I dug into as many of the videos Sidewinder posted during my lunch break as I could, then I walked around weight-shifting for the rest of the work night!

Got out and did 90 putter standstills today. First non-putting throws I've done this year. They didn't all feel right especially at first but I got better and better as the session went on.

I think in my old form when I did my reach back it was out a little too wide from me and I didn't realize it. Today I concentrated on pulling the Disc back so it would be more in line with where my chest and the power pocket will be and that helped a lot.

It's still weird concentrating on my hips instead of my arm. Going to keep working at it until it doesn't feel weird.

I've never in my life been able to power grip a putter, but for some reason today it felt right and good. Maybe good form is necessary for this? I was getting my best ones out to 200' cleanly today and that NEVER happened with my old form.

Hooray, I think I'm off to a good start!

A local pro at putting league last night gave me some tips for my putter standstills. One of them was very helpful, having my front heel up in the air then bringing it down to help shift the weight and that worked great in my field session this morning. Another tip I wasn't so sure about, hunching over somewhat during the throw. I've seen a lot of talk about being more upright and that's what I'm going to stick with for now.

I got some of the putters out to 79 paces today, the ones that felt real clean. Super happy with that!

I got a tripod and figured out how to record myself. Here I am after over 1,000 throws so far in March. You can see I have a lot to work yet to do. (I'm already throwing these putters from a standstill as far or farther than I did mids with a full x-step last year, though!)

You seem overly concerned about your backswing or reachback since you never address yourself or swing forward to the hit/target. You are over-reaching back and swinging out of your shoes. I'm only looking away from target for a split second to watch my disc going to the top of the backswing. Pumping/swinging forward before the backswing really helps with a lot of things. Don't be afraid to let the disc swing.

Your stance is turned too backward and when you go to plant your front heel it starts spinning further away from target instead of striding targetward.

Now that you mention it, my best ones tend to go about 30-50' right and I keep wondering why I end up facing that direction. I was guessing that maybe I was rounding a little. Thank you for that analysis too!

I had a limited amount of time to throw 50 or 60 in the field behind my house before lunch and heading to work here. I focused on making it look more like yours. No power at first, but by the end of the session I was feeling it and even got a few out to about 230! (Granted, with a tail wind, but still, they felt great)...
