I'm in no position to give advice, but this is the difference I see between you and SW:

When he is swinging back and squatting before the jump, he is also rotating his torso and pelvis, while you are just jumping totally square and just swing the arm across the chest. So when he lands, he is more closed to the target and his butt goes more that way when he goes into forward bend(and gets even more closed), while yours goes to the right of the target(towards the fireplace). Notice how his left shoulder and hip is higher up when he is falling in the air but yours are level with the right side.

I can see that. I was watching the arm and feet and not even looking at the rest.

Hah, reminds me Goose when he thinks about truck driving school in Top Gun, : https://youtu.be/Wp6fiXarP5U

Just try to get your legs or core to propel your arm. Pretend you have to throw your arm and see what happens.
Yes, goalie control. I think this can work out.

If you get good at Faceoff 2000 I'll challenge you. I haven't played it for years but I have like 12 years of muscle memory built into my brain for it.

Also I was always into '96 but '94 is also a classic.

For your swing though, I think you're just thinking too much rotation. Find a wall or tree or something you can just smash an object through, or stand beside it and think about how that would be. Feel how you'd post up sideways to smash into it, rather than rotate. Battering ram, use your weight, unload the object and bust through.

I secretly like 95 but I know I'm wrong about that. 94 is the gold standard.

I've been trying the wall thing but I don't think I get it. Can you describe it another way? Add this to the list of DG techniques that take me forever to understand.

If you set up with a wall outside of your front foot, or better yet the corner of a wall outside of your front foot where the hit point is, this will help you visualize. By corner of the wall, I mean that directly in front of your right foot there is open space, but the edge of the wall is where your hit point is...so your body can follow through but your hand would hit the wall.

If you imagine that you are trying to hammer through this wall, or axe through it, you will brace up to impact it. You won't think "I need to rotate my body and get my arm moving real quick" to hit that wall. You'll think "I need to make my body real heavy and make that wall FEEL this hit". Also you can keep visualizing how you can have this hit point farther and farther in front of you when you're really balanced on the front leg.

I just see a lot of rotation and things like that in your movements, so taking it to a feel type situation where inherently you're thinking power/weight vs. speed and rotation may help change your perspective or visualization.

Like look at how this random person is posted up and hitting this tree real hard...no pre-opening, no over the top, etc.

Essentially this is the battering ram situation from SW. You can do two handed, one handed like with a hammer, battering ram style, etc. The swing/release feel does change between them, and the one armed disc golf swing is way farther forward/outside the front leg than two handed sports, which is something that has messed me up since day one. But thinking battering ram helps you stay closed too, so they can all help.
