Default Natural Hip Flexibility and Stance

Climo naturally stands duck footed. Feldberg naturally stands more inline. Some people are naturally pigeon toed. This is why you can't carbon copy players. You must adjust your stance for your own natural hip flexibility to allow for maximum mobility.

I recommend starting your stance just like of SC talks about in Purpose of the Hips, lift your legs one at a time and let your foot/feet hang naturally into place.

So this is what our right foot angle should be in the brace? I’ve been trying to have my toe pointing even or in a little.

What about our last step in the x step, left foot.

That automatically happens the amount it should when you turn back properly in the backswing.

He is seeing his own vision in videos and interpreting everything to match his opinion. Nothing but hopefully time will change anything. He is/has been slowly progressing toward something closer to correct as far as I understand it. But when he gets there it will be as far as he's concerned 100% his own ideas and 100% contradictory to what anyone else teaches.

I've been mostly sucking the past couple of months. Basically playing year 1 disc golf.

But after watching this video and going through the motions of it, I noticed that I wasn't getting deep enough forward with my left cheek (RHBH). Realized that if you don't get your rear cheek forward, you end up shifting in front, even if it's not drastic - your body has no other choice but to do this because without the proper hip depth your hips aren't going to clear properly. You'll also be forced to open up the upper body prematurely. I immediately thought of SW's buttwipe drill and realized it's the same thing and wondered why I've been beating my head against a wall for last several weeks.

Naturally, once I found the proper hip depth, I could immediately get that powerful windmill feeling again and use the legs in concert with the swing. You know the pumping of the swing, the windmill acceleration feeling when using your legs....

In addition to being balanced on the rear leg in the backswing and gaining hip depth, I also have been focusing on leaving the disc behind me longer so that I don't try and throw prematurely. When you get deep enough forward and left, your front side can clear so much easier and your better balanced on the front leg.

Had a (mostly) fantastic round last night. Cheers.
