Postby TLaw10 » Wed Nov 25, 2009 8:49 pm

I'm about 5-6 months into my disc golf career and i'm looking for as much help as i can get. At best i've slung it about 370 but my consistency is not where i like it. I've tried to analyze myself and ask others for help but no one seems to give me anything i can understand. Here's some videos of me at a field. Fire away, i expect it, lol. Thanks in advance

looks pretty good. I believe you're not getting into the right pec area before you come around, so the disc is coming out with less power.

Looks like you get over the disc though and pretty good pivot. You could reach back further.

You raise your left leg early slowing down turning toward the target missing out on hip twist and leg push power. Both feet should be grounded when the disc leaves for max D drives. Your reach back is high then it comes down and the disc raises a bit after bypassing the torso. How about equal height pull? You won't lose much from gravity induced power generation in that arm dropping from the reach back. Like not noticeable probably. You gain consistency.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I'm having a hard time allowing my back leg to stay more grounded, any pointers or advice to make this easier? thanks

Pushing later with the left leg helps with late acceleration of the arm. It's actually beneficial for late acceleration to utilize the most power from everywhere late. Another helpful thing is to bend both knees equally more so that it take more time to straighten the left knee. It may delay the lifting of the leg to beyond rip alone. going too far down in the stance will again begin stressing the joints. You don't want less than 120 degree angle at the knee for health reasons.

saw you short arming a couple, then others you werent, follow thru

also the video link above, your approach is less of a cross step more of a baby step then a gallop
do what works, but maybe work with the x step some and see if you like it
