Maybe it's a little of both, if you're letting your throwing shoulder come forward when you throw. Are you right handed and missing to the left?

Your first problem is your a lefty. Do you fall forward while throwing? Maybe you are leaning too far and not having proper balance will throw your darts all over the board.

Make sure that your stance is comfortable and that you are not twisting your upper body.

Hope you don't mind me making a suggestion as a newbie, but I find that not placing my front foot parallel/side on to the oche prevents the upper body being/feeling twisted and improves balance. If you have your foot side on and have your weight on it, you don't have to lean very far to be out of balance, which can cause you to lurch forward as you throw. I place my foot at about 45 degrees. Find it helps a lot with balance.

That's a good suggestion coming from a newbie! Keep it going so that we may learn!

There's a youtube video of Paul Lim and John Lowe giving tips on "stance". Choose the one that makes you feel relaxed. Same thing - choose a very comfortable pair of shoes.

Try this:
Hang a plumb line right through the bullseye. Stand at the oche in your normal way and close your eyes, and then straighten your arm out toward the board and move it back and forth a little, and go through a slow throwing motion a couple of times, until it feels most relaxed and neutral, no tension right or left, and then open your eyes. If you are pointing straight at your plumb line you are good to go. If not, adjust your stance and try again. As an exercise you can also just throw very relaxed without aiming, just concentrating on the vertical, and not worrying where they land, as long as they are along the line. Focus on the T20. Important to bring your arm up along the vertical. Sort of like this:

This helped me a lot to become more steady and not move anything other than the arm.
