This is my first time posting. I've been having some issues with timing lately and have been practicing on some parts of my game. I wanted some critique on my approach. I apologize the side angle doesn't show the full approach. I had to guess at the camera setup.

was going to say, I didn't think he was falling off too much at all. I would like to see the right leg clear to the left a little more at the line but that's just me.

I think it looks pretty good. One thing I'd suggest working on is knee bend. You slide leg is pretty straight and rigid to begin with, and you pop up out of the shot quickly after you release it. getting a deeper knee bend and being more solid at the line would give you more leverage and better projection.

a side view might be more helpful to look at your your timing.

I think you have a nice swing and seem to have real talent, I think if you lost some weight and started using your legs more you can go as far as you want in this sport.

I am recommending the weight loss because I was in your situation and didn't lose the weight and tore the patella tendon in both of my knees because I was too heavy and don't want to see the same happen to anyone else.
