The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I travel fairly frequently, and I end up spending a decent
amount of waking hours in a hotel room. Even when I'm in places that
have courses near enough to get in a quick round, I usually just scurry
around the course, note it's highlights despite the fact that it's no
DeLaveaga, then split. When I'm on the road, I rarely get in any putting
practice at all.

So one time I pulled out my putters in the hotel room, wedged myself in one corner, and aimed for a reading chair
in the opposite corner. It worked- sort of. Trouble was, the discs would
often bounce off the chair and loudly smack the wall, Worse, after a
couple beers they would sometimes miss the chair altogether and slam the
wall like the fist of an unrequited lover. Inevitably someone at the front
desk would then call and ask what the hell was going on in my room. I
needed a better mousetrap.

Hehe, I'm doing the same thing at my apartment. Only I've put a bean bag in about basket height. The disc stops flat when it hits on the center, and if it goes too short I've put a pillow underneath. If I aim to far to the left or right, then the inevitable racket is sure to follow :)

And just as godiscn, I have also noticed a big improvement in my putting game just by practising on a bean bag for a few minutes a day.

I putt into a chair from close range, making missing the target nearly impossible. I was surprised how much difference it made when I was back on the course
