Sometimes I play a super aggressive anhyzer run that cut-rolls in that situation. Those are fun. Everybody around me is super nervous. They're at least as consistently tap-ins as high floaty runs.

In golf, one has rim outs. That is the equivalent of chain outs and can do just as much damage to one's score, if not more.

I can attest to that.

Can we just use a better qualifying metric other than diameter of disc and ball?

Like, weight?

This is only comparing the x axis! Disc golf putts have to deal with the y axis, too. And, wind. This is a flawed analysis.

4% of Nevada's entire water use was for golf courses in 2009. I imagine that % has dropped with the price of water going up in the Colorado basin.

As for me, I'm always putting on the green. -

Real golf putts also have to deal with green contours, the length and type of grass on the green, the level of moisture on that grass, how well and if other golfers have repaired their divots and on and on. Any comparison is flawed.

Also, it is important to know what type of putter purchase. Individuals have different putting strokes, so it is important to purchase a putter that fits that style of putting (and also take how tall or short a player is into account).

There are mallet putters, blade putters, and two ball putters just to name a few. Do they want a face balanced putter or a toe balanced putter? Plus, there are a 1000 different putter grips out there as well.

There are greens that will have tricky hole locations. If someone misses on the wrong side of the green, and long on a lot of them, that may require a putt through the green's apron.

Time is a kind of cost that plays a big role too. I've enjoyed a few casual rounds of golf at the noob level, but it eats up most of a day, just for 18 holes. It's not the 1950s anymore and most people with kids have to take off work or negotiate with a spouse (who is likely also in the workforce) to take this kind of time. There's no way I could ever afford to make enough time available to get good at golf. Disc golf has a huge advantage here...it's much easier to carve out enough time for a casual round, even for working parents. And in certain circumstances, kids can accompany.

I was about to type that same thing!!!

Anytime someone mentions any axis, my mind automatically goes to "x,y,z" sometimes including a,b,c and u,v,w.....
