This may not be your problem, but I used do do the exact same thing. When I figured out what was going wrong, it was like Christmas morning. When I was doing a full faster runup, I was starting the pullthrough (and shoulder rotation) too soon. That shoulder rotation was translating down to my hips and legs, causing my right foot to rotate off line before it planted down. So instead of my plant foot landing in line with my target, it was landing off to the right about 10-30 degrees. Where was my disc going? You guessed it, 10-30 degrees right, exactly following the path of my plant foot (not the toes, but the whole foot itself). I made sure to not rotate so early, and pull through only once my plant foot was down. Most of my shots go generally straight now. Generally.
