I predict Brodie will be the center of attention for the next few months as we work towards his first tournaments and then his inevitable first round feature card. And I'm okay with that. Good fun content.

Based on that last video (first nine holes of the 2020 Wintertime Open set-up) Brodie is going to be the real deal. Paul wasn't playing great, but Brodie stayed with him pretty well, and finished four ahead of Hannah who seemed to be playing fine.

They are supposed to post the back nine tomorrow. Be interesting to see if he hangs on...

I think his putting is looking pretty good and will only improve.

As far as everything else it’s kind of hit or miss.

I think if he sticks with it he may do pretty well but I’d be surprised if he finishes well in anything this year.

If he can get his forearm throw nose down, jeesh... it has some serious distance potential. I'm going to hold off commenting on the round until we see part 2. :popcorn:

bananas1023 02-14-2020 12:45 AM

he switches from the luna to the pro-d roach in the newest video and hits some solid putts

Agreed, the ultimate background is coming through strong on his driver flicks, he is throwing with an arc in his pull through, causing the disc to go nose up. He doesn’t have that problem when he flicks the zone because it isn’t as susceptible to nose angle and more forgiving. Once he figures out his drivers though, his flicks are going to bomb.

Once Jomez/CCDG/DG Guy/etc. start posting tournament coverage again, will his channel still be popular with the dg community?

I'm rooting for the guy and hope he makes a splash in MPO down the road. But it's the offseason and the dg community is starving for content right now. He's serving up bbq and potato salad and we're (I'm) eating that sh*t up. I don't know if I'll be as invested with what/how he's doing when coverage starts.

Jugular 02-14-2020 10:25 AM

If he times his videos for midweek or first day of tournaments before the next day crews can get content out he can piggyback off excitement for those tournaments. I'm pretty sure there are regular gaps in the content stream that he can plug and keep excitement going. The guy knows social media better than most if not all of the disc golf community.

I think part of the draw is that we are watching his journey. There is a story here that competition does not have. Once he becomes a regular observed phenomena in the top 10, I think the draw of the story lessens.

PoorPutter 02-14-2020 11:16 AM

Paul needs to tell him to stop throwing so hard. 80% and smooth is all he needs, like on hole #7 I think it was. I mean he birdied it and they didn't, but man he jerked his drive right from over-throwing.....and was bailed out by the beauty of the self-correcting hyzer.

As others have said, we know his Ulty forehand is crazy good. As soon as he figures it out for drivers, that's going to benefit him greatly. You can almost see he's in his own head about it. Surprised he threw backhand on that little approach on #9. You'd think he could flick that 100 times out of a 100 from just about any stance.

PoorPutter 02-14-2020 11:19 AM

It's also hilarious to watch how Paul knows Brodie's game better than Brodie knows Brodie's game. It's like teaching my daughter.....throw this disc and throw it there.....just trust me. I'm sure we've all had that experience with fairly newbs.

Emoney 02-14-2020 12:00 PM

Newest wintertime open practice video is fun. Brodie/Paul/Hannah.

Drinking game challenge.

Every time you hear "Darkhorse" or "Freaky" take a drink.

Spoiler .Paul even sneaks in a "freaky" in his commentary

DiscFifty 02-14-2020 01:47 PM

So.... Brodie just shot 2 strokes off of the best disc golf player in the world in an 18 hole round. At first I thought Paul wasn't playing even near his ability but then I saw how Adam was playing. I honestly thought Paul would have shot at least 6-8 strokes better than Brodie on that course. Anyone taking Brodie a little more serious now? :popcorn:

brutalbrutus 02-14-2020 02:01 PM

Ehh, its not like Paul has his A game right now. His putting is pretty good but that's to be expected since that was basically all he could do for a few weeks.

As far as the views he's getting in the offseason, if he keeps traveling around to events and playing practice rounds, I could see him still getting plenty of views from people wanting to see what the courses are looking like/changes in the courses.

Jolt 02-14-2020 02:07 PM

Well Brodie is playing the two guys that have won the WTO for a decade. . and he did fine

the guy is good, no question about that. . is he at +1000 level, no . . . .not yet

Not yet. Brodie has zero expectations right now. No pressure on any shot. He is probably as good or better than most people who post on this site tho. Lol

I didn't know Lance Brown made an appearance in the video.

Ok I forgot this was a forum and I should have said “won this event almost every year in the last decade “ but I thought I got the point throw without that..I was wrong

67 pages in and I still have never seen a video with this Brodie dude. Y'all carry on.

His putt is looking good.

I can relate! I like to post a lot in message boards for crocheting enthusiasts even though I don't know anything about crocheting, am not interesting in learning how to crochet, and honestly am not even sure I'm spelling the word correctly.

But I think it's important--no, necessary--that I chime in every so often to remind the others how much I don't care about their hobby.

I love the hobby if we're talking disc golf. Just don't give 2 shixts if Brodie Smith learns how to play.

When taking a stand for apathy comes at the expense of irony...

DiscFifty 02-15-2020 12:14 AM

According to the winter time open ratings of R1, Brodie shot a 1000+ rated round. :popcorn:

dorseymatt 02-15-2020 02:25 PM

Seems to me he has elite raw power, both forehand and backhand, to go along with excellent gap-hitting and general disc fundamentals. He also is incredibly coach-able. I think he'd be 1000-rated today if he could bring a pro caddie with him every round. Without that, for a while, I think he'll be everywhere from 900 to 1030 on a given round. If he plays enough tournaments and continues working at the rate he's been, I'd be betting on over 1005 by season's end.

Ryan P. 02-15-2020 03:49 PM

Paul doesn't play as well in practice rounds as he does in tourneys. Its what makes him the best. Also, he just shot -11 yesterday in round 1 of the tourney.

Brodie's scoober putt is intriguing though. I don't like the slide-away potential on smooth surfaces, but it's a great idea, and he's got touch with it. I've tried it before, but it's so tough to be accurate. On those high baskets though, or in windy situations, or both, that'll come in really handy (if he's as accurate with it as he seems).

wolfmandragon 02-15-2020 08:22 PM

Although technically not BBQ, I fixed a half rack of grass fed ribs, washed with vinegar and rubbed with mustard powder, in my Dutch oven tonight. I served it with sea salt and ghee; good meat does not need sauce.

It was awesome!

Too much disc golf and not enough BBQ. ;)

blake833 02-17-2020 09:20 AM

when is brodie's first tournament? I thought he was playing the wintertime open?

Nothing scheduled yet. He was in California for the Genesis Invitational as a celebrity/spokesperson for Genesis.

Quiet, these people don't understand anything outside of disc golf.
