Player Throw Analysis
Tim Schreder
Posted: 7-29-02
PDGA # 13036 My Comments:
Tim Schreder is a pro player and was the 1999 PDGA Am Champion and has finished 2nd at a few super tour events in 2002. Tim's throw is very smooth and effortless and while he isn't known as being a huge thrower, he is able to get the disc out there with the other top pros accurately and consistently.

    Tim begins his throw with a couple of walk in steps but his final 3 steps are a traditional X-step. This is at the beginning of his X-step and he gets his momentum going quickly. His footwork is light and very smooth.

    Tim remains very light and quick on his feet entering to the cross-step. He is controlled balanced with his footwork and he carries his momentum very well through the cross-step. Here his hips are beginning to close and his shoulders are just starting to turn away from the target.

    Here Tim is at his point of maximum reach back. His hips are closed and his shoulders are turned away so his back is almost facing the basket. Tim's arm is extended back with the disc on his pull line and his off arm is helping to rotate his shoulders away. His weight is over his back foot and his hips are ready to explode into the pivot. If you look at his disc orientation, Tim's grip has his wrist down and the disc in the the nose down position.

    Tim has planted his foot 90 degrees from the target onto a bent knee and his hips are starting to rotate open. His weight is transferring to his pivot foot and his shoulders are following the lead of the hips. Tim's off arm is close to his body and the disc is near his chest. His plant is towards the front-left of the teebox and this helps to throw a nose down hyzer that flattens.

    This is at the hit. Tim's hips have exploded open and rotated his shoulders, whipping his arm through. His weight is fully over his plant foot which has started its pivot. His off arm is still close to his body and the disc is about to rip out of his hand.

    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. He is well into his pivot and his off arm is starting to leave his body to slow down his rotation.

    Tim is following-through strong and his upper body is still moving. His off arm is now fully off his body to aid in slow down.

    Tim has stepped through the pivot to relieve stress on the knee as him momentum continues forward.
