Hi Jason, I'll give it a shot. I've taught ball golf for over 10 years. 2 months into disc golf, have gotten a buzzz to go from 150 feet to about 270 feet.

So here's what worked for me:

Don't step on the gas too early. Your weight needs to shift into (not over) the forward leg. The forward leg needs to stablize the powerful drive from the hips and core. This takes more time than you think. Maintain spine angle (or the athletic position) and let it rip. Don't spin out or turn past the hit.

Hope this helps. It's difficult to give advice without seeing your swing but this worked for me.

If this doesn't help, work on the fundamentals. Believe it or not, most problems are solved in the grip and posture (spine angle), but everyone wants to work on coil and release.

Good luck
