Still have to cross the bunCR at some point. And with no penalty for missing, it's hard to argue that laying up and pitching over (2 throws) is a better play than just getting on the green from where you are (1 throw). Even if you've missed two or three times in a row.

I suppose if they're missing short each time and they're running out of discs to throw that kind of distance, laying up is wise. But I'm guessing that wasn't the case and perhaps they were missing long or wide so distance wasn't the problem. It was accuracy. And shorter shots aren't necessarily easier to throw accurately, especially when it has to land in a defined area. I know I'd rather be at 200-250 than 120-150 feet on an approach like that.
