Getting closer i think. Im still landing darkside some and still getting stuck behind some, but that video and picture comparison made so much sense. Im trying to keep my head focused on my target for longer and i could feel a difference. These throws feel much more powerful/faster. Gonna hershyzer it up some tonight

I usually just take a screen shot and use preview app on Mac.

I have AnalyzrGolf app for cooler stuff.

Hop over your rear hip and stay upright leveraged forward off it. You are sinking/collapsing into your rear hip/knee instead of turning back upright. It feels powerful sinking into horsestance, but is super inefficient.

I just use Paint, my markups are a little primitive because of it but I can get my point across.

So right here is exactly the problem. Your left foot step is too far in front of your body...you're leaving your spine and mass behind, literally. Like they are way behind the left foot, and you are turned/twisted back because of it.

Got to move your mass forward from the right foot, catch yourself on the left leg rather than leading your body with the left leg to have to wait, and then it's one leg left leg drill to turn back in leverage.

You're rotating freely as you pop to the left foot, rather than landing on the left leg and using that to turn back. I do think that the open closed throws are a good drill for you because they isolate this. I'm just seeing too many discrete parts in your open/closed throws rather than more flow. Each part of the body movement should happen because of the positions you are in. If you turn back as you move forward, the disc will stay in place...and this will load the hips.

SW you already do way too much for us so just take this as a curiosity. With those apps is it possible to take the stick figures and make them into a "flip book" similar to what Dr. Chris Yeager videos look like. That would be cool.

It wouldn't remove the video and leave the stick figure. Would be cool though.

Ok wanted to do a few throws before I go to the course. Weight looks more forward here. Starting to realize just how much I need to "hop" into my throw. It is funny imagining what you are doing during the throw, and then watching what really happens during the throw.

I like the shuffle/hop to the left foot a lot more. Keeps you more flowing and your spine inside of your step.

The open/closed is looking better too, more flow again.

I feel like your front side opens as you plant. I think you need to commit to landing closed and almost backwards feeling as you just drop/land down on the plant foot. Your front hip and femur should be more closed, I'm seeing some clockwise rotation which is why I always feel like your throw has disconnected parts. Maybe part of it is trying to stay closed and have the toes touch down and then drop straight down onto the heel and instep. This is a problem for me too, so I know it isn't as easy as just fixing it. I do it pretty correctly in my FH weight shift but I always lift up my foot and place it down weird in BH, and it causes the foot to start to rotate open as I come down rather than keep turning closed as with pro's. Remember though this happens because of how your body is turning, not from you turning the leg itself in the hip socket.

Still leaning back over the rear leg instead of turning back into it. In Open to Closed, your front foot strides left then forward, instead of making a big circle counter clockwise around the rear foot.
