Default Horrible Form! Looking to try to Throw 400 Feet!

I throw both BH and FH and max out around 335' BH amd 360' FH. I know I have a ton of OAT but I have no idea how to fix it.

BH - You aren't fully planted/balanced on your front leg before swinging and rear arm is hanging back/swinging around you. All your steps and plant are too backward. You want to move more lateral/striding. Hard to tell, but also think you are planting open stance w/ front foot inline or to right of the rear foot on tee pad, should plant front foot closer to left side of tee pad.

FH - I've never seen anyone take such a long x-step FH. You are very crouched down which makes you have to pick up your front knee to stride forward. I'd start with a pitcher's stride, upright and fall/stride into the plant - both BH and FH.

Somehow my BH has gotten to about 360/380 and my FH has gone down to about 330/360. My realease on my FH is crap as of Saturday, but I'm playing a round at 10 today so I will see if it was just breaking free from the rust. If it is still crap I will do a field session tomorrow and take some video both BH and FH. Hopefully 70+ will contribute to some better throws.
