The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I've only been playing for about 6 months and when I first started I drove with the x-step. All my discs went up. I watched a video of myself and realized that i'm arching my back and pulling up and back. To remedy that, I started just standing with my throwing shoulder pointed where i want to throw, and pick my right leg up take the step forward and let it fly. Since then i've bent my wrist more into handshake position and keep my left arm over my belly like i have a stomach ache. The disc flies alot lower but the most i can ever possibly get is 300 feet out of an Orc. I still have to use discs like the Monarch for anhyzer flight paths. I try to run up again and sure enough, straight up in the air. I know i will need to post a video and i will, I'm just wondering if there are some things i need to consider when doing a run up. Also, should a disc be thrown with a flat, anhyzer or hyzer angle for normal straight throws. I also seem to have a problem releasing the disc at the right time. Very inconsistent on the left to right aim. Any tips help. I play about 2 to 3 times a week and practice an additional 2 times minimum. I'm afraid of practicing the wrong thing. Thanks guys!!!!!!!! By the way i dye discs alot lately. Just started but love it. Thanks again, this sport freakin rocks. PS, now that i dyed oe of my discs, i noticed it loses it's spin rather ast and i think that may have something to do with my loss of d. What a drag

Watched it, after the post of course. I'm on my way to correct developement. Now if I could only tone down my competitive nature, i could advance faster. Also still can't putt worth arse!!
That used to happen to me a LOT! It might not be the steps before you throw as much as while you are throwing. What I mean is that you might not be pushing off/lifting your Back/left leg (if you throw with your right hand). You are probably arching your back because you are trying to throw and not push off, and then when you don't X step you do push off. Practice trowing with different amounts of push with your back left leg without X stepping and see what the disc does. I stopped doing an X step, worked on my push, and now I am doing it again. It flattened out my disc completely. Good luck, keep throwing!
