There are very few situations where I'd throw a driver at a standstill, so I honestly couldn't tell you.

You look like a total noob. Until your effortless-looking standstill is under the basket.
It's interesting that there is that much of a preconceived notion about the standstill shot.. We are in our own happy bubble out here out of 30 regular players I'm one of the few on DGCR.. Our course is mostly short, rocky and poor terrain. With the rain and dirt tee pads run ups don't happen. So I'm coming from the other end where I have built my shot from a standstill half step whatever and am trying to learn the run up better. One of the old guys throws 375 without a run up quite easily.

I'm terrible at fairway run-ups (too much thinking about hitting my spot), so I tend to throw standstills more than the average bear. I get about 400 on tee pad distance shots, and maybe 350ish on standstills.

It really is an invaluable skill.

I don't know, wouldn't even want to try and put a number on it, but I'm quite sure that my distance lost from going to standstill is much less using my Swedish technique vs the conventional bent-elbow technique. Even when I do a run-up in Swedish, I usually get better results if it's just a one-step or Feldy hop so I wouldn't be surprised if I don't lose any distance in a standstill.

I was hoping people would discuss the mechanics of throwing from a standstill and how to maximize or optimize the throw. I'm ok with where I am now but who knows if I keep working on it.

Typically if I cant run up backhand I can throw a standstill flick XD

Shows the flaws in my backhand. I am working on the standstill backhand.

...Yeah same for me...if i really don't trust a teepad then it pushes me very far into the FH mindset unless the hole is absolutely not shaped for it. I just feel like if I slip on a FH I'll shank the shot but won't get hurt, if I slip on a BH it feels more scary.

Need to go back and search some of the threads kicked off about jump putts and foot faults where someone brings up stand and deliver rules everywhere but teepads. The forum almost breaks from the rage and tears as if its impossible to throw over 200' from a standstill. Things like "uh... good luck shooting anything below a 6 on such and such course's 800'er"

I like to try and go to all stand still rounds for a while. It gets me into a much better place on a run-up... which my run-up is more just a very slow couple Steps Xstep.
