What do you think of this 600' throw by Will?

He's not falling over his plant - but his momentum shift is a degree more left to right than it should have been. The follow through is one of your best tell tale signs for if you're pushing the right direction in a 1-step or if your x-step is carrying momentum along your trajectory line.

Will's shot was rad!

^ Will is throwing a distance shot way out to a left apex and the footwork matches moving from right - left. There is no drift or sway.

Will throwing a pure hyzer with footwork moving slightly left - right:

Simon is OATing his shot in that video, flattening out his hyzer with his body.

Here's some better shots:

Ok Hub, thanks for clarifying. I know you use the Hudl app, have you ever used the commentary feature? That along with the comparison feature, drawing lines, etc. seems like a good teaching aid for things like this.

I have used hudl for a few videos, and it's biggest bonus for me was the ability to A-B to people's forms to show quickly the difference in timing and positioning. It's really a good tool.

If you have a Mac, I recommend (duh!) http://analyzrgolf.com/. :-) "They" have been known to give out discounted copies of the software to amateur disc golf analysts, too.

Simon is doing in that slow mo, EXACTLY what I've been called out for by SW on numerous occasions: NOT SHIFTING FROM BEHIND.

This is IMO a key concept that Simon didn't have an issue with pre-injury, but on a throw like that I'm guessing he was being cautious with his knee - and so he shifted his weight right to left. That'll reduce some of the power of the shift and as you watch the follow through, carried him past and around his brace.
As a result of the conversation in this thread, I have finally understood what SW was saying in a previous thread where he said I needed to be more "stacked an upright."

For the ENTIRE TIME I've played disc golf I have done that move that Simon does in this video. Over the past couple of days I've worked to correct my footwork and all of the sudden I can run up and throw an understable disc on a hyzer and have it flip late instead of OATing it. Obviously in a couple of days I'm not 100% yet, but man has this made a difference.

DYNAMIC BALANCE.

Thanks for the recommendation but I use Windows laptops, an Apple Ipad, and Android phones. Kind of a mixd bag, just like my dg bag

The original post he had a couple more throws where he stayed more inline - and was still accurate.
I don't fully understand what you mean by that. Shifting from behind, currently do you mean that runup is from right to left?
