move things along if the course is busy - maybe preventing frustration for both them and the players behind you.

I'm always a fan of having fun and playing how you like. I generally follow the pdga rules unless we're doing some goofy round, but just have fun whatever you do and enjoy the game. Nobody says you have to take it seriously and be competitive outside of tournaments and leagues!

So once you throw 6 you're done, no matter what. It's a speed of play rule. It's similar to bogeying out line in ball golf, but I think it's like 15 strokes then.

You can actually throw past 6 if you want, you just get marked with a 6.

Ah, so you're rules are a little different. So instead of speed of play, its more to keep scores relatively competitive I guess?

Yes, it was a rule for when we played putt-putt as children. For some reason my brother thought it would be good for disc golf. It doesn't much matter because we rarely get more than 6 anyways. It's helpful for when we play with people that don't really play.

1. Think Ballerina: Smooth amd Graceful Movement

2. Rock back and forth a few times before you putt so you remember to push off

3. Graceful leg extension in conjunction with arm and wrist extension. This gives me balance, like two opposing levers.


4. Pinch disc with thumb and bird finger to create a pivot point (even tho they don't exactly line up)
**Side Note: how come no one on DGCR ever told me to apply pressure with my thumb and finger? I have struggled w/my putter looking like a wounded duck for 3 yrs!**

5. Vertebral extension on follow-thru w/small amt of Anny on long putts. Mostly created by fully extending my body and arm towards the basket.

6. Take your time, you have 30 seconds.
I used to do a bunch of stuff before putting, but I had a bad tourney where I psyched myself out on a bunch of putts, so I changed my routine to:

1) Get to disc. Look at basket to judge distance.
2) Set down mini.
3) Look at basket and throw.

No way to psych myself out then. Putting is a lot of muscle memory, so I like to just get up and go

Are overhand putts 10-15 feet from the basket legal by PDGA standards? (I'm talking about the technique where you have your thumb/pinky under the bead and your middle three fingers resting above)

You can propel the disc however you want at any time, no restrictions on grip or throwing style.
