Order: Moser, Jenkins, Locastro, Brinster, Pitts Then Moser, Brinster, jenkins, Locastro, Pitt

You can see the guys with the big arms taking the hyzer route on the 2nd hole.

Watch these things:

1) How long the back foot stays planted.
2) How close Brinster keeps the disc into the right pec vs Jenkins
3) How late Moser pulls. It's really evident in the slow motion.

Just some interesting things.

In almost all of those drives, you can tell they are using the left arm/shoulder to drive the right arm/shoulder around.

It is interesting that Brinster's form doesn't get cited more often here on DGR. He even has the same form for upshots and drives (Blake approved!). Brinster and Moser are probably the pros for whom I've seen the most footage due to watching way too much disc golf monthly.

Often found in the bag as well: ZXS (thumbers), S-TD, QOLF instead of S-PD, Flow (still trying it out)

Yeah, whenever I am talking about "bent elbow" throwing to someone who would recognise his name, i bring up Brinster. I forgot what episode of DMG it was, but I think it was Cubby who said Brinster was one of the biggest arms in disc golf.

I know this thread has kind of died out, but it seems to me that the driving of the non-throwing shoulder seems really pronounced during Will Schusterick's throws as well.

Swedes from Skellefteå area take the prize in that area. I've never seen anyone turn their shoulders as quickly as Daniel Strandberg. Linus Åström is no slouch either.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
