Very good advice. As simple as it sounds it really does help a lot. Majority of putting is focus and confidence, honing in on a single chain link can work wonders. Usually when I miss it is because I am just aiming at the entire basket. When I am hitting, it is usually do to laser focus on a single link and hitting it.

More great advice. Start small then expand when you feel comfortable. Build up a strong core of discs, your "go to" discs and work them as much as possible. Then as you improve you can add in a disc to fill a need you may encounter during the process. Trying to master 15-20 discs is hard, start small (3-6 discs) and slowly add more as your game and experience grow.

Use Youtube for putting videos, the best thing you can do is to try and master putting. A basket for home is nice, but might not be in the budget. Get creative and use a fence post, or mark a section on a tree trunk to hit, anything to work on hitting a skinny object. Then the basket will look huge when you go back to the course with all those chains dangling around it.

Of course the best advice is have fun. Good luck!
