Also found an anhyser lane on a few holes, that I hadn't seen before. Now for the bad, my sidearm is ok at best and I can't throw a backhand roller at all. I am a one dimensional (ok maybe two with the thumb shot) player but this is exactly why I am still at the intermediate level with a sub 900 rating. My sidearm shots never come off clean-they always flutter-doesn't matter what disc either. I seem to recall that this occurs when the arm speed is greater than the wrist snap. Is that correct? How do I fix it? I can throw a two fingered roller but how do you throw a sidearm roller? Is that a scooby? I plan on working on these shots in the field and then reassessing on the course. I also found that my putting was negatively effected by this as, I believe, my confidence wasn't as strong so my putting reflected my mindset. Bernie
