One other thing about this, is that the best case scenario (outside a lucky ace) is a 2, while messing up the shot can lead to a score higher than 4. And yet I still go for it...

I had a really random thought as I was driving away from field practice. I took a really sharp turn at speed and hit the gas perfectly to accelerate out of the turn.

No, I mean if you go for it on *every* borderline shot and make it, it puts you at 1st. As in you won't get 1st without playing beyond yourself.

It looked like the disc was too close to the pole to mark with a mini. In that case, is there a way to legally put the same disc in? Could you take an unplayable lie mark directly back in that...
