The best tip, that comes to mind is : always draw to your anchor...never move anchor to draw.

Thank you, Rod. You do not suck at explaining.
That really captured it for me.

I've been getting much better at consistency by pulling through the shot. Consistent as far as being on my line. But, I'm sure I'm not releasing from the same spot in the draw, bay an inch. Just near the anchor point, depending on timing. What you describe is clearly the way to get the pull-through, and a consistent release/draw. Now, I get what Byron Ferguson was saying about pulling during the release to keep his elbow from wandering, and how to keep the anchor consistent.

Gonna work on it. You're a great instuctor. Thanks!

I anchored at the corner of my mouth, but began to see better groups, and feel the line better comming to the molar. Not that the molar is "it". The line is "it" When I "feel the line" my shots are on. Gonna work on back tension for that release.

Thanks Rod!! Guys i have been trying my best to put the stuff Rod mentioned to work. I can't believe how much of a difference it has made. My first time out on a course i improved my high score by 30 points!! Now that is a big jump. I'm excited to see how much my average is going to raise.

Rod, Thanks for all your help and for letting me pick your brain! It really has made a difference.

OUTSTANDING!  :thumbsup:  Wish I could improve 30 pts  :)

Chad ...an open mind and the williness to work hard along with the desire to improve, will get you to the next level, you seek.

 A open mind is a biggie...after a coach recomended a small change in my form, I told him...that dont feel right, he replied...of course it doesnt feel right, because you have been doin it wrong, all your life!Took me a few days to realize, just how right he was  :)
