No he wasn't. He was saying you should be able to use putters off the tee.

Quote his post and highlight exactly where you think he implied he could throw a putter 500'

This is what he said-

"You should be able to throw putters hard and far, like Simon and GG and KJ and PP, not like some baby."

That implies to me that he throws putters really far just like those pros. Then he posts a video where he doesnt really throw them far, just downhill...

You have an uncanny ability to miss the god-damned point. His video clearly shows a sweet, powerful throw off the tee using a slow mid-range. If he had thrown a Destroyer, it would have blown way past that basket. Do you fail to see how this is a good skill to have?

I do see. Entirely missed the point I was making though. I was saying that at some point one has to go out to a field, or on the course, or somewhere and practice throwing the crap out of drivers. You can ask any pro who throws far how they learned and they will all say they practiced throwing the crap out of drivers. One can go on finessing putters around the course somehow thinking that their form will magically just appear and they will bomb discs 500 feet but the reality is different. To throw far you have to practice throwing far with fast discs.

PP is another pro mentioned and throws the putter about 350' during tournament rounds, based on the video SW shared, I would bet he can match that.

He said you should be able to throw putters far...Then listed examples of people who crush putters 350'+ meanwhile you have fixated on a single 500' shot by Simon and assume that's what he meant?

There is nothing magical about a fast driver. You can absolutely learn to bomb with a putter, and other than relatively trivial grip considerations and an ability to control nose angle, the skills translate to any disc.

I am trying to be systematic in my process of learning one mold at a time because mostly, I care about shot shapes and control. I am pretty sure my 380' Shark tosses will almost immediately translate to 400+ feet with a fairway. Time will tell I guess, but I don't see any evidence for what you are trying to say here.

The fastest way to better distance and control is practice in a field with fast drivers. The top throwing pros all share one thing in common in how they learned- they all became obsessed with throwing drivers far and practiced doing such to absurdity.

Watching them interview pros and they talk about how they went and threw endlessly for distance when they first started learning.

How does throwing your putters as far as you can NOT translate to also throwing every other disc in your bag as far as you can?
