K been wanting to do this for a few years but just now have the capability to do so....yeah I know I'm behind in technoligy

over all I dont think my form is to bad but my biggest problem is gaining distance, been at the 300-350ish range for several years now...granted I dont get out to play quite as much as I would like.

non of these drives are really full power since I'm at my local course and it is more or less a pitch and putt course

question: what is that Lime Green Bag in a few of the shots? Is it one of your creations?

well you are very smooth. you have excellent concentration. you were able to make a good drive while your daughter was digging in a bag right next to the tee pad. I would have fell on my face shanking the drive if that was me. but I guess you get used to it. on a couple of drives it appeared to leave your hands nose up. but overall it looked very controlled and clean. maybe if you showed some vids from a soccer field or a place where you can really try to throw farther we could offer some more help. but please don't injure your bag making hands. I'm still saving up to buy one of your bags.

that neon green abombination I prefer to call "retarded Monkey Fish Frog" belongs to my friend Ed whom I posted video for also of him throwing, and it is a Chimp bag that he paid for with his soul as some have in order to get me to make something so horrable I have to name it! LOL.....I mean BAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :twisted:

I have always been able to concentrate on what I am doing when throwing or putting regardless of what is going on around me. if you listen close on the second drive you'll here my D buzzz hit a tree dead on and taco the rim!!!! woooooooo lol ....I tried the drive over and did the same thing on another tree 10 seconds later.

thanks for the props on how smooth you think I am!

when I get the chance I'm gonna get to the field and take some shots of me going all out with drivers!!!

Can't help you because I'm not on facefu**book because I don't want to know when my "friends" buy porn or spam. Anywhere else?
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.

Ed has shoelaces that match his bag? I think we are entering surreal land here.

Your throw doesn't look bad at all. Accelerate more towards the hit and watch your release point a bit. It seems erratic. Hard to really judge it on midrange throws since some of the shots you are making seem like touch shots. On one of the throws it seems like you air bounced it. Not sure if that was intentional or not.

If you look really close Ed's glasses also match, he's a neon green junkie

Are your knees flexing? They seem a lil stiff.

You seem to be dragging your back leg (left leg) after you complete the X step

When I look at it a couple times, I keep thinking "are your hips stiffening up" ?

The left shoulder/arm is hanging in the back.. You need to get it involved and complete the core rotation

Hips, chest, left shoulder and left elbow - get them involved and swing away with both sides..

What i see is you using all your power on the right hand/elbow/shoulder and the rest of your body is just responding to the torque/force generated by half of your body.

Otherwise, form looks really solid from beginning to end. A lot of people could watch this and learn how to throw 300.

Here's to many more trees :)
