Left shoulder/elbow and getting hip turn instead is slightly improved. Left foot behind step is still past body CoM. I realize I need to keep working on that. But I felt something new that I want...

Need to see video to see what kind of jamming you're doing. Maybe too much weight coming through over your instep so your foot doesn't release with your body in balance? Like feeling like your...

Yeah that's unfortunate that you do LHBH/RHFH, but it's better than no FH shot. It'll still give you options if you're stuck in the woods without the ability to do a full swing. As well sometimes...

I think having a little bit more athletic squat with a little bit more torso tilt so you are over the toes can help you, so that your butt/lower body can counterweight your upper body. In these...

Looks to me like you are throwing with your forearm/elbow too early, rather than letting your body/hips leverage the whole arm through the shoulder. Your forearm angle looks a bit odd to me after...

Backswing is super important, if you don't have it happen at the right time and in control, in leverage, your forward swing is happening just because or just when you tell it to happen. Rather than...

A crucial thing I'm seeing in your list, is at step 3 the backswing shouldn't be ending as plant toes touch down. It should be swinging back toward its apex, but let your backswing have its own...

The problem is as you are turning back and trying to get your butt closer to the plant leg, you are locking out your rear leg. I think you may be putting pressure into the left heel?

Then in this...

Definitely a change/improvement. The rear leg is however, extending as you say. Rather than being leveraged into and also pushing you closer to the target. I realize I didn't explain the exact...

You're missing the lateral movement toward the target as you turn back away. This is an improvement but you're rotating in the same location in space rather than moving closer to the plant...

Cool, that's an improvement and I think I know what's going on. You are transitioning backswing to forward swing at the same tempo as if you were on flat ground. This elevated rear foot position is...

Back is super hunched, when you land you'd just fold over chest to front knee. I'm guessing if camera was behind teepad perspective, your butt would be behind your plant heel and chest would be over...

Note how in those pics SW showed, he is one the leading leg for each movement. 100% on left leg for the backswing, then 100% right leg for the forward swing. You are on both feet and balanced...

This is a simple way I can visualize on those photos. Keep in mind you want to be centered over the plant, not just the front shoulder. Also in Simon's picture since there's so much tilt I'm trying...

Also, you are kind of pushing the disc at the target with your shoulder and forearm. Loosen up and feel the sling.
