Glad you crossed over to DG!

Sidewinder22 is getting me close to a much better "free-wheeling" BH form I can iterate on (which I'm sure will take months/years), so FH should be back on the menu soon. Re: FH, my shoulder issue started many years ago with a bad guess at throwing a baseball without training. Your experience & the Robbie C video are very helpful. I'm going to try the FH hyzer drill he suggests first, that makes a ton of sense.

This is helpful to hear. Also, I was paying close attention to Sw22's post on leading properly with the elbow. I definitely was not doing that before & was putting too much torque on my shoulder and elbow. At that point, I stopped to work hard on my BH to get at least one throw technique under control. Since then, for FH, I've tried short upshots here and there just focusing on getting my elbow forward before the plant and it feels much better. I'll take some baby steps in this direction soon!

There's a few courses just off 95 in northern DE worth a day trip. Lums Pond (meh), Iron Hill (you'll need the arm and precision for that one!), White Clay Creek, Bellevue, and Brandywine are all within 20 mins or so of I-95. (most of those are DE state parks, so you might want to see about fees)
I keep hearing good things about Tyler & it's top of my "must play" list now. Helpful to hear about these down the I-95 corridor too since I can plan ahead for that.

Anyone else just want to quit everything else they're doing and play DG all day every day?

Putting games start Christmas morning in the garage. Super stoked to get a round or two in with my little dude as well.
