Drivers do not need any run-up, I bet I could throw just as far without as I could with. It is all in the hips and wrist.
Kenny can turn it on when he needs to...
He did it last year to me at the Sun-n-Fun.
I got too close to him and he freaked...hit 25 birdies in a row!!!
(23 of 24 holes in one round...missed the first hole because the kids were talking during his drive)
24 hole course set-up.
I still got second and beat all the mortals...
Afterward his quote was "I think that may have been the best round of my career"
I think that popped my balloon!
Here is one of the putts and Fab congratulating him!!!

It was an amazing round to be a part of!!!
Agreed. All a run up is good for is to get momentum to turn your body into the shot, the only thing that it is good for on forehand is to screw your shot up. I'm sure with a run up I could get minute distance increase mabye 10-20 feet, but accuracy is gona sufer esp with a forehand turnover.
The only way i can throw forehand is with the peace grip. I used to have the same problem. My forehand isnt great but has much improved since changing my grip.
When a disc wobbles out of the gun, it means 2 things, grip & snap.
If you are consistently wobbling your disc, go back to the basics.
Stand in a stationary position, don't move.
Hold the disc in your hand with whichever grip you choose and try to throw a smooth line.
Do a quick snap, no run up, all wrist and a little pull back.
Concentrate on "smooth technique."
Everyone has thrown a baseball here, do a flip like throwing a 'sidearm to second base.'

In any sport, always go back to the fundamentals.
if you slide the disc all the way down into your "Lobster Claw", between the fore finger and the thumb, take your walk up out completely and just throw from standstill, you'll likely see that issue disappear. it worked for me. i throw a 150 class flick and a predator sidearm. i'm mostly RHBH though.
i use three fingers under rim better stability
Tighter Grip to the Rim of the Disc.
