She’s never watched a single form video and certainly hasn’t spent hours in the field working on weight shift and bracing like I have...yet here she is, bracing inside her posture, finishing balanced up on one leg, even the high five finish sidewinder talks about. The human body is truly amazing.
She’s rounding. J/K nice job. 👍

Didn't you injure your arm doing it naturally?
I injured my right arm from overuse. I started over LHBH and found a natural path that felt similar to swinging a bat. So far I have generally resisted most of the drills out there because most of them have some fundamental flaw that I don't like. Most of it is in the difference between what one thinks they are doing or should be doing and what really happens.

You took your daughter disc golfing...

Parenting - you're doing it right.

Good point, late night math. 2lbs is about double the weight of a normal hammer, which is perfect for slinging a heavy weight

Bertholy (the father of ball golf drills) believed that children learn just the way your daughter does, and that it's by far the most efficient way to learn a skill.

And he believed this learning mode is no longer accessible to adults, and they're stuck doing drills and slow motion mechanics.

That makes a lot of sense to me, given some individual variation of course.

Totally agree - especially if the adult has bad habits/muscle memory to battle with. I do agree with Clement in that our body’s know how to control momentum. I was playing horseshoes this weekend, and hadn’t played in a while, but it took no time at all to get into the rhythm and use my lower body to pump the horseshoe, brace, then throw. All the same stuff were supposed to be doing in disc golf but just way more intuitive.

She throws further than my wife BH, the disc went forwards at least. My wife agreed too.
