The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Ive played doubles plenty of times, but never played 'worse shot' . Does the other team get to decide which shot we have to take?
and if so.. if my partner is somewhat new would I be better off letting him take the first shot to see if I could somehow make my shot appear worse than his ( maybe by being shorter ) but in a more preferable position? ( Ive played one round with him and while i may be assuming since he is relatively new, I know I am going to outdrive him 99% of the time )
Any other strategy we should be using ?
Not a fan of Worst Shot in comparison to Tough Shot which I developed in 1990. We were hosting the 1990 Senior Overalls. I figured hosting an unofficial Tough Shot doubles round would be a good way for the visiting players to learn the disc golf course and discover where they didn't want to land once the real singles event got underway.
The only strategy I can see for the weaker partner is to throw lower power shots more likely to land in play. It sucks in Worst Shot, but in Tough Shot the better partner can usually go for the pin throwing second unless OB is a factor.
