This^^^^. You will get to see all kinds of skill levels and ways of throwing you might not realize are possible.

And also, read through this thread. It greatly helped me clean up my game. DX Plastic is your friend at this stage of the game.

I will double down on "play some league rounds.". Many leagues allow you to play individual weeks without requiring you to join for an entire season.

The leopard is like a 4 iron. You can get solid distance with it with practice, but also finesse in a nice accurate shot, or even a little bump and run!

Putting is all personal. Everyone has different styles, everyone is a little different. Only way to get better is to practice. Personally I like having a stack of the same putter. I've got a bag with 8 classic aviars in it I take to the yard and just putt repeatedly with. It's not for everyone though, some people like to practice one putt, then think about what they did on their way to the disc. I would recommend practicing straddle putts and odd lies though. Your gonna find yourself behind, under, and even in an obstruction to the basket, and it comes in handy being able to putt from one knee in odd positions.

Hit the form section, and work on one thing at a time. I've been playing for several years now and still struggle with form a lot. And above all, have fun! It's the oldest game in the world if you think about it, throwing things at other things and trying to hit them, we just use different objects now.
