Almost aced Hole #7, Deis Hill. Then Vid 3 slows down my X-Step, I'm just now learning it, so critique me if you can.

That's awesome man! Cool video editing. Your X-step looks great!

Thanks! I've been working on it. Still a few errors but it's a work in progress.

Your walk up looks fine, fluid and comfortable. I did notice @0:38 you can see the length of your x-step[when you cross, before you plant] is short and quick, which is good momentum and kinetic energy transfer and looks good. But keep and eye on where you are planting[putting your right foot down to pivot on] as you are taking an extra extra long step to plant which is actually slowing you down and making your body lose alot of the kinetic energy you just built up. Your plant should look like your x-step, Quick[Moderate speed], fluid, comfortable. Shorten that up so you're not fighting against your body and you'll notice immediate 50ft-75ft on your throws. Good Luck.

Looking solid! still need to flatten out that release angle some. (unless you were throwing a Hyzer on purpose (hole #10)

Yes, Hyzer on purpose, I go pass the basket if not! And Sean, thanks for that! I will work on it and post another vid after awhile!

And Sean, when you said I should shorten up my right step, do you mean after my X-Step, at my release?

Your final foot movement is a 'plant'. Where your right foot sits on the teepad to pivot. When you go to plant, you take a stride twice as long as anyother step in your movement. I have the same problem. You need to make sure you're not slowing down to plant but keeping the same stride and pace of movement throught out your throw. You and I seem to want to plant and actually stop and balance the weight we need to transfer instead alowing it to go forward. One thing I have found is to shorten that last step to where it's te same as the rest. Which you will notice will give you more of a 'follow-through' to control and a quicker snap and increased distance.

Ok thank you! I will work on it!

Yup, I have the same problem as well, I almost jump my front plant foot forward and take too far of a step forward
