Welcome to the board. I imagine that others may have more in depth advice, but my two cents, without seeing you throw, is to make sure that you are using your body efficiently. Developing form is a constant process, and it sounds like you have a superb attitude toward practice. Dedication to practice is where it's at, across the board. It also sounds like to me you have a distance at which your mechanics are limiting you. Sometimes, even for players that have been at it for a long time, we get handcuffed by a distance that is awkward. In your case, I would guess it has to do with your arm bend at the elbow, but that is sight unseen, so I could be way off. Two more peices of sage wisdom.... Learn your discs, and how they behave thrown at different angles. Specifically, learn to manipulate your putters on a nose up release that flies dead straight for as far as possible. If you can throw a putter nose up, straight, but not super high, you will be on the right track. Also take some time to watch some of the many videos online (search YouTube disc golf) and enjoy the videos. Watching others can be beneficial. If you see someone throw a shot you like, rewind it and watch HOW they threw it. Above all, this board is a good place to get advice, so use it as a resource, and good luck.
