I’d love to see him do it on flat ground in normal conditions. I’ve worked on touch shots with straight putters this year and can get them over 300 on an open shot might can hit 340 with an Atom but 400 is a bold claim.

Agreed, a 300' putter shot isnt all that difficult but 400', cmon man.

300 is darn hard for me, took years to get there. I’ve never seen Dustin throw much over 500 with any disc, so a putter shot that far is a shocking claim.

I've seen several pros throwing putters 400'. Justin Bunnell was the first and I saw him do it in person a year or two after I first started playing, and he did it with a wizard. I was dumbfounded. It absolutely can be done but it's not really anything you'll see them try unless it's just for fun.

If I can throw a Steady 275-300, I can easily see elite throwers being able to outpace that by 100' easily.

We had an extra "distance" event at a tournament once for fun in the 90's, Dave McCormack threw an Aviar because he had helped run the event and he was letting other people win. His throw was over 400' and he almost won anyway.

Never said it couldn't be done nor will I. I just find it hard to believe that he can throw a putter 400'

That's cool, you would know a lot more about it than I. I'd never heard of the guy until BroD started complaining about him.
