I have an issue with depth perception, so I definitely understand your pain. Besides under/over estimating the distance, I have found that, unlike ball golf, you can rarely walk in a straight line...

You also have to remember a disc will fly differently depending on if you throw it backhand or forehand. You could quickly get a lot of markings on your discs. Backhand - glides long, hard left. ...
