That is GOOD!!! That means you are doing it right. Of course it wants to slip, you are applying more force than ever.


I am going to redefine disc golf instruction. I have decided. Video evidence shows that the classic teachings are simply wrong in the modern era.

I like it to help straighten up your posture and keep the backswing and transition inside(stop rounding early).

No drill is perfect. That's why they are drills and exaggerate certain parts of the throw.

Personally I grip loosely from start (not to tighten muscles, especially those I will not use in forward vaction, the "antagonists"), then gradually increase pressure. I realize when now trying to swing like Bradley says, I have to grip much much harder then I am used to. Grip lock? No!; I cannot hold the disc, it releases nicely. It is tons of more swing weight in this action... Now I must practice again... kind of square 1 (again)...but funny thing also is that it seems already more consistent in terms of release direction...but maybe next week I am in the trees again... I have patience though, preparing for next season :-)

YES!!!

Because a wide arc throw is NATURAL. It is a throw, which is a perfectly natural action.

Not trying to start a lawn mower. Which is just weird.

Great thread. I've been trying to apply this technique for the last couple weeks, and I'm definitely seeing some gains. Still not quite right, but getting close.

Good to see you back, Brad! I remember you back on DGR. I used a different username (sunspot) back then.

This new video cleared up some confusion I had concerning the closed shoulder. I was definitely doing the "chicken wing" throw without realizing that it was creating a small arc. Seeing and feeling the difference between the open and closed shoulder is a huge difference.

Anyway, can't wait to get some practice in.
