Started to turnover

Postby jakobfisher » Tue Jun 13, 2006 1:34 pm

A strange thing happened last time I played. All of my drives were turning over. I have looked througout this forum and can't seem to find anything to help me understand what happened. I haven't changed my form at all, I drive using a basic x step with no run up....anybody have any ideas?

were they turning over or were you grip locking them and pulling them to the right?

I went through a spell about 6 months ago where I was turning discs badly. It kinda worked its self out.

My problem is that I was taught to throw straight, so I on occasion have difficulty with hyzer/anhyzer angles (or over do it).

Something that may help is backing off power; try throwing at about 75% of your power level and see if it helps.

How big are your steps? Too big of a last step will cause your body to torque a disc, depending on the line you're trying to throw.

Are you fairly new to disc golf? I remember when I first started playing it seemed there was just one day when all of a sudden all my drives starting turning over. So, I started throwing with a ton of hyzer to get my disc to fly flat. Turns out my DX disc was just too beat in and all I needed was a new disc. Throwing with that much hyzer for a while really messed up my form. I'm still trying to unlearn it.
