The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So, I've been throwing my drives forehand since I've begun playing this sport but I've been interested in trying to get some better distance off of a backhand drive.  Does anyone have any tips on how to properly do so?

 step to the left, twist, pull the disc, and follow through(for a righty)

I post this from timte to time. It has helped me a lot.


Watch youtube instructional vids.   They have added over 150ft to my drive.  The best advice i ever received is the back hand is a lot like pullstarting a lawn mower. and your torque comes in on the last half. The next time you throw treat it like you pullstarting the mower except allow your body to follow through and transfer weight properly

Snap a dish towel, that works on getting the snap right and it also helps with keeping the disc level.

X-step, keep the arm straight and pull straight through with it.
