I've read many stories about the kind of person Feldberg is on the course or during a tourney, and quite frankly, I could care less. He is one of 3 people (Ellis and Blake being the other 2) that excel at explaining what is going on in discgolf motions.

I get the feeling we as DGR should take the stance of not to promote the theft of video content in any shape form or fashion. That said, this is a fantastic video and I don't believe there are any legal ramifications of educating people on how to download uncopyrighted video content on the web.

There does not appear to be any copyright restrictions on this video. Yet.

Rather than fighting the snow, I decided to set up an outdoor practice target and work on my putting. I was hitting a pretty decent percentage out to 27’ with 168 SS Magics, and even my misses were close out to 36’. With a bit more work, I have reasonable hopes of becoming a solidly mediocre putter by spring. :wink:

Here is the practice target. Anything between the plastic bag and top of the shovel handle counted as good. I hope that working with a target like this will make a real basket look huge.

true story:

I watched this whole thing twice, and took in every little piece of information and tried it all out. I broke my putting down to each motion, tore it down and started over. Mind you, I was a pretty decent putter before this video, 10 for 10 from about 20-22ft no problem.

Watching this video made me miss everything, even 10 footers. I dunno why... it just completely ruined my putting stroke and confidence. I know it works, and pitch putting is tough to learn and switch to, but gawdammit did this screw up my putting. I gave it a LOT of patience and effort, but it just wasn't for me. i had to throw THOUSANDS of putts in the basement over the past two weeks to get back to 'normal.'

My putt stroke is sorta like a pitch putt anyway, so i think i was just over-analyzing it and basically noonan'd myself on every putt. one cool thing I did take away was hyper-extending the front knee, that added a few more feet to my normal putt and should help getting me out to 40' without jumping.

I've actually been working on this, and it seems to be helping me. My main putt was a pitch putt before, but it lacked some of the things that Dave showed that dramatically increase accuracy.

I may be just lucky though, because I think I've got a good feel for the finger spring/palm ejection thing that Blake talks about. I just need to practice it.

I still can't spin putt for crap, though. I need a video on that :D

This.

Feldberg can definitely teach and this video has started to help improve my putting already, having just watched it last week.

Fierce, from what I can tell it has been taken off of the SVDCG site too. If you have the link or I am doing something wrong please let me know.

I don't know what to tell you. When I go to the link I provided the video works fine for me. It can't possibly be in my cache, so I have to assume it's still on that site. Is anyone else having problems viewing it at this point?

As a tip for the future, if you ever find a video you like on the internet you should download it. I used to have a folder of nothing but links to videos I liked...now so many of those links are broken or the videos have been removed my links are useless. I realize this doesn't help you in this case, but just an easy thing to keep in mind for the future.
