If he can spark this much interest, it is good for disc golf.

his status sparked this much interest on a disc golf site. I highly doubt anyone else cares.

So, a disc golf media company that could bring a couple million more views to their channel or a disc manufacturer that could possibly sell a ton of product do not care?

Brodie throws and sells UltraStars as his ‘official frisbee’. I would think Discraft wanna keep him in house if he expands.

Catch with an Ultrastar is as far as I go (like the guy below) Just into "frisbee" culture, and I imagine some Ultimate players feel the same.

I've never played anything more than casual pickup, and very little of that.

That said, I've hosted UPA coaching certification clinics and have been certified as a coach. I contributed (years ago) to the development of the 10th edition rules. I spent years involved in online discussion about Ulty and its rules. My son was interested years ago and we would go watch practices and events at KU. So, yeah, I reckon there's appeal among flying disc enthusiasts for the other disc sports.

(The folks who attended those coaching clinics got to see a veryvery large man run drills with them. Probably the only time in their lives to see somebody well over 300 pounds at the time play Ulty.)

Lots of ex-Ultimate players have the potential to become DGers. I know because I am one and know many more. The potential for moving the other direction is much slimmer.

Yep, at 61 I have no desire to run around waving my arms and yelling at everyone I see.

a million views on youtube is worth how much, $500? maybe if this guy wins a a few worlds, then he'll influence product sales, but until then...

Why not? I do it all the time, it's really a lot of fun. Especially when they're not expecting it.

Oh wait, you mean playing ultimate. Nevermind

I think its closer to $2k-$3K.

And that's per video posted? That soon adds up over one tournament.

If Brodie boosts the DG community by ten thousand players (1% conversion rate assuming one million followers actually watch), even if only for a few casual rounds and let's assume a starter set each ($50?) that equates to potentially half a million dollars of revenue to the industry.

It's not trivial and that's assuming a perfectly sensible conversion rate, it could vary a lot from that depending on how well the footage paints DG.
