Default What u like better tap in birds or sinking that long bird putt?

personally im a tap in fan i just love walking 100 yards+ and then just lay that sucker in the basket, i think i enjoy the walk up there the most no worring about putting no need for disc selection just haul that chip (on your shoulder) up there and eat it.

From outward apperance it probally looks like i like hitting the bird putt more(fist pump loud yessss) and the lay-up walk looks just like im going to my car no celebration at all , but look closely and notice the sh** eating grin .

i made a sick putt today, easily 60-70 feet around one tree and splitting 2 more and it was exciting and all but i would much rather have a easy simple put cause i make those waaaaaay more often lol

I'm of the firm opinion that you make birdies with your drive, not your putt. Going for it on long birdie putts is a good way to turn an easy par into a bogey.

After my drive, I have a pretty good idea if I'm playing the hole for birdie or par (or occasionally, if I hit that tree right in front of me and am now behind it, bogey.) It takes a lot of pressure off to know that this 60 foot throw around a tree and between two more really only needs to be within 15 or 20 feet of the basket. I can just concentrate on missing the first tree.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still aiming for it to go in, but my priority is more on missing close than actually nailing those.

But if I can get that drive within 30-35 feet of the basket, you better believe I'm going at it hard for that birdie, no matter the river behind it.

So I guess put me in the camp of those who like drop in birds. A drop in bird means you did everything right. A long putt for bird means you screwed something up and had to scramble.

To tell you the truth I'm fine with either.

I like the beautiful drives and tap-in putts. FAR less stressful.

I prefer the exploding birdies, personally. Nothing beats the sight of a hot pink 170 Pro Destroyer turn a rogue sparrow into a puff of feathers, Randy Johnson style. Very classic.

As long as I am getting a birdie I am loving it. If I had to choose I think it would be the tap in kind because I know my drive was right on target and maybe just maybe someday that will mean an ACE.
