What do you guys think of James Conrad's form? He was up my way for an A tier (Gifford Pinchot Classic) and he was throwing some of the longest drives I've ever seen at those courses.

It always looks weird when he throws because his finish is so unbalanced and falls forward. But if you look carefully he is bracing during his throw, but just sucks at staying balanced after that I guess. Just a conjecture. I wonder these things too about people who throw far but have really weird looking form.

I played with his dad many years ago, really nice guy. James Jr. form is similar to Ken Climo. He tends to go a little over the top which helps get the nose down, but makes it hard to throw pure hyzers as you can see in the vid on several holes, and IMO a bit rough on the front knee. Some of you tall lanky fellows can get away with going over the top but is not as ideal as hyzer form like Will S, Lizotte, or more upright form like Jarvis.

He has a smooth form that works for him. He absolutely crushes. He's good to play a round with too.
