Well I was going off of distance of what's listed on here so I figured that's less reliable than the tee signs

Yeah, I've noticed those are a bit off on some of the courses on here, too.

Who plays token by course par?

I always do this in my head when trying to figure out what to throw off the tee. If the hole says 350 ft. but it plays downhill, I take a 100 ft. off the marked distance and play it as a 250 ft. hole. With uphill shots I add 100 ft to the marked distance and play it as such.

I've noticed when I work out, in the beginning it's a bit tough,but when I get into it the reps are just easier.

The same applies for me in disc golf.I'll play one round and it will be a good round,but on the second round I'm killing my drives a bit farther and making better putts.

I think what happens is your testosterone(it works both ways) builds up and it gets more fierce with more throwing and the focus that is involved.

Hahaha, no one. I hope. :-|

I was just point out an interesting thing. I play them all as threes. Even the long tees.

I play most as 3's as long as they aren't ridiculously far

The thing hyzer-flipped perfectly and carried over the 20-30' wide road that is probably 20 feet past the basket, then went into some forest that is about 10' beyond the road. When it entered that forest, it still probably had 10-15' of height. I know for a fact that I cannot throw anywhere close to 500', so yes downhill does make a huge difference. On the other hand, it did make me feel like a bad ass when a pair of locals waited like 10 minutes on the next tee box to tell me i'm really good and then proceed to have me play through.
I have played there it is a slight downhill slope; but still that sounds like a good throw on that hole.

Generally, I throw better and longer on the course than in the field. Also, my personal best rounds on 4 local courses have come during tournaments. Try to figure that out.

I can't decide how far to throw the disc in the field. On the course, I throw it to the basket. That ends up being further than the spot I pick on a field every once in a while.
