You have described the evolution of all good players transitioning to straighter more controllable discs. The most important shots are upshots getting you to your comfortable putting range, or under the basket. You want to use the straightest disc you got, just like the 14 golf clubs you can carry. You would use a wedge rather than a 7 iron to get the distance you need. I throw mids and putters a lot. Rocs and big bead stiff Aviars for straight up shots or short tee shots. Gets me close!!! Not putting is the goal!!! I'm sure your drivers have evolved too as you can throw line drives with controllable spin to make them go straight. A lot of beginners use drivers for a lot of short shots and lose a lot of strokes on the long putts they miss coming back to the basket after an errant up shot. Keep 'em flying true!!!
