Two different angles. These are putter throws around the 300' line. I feel like I am bracing, Im pretty sure I get the disc into the power pocket, but I dont seem able to hold onto a disc long enough to really hit it. Please correct me if im wrong.

I can put a teebird in the 350 area and a putter around 300 if that matters.

Yeah your bracing and actually sequencing looks pretty good, but your stance looks a bit open which is going to make it hard to keep your body out of the way of the swing. You want to plant your front foot a few more inches to the left side of the tee pad from your rear foot, this will give your more space/power pocket to swing through unimpeded by your body. Also you barely turn your shoulders back far enough so your swing is really short. And it looks like you aren't getting your elbow forward enough and slightly rounding partially due to the open stance and not turning shoulders back enough keeping your arm/disc in the same place so your upper arm angle will end much wider from your shoulders/chest.

Turn shoulders further back at plant:


See Water Bottle Drill for better pacing/control to be able to hang on longer:


Mostly check the Inside Swing Drill, although Butt Wipe will also help turning back further:

Thanks, it all makes sense. I've tried to stop reaching back so far, it was making my timing goofy. Obviously I took it to far.

Which of the 3 issues you listed, would make the most improvement? I don't want to work on too much at once.

Shoulder turn... Door Frame and Inside Swing Drill are basically the same concept just slightly different approaches.
