    Jon begins his throw with a couple of leading steps but his final 3 steps are a traditional X-step. He has started his X-step with his foot pointed slightly away from the target and he begins his hip and shoulder rotation away from the target early. Jon gets his momentum going very quickly and he stays quick and light on his feet throughout the throw.

    As Jon enters his cross-step, his hips and shoulders are now fully closed. Jon stays quick through his cross-step to keep his momentum moving forward.

    At Jon's point of maximum reach back, he has tremendous body extension and his hips and shoulders are completely facing away from the target. Jon uses his off arm to aid in his shoulder rotation away and he has the disc straight back on its pull line. Here Jon's weight is over his back foot and he gets tremendous push off into the plant/pivot.

    Jon has planted ~90 degrees from the target onto a bent knee and has started opening his hips and shoulders while his weight shifts forward. His off arm is tight to his body and he has the disc on its pull line very close to his chest.

    At the hit, Jon's hips and shoulders have opened and his elbow is in the process of extending. His off arm is still close to his body and he has started his pivot. Jon's upper body is leaned forward a little to get his weight over his pivot foot.

    Immediately after the hit, Jon's elbow has fully extended and his hips and shoulders are totally open as he enters his follow-through.

    Jon has a very strong follow-through as he continues his pivot and his off arm is now away from his body to slow his rotation.
