elbow tight to the body
I played the Monthly at La Mirada on saturday. While on the course I scouted out a place to film a little bit for a demo on throwing the thumber. I have a handful of holes that I use the shot on, but hole# 17 on the back course looks to be the one that will be the easiest to get good footage from. The shot is 260' across a little valley with a tree blocking the hyzer route on the right. The basket is tucked in between two trees, and blocked on the right front by another tree, but there is a window that allows me to slide a thumber in from the left.
I'll try and script it out in the next couple of days so that it will flow nice for you. Probably some time later this week I'll get out and shoot it on one of my Dawn Patrol days.
Thumb Nation just won the Scarboro Scorcher finishing first in MA2. Just to give you an idea of the power of the Thumber when performed correctly, Corey Stahl one of the 3 original members of Thumb Nation has only been playing Disc Golf for only 8 months, He used his thumber all but 3 times on drives and approaches, on both wooded and open holes, with his power and accuracy his scores beat out all but 3 advanced players and he even shot better than a couple of pro's.
@Dookville ...looking foward to the demo
I don't throw an Epic....sorry. I'll be using a 175g Firebird, 153g Teebird, and something unexpected. I have other stuff, but for this shot, those will do fine.
