Make sure on your standing still throws that you are reaching back and looking back far enough to get a full throw. This will definitely add distance if you're not doing this yet. USE DRIVERS. Get to know 'em. Then, add one step into the throw and again reach back far enough. Then do an X-step and step forward and throw, then use three steps. I use 4 steps and end up using about 12-14 feet because my last two steps are progressively faster and longer. the X-step allows you to reach back and look back to get maximum whip action in your arm. It's hard to replicate that on a standing still throw as I assume you are looking at your target and not reaching back far enough. Reach back and pull through like you're starting a lawnmower.

To be honest I don't like doing field practice with just putters or mids and not drivers. I like to mix it up, warm up with the mids and putters and then end the session with drivers. Focusing solely on midranges seems to make my driving game suffer a bit, kind of the same way practicing my putting only makes my driving get rusty and vice versa. Gotta go for the all around game.
