You've got enough time to keep friends!

In my day we had't walk five miles to the disc golf course, uphill both ways, in snow that were up to our bellies and when we got there dogs ate our discs whenever we threw 'em. An' that were in't summer.

I'd take about 40 feet more distance. That's it.

I voted putting. That was a no brainer. 100% C1 all day!

Apart from that, consistently hitting fairway gaps on wooded holes and parked short flick forehand approaches would be my other wishes.

Distance is nice to have but by no means necessary for me to have fun or to play satisfying disc golf.

It shouldn't be hard to do the first time, but it is.

I'm an Am Masters guy rated in the low 900's. I have all of these except the bomber option. I voted "other" because I don't need 500 feet to compete in my division. If I could hit 350' as consistently and accurately as I hit 250' I would die happy and that would be more than good enough to play well in just about any division.

I used to think I'd need the 350' to be in the mix in MA-40+. Then I entered some c-tiers, my first sanctioned events in 14 years. In all five rounds I played (one was a one-round flex start, love that format!!), we shot from the short tees. So I don't need big youthful distance. Another 50 feet would be great, though. I'm going to attempt to work on that some more next spring.

A 350'+ FH would be neat to have.
