300 or less is probably around 80%.

500+ is top 1%.

Most people I hang out with or come across can break 300...
300 or less is like 30%
3-400 is like 50%
4-500 18%
500+ 2%

No way 20% of all disc golfers throw more than 400 ft. Perhaps 30% of pros with ratings over 970 which might be around 1% of all players.

Hard to put percentages on it, but if I had to guestimate between all of the new players around, veteran players stuck around the 300 mark, and other various players I encounter:

85% probably under 400 feet on flat ground
10% throw over 400 feet
5% over 500 feet

This isn't directed at anyone in particular:

Throwing a big anhyzer that turns over off a 'top of the world' shot doesn't mean you can throw over 500 feet. If this is the case, I threw 600 feet yesterday at CSUMB Oaks~

Props to people who can routinely do this on flat ground, but I've played with tons of people who say they throw 500 feet and I can throw a thumber 50 feet past their average drive (aka, they are full of **** or managed it with elevation and a tail wind).

500+ might actually be around 0.05%. Or less.

Thanks for all of the comments.

300 and below--- 50%
300-400------ 40%
400-500 -------- 8%
500++++-------- 2%


also upon this is throwing on FLAT GROUND.. That is a huge difference than throwing down a hill or up a hill.

i was using the udisc app and was throwing right at 360 feet for an average with my longest throws. i finally found a field that i can use for practice with good judgement on distance.

There is absolutely no way that half of ALL disc golfers throw 300 feet or more. Half of PDGA members/tourney players, maybe.
