Learn to throw from local experts.

I wanted to learn to throw my putter for extra D. I would go out to the course with a handful of putters and play a round with em. That would give me an oppurtunity to work on all types of shots. After doing this a few times here and there it improved my game tremendously. The putter can save you in many instances.

It also helps to throw the right putter for distance. Of course, any can be used, but most become unreliable after moderate driving use. I suggest one of these, but your results may differ:

KC Aviar
Wizard
Pro D

In my experiances, these are really the only worth using. Ive listened to both sides of the Rhyno battle, but Rhynos suck. Ive gotten alot better at any type of shot regarding a putter SINCE I dumped the Rhyno. A KC will keep the same stability as a Rhyno in the wind. I honestly believe the DX Aviar is an excellent short range approach disc, for about a week, but get tricky after some use due to them being more straight/stable.

For some good not-at-home practice, I go to Prospect and throw from 8s Tee to 4s Basket. Then from 4s Basket to 5s Teesign. From 5s Tee to 3s Basket, then I play hole 4. And Repeat....

First Run Pro Aviar. I have been throwing the same one for over 3 years. It has some dings it, but it still fly's amazing. For long anhyzer's the Dx Aviar is the way to go. I got a Photon Glow Challenger recently and it feels and flys great. I struggle with changing my putter to Discraft though :lol:

actually it was really weird when i was in ottumwa last year on my state disc trip i found 2 in the walmart there at a nice reduced price of 7.99 a piece...so my first runs look like they are (almost) new.

After not being able to throw putters or midranges off the tee for the two years I've been seriously playing, I discovered I was throwing with all heave and almost no spin on the disc, and so I have for the last few weeks just been practicing pretty much exclusively throwing Wizards back and forth, crosswinds, headwinds, whatever, just fighting to keep the disc stable with the proper amount of spin applied to it.

I can't believe it took me this long to figure that out, but better late than never. I haven't touched a driver in a few weeks but I imagine my drivers will eventually fly better and more consistent as a result of concentrated practice teeing off with putters.

Had the same problem with midranges, too, all except the most overstable of them.

I have a Roc and a Buzz, but I think I need either a different mid-range or the ability to use a putter better. Opinions?

I just don't seem to be able to get real close on my second shot.

Playing catch is the way to learning a great fan grip.

thats going to take some time, max, but the efforts by many to play w/ just a putter - give it a try - should increase the likelihood you'll get a lot better w/ your approaches.
