Drive analysis plz!
I have made a huge effort to clean up my footwork and pivot on my heel. Anything else stand out?

Looks a little rushed starting with your reach back. Slow down and reachback later in your footwork. Also, you have the heaviest toe drag i've ever seen. Can't say for sure, but i'm willing to bet it's stunting your torsoe rotation and follow through. Evidence is at 0:38 and 1:22. You're not powering through the throw, but instead toe dragging and standing straight up. It's keeping your weight from properly shifting forward cuz it's stuck dragging across the ground. :p

maybe experiment with a hop-step to help get your feet lighter.

Keep working on footwork like slowing way down and keeping your weight on the insides of your feet, your balance is all wonky loading up too far back and not transferring weight before you rotate, also not getting elbow forward of shoulder.

You don't scream at your discs enough.

Really though, you start your big movement sideways. When I do that it hinders my hip movement.

I do 5 steps, right (small step), left (small step), Right(turning step), Left (x step), and Right(Big step for drive)

If I do 3 I can't do my turn very well, I also lose a lot of follow through.

yeah that toe drag is kind of a mess. funny though, because it took me the longest time to bring my back leg around at all. I have added 50-75 ft since I have been following through. I am not sure that I drag my foot while actually playing all the time though as I know for sure that on certain holes I come around cleanly and quickly when I know I need to get some extra d. I know for sure that I drag my toe on shorter holes where I need control. I will work on that.

something I never realized is that my left arm is kind of dead when i am following through. I notice that some folks Sort of bring their non throwing arm around and point their elbow(a.j. specifically). I am sure that has a reason.

one thing I have also corrected lately was reaching back with only one arm and not holding on with both hands. I will definately try to slow the reach-back down and explode more off the hit.

I just rewatched the whole thing and actually my first drive seems pretty clean in my follow-through. what do you think?

never mind. that toe drag thing is ridiculous looking . looks like I'm trying to get dog crap off my foot
