He is being pulled by the momentum of the arm.

Maybe he has two left feet. Nobody's perfect.

I just can't imagine my plant foot slipping any direction other than straight forwards at any step of my throw. I wonder if there's some mechanic I'm missing that would cause that rightward motion.

I know my rear leg follow through is weak. I guess I should just post a form check!

At first I thought he never had much of a brace, but in frame by frame, you can see his foot stop while he throws, so he is definitely bracing. From there it just looks like body/arm/weight/momentum pulling him to the right as he slips. But....there's also the possibility he instantly felt the slip and his spontaneous reaction was to collapse to minimize strain on the knee. ?

Flinching is a superpower. Far more common than a shot like that, but someone who can make that shot is bound to have other superpowers.

Big distance throwers tend to plant their lead foot much further to the right. That might be why your foot slides forward and his slides to the right.

Da Vinci was a smart dude in his own right so maybe I'm overlooking something.

As soon as I saw that, I called foot fault as I think he slipped on the wet wood frame. I thought that I saw some of the other tee pads don't have wood frames around them, which would mean that the edge of the paving stones is the end of the tee pad. But it's still a hella good shot and ace!
