Afternoon,

RC I hear what you are saying about 1+1+1...etc. I know at the end of the day, for all of this to work, it has to be fluid/smooth and balanced. Continues to be a learning process of learning/feeling correct body positions, and putting into a fluid motion. I did as you suggested and tossed a hammer around lefty; certainly feels better bracing on my left side, but visually it doesn't look good. Apparently I'm just really bad at tossing hammers

Haven't done the door frame drill for awhile, so this video is after a few minutes of practicing and watching SW's video. I think my main takeaway is I know I do not turn back this far while throwing.

Yeah getting the left cheek forward like that is absolutely key in the throw. Then as weight shifts onto front leg, drive your foot/leg all your energy into the ground in order to send your right cheek back (away from target so that it then occupies space where your left cheek had been).

Not too shabby of a finish position there. I think you need to stand more upright posture/spine on rear foot/leg. Looks like you are folded/bent over too much toward the left teepad from your rear foot/hip instead of turning back more upright on rear foot/leg. Your chin should be center leveraged targetward between rear ankle and ball of foot.

When you release from door frame your elbow starts bending the lower arm inward immediately ahead of your body shifting forward instead of moving forward taut and lagged back. The elbow will bend the lower arm straight back from lag when you start turning the corner after shifting forward.

Still grinding. Planting way to staggered, and certainly not turning back far enough. Think if I get my rear foot turned back more it would help turning back further. Any other insights/thoughts?

Not sure turning back is your problem, you round off and cross the streams as you transition from backswing to forward, your backswing is going around to the back right teepad and your stride is going around to the front left teepad, so everything gets crossed up.

Stride direction and posture/losing hip depth as you extend your rear knee and end up planting into too wide/staggered stance. You need more falling off your left leg/knee flex into the plant like raised left foot crush the can.

Recommend striding/kicking more left to right into plant so your butt wipes down the wall and your disc should stay wide toward the back left teepad. This should feel weird.

Thank you for the update SW! Glad to hear he is doing well. If you have a chance to communicate with him again, speaking on behalf of DGCR, I think we all very much appreciate his insight, knowledge, and help! Speaking personally, he always had a different way of saying things that clicked with me, for that I will always be appreciative!
