"I was really glad I made this post so I can see how long I have been working on this change with my throw. So, right at two and a half weeks. I'm happy to say that I've successfully transitioned and learned to keep my left arm by my side.…"

"Yep, Hosfield is on BetterFly.com and is giving lessons. I don't know how feasible that is for you, but it's worth a try.   Maybe playing competitively, doubles or whatever, isn't really the thing she needs right now. Does…"

"Thanks Sean for the info, nice to hear from another 'underarm thrower' that has learned how to make it work. It has been 'working' to a certain degree. I finished 2nd at Women's Nats in Int. I just find moving up to Advanced…"

"@ Mark, thanks for the information. It is definitely going to take some time to make this change. As you said, I am certainly taking a few steps backwards with accuracy and distance right now. I am not suffering hugely in distance compared to some…"

"Hey there Sue, I am a chronic under arm thrower.  It was ingrained in me and my form by a close friend that taught me most of what I had first learned about form.  The way that this happened was, he was very concerned about the angle of…"

"Sue, The process of getting better is made up of continually making changes and adjustments.  Even 1000 rated players experiment with small changes in grip or footwork or body mechanics in order to try to improve.  So rather than locking…"

Sue replied to Sue's discussion Underarm Throwing
"That makes total sense, the part about not rotating my left side with my right side when I pull forward. My right arm is about twice the size of my left right now and I know it's from strong-arming so much to get that extra power.   I have…"

Dookville replied to Sue's discussion Underarm Throwing
"When you reach back under your arm with the disc you are freezing the left side of your body from rotating with the right side when pull forward to throw the disc, losing a lot of power in your throw. You also are having to make room to miss…"

"I have heard of Backhand and forehand throws, and even tomahawk, and thumbers.  But I have never heard of an underarm throw.  Please explain."

Sue replied to Sue's discussion Underarm Throwing
"Also, Schwebbie mentioned to me that the underarm form is a huge distance limiting factor. I noticed that this weekend, when I got stomped distance wise in an ADV Women's Group. I always thought I was ok with my distance until now :\  "

Underarm Throwing

I am trying really hard to change my BackHand driving form. I have been playing about 2 years and developed my own form which is essentially an 'underarm throw'.  I wondered if anyone else has made this change and about how long it took to unlearn this habit. Right now, all of my discs are hyzering out on me but I've been playing a lot of putter/mid rounds as well. A Pro player from Discraft mentioned to me during a round that one of the problems with underarm throwing is it leads to…See More
