The Fairway drivers seem to give me a little more wiggle room and forgiveness on a bad throw. I def don't have a power arm my max with a D4, with a room is prob between 350 to 400. I know a lot of guys can do that with a putter… Do you guys think it would be better for me keep at this shot with a fairway driver or start trying to get this distance with a putter or mid???
On the course do what gets you to the pin, man.

Do fieldwork or putter/mid rounds if you like, but I prefer field work and THEN the putter rounds after I figure out how to throw them better.

Yeah, what kodachrome said. Just b/c you can reach it with a putter or mid doesn't necessarily mean it's the best disc for the job. Play the %'s. With being that open and the slightly limited ceiling, I'd toss a FW Driver probably.

Practice tossing your Buzz or Fuse at it, it will behoove your form learning to push those discs out as far and controlled as possible but for competitive purposes always play the %'s and get that easy putt.

Don't listen to some people on here that throw their putters on every hole under 400'. Throw what gets you to the basket in the least amount of throws. I would throw a tee bird, btw.

I used to have the same problem gripping mids and putters for driving, I switched to a fan grip for those shots, and it made a huge difference, I was using a power grip on every shot before that. Do what works is great advice, but after practice you can figure out multiple things that might work and you can then pick what works best

Oh and on this hole I would throw either a champion cobra or a TL

I'd flip your Valk, if you're going with your choices.

In my bag, I'd run a Star Orc at it, so I could keep it low and play the skip to the basket.

Well, I don't have a 310 putter arm. That River or Stag should get you there on a hyzer line. For me I would go to a Gold Line Saint.

Saint or Valk. Not much fade on that shot. Also enough room for a little hyzer flip or small turn in the flight.
