Why no putts outside 30'? there should be a few 40 and 50'ers in there.

And, why no putts inside 20'? You need to practice your 12'ers too.
I think the distances are too redundant...

And, there seems to be some complication as to having to put an extra putt to determine your real score, since you just putted 5 putts. Why not just keep a total putts made score?
Call it "Ninety"... I know, it's not as catchy as "Forty-Two".

I set the game up based on myself and what I needed to work on. Feel free to edit the distances to suit you. As far as the score, adding up the putts made is what PP360 does. This is not that....I wanted a game where you were playing a scorecard with Par 3, 4, 5's.

The "extra putt" is for your score...the distance you putt for your actual score is based on how many you made from the longer distances.

I just made a game that was NOT perfect putt 360.

There has to be a better game that you can play around the practice basket.

Sure there is. Texas Hold'Em comes to mind. Or perhaps spin the bottle. But my normal playing group are all guys so that would suck. For this reason, I play "Forty-Two".

Thumbs up

Hey, I just tried this game out and while I did pretty poorly imo for my first time I really like it and hope to use it as part of my regular putting regimen. As one of those players only a few strokes away from playing regular 1000 rated golf I hope this will be helpful. Thumbs up!

PS. First round was a 78 if I added it right and maybe I will have to get in on the next "42" tournament.

Glad you enjoyed the game. You will have to play in one of our "42" tournaments sometime.
