I'm having trouble outside 40ft.  I use 175g putters.  Do any of you find an understable putter helpful or perhaps a lighter one for jumps?  Love my Wizards but may opt out for putters with more range/glide.  Any thoughts?

use more legs to get your extra distance
Try a bit lighter Putter say 170 or so.

  Try a less stable or older putter (worked-in). I use a newer 9 time KC aviar for anything inside 40 ft.  I go to a 9 time KC that has less bead (it's more like a hard aviar putt & approach) for anything longer or low ceiling putts. A lot of top pros use this strategy.  Avery Jenkins and Dave Feldberg are 2 who do this.  Avery does the same thing I do.. where as Dave goes from his 10 time KC aviar to a putt and approach aviar.

  Also, play more of a hyzer if U can for the shot (if U have a tight line U obviously can't play a hyzer). This will keep U closer to the basket if U miss.. and your come-back putt won't be as long.

  As Brandon stated above^ ... use more legs the further out U are. 


Most of it is technique.. just like everything else in Disc Golf.  But, the proper disc in your hand helps a lot too.

I was putting with a Birdie until the first round @ Wailoa. Straight to an Aviar!


Great!  Thanks for the help everyone!
One day I accidentally jumped a little when I tossed a putt.

Ever since then I have been making more putts.
just keep practicing every day and work up to it
