Tim Quehl Tim Quehl Tim Quehl
Tim starts his throw with a leading step and his final 3 steps are an X-step. This is at the beginning of his X-step as he gets his momentum moving forward. His hips and shoulders are partially closed.

Tim steps through with a light cross-step that keeps his momentum moving forward as his hips and shoulders close completely.

At Tim's point of maximum reach back, his back is facing the target with his weight over his back foot and ready to push off into his plant/pivot. Here he has the disc committed to a slight hyzer angle.

Tim has planted his foot ~45 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 tight to his body.

Right before the hit, Tim's hips have exploded open and rotated his shoulders, whipping his arm through. His weight is over his plant foot and his elbow is bent but in the process of extending as his right foot begins its pivot.

Immediately after the hit, Tim's hips and shoulders are now fully open. His elbow is fully extended and his arm is entering the follow-through.

Tim does not follow through particularly hard, but his upper body continues its rotation.
