I believe the same people will be doing a clinic for the St. Louis Open on Thursday or Friday. That's next week.

Video, fairway drivers, line shaping, distance lines

Do Not! Make the mistake of learning how to throw distance lines and think that itll be applicable to more than 1% of the throws you will ever make in a competetive round, but it would be a nice skill to have when u need it

I am reading folks describe "releasing" the disc, I think this is misleading.

You do NOT release the disc on a distance drive, you accelerate the disc and it rips out of your hand regardless how strongly you try to hold it. That rip out of your hands is the primary factor in imparting spin to the disc, which keeps it from fading out as long as the spin is strong enough, am I wrong in my understanding or how I am describing that?

correct, the disc should rip from your hand and a lot of people release to early because they are simply letting it go. your grip should be at its strongest right before the disc rips from your hand. i see a lot of people short arm their distance throws and not get full extension at the shoulder.

If you feel a burn on your index finger you are not using a power grip.

maybe even contact the guys that make it see if they could/would add subtitles. maybe innova would do this too.

lots of deaf players in my area and would be nice if they had deaf friendly tutorials. Gallaudet
