The Best Putter in the Modern Era of Pro Disc Golf

You drive for show, but putt for dough. – Bobby Locke

We’ve been blessed with statistics ever since UDisc Live partnered up with the Disc Golf Pro Tour back in 2016. After a thorough research & going through thousands of rows of data, here’s the best putter in modern era pro disc golf. Just for quick clarification:

  1. In this article “modern era” refers to UDisc Live era, ranging from 2016 to 2023.
  2. C1X = Circle 1X = putts between 10ft to 33ft/3m to 10m AKA the bullseye and the edge of circle one.

Best Putter in Pro Disc Golf, period.

Based on the UDisc Live statistics it’s safe to say that the best putter in modern era of pro disc golf is MPO player Andrew Marwede.

Best DGPT Season C1X putting %

“What we’re looking at here is every DGPT season with at least 89% C1X and at least 147 attempts. First graphic highlights which points are Andrew Marwede while the second graphic highlights in blue the seasons that happened in 2023. Note: only 7 of these seasons exceeded 90%. Marwede has 3 of them, no other player has more than one. That leads us to the third figure: C1X% over the last two seasons combined. As you could imagine, it’s not particularly close.”
