There's a guy I play with quite often that plays ultimate every week. He's got the best "finesse game" I've ever seen. The way he can air bounce a putter is not only fun to watch, but is very useful when you can control it the way he does. I've tried working on it in a field with a bunch of putters, and I still can't get the hang of it. His form reminds me A LOT of Ken Jarvis. Everytime I watch the 2003 NT video, I can't help but notice the similarity.
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.

You don't have to "play" the game in the sense of being in a league or on a team or anything. Just get an ultimate disc and play catch with it. It'll feel weird to you, but it's more beach friendly than any golf disc.
The game or the disc will really help you with forehands ... a lot.
I played ultimate for 7 years before taking up golf and I think it really helped.
Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.

It's all about my 80 gram silver state stamped magnet for catch.
