Land the Disc
Keeping your eye on the target without overshooting it
Standing 100 feet away from the basket, your drive (albeit not where you had hoped it'd be) has left you with an easy approach shot that should set you up for your par. Eyeing up the basket, you fire a beautiful shot that heads straight for the chains! Just two feet off the mark, you sail right by and end up 50 feet past the basket. Your easy three has most likely just become a four, or a five!
An easy way to avoid this scenario is to change your focus while making that crucial approach shot. Zoning in on the target and concentrating on hitting it, doesn’t take missing it into account. A solid approach is a shot that will put you in high percentage putting range. Focus on an area around the basket that would put you in comfortable putting range and try to land the disc in that space. This approach style can also let you choose where you want to putt from – avoid bushes, putt downhill, downwind etc. As your putting improves, you can increase the size of your landing zone – allowing you to play with controlled aggression.
By concentrating on your disc’s entire flight, you will leave yourself with way less work. And hey, the law of averages is such that you will hit just as many from that distance taking that approach as you will going for it every time.
