This is the final wrap-up of the remaining slow motion throws I managed to capture at the Nats. I wasn’t able to film the rounds, and hoped grabbing lots of slow motion throws at 240 FPS would allow the players to do some form analysis to improve their game, and as education and entertainment for all of us.

Here we can see several things in the players’ throws, not least of which is that The Great Dave Feldberg bends his elbow less than any other player on the tour, and still manages to blow everyone out of the water with his distance. He’s living proof that technique and timing is EVERYTHING in Disc Golf.

Jacko is muscling the disc on the pull through, over-closing his wrist at the start of the pull, opening his shoulders early, and not reaching back fully – and thus losing a ton of power, while compensating for it with muscle. I wish I had enough muscle to get away with that. 🙂

Moe looks like he has sidearm form which will destroy his shoulder in 10 years, so I hope appearances are deceptive.

Music for the video includes: Cameo “Word up” (intro), Andreas Vollenweider “Behind the Gardens” and “Belladonna”, plus Pitch Black “Data Diviner”. It’s all copyrighted of course, sadly.

Thanks very much to Lance Hartwell, for performing the amazing Handpan music especially for this series of Slowmo videos.

After the Aussie Open, Dave Feldberg came to NZ to win the Doubles and Singles titles in a clean sweep. As a massive fan of Dave’s game, his unequaled teaching ability, and his career accomplishments, it took about 5 seconds to agree, when he asked me to caddy for him the day before the Champs started.

The courses we played were Woodhill Black, and Waitawa Black (Plus Waitawa Coastal Black). These are both candidates for the toughest and most extreme disc golf courses in the world. Just ask Dave or Simon!

In the coming days there will be another two slowmo videos: one for Simon Lizotte, and another including the other first card, and top card players; locals Logan Papuni, Simon Feasey, Jackson Sullivan, and American tour player Chris Addiago.

It was a very fun weekend, but extremely tiring, and if 27 holes a day doesn’t sound hard, let me disabuse you of that notion! Dave is the consummate professional, and he fully deserved his victories in NZ.

See you again next year, Dave!
