Default Form help

Hello everyone!

I've been playing for a couple of years but only recently started to really try to improve my technique. I've mainly been working on trying to pull on a straight line instead of rounding and I've been getting a little more consistent. But my main problem is distance. I can max about 90 meters (300ft) which is not that great and makes a lot of courses difficult to play. I'm still rounding a bit and probably not bracing against my front leg correctly from what I can tell. Any advice is very much appreciated! Also sorry about the video not being top quality.

Turn upright inside posture, don't lean over rear leg.

Thank you!

I'm not sure I fully get what you mean by "Need to turn your whole front side further back at the plant and shift from behind you"?

Care to elaborate on this? I get that I need to turn my shoulders/torso more on reachback, while keeping my spine upright and not leaning backwards, but what about the shifting from behind you part?

"Shifting from behind you" means that your weight needs to shift to the front foot while you are turned away from the target. If your weight shifts completely to the front foot when you are at your maximum reachback then you are in position to fully take advantage of the brace/weight shift. If you are already turning forward when you shift your weight to the front foot then you have started the throw too soon and probably are muscling it rather than letting the weight shift and brace trigger the throw.
