So basically I need to stride straighter towards the target and not to the left side of the teepad?

Threw some more today with my dog, which makes taking video difficult, but my upper body was all wonky yesterday and today I felt I was releasing the disc outward instead of spinning. I feel like every little thing I do right adds like 10' of distance, but I can only do a few of them right at one time.

Pretty much... more buttwipe. You can see when you pivot on your heel, you over spin on it because your balance is seated behind it to right teepad side.

Ok I see, so basically I should stride in a straight line towards the trajectory of the shot and keep head balanced over/inside of front foot and clear room for the swing better by clearing my hips better in the backswing/forward swing?

The front foot thing makes so much sense. If my front foot spins out in the backswing, there's basically no way to shift from behind because my heel is already too far forward. If my front heel moves backward with the backswing, I can actually move it forward during the forward swing and shift from behind much easier. Haven't been able to experiment with it in the field yet, but just drilling it feels so much better.

It's getting up to 41 here today.... great day to go to a local park here that has mountain biking trails and great places to field practice, even wooded areas to get gaps and such. Going to try and get some videos.

No video update, I ended up throwing pretty poorly. When I get into an open field, I tend to tense up and try really hard. But the interesting thing is that after I stopped field throwing I just took one Roc and ran around the park hitting gaps. Just focusing on hitting gaps smoothed out my form enough to get some really good shots. So, next time I will focus on actually hitting lines in the open field. After all, that's how you play on a course anyway.

Ok played around with the slow motion drill today to work on not spinning out my feet. It definitely feels weird to not spin out my front foot, but I can feel how that shifts me more laterally than spinning. You can see I still tend towards spinning out in the video but its a little bit better sometimes. But now I know how it should feel at least.

Your front foot needs to be open/neutral, you are trying to move into a closed front hip. The front foot toes should not move or slide or come off ground in slow motion drill, only heel comes off ground and replants about where it started, the pressure should roll along the inside of your instep like in Swivel Chair Drill. Your front knee should get kicked in backswing as your front foot pivots up, so it keeps the spine upright inside posture instead of leaning/tipping/swaying over your rear leg. The rear foot/leg should mirror the front leg in forward swing.

Does anyone have a suggestion for good frame-by-frame type playback apps for Android? I find myself unable to really see what I'm doing wrong when I watch the video in the field on my phone, but then when I get home and can actually slow down the playback its easy to see, but at that point its obviously too late to try to make the change. I found one that will slow down to 0.13x which is slow enough, but its hard to scrub back and forth.
