Mailbag: Reducing Jump Putting, USDGC in the Spring?

Welcome to Ultiworld Disc Golf’s mailbag!

The mailbag is for subscribers only, which helps keep me committed to writing it every week. It will reward subscribers with a weekly column they can count on. And it will allow us to offer a free one-month Mini subscription — which includes access to our Discord server, bonus Upshot podcast segments, exclusive articles, the Cash Line newsletter, and more — for the best question, email, or comment we get and publish in the Mailbag. If you’re already a subscriber, you get a free extra month (or a discount). If you’re not, you can come in and check out the benefits.

You can email me anytime at [email protected] with questions, comments, ideas — whatever you’ve got.

Q: I know you’re in the pro basket change category, but I think a MUCH easier change would lower the percentage of overall putting by 10%.

Expand Circle 1 from 33 to 40 feet for National Tour/DGPT/“Grand Slam” events. Watching a lot of pros make more from 34-40 with a step/jump putt over missing a putt from 33-29 seems like a 10% bump (anecdotally, for what it’s worth). This is also a cost efficient change for a sport that is growing.
