Yeah I have a bad right ankle so I'm constantly off balance, something I just have to try and compensate for. Hero, I'll check your pics when I get home from work. Really appreciate all the good advice.

Haha, funny analogy but I was already thinking that today when I was practicing my x step and arm movements. Thanks for the tip.

Big Mike, I'd also recommend lowering that left arm. Get it closer to your body, that should speed up everything in sequence that follows. It looks like it's making you a little off balance. If anything, straighten it and so that you look like a "T" during delivery. Look at still shots of some of the sports best...i can't think of anyone that pulls underneath their opposite arm pit. Also, click on my profile and look at me driving hole #6...see how quick your armspeed can be when the opposite arm is close to your body. Hope this helps. Cheers, ~Hero

i use my non-throwing arm more like a sling-shot, i guess you could say. before i twist, i shove my "other arm" in towards my body for more momentum. ...watch some figure skating...notice how their spin is faster with the arms tucked in.

Yes, your left arm should be behind you. Dont pull from your armpit (under your left arm), pull from your shoulder (left side) with that arm behind and out of you way. If your left arm is in front of you and then swings backwards it will counteracts the follow through to the right. Its actually a common mistake. Hope this helps...

Thanks guys. I have been dissecting my videos to find my flaws. Definately need to do something with my rodeo hand, and ill work on my rotating back more. Thanks!

yes. keep your non throwing hand down to your side, and rotate back more in your backswing.

Nice drive right down the gut and good height. I'm not sure if you adjust your run-up when you are throwing in a tight fairway (like the one in this video), but you could probably get more distance if you started your run-up with your chest facing the target and turning around more on your x-step. Also, you might try keeping your non-throwin arm closer to your body (down to your side) when you are pulling through the shot. Overall, good result, but to increase distance, you might try those two things.
