Hello gents.

Had some time off over Christmas.

Back at it now and trying to work on keeping the upper arm angle wide.

Landing in immoveable horsestance throwing upper body over top and jamming into the front hip instead of rotating upright from it.

I think I’m getting horsestanced as I’m trying to shift left of target and just can’t get my foot to turn too. I recently went to a driving range to try out ball golf and just couldn’t get the posture right. Is it the same posture?

Yeah, you're not balanced on the front leg. You're throwing from the rear leg and the front leg/hip is getting jammed and your spine and upper body continue to tip forward over the hip.

I would do one leg drill, and also try out the one leg hop to land to throw motion as in the gif in post 87 of this thread.

Basically your right leg is acting like a pole or post that hits you in the pelvis to stop your body, so the lower body stops and the upper body tips forward. You need to feel that the right leg is your new balance alignment so you end up on the right leg and rotating around it. One leg drill is the way to do this, and definitely film/post to get pointers.

I see it now! I watched some pros for comparison and it seems like such a subtle difference but loooks like huge difference in results. Hopefully get out this weekend. Still snow in the field though. Thanks guys

Also try the balance and one leg setup indoors. Just getting used to the feeling and mentally understanding what is happening, and being able to sleep on it before playing is very helpful.
