Yeah, that is great form. For a young guy. If someone my age tried to rotate our shoulder that way, I guarantee it would be the last throw we attempt.

the more pronounced your reach back the more you introduce the possibility of rounding. some players like Shusterick are so flexible they look like they're reaching straight back at 180 (and maybe they almost are).
Thanks! I'll have to try this "wide rail" thing. I'm pretty sure I've been getting the disc too far behind me on my approach.

I'm most impressed by the hip flexibility he displays. Check the recoil after release. I need to stretch more, lol.

Are you talking about how he pumps the disc forward before bringing it back?

Its a timing thing. Feldberg, doss, and others do it to. Its just a way to get into a rythem with the timing of your footwork and reach back.

It's basically a longer/arcing version of the wide reachback that starts from the inside and swings outside/wide, Simon and Will and others do it as well. Doss and Shultz never reachback from the inside, so there's less angles to contend with and probably why they are so consistent but not the longest throwers.

Yup right on point. Thanks for the clarification!

Getting this right definitely makes a difference for me. Nice and smooth. Muscle memory has me wanting to push with my back foot before this happens, but I remind myself I need the power at the end.

Is David Greenwell the Jim Furyk of disc golf?

Really funky form, but he has won a lot.

Dave G is demonstrating the "bent elbow" reach back.
