    Maxing at 400ft on a good day, feel like I have awful lower body mechanics.

    That explains why staying closed was so challenging

    Maxing at 400ft on a good day, feel like I have awful lower body mechanics.

    Quick play today with the three step setup of: ER dominant hips, tuck butt under (eliminate APT), fast transfer between feet. I struggled with staying closed and wasn't coiling as much as before as I was focussing so much on the rest, but other than that really like the results. Felt alot more...

    Maxing at 400ft on a good day, feel like I have awful lower body mechanics.

    Sorry about the video, lighting was terrible and my phones been on one so I did it all rather hastily. Thanks so much for the thought Kennets, APT has been mentioned several times before as well but I've never known how to address it in the moment (more of a longer term gym goal to fix). That...

    Maxing at 400ft on a good day, feel like I have awful lower body mechanics.

    I'm really enjoying the ER dominant style set up, I'm finding alot more consistency on the course and feel more natural. One thing that's bugged me for a while is my poor transfer between my feet which has been picked up on alot, where my back foot is glued to the floor. Please see below two...

    Review by Jillian in course Lilford Park

    4.00 star(s) A brilliant addition to the Manchester scene -A wooded course in the UK (more pleaseeee!) -A really really fun design. There's a mix of elevation, left and right turning shots and some technical (if short, par 4s). General concensus from players I've played with (including someone who's played...

    Review by Jillian in course Cotswold View DGC

    3.50 star(s) A really fun course that I never want to play in tournaments -Great quality equipment (latitude baskets, clear signage) -A wooded course in the UK! No complaints there. In terms of the style of woods, on the whole its a denser woodland compared to say a pine forest (though there's a hole or two...

    Review by Jillian in course Royal Berks DGC

    2.50 star(s) Very open mid level course -Good baskets (DGUK Castles) -Some fun shots and good use of the minimal features available (a couple of wooded gaps and some elevation) -A good number of reasonable par 4s (something lacking in UK courses) -A course well suited to the 900 rated player -Some holes are...

    Review by Jillian in course Arrow Valley Country Park

    2.00 star(s) A course perfect for beginners -Solid baskets (discatchers) -Genuinely some very very fun holes. A mix of open, wooded, distance and shot shaping. Having played events on expanded/amended layouts it's a solid template to make a more challenging course around as well -It's free! There's free...

    Review by Jillian in course Trentham Gardens

    2.50 star(s) A surprisingly good short course -Great equipment (Mach X baskets, solid signage) -Beautifully maintained property (bar one aspect, see cons). This is an attraction at a stunning country estate/private park and the care taken extends to their disc golf course -Good range of challenges and shots...

    Review by Jillian in course North Hill Farm

    1.50 star(s) A solid campsite addition -Interesting elevation based challenge. The course plays almost entirely on a hillside and uphill, downhill and sidehill shots are all challenged -Easy to access by car, just off the M25 around London -The design builds up really nicely for beginners. Very short holes...

    Maxing at 400ft on a good day, feel like I have awful lower body mechanics.

    Finally got back to where I was in post #128, but hopefully this time understanding it more. Things that connected with me were to force myself to throw from right pec (eliminate pulling), re-orienting the hammer/disc alignment, and staying closed through the shot. Doing this in the ER dominant...
