Need help with drives

When I'm driving off the tee I usually release with anhyzer and it flips up and just rides that line 40 or 50 ft away from where I want and I never used to do that I am a beginner I shoot rhbh about 300-320 average drive I started watching technique videos and ever since I have been sucking any tips?


P.s. I may have worded that wrong when I let go it pull right then just keeps going away from where I am aiming

Not entirely sure from the wording, but it sounds like you're rolling your wrist over. If the drives are turning over and going way right or diving into the ground, that's probably it. When you drive, concentrate on not turning your palm toward the sky on releasing the disc. Your hand will be oriented as if you're about to shake someone's hand. Sometimes, leaning back too much can also lead to rolling the wrist.

Total new guy myself and have been working a lot on form myself. I can't drive as far as you, so take what I say with a grain of salt. What knettles said about leaning back is something I have to battle all the time. If I start to pull up early or lean back as I'm throwing, which happens sometimes when I really try to power into it, what I end up with is a throw on an anhyzer that gets pretty high, stays to the right and bombs out. I throw RHBH as well.

If you can try and clear up whats happening. The wording is a bit difficult to read.

My other thought is that you may be using an understable disc, and if you've been fixing your technique watching videos, the disc may just be acting as intended and not what your used to. What disc are you using?
