if you get a good player with sound stroke, and just tell him to aim 3 ft inside both lines...

the center of the landing pattern will not be that spot 3ft inside both lines, it will be well short of that.
it only makes sense, because long/wide balls immediately cost a point... short balls don't (at least not yet)
Actually I did nearly exactly this and the experience did not match your
expectations. This is part of what led to developing this target system.
I know it was a long thread, but you seemed to have missed some very
important parts to the system. The targets are a reference more than a target
to try and actually hit.
