I can drive around 400' on good days. I have been practicing putting at home a lot, and I've gotten to be around 75-80% in the circle on normal days.

If my dad and I are playing the same 350' relatively open hole, I have the advantage.(my dad throws 300' max) His putting is killer, but if he leaves himself anywhere from 50-75' away from the basket while throwing a blizzard disc, his chances of deucing the hole are slim compared to mine. I'll throw a mid or a fairway at the hole on a much more controlled shot. which allows me to not put as much effort into my shot and keep accuracy up.

Fairways and mids are much more controllable discs than the warp speed drivers. On the majority of holes under 350', which is a large portion of holes, a person with 500' distance is going to throw a mid or fairway on a controlled shot, focusing on accuracy. Whereas the person with 300' distance is trying to at least get pin high or as close as they can to pin high.

I say distance is more important, if it is accurate or controlled distance.
