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.
Mailbag: Reducing Jump Putting, USDGC in the Spring? is only available to Ultiworld Subscribers
