Jump putting form problems

I looked through the old jump putting threads and I couldn't find and answer.

Everytime I try jump putt my disc comes out wobbley and goes 20ft to the right. If you that was the only thing you seen me do you would think I'm retarded. It is awful.

Can anyone show me a video of proper jump putting form?

Right now I'm just kinda doing the will hyzer putting for longer putts

Thanks. For any help

I jump putt from about 70-35ft. I would say that I am one of the better jump putters around my area. Try this.... make sure that you are jumping forward.... not just up. There is a sweet spot somewhere right before you start moving forward that you should start moving your arm forward. Make sure that you are aiming right at the basket.... maybe a little right to compensate for fade. I normally put my disc on an any and aim directly at the basket instead.

Oh also.... this has been brought up before... make sure that you are pinching with your thumb and middle finger. That is what stopped my wobble.

Maybe this video will help. Really revolutionized my game.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.


But really it's all about your stand still putting. If you hyzer, anny or what ever putt.

It's funny cause the disc comes out of his hand better than mine does

Another suggestion is to make sure you're releasing the disc before your arm straightens. On longer putts I'll sometimes try to use too much arm, instead of momentum from my legs; my arm straightens, wrist snaps, and disc goes right.

jump putting at 35' is waaaaaaaaaay too close. you should need only a minimal weight shift to get the needed power at that distance.
