I felt an improved weight shift today by delaying everything. It feels like I wait for catching my weight to bring the disc forward to my core or right hip, then my hips can counterweight my body...

Give it a try and post it too. I think it's a great one for feeling to have your weight settle before swinging, and you also don't have that side to side momentum to make you over rotate vs....

With those distances I suspect you're getting a pretty snappy/spin type release instead of a leveraged velocity one. Because throwing 160' with a putter is a very high % of your max distance you are...

I've noticed McBeth on short shots a lot of times keep a very bent knee and kind of keep turning through the shot, rather than extending the plant leg to clear the hips and anchor himself as in his...

For me anything more than a slower hopping X-step actually hurts my throw because I don't have perfect balance and tempo. Conrad on the other hand has it dialed in.

Someone said that Conrad used...

Oh gotcha, I misunderstood the situation.

There's certain holes I just play for the 3 and move on, or think of it as a super bonus to get the 2. A bogey on one of those feels really unnecessary...

I agree with the for fun rounds, go for it...if it really matters on score then think about how you feel on that shot.

But overall I would really evaluate why you only birdie 14%. And if you miss...

Looks to me like your backswing is pulling your chest down and into your rear hip. Like you are collapsing down into the backswing rather than rising up. Then from this loaded down position you're...

Your swing at 1:06 is the best one. You commit to getting over the front leg, on top of it. The rear leg counterweights you to the right, rather than coming with you to the left. You are at a nice...

Yeah I'd watch that FH video from SW that RFrance posted. Don't keep doing what gives you pain. Sling THROUGH the shot/hit point, don't whip/snap AT the target...that feel tends to really get your...

Yeah that's helping. Turn the hips back more than the shoulders though...use the hips/pelvis to turn your upper body back and give yourself even more room. Should feel like you can move your left...

It clears the hips so your butt can counterweight the torso. It's also harder to feel with the arm/disc weight compared to a sledgehammer.

You can see the front leg extension from many pro's in...

Yeah this has only been a part of my throw for the last month or so, but it's game changing and eye opening. It's actually easier to aim and I have far less poor releases this way, which is not what...

Yes, and only worry about disc alignment AT the hit position.

Just like in golf you think about the club face contacting the ball, but you don't care about where the club head is facing at the top...

You're turning your body too backward through the X-step...your initial right foot step is facing away from the target so you're essentially walking backward with neutral hips. This makes it very...

No way. He puts all his body through the shot but waits for the arm forward/launch position to unload the disc.

You can see his fundamental form much easier in this powered down shot.

Usually those are from opening the chest/torso too early before using the arm...like being a bit to eager to throw. Then when the arm swings to the same relative release point to where your torso is...

Yeah if you go Verdict - Teebird - PD then you know the flights. And combine that with knowing how the Truth works, you'd learn that disc real fast.

It's not truly OS though, it's like a Teebird....
