Yes a Disc Golf putt is just like a Basketball shot going into a hoop.
If people are really confused about spit out putts and whether they count or not that really has nothing to do with the baskets. You can putt on a Golf (ball) green and hit the hole and "cup out" the same way. If you throw the disc with enough velocity and hit the chains high you should get a spit out, sorry Dave.
Listening to Dave's interviews is about as taxing as watching Nikko's hissy fits ... and hair.
Disc golf has bigger issues to deal with...
