Besides, if we couldn't whine and moan after rounds about the putts we missed, what would we talked about?

What if there is a 100 foot brick wall between you and the basket and you are 25 feet away. You still make the putt? No matter the obstruction, angle of incline, or conditions(basket just melted to slag by lightning)

Tempting, but no. Its like "for the rest of your life, you never bogey a hole, but you never birdie one either"

Score-wise, I would be ecstatic on some courses but terribly disappointed on others. It's all about the rollercoaster ride, man. Even if the outcome is even par.

If I took that deal, every putt for me inside 25' would be a left handed, behind the back throw with my eyes closed, standing on one foot. Just to mess with people.

But I wouldn't take the deal.

I'll take it, and only play tournaments in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas when the wind is 30+ MPH. Those 25 footers are getting all strokes on folks.

Nope. At first glance it was tempting, but I think I'd have to be farther away - change it to "circle" then, if I had the option to switch it on for just certain rounds - namely, highly competitive rounds, maybe the second or third round of a long A tier where my mind is getting tired and my nerves are getting to me. Otherwise I'm in the boat with the folks that like the rush/drama of cashing that 50 footer after missing that 12'.

I'm imagining myself playing such a round. I know I can only make it, and will always make it, if I hit a certain area on the ground (a perfect circle with the basket as the center point). From 100+ feet, this new version of disc golf seems pretty good, just gotta land inside that line, getting close doesn't cut it at all. Then, what happens if I do get close, I'm standing 2' outside that circle, knowing that no matter what I do it will not go in. Do I continue to give it a run every time? Do I try to park the pole? what fun is making a drop in, when I know I have the same odds from 24'? So then do I just toss it 3 feet in front of me? It's much more fun cashing 24'ers all day. Imagine how other people will react, or the commentators (of course I'm on film in my fantasy world here) "That's a bold strategy, let's see if it pays off for him".

If it was inside the circle, I think I'd say yes. I probably should say yes to inside 25', because my putting is brutal, but I'm greedy.

I'd have to move it to 10m, and then all my outside the circle "putts", would be FH approaches, thus getting around the pesky stipulation.
