Turns out your back foot contributes very little to the throw from the end of the reach-back to the release. It helps you keep your balance and acts as a counterweight, but it doesn't contribute much...

I think you've got it backward.

Consider a basket that was so big almost anyone could hit it from 50'. There would be no separation in putting. Everyone would get 1s any time they were within 50'....

And with a lower PDGA # than I have! :)

I believe 80-180 feet is the distance John Houck defined as "2.0 throws for an average pro." That means they're mostly laying up for the easy putt, too. It's in one of his "boring" zones, the other...

I wasn't certain that the cited 50/50 range was a true statistic based on thousands of putts, or tens of thousands.


PGA Tour pros don't three-putt too often either, FWIW.


Of course. It also...

To those who have said a smaller basket (or whatever that makes putting more difficult) would decrease excitement, I don't agree. I don't think there's any real reason why you should...

I'm curious what the curves would look like for disc golf.

P.S. I know you were mostly joking around. Ha ha. :)

It's just a matter of how much emphasis you want to place on putting.

In golf, stats show us that driving and approach shots account for about 65% of the separation between any two groups of...

You're more likely to get serious gouges if your disc catches or scrapes the edges of the metal when pulling the disc out of the basket than you are missing precisely in that spot...
