  • A forehand technique guide for beginners including grip would be much much appreciated. Loved the backhand throwing guide - really great content. Thanks!

  • Realy good content! This and the earlier video of the standstil throw made me realise a crucial thing in my own form. I had almost no hip rotation what so ever, and the move you showed with the hand reaching for the pocket was realy helpful to engage the hips. Great stuff and I like how you implement a bit of biomechanics and where the power actualy comes from. That part is not explained very well in other technique videos.

  • Excellent video, combined with the first video, most helpful backhand form videos I've seen

  • Why not having the upper body form in the same video?

  • I really found this breakdown helpful. I have a question for any who can help. I am having problems adding the mini X-step portion to the throw. From the stand still, my feet hit a consistent spot, but when I do the mini x-step, my feet get rotated in a sligntly different way and my lead foot is not consistently placed in the same spot causing some wild overthrows. Any tips on fixing that?

  • "If at any point you feel like you're doing it too fast to where you're like... and flying off the tee and out of the frame, you're doing it wrong, okay." ... James Conrad wants to have a word with you! Hahaha. (For beginners, James is the exception to the rule, not the rule.)

  • Nice video and explanation. I would suggest that you actually throw the disc in your tutorials so we can see the full motion. I have been watching a lot as just getting started and no one seems to ever throw the disc. I am sure it a pain as then someone has to retrieve but it would be worth it

  • This is awesome. I struggle a lot with the backhand, finding the forehand to be my go-to, but watching this video and the previous one has helped me visualize what I need to do. Just hoping my body can figure it out as well! Thanks!

  • Great video. I knew my footwork was off and that was killing my consistency. Thank you for being descriptive about why and how each thing matters. I am very glad I am subscribed to this channel and recommend it to everyone.

  • Hunter this is a very good breakdown. Good job. I first learned about the x step from Nate Sexton, this was very thorough. 👍

  • I disagree with your heal should be facing the basket. Your front foot should be planted an ready to throw and turn as soon as you plant it. Watch any slow motion videos on the pros an you never have heal towards the basket.

    • Exaggerating is the best way to learn. Most new players have a very hard time getting their hips turned away from the line especially if they plant their foot perpendicular like McBeth and others do. I have seen 0 issues teaching people to turn their foot away and several struggles not teaching that way so I stick with the exaggerated method.

  • Love it keep them coming! These are helping me better understand the mechanics of disc golf! Great break down! Maybe forehand throwing would be awesome for the next video! Keep up the awesome work guy! #foundationNation

  • Thanks! Started playing last fall w/ my brother. Since the ppl I play with were doing the xstep I jumped into into it since it got me a good 50 ft more to my throw. But after watching this video I gotta go back and work on my timing! 🙏 I love that you break every motion. I think it will help a lot of new players and more experienced players to identify bad habits they might have developed.

  • Can you do a “how to spin a disc on your finger like a nonchalant boss” tutorial video??

    Nick HuldNick Huld3 kuukautta sitten
  • How important is it to use a similarly rated disc for putting practice? If I’m throwing 10 discs, should I try to not have them be 10 different putters, or doesn’t it matter inside of 30 feet?

    • @Foundation Disc Golf Thank you!

      Jesse AndersenJesse Andersen3 kuukautta sitten
    • I think it’s pretty important for feel and confidence on the course. Would be better to putt with 4 or 5 of the same mold than 10 different ones. You don’t want to be on the course with a focus and think “man if I would have brought my Luna I would have hit that”

  • This was SO good!!! Thank you! Especially loved hearing Paul’s “pump” explained. I have noticed this form but didn’t understand the why / how behind it. Keep these videos coming!

  • I would love to see a guide on angle control. I always hear that "hula hoop" trick but when I watch pros I rarely see a difference in their posture for hyzers or anhyzers. Thanks for doing these!

    • It depends on whether you’re trying to stain hardwood or something softer. If you’re staining say, Yellow Pine, you shouldn’t need as much stain, and therefore will end up with less stain on your knees most likely. Hope that helps!
