UDisc Live announced it will be adding a new statistic to its professional disc golf offering. Or rather, dropping some measurements to make an important stat more accurate.
The introduction of C1X Putting eliminates tap-ins from counting toward a player’s Circle 1 putting percentage. Going forward, putts from inside 3.3 meters (10 feet) will be excluded to “provide a clearer picture of putting skill.”
C1 putting will no longer be showed in stats and will be entirely replaced by C1X. The UDisc team retroactively applied C1X to 2018 stats as the 0-10 feet data was already being collected.
Also new for 2019 are player tour maps and full season schedules and results. UDisc Live stats will first be available at next week’s Las Vegas Challenge PDGA National Tour event.
