Default Lemur's Form Thread

Hello form critiquers,

I have been a DGCR member for almost 10 years and have a frequent observer of the form thread. Finally I grabbed my phone and decided it was time to become a better driver.

If better videos are needed (or other angles) please let me know and I will update them.

My portfolio is:
6'1

High School/College Athlete


Playing disc golf since 2007

Since watching Sea Bass's videos I have increased my distance to 445 feet (from 400 ft. 2 months ago). I believe I have more power to unlock and am really excited to see what I can do to better myself.

Please do not hold back as I would really like to increase distance and fluidity!

Need to drive/shift everything forward off your rear instep. You are trying to drive off your rear heel and rotated everything too far back around with your rear foot pointed 180 degrees away from target - should be closer to 120-135. Your rear arm is also flying out behind your back and slowing your rotation down, instead of tucking in front of your chest and speeding up rotation.

Yeah fixing the rear arm/leg as SW22 said above and you are going to be crushing over 500'. Everything else is pretty textbook to my eye, maybe getting the front shoulder a little jammed/turning the shoulders open just a tad too early, maybe. What sports did you play?

Ok, thank you for that feedback. I’ll begin to work on that weight transfer and tucked in arm over the next couple of days and post a follow up video. Also, like UN suggested, should I try to wait to engage my shoulders a half second later?

UN - I played baseball and basketball in high school and then DII basketball. (I was a lefty slap hitter in baseball which was not good for generating power from my hips. But, I’ve been working on it over the years and it’s definitely gotten better)

You need to delay the backswing, so your shoulders are still rotating away or "staying back" while driving forward into the plant. You turned back away too early/too far around, so you have no choice but to start going forward early.

Ok, I will practice that drill as well. I'll work on the weight shift from the rear leg and tucking in my rear arm first. In that golf video I saw him "collapsing" that back leg, is that what I should be doing in my X-Step?

I wouldn't say it's collapsing. It's bending out of the way to shift forward just like walking or running.
