If you for e.g. throw from a standstill posistion the similarities are closer.
I do understand your point though, but if one can distinguish the differences there are some
basic principles that are alike.
Funny that the guy on your webpage looks very much like a player that plays here in Copenhagen.
Is that a picture of you or?
Just found out that theres a new picture every time I update your site.

The golf swing is a LOT more rotational and disc golf, it seems to me right now, is a LOT more linear - the disc gets put on a line and you deliver your force along that line. The forces we ideally apply to a golf club are along a plane and resulting in a radial motion.

I have read your sig several time, but I dont think you can imagine how hard I try to allign my feet to be straight with the line.
The only result I get is that I throw it way right. I allready throw it to far right without corrections. The question is why do throw it right when my
feet are aiming aim left And if I ad even more rotation, the disc goes even more right. Am I rotating to far? Is it the little pause in the rotation?
Or mayby like I mentioned, I have to push with the legs wile the shoulders stay passive at the first part of the throw and when the disc is in the
right pec then rotate the shoulders while straightning the arm.
JR wrote:You lacked the pause. The torso heading should turn from reach back to 90 degrees left of the target and pause while you move the right elbow well ahead of the right side. You must avoid getting the shoulder to elbow line pointing straight at the target or you can injure yourself severely. Once the disc is by the right pec the left leg should start to push, the nthe hips twist, shoulders turn and the elbow straightens. You turn from torso and toes pointed 180 degrees left of the target to 90 left with momentum. If you want to. A little push with the left leg is ok as long as you get the elbow forward.
