Some folks had Philo come by for private lessons a bit ago. One of the guys who is already really good talked about two things he wasn’t expecting. 1 figured Philo was knowledgeable but was unprepared for just how amazingly cerebral this guy is at with the game
And 2 how he could see things in real time we figured you need slow motion and going back frame by frame to pick out.

GG steps left foot more out of the way toward right tee side and hops/stands more upright like a pitcher on rear leg and has unimpeded access to stride front foot forward. Pitchers usually have the head further toward the right tee side (LH pitcher) of their rear leg so front leg counter balances out toward left side.

Simon moves everything inside-out, GG moves everything outside-in backswing.
Also Simon is a taller player at nearly 6 foot or just over so he needs to crouch for some shots, with long legs so he can do his style of throw inside out. GG he is a bit smaller and more compact body so he can go outside in and not run out of tee pad on the one side. Both still throw a long ways with a disc golf disc.

I do more the Japanese/Asian style with the mini low forward hop in the throw for max D if ding it right. Always have due to my size of 62 inches or 157 cm.

That is a lot to chew on.
emphasizes even more my personal complaint for needing to do some yoga and really increase my flexibility in general. My hips are so tight and have been for ever. Seems to explain a lot but also more questions than answers for me

I had a pretty horrible lower back mess up at Christmas (out on my back for about 3 weeks and bent over like an old man for another three)

After that I've been trying to increase flexibility and strength and have been having to rebuild my throw to a large extent as well.

I've found some of the Disc Golf Strong hip flexibility videos have been excellent and easy to do whilst watching television, it's made a noticable difference in getting my lower back/hips involved in the throw again. This one specifically 2:50 or so

Baseballs weigh about 145g. If they weighed 175g, I wonder if a pro disc golfer’s disc or pro pitcher’s baseball would travel faster?

Edit; thought* can you imagine the first pitcher to throw with disc golf backhand form? They already throw submarine forehand. A switch-pitcher.

I think a disc would go faster backhand due to grip ergonomics.
