Too leftward.
See Tilted Twirl vid, top of backswing/reachback.

Ah ok, I did just watch that one and had a suspicion that's what you were talking about. I guess it confused me a little; it sounded like you were saying the disc should be flat at the top of the backswing, tilted down/pronated wrist at the power pocket, and then of course flat again at release? I guess I've been aiming for tilted down/pronated wrist from the backswing to the power pocket ever since noticing something similar in players like Simon, Eagle, etc, whereas I used to keep my wrist more supinated. I think I might be now seeing a subtlety I didn't before, though I'm not 100% and I'd be curious to hear what the significance of it is/how it helps the throw.



Does this paint a good picture of the idea? I can see that before the disc gets yanked forward they do both reach a point of relative flatness with the disc. Again just out of curiosity, what does this set up that keeping the disc angled down (or even angled up/supinated as some players do) doesn't?

Working through the door frame vids now, for the hundredth time but more and more clicks each time.

Should feel different loading or leverage of your shoulder, more pulled taut/smooth, less slack/yank in transition.

Gotcha, something I'll have to play around with then - but it sounds like maybe that's what I need to get my backswing finally in order. Thanks so much as always for all your time and insight!

Little off topic, but I'm off disc golf for a few more weeks with a minor hyperextended elbow. Decided to go hit some golf balls for the first time since the 8th grade, and I wasn't sure how it was gonna go but I've seen so many dang Shawn Clement videos at this point that it went surprisingly well. Was hitting 150+ yards on zero effort swings. Thanks SW!

Nice lower body action. This might help the upstairs.

Thanks! That's really cool, seems to be along the same lines as Shawn's battering ram, it's interesting seeing the two different approaches to the same idea



I'll definitely have to give it a try if I can get out again before all the ranges close for the season. Had a better time than I thought I would; I may be a multi-sport golfer now!
