BH anhyzer
FH aka flick
FH hyzer
FH anhyzer
BH roller (turnover or cut)
FH roller (turnover or cut)
Tomahawk aka hammer aka tommy
Thumber
Pancake
Grenade - BH upside down disc spike hyzer
dads throw aka chicken wing (BH that starts behind back of throwing arm)
Overhand wrist flick aka chicken wing (more proper chicken wing I believe)
Scooby (new school) - upside down disc slides on ground, thrown BH or FH
Scooby (old school) - a roller shot, BH vertical from close inside chest
The David Feldberg throw to replace a tommy he doesn't have. Name???

if you're including putts - turbo, i think there's two variations but i don't know if they have a 'name' - the turbo where you spin the disc, and the turbo where you flip it end over end.

Air bounce! When you throw a disc nose up but with downward force so that it "bounces" (at least I think that's how you do it).

I believe that's more of a frisbee trick shot then an actual disc golf shot... But I could be wrong

People do it in Disc Golf with lids. It's good if you need to go under something then rise and other odd situations. I've never used it though.

I use an air bounce for many of my approach shots.

F if I know how to spell the Feldberg throw that you reference, but I'll give it a shot: Skamahawk

I throw a Thumber roller or as an old timer called it "a reverse thumb roller". Basically does the same thing as a backhand roller but thrown over your head with a thumber grip. I like it better than the backhand roller because you can see your target through the whole shot.

Flick roller - exact same as a thumber roller, but with a FH grip. Useful for emergency shots where there's no air space to throw.
