QA12: Is a Drop a Throw?
Q: My throwing hand bumped a tree branch during my backswing knocking the disc to the ground, and the disc rolled forward of my lie. Was that a throw?
A: No. The throw begins when movement of the disc in the intended direction begins. A disc dropped or knocked out before or during a backswing does not count as a throw.
Applicable Rules: 800 Definitions ("Throw")


PDGA Definitions wrote:
Practice Throw: During a round, the projection of a disc of a distance greater than two meters, or of any distance toward a target, intentional or not, which does not change the player's lie, either because it did not occur from the teeing area or the lie, or because the player had already thrown competitively from the teeing area or the lie. Throws that are re-thrown in accordance with the rules are not practice throws. Provisional throws made pursuant to 803.01 C and 803.01 D (3) are not practice throws. A player shall receive a penalty for a practice throw in accordance with sections 803.01 B or Competition Manual 1.5 B (1).

Well would you look at that.

Good to know I suppose, not that it mattered in the end anyways.

Am I right in that it was a practice throw?

More than 2 metres. I think the within 2 metres is IF it was toward a target.

I am still trying to figure out how the disc was back and left for a RHFH.....just slipped out right at the end of the follow through? Sounds like a stroke

From the description Dros posted though, it sounds like he lost hold of the disc during a practice motion during the forward motion part of the throw. Almost like severe griplock. Interesting

So he's ok because it was his "backswing" then. I re read Andros description. I wondered how it got behind him and to the left.

Agreed. If it was the backswing then, yes, no stroke. This was a forward motion and release(unintended). Stoke'm being evil

Scared or scarred? Both work well in this instance.
