I messed with this the past few nights. I have a setup with baskets set up 66' apart. Flags are set into the ground from 18' to 48', at 3' intervals (so 33', at center, is the same flag for both baskets). One basket is just a hair downgrade from the other, so by turning around I get a slightly different height target to throw at. Obviously for this game I had to stand at an imagined spot 3' in front of my shortest flag if I ever hit 0/5. Thankfully - so far haven't had to. The neat thing about this is that every 5 putts I can turn around and change up the look/feel of the putt. I'm not putting on the same basket for all 20 sets.

I don't like to mess with phones/apps when I'm putting, so I didn't keep track of the exact numbers. My first set of 100 I made only 76 and was disappointed with the number of times I lost focus and fell to the 21' (2 made) spot - probably 4-5 times out of the 20. After that I let myself lose track of the total number of putts made and focused only on trying to not fall to the 21' putt. I did okay for a while, but slipped up on set 16/20 and fell to that spot. Otherwise the entire second set of 20 I was at the 24' (3 made) spot or higher.

I closed by taking my 5 putters and hitting them all from 48' to get out of the comfort zone, and then returning to 24' to take a solid 25 putts. I was definitely happy with how the 24' putts felt after doing this routine (I made 23/25, with one center spit that was still rising as it hit chains). I felt very comfortable with gauging breeze, feel, and then comfortably throwing each individual putt on the line I imagined.

Fun routine, good to break up the same old games.

I also have a hard time when I putt outside. It takes me awhile to get into the groove of being outside. It's not really wind that makes the difference, since it's the same on calm days.

Now that it's getting nicer here, I want to putt more outside and less in the basement.
I sometimes pull a basket indoor - I can get a 33' putt - but I prefer keeping them outside all year for the exact season you brought up: it just doesn't feel the same. Its wonderful to get in as many massed putts as possible with proper form to groove the muscle memory, but I'm so much better when I'm practicing confidently putting the disc on my line through wind/rain/snow conditions.

I got my 100 putts in today outside. The air must be different. I was struggling at 7 meters.

Atta boy... I missed yesterday so I'm down.. Got my 100 today though. I'll pay it back when I'm not so sore. Grabbed 20 discs got her done quick.. I sure notice a different one in the mix.. My Atom was keeping pace with the plasma Envies, didn't do as well with the Proton Envys always a little low.
