he asked what I threw. I answered.


Seriously though, switch to a fan grip or a modified fan grip. Your putters are fine, it's more about practicing than it is the disc.

One great way to practice your approach game is to play catch with a friend. Because you don't have to spend time fetching your discs, you get a lot of repetitions in a short time. And then when you're faced with an approach shot at the course, just think of the basket as your catch buddy and throw

I know it's not typical for folks on this forum but I only throw my putters with my putting grip anything else feels strange. For anything longer than 100' I'm pulling out my mids and powering down.

I tend to use a Rhyno on those shots. I don't know the name of my grip, but it's thumb on the thumb-trac and four fingers under, except in the really rare times I have to flick it.

I use a fan grip on the putter to about 120 ft then switch to a power grip. If there's any kind of a ceiling to worry about I switch to a more glidey mid...

The disc you use has nothing to do with it.

Practice, practice, pracrice.

Maybe start playing catch with a lid, too. Helped me a lot.

Same here. but I am trying to get better at the backhand using a really beat SE rhyno. FH is just such an easier shot to me when im in that range.
