Putting within the 10 meter circle, the C2 is ~ 40% already on even a good day crappy is even 30%--35% and ~50% on a great day. The 10 meter circle anything under~23--25 feet is about the worst putting ever from players that needs work from ~14-15 feet to ~23--25 feet.

The Other choice is my second choice and that is to throw forehand but seeing James Conrad throw predominantly backhand has made me confident to throw only backhand.

Great putter would be my choice.

I'd even settle for decent.

I'd like to be a better putter, but for me scrambling is the most fun so I chose that.

I voted for no change. I'd love to have different skills, but really haven't put in the work to get better than I am and I'm ok with where I am. Sounds weird, but that was what I really felt.

I know that putting is the correct answer...but I just couldn't keep myself from choosing long bomber.

Agree with this. It’s funny, I see post from people who say “this style of putt lets me hit most of my 25 footers and in, but I have trouble outside the circle.” So they want to change their style. Pisses me off lol. I would love to hit most of my 25 footers.

Just like throwing distance, I’m thinking a lot of people like to think of the best outcome and call that the norm.

I’m guilty of being overly optimistic about my skills/capabilities at times.

The amount of times I missed an eagle/birdie because of a stupid putt is too damn high.

100% C1? Yes please.

The whole putting thing is the obvious choice but since my forehand is pretty much crap I think having Eagle’s forehand would probably be pretty cool.

I can honestly say the skill that would increase my DG enjoyment the most would be... being able to consistently hit my line and land in the right spot... and never, ever, spend time searching for discs.

I can live with my noodle arm.
I can live with my streaky putting.

But staying outta the weeds and always playing from the short grass...



:sigh:
