I'd like to see you do the elephant walk at 4:40 of this video, with a disc or a hammer although hammer helps you feel it better and it really slows down the movements in a good way.

This is to see how/when you are landing on the front leg prior to forward swing.

Did some door drills, elephant walks, and butt swipes last night. Filmed some throws when I got home from clinic today. Things i see im doing better - better swing plane, getting off of back leg better. Things that need improvement - activating hips better, not being flat footed, still rounding some. im working on staying on back toe better and trying to lead more with my elbow rather than shoulder. Should be able to get more practice in the next couple days. Also, i bought a tripod to put my phone on so i should be able to get better videos from the field now. As always, thanks to everyone who helps me along this journey

Yeah swing looks cleaner. Your x-step is not helping. Your rear foot steps in the way of your front foot and is pointed 180 backwards from target and your balance is back behind your rear leg and leading your stride with the front foot instead of your butt and you drift to the left around your rear leg into the plant and turn open your front foot, so you are basically in horsestance and staggered too much. Hershyzer Drill 2 then 1 and Kick the Can.

Watch my footwork, rear foot steps to the right laterally behind out of the way and in balance and front foot strides straight through closed into the plant with slight stagger(front heel inline with rear toes). You can do frame by frame using the "<" and ">" buttons.

Just a real quick video where i try not to drift. I know im still horse stanced here, but just wanted a quick video for reference. Going back and watching more videos of pros throwing I see it now with the weight being balanced where mine just drifts away to the left.

Yeah that's what I'm seeing...more simply I was seeing left foot/leg turned too backward in the X-step so your pelvis is set up backward with neutral hips. So this way you don't have any load, and have to open up in the horse stance to get to the plant position, essentially without any load and without a closed plant.

Yea i definitely see that now in all my videos and can see why now I couldnt get much power. Really gonna focus on getting that back foot to neutral now on my throws without any drifting in my throw. Once i figure that out, I think i will notice a difference in setting up my plant. Going to be tough since this has been ingrained in me for 7 plus years

What has been helping me is to try to mirror all motions forward and back. So do the one leg drill on the left leg to feel the balance for the backswing. That will eliminate the thought of turning the leg too far backward, as well as tipping past it. Then elephant walk will help you with the landing on the left leg for the backswing feeling anchored, and the right foot for the plant and then forward swing. You can just lift the feet or heels slightly while going back and forth in a pendulum as though it was the elephant walk but without walking, and turn that into a rocking forward and back feel then into a standstill backswing to standstill forward swing.

Holy freaking moly. Just wanted to say thank you for the forehand advice SW. Switched to more of a side shoffle versus crow hop and wow it was instant distance and i could feel how much more i could get my hips and shoulders into the shot. Hole 8 at my home course is a MASSIVE flick where it has to go dead straight for a longgggg time then a 90 degree turn to the right where the basket is another 70 foot away. Well threw a new Mcbeth Z force and actually made it hyzer around the corner. Then hit the 35 footer for my first birdie ever on that hole after playing it 50 plus times. I was so freaking pumped about it

Also, did a couple hours of field work today and brought my tripod and recorded with my phone. So nice having that instant feedback after a few throws. Here are a few clips. In the standstill, i was really trying to work on using butt/hips more. In my run up ones, i was more focusing on not drifting left. Im still in a horse stance, but its much better than yesterday.
