Once you can throw a disc 275' or so consistently and accurately, the most important part of the game is making putts.

But I also agree that fun is the most important part of the game!

The most important part is putting it all together and enduring the marathon that tournament golf is.

Accuracy. Even if you can only drive 300', if you can park 250'-300' holes and approaches, putting doesn't quite matter too much. But usually if your driving isn't the best, your putting tends to be better.

Well, my putting is ok. My approach is good. And my drive accuracy is ehh. So for me, I would say my drive accuracy is most important (that I need to improve at least).

Putting wins games more than distance drives. I think you definitely have to be accurate with drives, but getting tons of distance usually doesnt matter AS much.

Take a 500ft hole for example. There are very few ppl that can drive that far. Lets say I throw my max D accurately at the hole. Which would be about 385ft. That leaves 115ft left to the hole. It would be easy for me to get a 3 on that hole which is probably par.

Now the other guy I'm playing with can drive 475ft, but without as much accuracy, which is usually the case with a drive of that distance. So he drives 475 on that hole, but his disc lands 50ft to the right. So he still have 75ft to go, which is no easy shot for birdie. In the end, his long drive turns out to be worthless since he still got a par like me.

Distance is worthless if you can't putt. Thats my two cents.

even if the other guy threw perfectly to the hole and only had 25ft for birdie, if he can't make the putt then what difference does it make? My drives are way better right now than they were 2 months ago. But I'm still working on my putting since my scores have overall not increased all that much.

Short game. If I have a good short game, I have a good time. Bad short game makes for a grumpy slamma.

Case in point today....Missed short birdie putt on one and short par putt on two. Then I went out and bought some new putters. That last part was fun, but my herky jerky putting is not. And it is what seems to annoy the the most after a round. Still, worst day on a disc golf course beats the heck out of most other things!

Making longer putts would be nice. When I get outside of 25 feet, it's very iffy. Outside of 35 feet is almost never in.

Reality is... I can never carry enough beer on those hot summer rounds. Maybe I need to work on a "cooler backpack" for next summer.
