Doug starts his throw with a few leading steps but his final 3 steps are a traditional X-step. This is at the beginning of his X-step and his footwork is very light as he gets his momentum moving forward.
Doug keeps his momentum moving forward through the cross-step as his hips and shoulders rotate closed.
At Doug's point of maximum reach back, his hips are rotated closed and his back is facing the target. His weight is over his back foot and he is ready to push off into his plant/pivot. While his arm does not fully extend, his elbow reaches its maximum back position.
Doug has planted his foot ~90 degrees from the target onto a bent knee and his hips are beginning to rotate open. This is as the beginning of his pull and the disc is close to his chest and his off arm is near his body.
This is right before the hit. Doug's hips have exploded open and rotated his shoulders, whipping his arm through. His weight is slightly behind his pivot foot but his upper body is forward over the disc to keep the disc down. His elbow is in the process of extending and his foot is beginning its pivot.
Immediately after the hit, Doug's hips and shoulders are now fully open. His elbow is fully extended and his arm is entering the follow-through.
Doug's follow-through is strong and his upper body is still moving. His back leg has lifted off the ground and his off arm is now off his body to aid in slowing down his rotation.
Doug has stepped through the pivot to relieve stress on the knee as his momentum continues forward.
