Was messing around with this today. Thanks Derek. One takeaway I found that was helpful for me is to make sure you're not rounding. If you're rounding that is going to cause your hips to spin out...

Try using a fan grip for shorter putter shots. It will add accuracy and definitely slow the disc down, you'll come in slower and skip less.

Just imagine how even better McSauba would be if it got even a fraction of the upkeep and care that Flip gets.
