In my video critique, Emiller said that I lean a lot into my throw, and that also my "shoulder" plane is off. If this is the case, maybe these one-step throws are a good place to start isolating issues...
Dude...you are throwing 390-400' shots into the wind in your video, that is far beyond the distance that most people throw. If you are wanting to throw farther for distance competitions, or the courses you play are airplane runways, then cool, I hope you find what your are looking for.
Otherwise, stay fit, play often, and make very small changes, one at a time, and don't let advice jack your game up. BE HAPPY, you're a stud.
Thanks, Dook. I don't think improvement stops, though, and since I'm unhappy with my performance as it is, I'm still looking for tips here and there. I don't have local disc golf sages to help me out IRL. Advice has never screwed me up. I don't find it hurtful to try new things, either, and in fact I think it makes me better because it makes me more aware of what works and what doesn't. It's easy to tweak things myself, but sometimes it's better to hear what others have to say also.
