I haven't found one of those cards yet.
You mentioned ball golf, stats from ball golf that you could somehow fit into disc would be: fairways hit, greens in regulation, putts per round.
Applied to disc golf you could track:
Fairways hit: did you hit the gap you wanted and do you have a reasonably unobstructed second shot?
GIR: do you have a par (or better) putt from inside the circle?
Putts per round: obvious stat, the less the better.
Skip keeping overall score, have a notebook, or even a scrap of paper, just tally fairways hit, GIR, and putts. Play three rounds at your home course then correlate the missed fairways and greens with the types of shots required to make those shots. Now you have field practice ideas that will directly affect your on course outcome. It could be there is a huge mix which means you just need practice on consistency and your mental game. It could be you are struggling with a particular type of shot and working on that will greatly help your score.
Once the baskets get put back in at my home course I am going to try this out.
