Looks pretty good, just not turned back much or going a little early and shoulders a bit too horizontal. I wouldn't worry much about the release point, can't see anything there anyways. I think most distance shots are released at 3, and anything past would be drag.

Rad. Honestly it was a pretty sweet drive haha
Going a little early as in starting to pull before getting 100% on the front foot?
And shoulders should be more over the toes, on hyper style?

Waiting to get weight 100% on the front foot before pulling has been the biggest game changer for me this summer. I think I may jump the gun when I’m trying to power up, still.
I’ll focus on getting more turned back in the backswing on my next sessions.
Thanks again, SW22, this has been a journey!

Added a bounce at the top of the backswing and the idea of explosiveness rather than a gradual increase of energy through the swing and things have started to click a bit more with the plant, leverage, and getting deeper into the power pocket. And distance is finally increasing significantly!
About 30% of my throws are pushing just past 400’ now, and consistently I’m getting past 350’, which is big progress for me. And I’m stoked.
What I *think* needs fixing at the moment is nose angle- I think things are still slightly nose up because the disc is above my elbow in the power pocket and I get a slight air bounce at release (and sometimes just throw it into the ground). My theory on why this keeps happening is that my elbow supinates in the backswing, leading my wrist to rise up in the pull through. I’m trying to get in the habit of keeping my arm more probated at the top of the backswing with elbow facing out from my body rather than down.

I’m wondering what else needs work. Is the stride creeping to the left again? I’m aiming the whole x-step line to the left of the tee pad. Also, I think my stride might be too long- I finish with my weight back a bit and that may also contribute to the nose up issue.
Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!

Also curious if I am too upright still… and wondering if a more crouched/compact posture would help generate more leverage.

Need to shift your CoG balance more towards your left heel - buttwipe. Do not crouch. Move your balance.
See The Hips thread in post 2.

Should the CoG move in a straight line down the tee pad, that points slightly left of the target line?

Trying to focus on striding straighter, shifting more straight into the plant. Still feel like something is missing… distance is consistent at 350, occasional hyzer flip to 400 ishThanks for taking a look!

Need to get your left arm/shoulder to the anterior of your body and engage the core abs/glutes tucking your navel to belt buckle. Your weight shifts slow into the front foot because your left arm is dragging behind your posterior, instead of helping shift everything forward into the plant. Note how your pelvis is tilted anteriorly and lower spine extended as your core is disengaged.
