That article is specific to running. It clearly does not apply to disc golf, ball golf or probably hundreds of other sport specific techniques.Mark Ellis wrote:A recent article in the New York Times brings up an interesting question: Is good form inevitable?

The article deals with runners but does it matter? With diligent effort do most people figure it our on their own?

Take two world champs and one of the hottest young players...Feldberg, Avery and Wysocki,. To me, their throws look wayyy different, so which has the "best form"? (all my questions are not rhetorical, please correct me if I'm wrong, I crave knowledge )

Have you met guys who have been playing DG regularly for 10+ years that can't seem to get past a plateau in the mid-MA2 level or lower?
I'm willing to bet the answer to this question is yes, and thus the answer to the question you posed is no. I'm also willing to bet you've met guys in your travels that are under 35, in general good health and can't throw 300ft.
The article states that they improved from where they started, but in the world of running 36+ minute 5k times (where the women all ended up) are not "good."
