Diagnosing a throwing problem via the internet is sketchy at best but I'm glad my suggestions helped. One day I will get to actually see what you are doing, then I can really interfere with your development. :) Good luck.
I'm a founding member of the Battle Creek Metropolitan Area Moustache Society (BCMAMS) and a fellow disc golfer. We raise money for local charities in Battle Creek with all sorts of fun events, including disc golf tournaments. We have a big fundraiser in August called 'The Stache Bash' that we always have a band come and play. It sounds like you guys would be perfect for that. Plus, before the Stache Bash we could all go out and play a round. Do you guys have demos of songs that you could send me? We'd really be interested in having a band called "That Mustache Feeling" play and you'd only be 2 hours away. Sound like something you'd be interested in? Please let me know.
Hey Mark, I know you get a lot of requests for forehand shots, but hopefully mine is fairly simple. I throw a flick forehand and it tends to stall out and die hard to the right. If I go less stable, I flip it over and it goes left (this just seems weird to me). Any ideas ? Do i need to increase my arm speed ? My snap ? Thanks Mark.
The problem is likely your angle of release. Whatever degree of power and snap you have is what you have to work with. Your power will only change slowly and gradually so don't worry about that. Work on controlling what you have.
In your perception the difference between how you throw the shots which hyzer and the shots which anhyzer is very small. With practice you will learn to throw somewhere between the two and learn to differentiate them.
Forehands have a small margin of error, so tiny changes in the angle of release result in big changes in the flight pattern. Start with whatever disc you are best at making fly flat and straight during the flight (don't worry about the bend at the end of the flight at this point). Just try to throw it flat and straight. Don't worry about how far it goes or if it is on the exact line you want:just flat and straight.
Once you release a shot, good or bad, watch what it does and think about what you did to create that flight. Once you throw a good shot you will notice that your release was flat and your balance was good (the disc never lies). Pause for a moment to memorize what you did. You need to develop muscle memory to repeat this as needed.
As you develop the ability to throw flat and straight you will start to notice small differences in what you do that create slight hyzers or anhyzers. Most shots you want during a round are basically flat and straight with small variations that impact how the disc finishes. Good luck.
What's happening in Mt Pleasant? Let me know if anything's happening on the broadcast front. I've got a line on a contact in the area and am wondering whether I should call or not. Hope all is well, I know there's a new course in the area so that should be sweet.
No sign of any DGL broadcasts on the MAC3 website. Lots of LaRouche but no disc golf on the schedule. With the new courses in the ground, some extra pub on TV might go a long way (esp. with the Northern Waters series listed in epi 30 calendar segment).
Drop me a line if you get anything going (or find someone who wants to) and I'll add you back on to ye olde mailing list.
So how many of your guys are going tomorrow? I tried to get Dustin and Sean to go but we have a benefit party going on for Dustins cousin. He was recently diagnosed with Cancer, its gunna be Saturday evening. Im trying to get a couple of friends to go but so far no such luck. Hows the arm feeling btw? I recently bought a few new discs. Improved my game by 3-5 strokes and Im loving it! lol Get back to me and let me know whats up..
