One thing that has helped me to get better is to visualize the shot in my head.

In your minds eye see the disc in action before you make your shot.It also helps to know exactly what your plastic will do in that situation as it helps to visualize the shot to build confidence.

Yes 9 times out of 10 if you are shanking drives it will be your grip/footwork.

10 times out of 10 it's your mental game.

If you find yourself struggling take a bit of a rest.Sometimes your brain gets lazy and it takes a bit to catch back up with you.

You did not make a fool of yourself, you just ripped your drives to the right. One does not equal the other!

Maybe I'm wrong but it sounds like his shoulders are opening up too early. Maybe focus on slowing that down a tad.

let me give you one big hint: STOP THINKING ABOUT YOUR GRIP SO MUCH!
99% of grip lock is focusing so much on your grip and release that you hold onto that bitch so long and it goes wrong... focus on your grip, then realize it's in your hand let up on your "squeeze" a little and release...
but stop overanalyzing

That's my guess, too. Some sort of timing is off. You could be starting your pull just a smidge too early, too. The grip looks like it needed fixing, anyway, but I doubt it was the source of your aiming problem.

There are some articles about consistency and aiming at DGR that are worth looking into as well.
