Physics of Flight Episode 1.01: Footwork | Disc Golf Instructional Video



Danny walks through footwork and explains how to set up the lower body for accuracy and power on the teepad. Danny works with Robert McCall, Eric McCabe, Denise Cameron, and Corey Obermeyer to break down every part of the lower body during the drive and what needs to happen when.

Stay tuned for Physics of Flight Episode 2 next week!

Light bulb… Now I know what people mean when they say "closed stance". There's too much terminology out there for someone without a sports background to follow what is meant. I've literally asked people what they mean by this and they could not explain it. But it's so simple!

Your best video so far, great job.

This is what Disc Golf instructional videos should be, this actually allows people to understand what is going on instead of just telling "this is the way you should do it"

Keep up the good work I have great expectations of the next episode.

This is awesome! Question, at 4:54 does that mean a hyzer line would be diagonal from back left to front right of the tee pad?

Kudos to DD for getting Danny on the channel and producing these videos. I have learned a lot from Danny ever since I discovered his videos on YT. He is a born teacher.

Great great stuff! I teach a lot of ball golf lessons and you're doing a fantastic job. My only question is the hips being able to rotate less with the toes open? 1:55. Your hips can rotate more with your toes open than pointed inward. But I think you covered nicely by saying that it help to drive the shot with the front foot closed on the plant.

I've a question. Your last statement was that you shouldn't be pushing off with the back leg? I remember Paige P saying that after a round you should really feel it in that back leg. I figured that back leg is a big part of powering the drive.
So, what is it?

Hey, Danny. I enjoy watching your videos. I've been playing for about 5 years now. I was hoping I could send you a video of my form for you to watch and pick it apart. I throw mostly backhand. If you are up for that, where could I send the video?

This is the best video on footwork I have come across — also the first to properly explain how you actually move relative to the line you want to throw. From other videos I was somehow always under the impression that you should try and move more or less parallel to the line you want to throw, and I always felt a little weird moving towards the left corner of the teepad that pointed towards the basket (RHBH). As a suggestion, could you do a video that addresses the problem many recreational players have — including me: the practice of… Read more »

If you don’t push off the back foot what is causing your back knee to turn in/down?

Heard about this series on DGAM. Great first video, Danny! First-class instruction backed with high-quality video. 10/10 for new and veteran players alike.

Danny – why does Simon and other pros step their right/plant foot considerably more "left of the line" ? I've recently been playing with that and I feel it really creates a brace. I think my hips may be so flexible that if I don't step way out, I'm not creating a solid enough brace.

This is gay. I really thought that the video would explain mathematically the physics of flight lol

The idea of keeping the feet pointed sideways on the cross step makes sense for better hip rotation but when I watch Danny's footwork when he is really throwing, and others, the left foot is pointed somewhat backward. I"m confused. It seems like as long as the right foot is pointed somewhat backward, the hips still rotate freely.

Awesome, the right heel lined up with the left toe, or visa-versa, is taught in Martial arts as well. It's taught as the strongest position in stance to keep your balance perfectly. Again, I'm so glad you are really pressing on these body mechanics. Wrist angle and follow through next???? Please??

Great lesson. This is something as a new player I did not know.
