I do that when it's windy. I'm waiting for a lull.

Normally, I just walk up and toss but if it's really windy I'll stand motionless and wait for it to pass.

This is my style, it works great for me. Who cares what it looks like?
It holds a purpose similar to Holly's for me. When I step up initially I use it as a physical aiming mechanism - I do it for just about every throw. I don't necessarily plan on releasing it there, but in putting the disc out on a certain plane relative to where I intend to line my body up, I'm consistently putting myself in a position where I can step directly back along the intended line of my run-up. My shoulders are positioned the same way every time, my feet are positioned the same way every time. At its most basic: it is my starting point.

It really has nothing to do with actually aiming the disc or setting up my wrist and hand angles, though I sometimes do that to some extent but more for stretching the hand and wrist than anything. It just has to do with a consistent physical setup every time up on the teepad.

for me it gets me in the zone. Once i do this i start to visualize the line I need to hit and my focus sharpens. Then once I go back and get ready to throw I know i can hit the line(or come close) I just visualized.

I do this with putting too.Then I go into my routine and putt.
