The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

On tuesday when I was playing, I noticed something. My throws totally sucked...

They would almost always go way off to the right and into the ground.

So I tried to start farther back on the teepad because at the end my foot swings forward off the concrete and onto the grass.

That didn't cure nothing.

So then someone told me to try bending over slightly, and that worked okay, but I lost major distance. Like I had to s-curve a valkyrie for a 200 foot hole. Usually I can just go straight at it.

so basically..I lost 40 or so feet off my drive :(

but on the brightside, I bought a nameless 172g pro valk for 3 dollars from some disc diver :)

it happens you'll get it back some days are just off days it happens to everyone i'm sure the next time out you'll do fine
It could be a number of factors... Was it an unusually hot/humid day?

Nice buy on the Valk by the way!
Assuming you're throwing right hand back hand, you're probably rolling your wrist to finish palm up. Instead of getting getting the snap in the hinge of your wrist by your hand, you're getting snap in the twist of your wrist that really happens in the forearm. It might not be so pronounced as to actually cause your hand to finish palm up, but you're probably twisting your wrist/forearm that way. Check and see next time you're throwing if I've explained what I mean.
