Without knowing the distribution of ranges from which putts are attempted (and the success rates at each distance), we cannot know whether we are above or below that ideal.

I could just as easily (and nonsensically) say that almost 90% of putts are missed from 100 feet, so any number of misses lower than 90% would be better, therefore we need larger baskets.
Depends what a putt is? I could classify inside 33 feet as a putt. Anything outside that is a throw/jump putt. What is the difference really between a jump putt and throw? Not much.

If you go with that then the top pro's are over 90% of all putts made. By your criteria that is way too much.

A putt is when if the disc didn't go in the basket, it was a failure.

So 500 feet? I could argue a true putt is 33 feet or less. You cannot at that point jump putt and extend beyond your lie.

Since there isn't even a prototype yet, I would guess it wouldn't go too swimmingly. perhaps you would ask them instead, if once a prototype is ready would they be willing to try it out for a while. I am sure some of courses have multiple pin positions so you could install and not have much of an effect on players who only want to play regular chains.

Or approaching a Parks Department, telling them that you're going to take the chains off of their baskets because putting is too easy.

Hilarious.

Wait, didn't you suggest just taking the chains off of existing baskets?

Now you're talking about prototypes?

You guys should keep notes.

This thread is so filled with outrageous contradictions, it is pathetic. Every single statement made has a contradiction a few pages later. I don't think he is capable of even understanding the discussion. I think that is why he is so closed minded. For a while I thought old man was just a troll. I now think he is not a disc golfer at all, and is sick. I mean an honest mental illness.

Great quote, sure, but you're so far off. Funny you didn't respond to my overstable/understable quote in a separate thread after denying anything but the word "stable" should be used.

Socrates liked children by the way.
