Even 80% done at high volume will break down tissue if there is enough repetition. Think about the sheer amount of people who do even light labor for a living who end up with cumulative trauma injuries. Will has said before that the crazy amount of hours he put into practice putting could have been a major factor with his shoulder having problems, not just the big drives.

I recall Feldberg saying many times that he doesn't practice or play much at all except a little putting. That guy was way ahead of his time with that idea me thinks.

Total load over time adds up.

I might disagree about the long "strong legs" comment. I'm not seeing much meat on them bones, and take a look at Anthony Barela's legs, wow..I cringe when I see him put too much pressure on those legs, they look like they could just crack at anytime.

I thought I was having some shoulder impingement issues the other day. I ate some hamburgers, it's fine now.

I disagree. Relative to his height and shoulders he is built like a horse. Where as some guys have a lot of upper body and average legs. I think of Drew Gibson and even Simon Lizotte.

Dave's comment on practice is current. When he was younger that's all he did was practice. Now a days and the last few years no probably not much practice at all.

Yes, I agree on major amounts of putting can cause impingement issues.

Nate Perkins - "Notice how close Eagle's elbow is to his body and far back the disc is":

Compared to Wysocki, elbow never close to the body:

Rick's been throwing less FH's the last few seasons, so much so that many pro players on commentary wonder on some holes why he chooses the BH over a FH line with his great FH. So as far as I'm aware nobody has said anything about him having any physical issues leading to this? Maybe he's just feeling way more confident in his BH over time?

To me, Rick's FH looks the most like a typical baseball OH throw but with the body tilted to the side, so the shoulder/elbow position look really similar relative to his spine.

Koling often speaks about how he doesn't throw FHs like the power FH guys do. He's often throwing FH with flippy to super flippy discs with hyzer. Good luck finding him laying into a PD2.
Koling is a wise DG elder, he's seen what happens to players when they push the envelope.

First thing I thought watching that video was, sideways baseball throw.

Either you’re being facetious, or you’re being an A-hole. Either way I’m disappointed that you’re getting likes.

I'm pretty confident that eagle's impingement is just from having rounded shoulders. That's the root cause of almost every shoulder issue because it inevitably leads to rotator cuff tears.
