I'm still only getting about 350' out of my fairway drivers,

dude you need to get out of that mindset. seriously. 350 with fairway drivers is GREAT. if you are getting 350 with fairway drivers you need to REJOICE. You are probably getting faster discs out to 380+ right? That is PLENTY of D to win USDGC. Rather than working on going farther I would strongly urge you to work on throwing 350 or even 330 with accuracy and relaxation. If you can stay RELAXED and throw 350 you are infinitely better off than someone throwing 390 in their red zone. I think it is much easier to reach the goal of throwing 350 with relaxation than it is throwing 390 while bursting a blood vessel. And hey...once you are throwing 350 and staying nice and relaxed you can put just a little more umph into it and bam, you are throwing 375 and still staying mostly relaxed.

I understand in my head, separately, how it is supposed to work, but I haven't gotten from that to combining it with from the left pec to the right pec to the hit. It's a work in progress. I'm trying to rebuild from the hit back.

I'm starting to get this when I throw from a standstill or with one step, but I'm having trouble understanding how it works with a run-up.
