Buddy's Drive

Postby Steady 26542 » Sun May 04, 2008 8:54 pm

Please offer my buddy some thoughts on his drive. He gets 325'-350' normally and can occassionally hit 400' once warmed up. If he goes for big D he will tend to throw the drive low.

Thanks in advance.

doesn't look like he's driving his hips through.

elbow gets through late.

disc doesn't stay quite tight enough, but this is likely due to the last point.

not a lot of acceleration.

however, he does have good wrist extension.

He looks smooth. Now if he adds more speed to the steps, twists his hips faster and starts using power with his arm he'd throw much farther if he can maintain his form. In addition to the things Blake mentioned. This guy should be able to throw 24 hours a day with that kind of lack of power in the throw. After the plant step lands taking off the shock of landing tightening leg muscles jamming the leg into place will add pivoting speed. Especially useful if he can get his left leg closer to the right before the release of the disc. For flat releases he should land his plant step a bit to the right of where it does now. Not by a much.
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.

I find it hard to believe that that shot went 350. I'm not trying to diss it or anything, maybe I'm just wasting effort.

Before today I was scratching my head seeing people putting so little effort into their throws and claiming huge distances for the effort. I think I've identified some problem areas in my form and power generation. And adding a little hip action now that my back pain is a bit less of a concern. I need to video myself to see how smooth or not and how effortless or not I look like with my new findings. And to verify what works and what doesn't and how far I'm able to throw on flat ground. Hope I have as good a day tomorrow as I did today.

Give the elbow some action, the least unlikely needs some lovin' too.

Punch the arm towards the target, then follow through.

Push the elbow forward

accelerate your arm while punching your arm towards target

and follow through

if anyone is confused, I'll post a video explaining everything.
