Wife and I went out yesterday and played 9, got here to tape my shots. Best drive of the day feeling wise was hole 17, at about the 2:18 mark, slowed it down some for better view of the shot. Let me know what you think.

I can't make much at all out of this video due to the camera shaking combined with the slowing down and not knowing, what you are trying to accomplish. I noticed that your follow through step goes way right at times. More than a mirror image of your x step to plant step. Meaning lost control and not directing all of your generated power into the direction of the throw=lost power on the disc with less than optimal distance.
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.

Ok, lets clarify a bit, that slowed down shot is a z buzzz shot thrown about 320 dead straight. That, for me, is a full power shot. From what I can see it looks like I don't get my weight forward as much as I can, my pull line looks lower than normal and I don't think I get into the power pocket enough. I guess what I want to accomplish is to have a very efficient throw. I might not throw the farthest but I want to get what I can out of my throw.

Looks like you are swooping the elbow down and not getting it forward of the shoulder. Also crouching the plant leg, limiting hips. It'd help to have more views from behind to see disc flight and also views from the throwing side.

I've seen this all the time, I do it myself a lot...basically you're not accelerating through a lot of your tee shots at the very end of the throw. I sense hesitance, or taking something off the throw, just as you're going into the hit. Your brain-body connection is trying to make some minor corrections at the last split second, and that isn't a good thing. Some throws are better than others, in this regard, at least on the video you showed.

Think of the final pop as being a sort of back-fisted punch directed exactly down the line you want to throw, and force your shoulders to lead and come all the way around, which will give you a more natural follow-through. A lot of the young guns force their off arms to come around and point in the direction of the throw, this is a good aiming mechanism, and couples well with those mechanics.
