Alright so I spent the weekend just walking around the house working on weight transfer, just stepping from one foot to the other like skiing. My wife thinks Iím a weirdo but whatever.

This was my longest throw ever. I realize I didnít turn my hips back at all, I was just focused on the weight transfer and the brace. Feels way different that how Ive been throwing my hole life. Really excited to see my distance once I get my back to the target. Is this weight transfer/brace closer to what Iím looking for?

Slow mo then full speed:

Brought the camera out today. Iíve been working on adding a slow x-step. This is my longest drive to date, hole is 360 and I was less than 10 feet short of the basket. Looks like my back leg is still spinning out too much rather than coming behind the brace. Still working on getting that off arm to come into my hip like the turbo encabulator. Anything else ? Feedback appreciated

Nice rip. Is that cat hollow?

I think the spinning rear leg was because your weight got just a bit too far left (from the camera's perspective) and "over the toes". Watch your plant foot--you crushed the can, toe to heel, but then you spin on the mid foot (which looks to me like danger for the knee--that foot could just grip the ground). I think if your weight stayed on the heel, the plant foot releases faster, and the trailing leg naturally moves forward like a bowling finish.

It looks to me like you have 95% fixed the problem from your first post, and instead of blowing through the brace like it was never there you just slightly tipped past it.

Thanks! That is Cat Hollow. I live about 5 minutes from the course and go out there every morning before work. Hole 4 is fantastic for form work since itís pretty hard to lose a disc, though Iíve come close lol. So yeah - first time a played the Cat over a year ago I couldnít even get over that hill, so feels really rewarding to park it today.

Itís been unbelievably challenging to figure out this brace/weight transfer thing but I agree that Iím almost there.

Agree you are trying to rotate too much instead of shifting forward.

Need to get your right shoulder lower/left shoulder higher coming into the plant to match your pelvic tilt. Keep your lower arm below your elbow. You are swinging the lower arm downward with disc nose up.

First form post in about three weeks. Played a tournament and took a break from filming for a couple weeks, but Iím ready to get back after it. Currently getting dx aviars out to 270, rocs to 300, and dx eagles put to about 320 pretty consistently. Iíve had some random rips with my eagles that got out to about 340ish but couldnít put my finger on what I did different.

Hereís an x step, one step, and windmill. My x step doesnít add a ton of distance, usually when I play rounds I throw from a stand still/one step. Still seems like the windmill motion allows me to get the best brace/body position and definitely gives me the most effortless distance.

I know my head turns back to quick in my backswing, Iím not getting my shoulders turned fully targetward, and Iím probably still rotating too much rather than striding laterally. Anything else?

Looking better except your rear leg is pushing your upper body over instead of shifting lower body forward ground up. So your swing is downward with nose up because your upper body is going over top. You likely need to adjust your grip to throw nose down with more upward swing. Your eagles should be pushing 350' with nose down.

Would keep working on drills, Drag the Right/Rear Foot(Your rear foot is not moving/dragging forward, your foot goes up to counter your tip over), Swivel Stairs/Chair, Riding the Bull, Slow Motion Drill/Perptually Longer Swing Drill. Find a big downhill lie and throw from that without falling or pushing over the front leg.

Thanks, agree on the nose up issues, sometimes Iíll out drive my fairways with my rocs so I know I have an issue there

Default Finally got a tripod - please help me fix my backhand

Field work this morning. Found a downhill lie. First thing I noticed is something Sidewinder has been pointing out for weeks, but I never actually saw it until today. Iíve developed this sweet downward chop with my forearm, followed by a nose up release. Problem is it feels like a powerful hit and I can still get putters and rocs to fly pretty far cause they donít mind nose up. I really notice it when I only throw my eagles about 15 feet further than my rocs. So I need to fix this:

Spent my morning working on the dinglearm, coming low to high. Problem is I just canít figure out how to get any snap without this stupid downward arm chop Iíve developed. Here is probably my best attempt at fixing it:

So Iím thinking I need to go back to closed shoulder snap drills and just work on getting snap with the nose down and a more upward trajectory. Any other drills that would help fix this, or just work on that one and the dingle arm?
