Ok after doing some drill and going to the course, I am convinced that my best option at this point is going to be just go back to square one. I have many bad habits from other sports that is transferring over. Gonna throw only putters/mids for awhile and do tons of drills. What drills do yall recommend to start off with. Gonna do some hammer throws, one leg throws, and the right pec drill and film some of each. What else do yall recommend for drills to rebuild my throw? I have 6 months until I start my residency so I want to be comfortable with my form by then.

That sounds like good practice, experiment with a drill or two per session and analyze film. Focus on balance and feeling leverage to sling the disc's weight effortlessly. Butt swivels one direction and arm/disc moves the opposite direction. Don't practice every single day, maybe every other day or less. Body needs recovery time to build new muscle memory. Don't be afraid to try something that feels like it has no power.

Good deal. Thanks so much sidewinder. It’s can be frustrating, but I’m pretty excited about the process. I know the hard work will eventually pay off. Biggest thing I have to tell myself is that it won’t be some instant change. It’s gonna be a slow process

ok after doing some one leg/hammer throw today I really felt like my right glute and thigh were sore like I had been using them a lot. I felt as if i was really tightening that right backside when i was pulling through. Hopefully this is what I should be feeling. Will get out and get some videos when the weather is better

Ok I think I finally got the grip correct. Did a few late night hammers working on being balanced and smooth. It cracks me up hearing my ankles snap, crackle, and pop in all these videos. Sprained each one multiple times playing baseball

Grip looks much better! You are swinging too fast and too around/shoulders too open. Do this slow and maintain master control the weight of the hammer swinging targetward with closed shoulders.

Did some one leg type throws into the net today. Feel like I’m making a little progress, but not much haha. Shoulders still feel like they are flying open. Biggest thing I’m trying to get the feeling of is the correct weight shift which I think is slightly better. Still not fully committing to getting on the brace leg I feel. Enjoying the process of trying to revamp the form.

You are still trying push too late off the rear foot, after the front heel plants. So you are trying to push through a braced front leg and spinning out, instead of shifting everything forward off rear foot as the front heel plants and then rotating/swinging posted upright on the front leg.

Your head is also not turning back or forth. Watch your disc swing back and forth.

I have no contribution to the form stuff (at least not now), but it seems like many a disc golfer took their game to the next level in 4th year. My psych rotation was right next to two nice courses, and my last rotation of 3rd year. Psych-cation, followed by 4th year, made some nice time available for DG.

Enjoy, and good luck in the match! I was in Jackson and regret that I didn't get to play the Rez. But I'll be back...

Thanks! I’m going into Urology so I’ll know where I’m headed in just a couple weeks! The Rez is awesome and probably a top 5 course in MS. I’m planning on taking disc golf vacation to Idlewild sometime this year
