They will. The USDGC Rocs in the proshop tend to sell very fast.

What types of putts should I use?

What types of putts should I use, and what are the appropriate situations? Right now, I am working on push putts, but am not sure if I should add the straddle putt and/or other types. Also, what situations are more appropriate for different types of putts compared to others? (Ex: when are push putts a better idea than straddle putts and vice versa?)

I straddle when the lie dictates or if the area behind the basket is sketchy. I tend to miss low on my my straddles and right when I normal putt.

Straddling changes your stance, but you can push or pitch or spin (or spush) from any stance. It's valuable to work on different foot placement with whatever putting motion you decide on, being able to straddle when putting up or downhill or getting around an obstacle without having to change your arm and wrist motion will make you a lot more consistent in those situations.

Watching tourney vids I get that the spotter's red flag signifies that the throw is OB and the green flag is safe, what does the yellow flag mean?

Thanks,
Curtis

Im not certain but it could be that the spotter isn't sure if its OB and needs the groups decision.

Yellow-at the USDGC meant that it was in the "hazard" area. Throw from your lie, but with a 1 stroke penalty. It is also signified by the yellow rope, red rope signified OB

If this happens, generally you will see the red and green flags. Showing the players that the spotter is uncertain

yellow is hazard which is only implemented in some tournaments where you throw from the last place disc was last in bounds no drop zone if I understand it correctly its just like a +1 penalty area vs a true OB
