It's firing like an explosion and clearing tightly. It's faster and more efficient that way.

Firing because it was pulled taut and stretched muscles want to return on their own volition.

The last pic of you is so good for showing the torque and tension! Well done! I would however make the cyan line curl around your body (anterior sling) leading back to the left shoulder, mirroring the magenta line.

Cyan is the lateral sling.

Ok, I see. I would like to think that the swing is more heavily dependent on the posterior and anterior sling working together like a spiral around the pivot. Basically the same thing, but going across the thorax and anchoring on the opposite shoulder.

Front leg wrapping around the pivot to back shoulder.
Back leg wrapping around to the front shoulder.
What do you think?

Oh... sorry, my mistake. I don't really understand the concept of bracing you see. That's what got me confused. I like to use the word "stopping" instead, which makes more sense to me. Besides, the hips aren't even that important. It's the left knee that is the motor behind the throw.

Haha you’re good man!
The brace is something that you’ve felt before but just didn’t know. Running, walking, kicking a ball, playing cornhole, etc are all things I’ve related it to and all use the brace. It’s just a matter of removing all unnecessary motions from it and training your body to find the braced up feeling, and using that to propel the disc. Think of it as a one-legged deadlift, with the power of the “deadlift” being used to pull the arm taught and targetward, slinging your upper body around your brace and propelling it towards your target.

I have caddied for double G a few times.


If you have never seen him throw in real life, its hard to process. He is an incredibly normal sized dude, with various amounts of gut over the years. He isnt lanky, he does not have large mcbeth hands. He is incredibly athletic though, dude backflips.

If you watch GG throw, and Drew Gibson throw, it would `feel` like Drew throws 100's of feet passed GG. Drew absolutely explodes. His throw is a rocket. Then GG has this sort of.. it `looks` slow in person. I have no idea how to measure it, but GG has to have the largest smash factor in disc golf history.

People also do not give him enough credit for just how amazing his backhand is. He bombs, yes, but give that dude a roc and put him in the woods, you will still just have your jaw on the floor.
