thanks for all the advice.
I'm starting to get it.
I don't have any discgolf friends that are into it enough to do field work let alone play catch with,
so I've been doing field work on it over the last couple of weeks.
I've found that, just like with learning driving, analysis and repetition has been the key.
No shit! I hear you say, but hey I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree sometimes.
I forgot what it felt like before I began to learn to drive. So when I had the noob feelings with mid/approach stuff, I began to feel like I "just wasn't good at that" and that there must be some technical secret that I was missing.
I totally forgot that there was a time that I couldn't drive reasonably well, and along with that, all the work that I had to do to get as far as I have.
So far I've developed a reasonably accurate approach from about 100' in.
It all has to do with (like driving again) slowing down, visualizing the flight path, smooth and controlled movement and thinking about my pull line.
I'm hitting a lot more metal on approaches now and have made a good many sweet shots that were just not in my bag before.
I'm ashamed to admit that I've never done the right pec drill due to the awkwardness that I feel when I try it. So maybe in addition to this being the winter of putt and approach, I'll add some of that in the mix.
Can't hurt right?
