My prediction... He will beat Lloyd Weema.

EDIT: I find Brodie unbearable - hopefully he learns some etiquette as he is playing PDGA events...

He lives somewhere around Dayton, Ohio I believe. I remember talking to him once on here and we had just been on the same course at the same time.

It's a pretty good hotbed for DG. Dayton and Cincy both have thriving scenes and Columbus isn't far away and they also have pretty good DG.

Small 9 hole courses help the sport for sure. We have one here and often the 10-15yo crowd outnumbers us. They cannot drive but still have a place to play

The 3-4 guys already playing with me are all the views I need of me doinking my 1-2 10 foot putts a round. :|

I've never understood why every 18 hole course put in, there isn't also a short pitch and putt 3-9 hole course put in as well. Would be a perfect course to warm up on and serve the rec/noob crowd perfectly.

Yep, I've seen him throw discs for quite some time, but if you look at his recent form he has not progressed...that much if at all in about 7 years imop. I kept thinking why isn't he throwing 400+ by now just out of pure length of time throwing, but it appears his actual hands on throwing "discs" has been limited over the years. I'm not sure I agree with him throwing 400+ in a couple of months, but he's a good athlete, if he puts in the time...perhaps sooner than later. But the big question is, is this a short term "gimmick" for his channel(s) or perhaps something more long term he has a passion for. I think he would have an easier time being a disc golf pro compared to a ball golf pro. Maybe he's realized the same. Better to be a big fish in small water compared to a small fish in big water. lol..

Does he have "Leverage" enough to court a sponsor and would they be responsive?
Any chance media companies immediately ask him to be on Feature' cards for first rounds?
Will he join DGCR and Bro' it up?
If he finishes an event with a strong field (NT or DGPT) in the top ten, will DGCR implode?
Finish this card - B Smith, J Anthon, B Williams _________?

No.

Not a fan of his style or videos, but when I think strictly on business lines, why would a disc golf media company not want to dip in the pool of another 2 million viewers?

Even my of local courses one of them that is not beginner friendly has a single practice hole that got put in with a basket non colored unlike the others that are Royal blue Mach III. The other course in town is more beginner friendly yet still enough to it that better players not the top Amateur level on up are going to have a few challenging holes.
