Why does the ring make a left turn during its flight after I’ve thrown?*
Your right elbow is to high. Keep your elbow next to your body and make sure your stick is horizontal. If you’re left-handed, this would be the opposite.
Why is the ring getting off to early (and ends up next to me instead of in front of me)?
You’re moving to much with your hips and upper body, instead of your arms. Keep your shoulders and toes pointing the direction you want to throw and make a pull and push movement with your arms. In addition, make sure the stick is always in front of your chest, instead of next to your chest.
Why is the ring not going the direction I want to throw?
At the end of your throw, you have to point the direction you want to throw with the tip of your stick, while also controlling your body as outlined in the questions above. Practice makes perfect!
Why is the ring going too straight, or even towards the ground?
Make a slight upwards movement, within the horizontal movement, when you throw. Start with the red tip of the stick at shoulder-height and end your throwing movement at eye-height. This way the ring is thrown slightly upwards, which makes it more easy to catch for your buddy.
