Default Transitioning from ultimate to disc golf

Hi guys,

I'm new here but currently transitioning from ultimate to disc golf. The past two years of college I've played club ultimate but due to studies decided to take a break. The past week I have really started to go out and play. I mostly have been playing with a putter which is a Fuzion Warden and occasionally use a Tursas mid and Maverick driver. I have been trying to focus on my form and nose up issues and this is where I am at. In the video below you can see what my form currently looks like. I currently drive about 200ft maybe 250ft if I'm lucky. My putter and driver both go just about the same distance though which is frustrating. I'd love to hear any input you guys have!

Thanks again.

Looks like you aren't really getting your body/weight into it and making a more aggressive shift into the plant with your butt leading more/hips turned further back, and bracing up on the front leg and repelling the arm/disc out away from you more like an olympic hammer thrower.

Ah, I see what you mean. Next time I go out I'll really focus on that and thanks for the links to the drills too. That's really helpful!
