1. So what is the ideal stance in the forehand throw? Staggered open, neutral, staggered closed?

2. What is the purpose of the back leg kick?

OLD

I have got a few of questions for you SW22 concerning OLD.

1. In my backswing my head is turning quicker than my arm/shoulders, is this causing sequence issues for me? When I watch your OLD video I see that your chin is moving along with you lead shoulder a lot more than mine.

2. Should I be tilting my lead shoulder more down during the backswing? I have noticed you mention this in other threads. If so, what is it for? Is it to feel more weight from the pendulum swing? (Am I really answering my own question? )

3. Anything else you notice? (You do not have to mention the trial arm, I know that should be tighter to my side although it is not doing that in this video)

I recorded this tonight


Thank you in advanced.

1. I think the difference is that I'm more braced up on the rear leg, your rear leg collapses allow your body to sway back, instead of redirecting the body targetward while still turning back. Try turning your rear foot further back.

2. Yes, it naturally widens your upper arm/shoulder and give more leverage.

This popped up on my YouTube feed and I was wondering if it applies to the DG forehand throw:


What do you think?

Sure does, it's just more underhanded/sidearm swing instead of over head.

Have you, SW22, ever applied the feet together drill to the DG Backhand throw?

Only as a drill without throwing. Harder to maintain balance than one leg drill.

HUB did this one a while back with a one step throw.

I like most of HUB's stuff, but I disagree with the knee action, it's poor posture.
