The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I'm always trying to improve my form and technique and if you could look at a few drives and let me know anything I'm doing wrong or could improve. I know you can't see the flight of the disc but my main concern is perfecting my form. I did drives from 3 different angles and I don't expect anyone to watch the entire video but there should be enough drives and angles to analyze form. Thanks for the help!
I noticed the hip jamming as well, when you are planting your right foot to stop motion to start toward the hit you are landing toe first and then rolling the foot to open the hips. That toe plant is real grippy and is slowing the rotation of your hips. If you where to plant on the ball of the foot and rotate around that, your foot will open faster letting the hips release.
JJ, you have better looking form than 99% of guys out there already, keep huckin em' dude.
I watched the video.
Looks like you have the proper form.
You could reach back a tiny bit more to generate more thrust for more distance.
Back off the power and add a bit more snap and let the snap pull your body around for follow through.
Relax and smooth it all out for more finesse and control.
Try to add spin to the disc without adding extra power...like a towel snap.
At this point you should be heading to an open field and work on where the discs are landing.
You want to be more accurate and not worry so much about distance.
Work on Hyzer releases and Anhyzer releases to learn how your discs fly and when they turn.
Make sure you can land the discs where you want to be...not just how far they go.
And not just drivers...get accurate with your putters and midrange.
Learn to snap a towel...
Once the arm knows how to snap, it introduces itself into your golf game automatically.
I can take a fly off the wall every time!
This is what I did during winter when I lived in Michigan.
Every year in the spring I would throw farther than the last year because I learned to SNAP.
Snap creates spin. Spin is what holds your disc in the air and on a straight line.
The longer it spins, the further it will fly. As the spin slows down, the disc starts to fade.
Try to FORCE your non throwing arm around more...
Start your non throwing arm high (when you reach back)
As your coming forward dip your non throwing arm down and close to your body
ending it in a sort of uppercut... its important to use you other arm to generate momentum...
so start non-throwing arm high and end high bringing it close to your body and low during the pull throughI can blast about 650+ no BS...
