putting and midrange practice is waaaaayyy more important... and more fun... and less likely to throw your arm out.
this year i started a midrange practice routine where i would empty out most of my drivers and replace with doubles/triples of my midrange or fairway drivers... i would go to my nearest local course and after throwing a drive (you know, for funsies), would pick and choose a spot for upshots, throwing 2-3 discs to the basket. i would try to choose a shot that offered 2-3 routes to the basket so that i could have the opportunity to practice a hyzer, anhyzer or straight on approach all from the same spot to the same target.
inadvertently this practice technique proved very effective in an aspect of game in which i was felt that i was fairly weak: believing in and trusting my shot selection during a tournament. i was finding that when in a tournament on an unfamiliar course i was feeling shaky about my shot selection... i wasn't trusting my own judgement or my own discs and therefore was unable to throw with the confidence i needed to properly execute and get to the basket... after starting this midrange practice routine i no longer have this issue during tournaments...
... buuuuut, i still don't really throw my drives all that far...
