Try throwing as many x-step drives you can off the tee in one minute. We do it occasionally at dubs for laughs. First one flies nice... Fifth one, not so much. #'s 15 to 20, that's when the hilarity sets in.

Record 2) Longest flying disc target throw = 152 Ft.

For this Record you need to throw it into a BasketBall Hoop. 152 Ft is far for a small target,
I made one of these farther than this but, I had no witnesses and I used a mini Wizard.

No. Keep it clean. No silly ‘records’. No targets or throws/holes in a limited time. Keep those for facegram

Time aloft and max distance with a disc that is sanctioned. That is it. Ultimate and DiscGolf as separate entries (likely time aloft would be a disc sanctioned by both and have one holder for both).

We have a similar game. At Buckhorn DGC the baskets are such that a disc that lands on top will fall through into the basket. So on putts outside of 15' we throw 2 discs. One has to go in the traditional way, the other through the top. Both shots have to be different and both discs must be in the air at the same time. So you can loft one at the top but then have to drill one at the chains (most common). There are some low ceilings so I have had to forehand/ backhand occasionally which i find very difficult.

One shot or the other is usually decent but the other is generally pretty bad. I usually toss the first and forget it and watch the second. Sometimes though you release that first one and it looks so nice you almost forget to get the other off before the first one lands, so you rush your second shot and hilarity ensues.

Maybe someone could attempt a world record of most putts made from 10 meters, throwing between their legs while solving a Rubik's Cube with their free hand. Go!

We used to have access to a gym during the winter months in WI.

I made plenty more-than-full court shots into the hoop, but that's only about 100 or so feet.

If that's what they want to do, sure.

For me personally, a touring pro holding such records falls on the spectrum somewhere beteen, "mildly cool," and "couldn't care less."
