Pretty much what you just said.you have to commit 100% or you'll never be satisfied with your progress. Other than that try to film yourself as much as possible so you can so you can critique yourself.

I wouldn't say I change my putt but I may slow it down a bit more. I know if I'm having trouble I'm sure everyone is having the same situation.

I was actually linked to this thread from /r/discgolf and read through it this evening. I created this account just to ask you to do an AmA on reddit. And also to ask, how do you mark your discs?
Nice, I mark my discs with my name on the top.some I just put a dot on if i'm just testing it out

Any reason you pick a hard putter over a softer?

I haven't picked a putter but I do putt with firm putters because they come out of my hand more consitent.

How much time do you spend a day on DGCR? Do you browse other forum threads? If so, find any interesting or useful information?

Fair enough, I wouldn't expect you to come across the country for a C-tier.

Do you tee off with a roc on the longer holes of the course like 9 or 14? Do you carry any drivers with you?
