when it opens, or unbends.

My initial problem with the push put was getting enough momentum on the disc to make anything over a 5 footer. My solution was as my arm was lifting to the release it was in hyzer orientation but the second before the hit I sprung my wrist to flat as to do a handshake. This motion snaps the disc out, and as I practice the distance increases.
Another way to describe it would be until the second before the hit my palm is facing down. At that very last second right before my back leg is at full extension and my hand is at the height I want I turn my palm to the left quickly. Until that point I am lax and just letting the legs do the work.
As I was training myself to do this I would just think. "Hyzer to flat". Once I got this going it shaved so many strokes off my game.

mark12b wrote:yeah, on longer putts what's helpful sometimes for me is to remember "trust the pop" -- iow release close to the body and let the "pop" action send the disc flying. reaching for the basket can cause aim problems and/or too much nose-down (since nose down comes from releasing toward the rear of the disc).
to control the nose angle on putts, work with your release point. closer to 12:00 will give nose up while closer to 6:00 will give nose down.
