Looking at Simon’s knee collapse at about 4:50 in his video reminded me of John Madden’s Pitching Velocity Killer #3 https://youtu.be/ZZQKsPt_g_Q?t=254.

Is the video you just posted probably 100 times better than any of the disc golf forehand videos out there or am I just out of my mind? Shoulder-hip separation, shoulder level and collapsing into the brace. Wow, everything that dude said makes perfect sense. I plant way too open, my left shoulder is down and theres not much shoulder-hip separation in the backswing on my bad fh days. The guy says 80% of the pitching velocity comes from hip-shoulder separation so I'd pay really close attention to that. With all respect to Eagle and his skill, repeating the same old dg forehand mantras and describing his run up for 10 minutes is nothing compared to that video.

I'm pretty sure Sidewinder started posting the John Madden YouGoProBaseball videos a few years back. Here is the channel https://www.youtube.com/user/YouGoPro/videos with a lot of good drills, etc.

It is way better, that pitcher vid is a goldmine.

Every dg pro forehand i have seen is just the same old: "tuck ur eblow in, palm to the sky" drivel.

Thats why I dont understand why the pros make the same video over and over again. I'd really like to hear about the learning process rather than the same old beginner stuff repeated. No science or even common sense arguments nor experience based explanations for anything they say.

And there is one reason for that. A pro player most likely does not understand what he/she does. They are good at doing it, not breaking it down or explaining it to others. And additionally they have been doing it for so long that they are very far from knowing what the hard part is. Thats why I personally love the stories of average joes who have figured something out. I dont expect science based arguments from disc golfers but a little more than the basic "dont do that, its bad" would make them more credible on their videos. I love the terminology that the pitcher had in his video and I really hope we have something similar one day.

Skip to 3:00 and Mike Dunaway shows the golf version which is similar with supination and pronation in the swing.

But Eagle's elbow/arm.....he's got to be double jointed or just have no bones in that arm. My arm hurts just watching his bend that way.
