Default How to work on Three Step

I most always play with just a 1 step throw of the Tee or a stand still shot depending on the Hole. I want to start working on the three step. What is the best way to do that and is it better to start doing it with putters, Mids or fairway drivers.

Follow up: have we determined that the X step is better than the slide or hop? I hop.

I could never do the one leg spin and either have control of the disc or control of my body, it is one or the other.

Only a Sith talks in absolutes. I think we need the Casey 1988 Form Analysis Thread.

On topic: I would start with learning the basic foot position of the x-step and focus on the feet and move up the body. Try to take videos of yourself to see if you're doing it "right". I thought I was doing it "right" for too long before figuring out how I wasn't after I took a video of myself.

Default How to work on Three Step

Footwork is still something that I have to focus on. I have good days when it feels natural and everything just clicks and then I have days where I just can’t seem to find my timing to put it all together.

Like anything else, repetition is key. Do it, do it again, and keep doing it until until it just becomes natural. Focus on form and timing and go slow and don’t worry about distance. Once it feels natural you’ll be able to speed things up.

Good luck.

Let us know if you have any epiphanies along the way.
