What is a putter?

A putter in disc golf is the slowest type of disc one can use. Putters usually range between a 2 and 3 in their speeds. The shape of these discs tend to be rounder with thin and deep rims, giving them a higher profile. This design allows for the disc to fly slower and straighter towards the target when driving. The slower speeds give putters a soft finish, making them stick to the greens more at the end of their flights.

Putters are mostly used when the basket is within 100ft. A putters slow speed is perfect for a player when inside the circle, this is because the disc does not need much power to get it to fly. Therefore giving the player more accuracy when putting out a hole.
