let your free arm hang down by your side, arm speed back slap'
more snap
A few things you can try: - play with guys that are better than you(make sure you watch them throw) - watch videos of the pros - have a friend take a few videos of your drive so you can see where the problem is - Practice - drink more beer(at least you will have an excuse) - sell your soul to the DG devil :)
Hold on tighter, throw harder, use four fingers and get that snap.
I started out with drivers-ed. then quickly moved on to driving around a parking lot and pulling the E-brake when it rained. I swear it made me a better driver.

I've only hit 1 mailbox, 2 kids on a moped, a school bus, and a small tree. only 3 of those were my fault too.

umm. oops. wrong driving?


but seriously, without seeing your form it's hard to say.

are you pulling your drive straight across your chest? IDK ?
I laugh at these every time I see them. I throw further than 90% of the people who play disc golf, can you help me get more distance. I saw an interesting pole of like 5k disc golfers and the average drive was only 293. that's feet! I think a better question is this: "I throw 350 feet on average drives, can you help me be more accurate?" I guess this is a little of my own frustration (My long drives are 250) showing through. I figured after 5 months of playing I would be throwing 300 feet. At least I'm accurate though...
so you think getting four finger on it will provide moe snap. i use three for the most part. i come across my chest every throw or at least i try to. thanks for the help and if anyone else has ideas, hit me up. thanks
work on weight transfer and a smooth steady pull through. Don't try to muscle it. Just concentrate on the pull through making sure your edge is down and you pull straight across your chest. Hips are a big factor if your not rotating your hips it robs distance. You're driving 350 feet so I'm sure you doing all of these. Just keep working on it. Check out Dan Beato's driving technique video..It's on here some where.

A strong pull through the whip/rip. And constant concentration on the wall of the rim where your finger pads are gripping. This is where the disc rips from. This concentration will allow you to feel and time the rip. This is all you need to throw farther than 300ft. For accuracy, you will need to feel where the rip is going, how the disc is oriented when it is ripping, and where it is when it starts ripping. Accuracy comes second.
