Don't give up. Putting related concepts still to be tested. Note: doesn't include smaller basket or target zone.

Only if you define the green as the 10-meter circle. And only at top levels---at my duffer level, there can be good separation between those who putt reliably at 25-30', and me.

It scares me a bit. At some point we just need to accept that the challenge of our game is to birdie everything.

The primary question is: Are there compelling reasons to figure out a way to make putting more challenging either specifically for elite pro play, or for all pro divisions, or for all competition players?

Without this directive to really try to find a way coming from the PDGA, manufacturers/sponsors or Tour Directors like Dodge, there's no compelling reason to do the research and testing. Brainstorming and testing ideas within the Game Development Team at minimum become curiosities, or at best, an idea might become an element in a disc golf variant that some like to play similar to night golf or mulligan variant.

I'm all for testing stuff. Just needs to be a C tiers and not during majors.

If the directive is for elite play then the goal should be officially applying it in a Major. But I agree that sufficient testing should be done at lower levels with enough time in advance for the elite players to practice before that Major.

I think wooden posts that knock disc down right next to the basket instead of allowing them to flare OB are the future of our sport. We should test this at every major.
