Smaller baskets no doubt, 25 footers shouldn't basically be gimmes for top level.

10' is miss-able in ball golf. The holes are typically about 1000'. 1% distance is a miss-able putt. DG ... 300' holes, and 30' is miss-able (I guess) ... 10x as much distance taken up putting.

However ... our holes are elevated. In ball golf, a miss on a 10' putt could mean you're infinitesimally close to the pin (and often does). A miss from 30' in dg usually means a 15' comebacker. The infinite loop of 15 footers is not inviting :/

10' are only 40% on the PGA Tour if I recall correctly. Basically you need to one putt in disc golf, putting is far far far easier.

His reaction to the long putt in the playoff with Ricky: "It was just a 35 footer." Lol

That was actually pretty good.

Super distracted with the ultimate game in the background though. Haha

Being bored, I waded through the Stokely thread to see what all the fuss was about. After Paul's interview, I was pleasantly encouraged that our sport/hobby has a sane voice. A much better diversion from the ridicules drama on the forums lately.

1% of 300' is 3' not 30'.

Which he knew, and is why he said 10x more distance is used putting.

Putting will remain different and is hard to compare hitting an elevated target and one in the ground. A perfect chip shot in golf the ball would be coming to a stop as it hits the cup, falling in. A perfect chip shot (lets say a 80' putt) either goes in (with risk of going by 10-20' on a forgiving green) or it lands under the basket for a drop in, but never had the chance of going in.

These two are not very comparable (although I agree that with the way courses are designed, putting is easier than it needs to be)
