You inquired: so whats the toboggan like, it looks long, but is it lefty, righty, ballanced, what should i be expecting?
The Toboggan is a power and control driving course. The Toboggan is a temporary course used for major events in Kensington Metropark (Milford, Michigan). It sits in a large piece of land used in the winter as sledding hills and toboggan runs. There are very few flat areas, so most shots are up or down hills and most drives are long and exacting.
It is righty favorable but not unfairly so. More than righty or lefty the Toboggan punishes errant drives with thick and nasty rough. Strong winds are common and it is easy to miss by a little and find yourself in problem areas-if you can find your disc at all.
Strong winds and big hills can be a difficult combination. The holes average more than 400 feet in length so you can't just lay up. There are only a handful of reachable birdies. There are a bunch of holes you pray to have a chance at getting a 3 because you can also blow up on them. It is a course which you would like to play a few times before keeping score.
I am the announcer/games master for the USADGC, so I will see you there.
You should do whatever makes your putts go in. You need to practice in every way you will putt in a round. Not just slow and fast but straddles, uphill, downhill, sidehill, different winds, forehands, turbos, etc.
If speed putting works then great. It probably won't work every day and there is greater risk when you don't think out some dangerous putts but I'd take Ron Russell's putting percentage any day.
