I was practicing tossing again today and noticed that I was flicking my fingers to push the ball up rather than really using my arm. This meant that if my timing wasn't perfect the ball went in crazy directions.
Changing to this technique made a huge difference for me and gave me a lot more control over where my toss would end up. Thanks for the help guys!
