So I have spent the last two days trying to slow down my initial arm pull. The first day I think I had good success and I actually got my putter drives out over 200 feet (was 150-180). However I still kind of feel that it is too fast. So the second day, I slowed it down some more. Initially, my putter drives dropped to about 140-150 feet. By the end of the session I had it back up to 160-170 feet.
Note that I know that I still have to work on getting the disc closer to my chest, footwork, chopping the elbow and a number of other things, but right now, I am just trying to get a slower arm pull.
Below is a video of my drives by the end of day 2:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLg9DJmykco
The first throw is an example of the faster throws on the first day. The following 5 throws are the slower throws of the second day. So I would like to know if the arm pull in the first throw is still too fast? Is the arm pull on last 5 throws better? Too fast, too slow? Am I kidding myself, are they all too fast?
As an aside, I discovered that to slow down the arm pull, I had to slow down the hip and shoulder rotation. I found that I was rotating my hips and shoulders so fast that it was pulling my arm too fast. Maybe everyone else already knows this, but it was a discovery for me.
Ugh - I just took another look at the video. Am I pulling before my front foot is planted?
