Default Beginner learning proper form.

I'm new to the disc golf scene. Started playing about two weeks ago. Some of the things I noticed while playing is that all my discs go the same distance and I don't really have much control of where the disc is flying. I throw about 150 ft and have had a couple go 200 ft , which were measured using U Disc. Most of my throws go high in the air and then crash hard to the left. Discs in my bag are Leopard, Sting, Buzzz, Shark, Stratus, Aviar, and Focus. Any help would be appreciated.

I like what are doing with the rear arm, but you aren't shifting forward off the rear foot before the front heel plants. Your stance is too open and reaching back around behind your body/upper arm collapsed back against your chest. You are stuck with your weight on the rear heel when your front heel plants and in a wide/immoveable horsestance that feels very powerful but is very inefficient to shift/turn quick/athletic. Let your body shifting forward swing your shoulder/arm/disc like a pendulum.

Stay patient and work on a couple things at a time. Its easy to get overwhelmed when working on too many things at once. Its hard to work on grip AND stance AND the pull through etc. Most people take years to be able to do what's in those videos.

What would be the first things to work on? Weight shift and not hugging?

Where should your take away be? Mine seems to be very high after making some changes to my throw. Threw about 50 discs today and noticed that most of the pulls started above my shoulder, dropped down to my midsection and then finished above my shoulder. I think this is the reason I'm throwing nose up.
