The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I'm 9 meters out and I choose a link and aim for it. Hah! I always choose the wrong link!

I'm a leftie so I usually choose a link about 3 inches left of center about middle height. My putting style is up down, that is to say I don't cross body putt. In general my missed putts are "usually" high or low and occasionally gacked to the right or left. But when I get nerve wracked I'm missing right or left a lot.

Now I accept that missing high or low is misjudging my power distance ratio and that's due to not practicing enough. I also admit that I am only throwing 174g beaten in Classic Rocs. Their breaking tendency at the end has killed too many nice runs. I used to love the old Zephyrs, they stayed flat and true, but I ended up with a lot of blow bys and they couldn't stay true in any wind.

Speaking of wind, Oahu has high winds too and trying to judge putts or approaches here boarders on rocket science with some quantum theory throw in to boot.

We'll its Friday and after work I'm taking my Traveler out to the park and get some practice in with my identical 4 Rocs. I enjoyed the Mark Ellis Putting Clinic on YouTube. Now I just need to convince my fiancé to putt with a Roc so we can do throw and catch practices.

throw and catch practices definitely helped my putting game, me and my buddy both putt with steady ed gumbputters and between the two of us we have seven or eight and we do the throw and catch, using each others bellys as the target, although my buddy complains that his target is not very realistic since he says its muuuch larger than the baskets he used to putting into, ha ha mr funny guy

they say..."putt through it, not to it..." a piece of advice I try to follow. More practice will always help and, yeah, putt w/ putters; they'll stay in the air longer than those rocs.

Stop trying to "hit" the chains, and start thinking about "landing" in the basket? Just a thought. Personally, I don't focus on one link ... never worked for me. I don't throw the putter hard into the chains, and I think of the chains as a "net" to slow my disc down and land it in the basket.
