That doesn't seem likely to me. The only reason his DG career would be that short is if he either; makes a lot of enemies somehow or finds his knee injuries flare up and prevent him from competing.
If he does slow down his playing I imagine he'll work within marketing or player management for Discraft.

I was just talking about him playing disc golf. I agree there could be other possibilities for him.

Awesome! I get to see him play my home courses! The courses are no slouches. Can't wait to see in person.

Sounds like a good way to spend the next 2-3 years to me

Ok. Iíll admit that regardless of anything Brodie related I will likely try and snatch one of the Zones with the ďGet FreakyĒ stamp.

DiscFifty 02-26-2020 12:09 AM

Bro is killing it with the content. Really enjoyed the good vibes in this one. Looks like Paul and Paige were having a good time.


Jolt 02-26-2020 06:42 AM

Fun video and a perfect example of how Discraft should "use" Brodie. . show of the Champs and the new discs

and wow how far did Paige throw that Luna?!?

At least 350, maybe pushing 400

Ultimate pays nothing. Trickshot was his cash cow.

JuanA 02-26-2020 03:56 PM

Does he still do trick shot videos, or is his focus on DG now?

ejvogie 02-26-2020 09:05 PM

Ask Simon how those 2 are mutually exclusive ;)

After that last video I am thinking that Brodie is going to be used as Discraft's Eric Oakley. Colorful character to be used to promote the product. Not bad marketing, but could get annoying.

brutalbrutus 02-27-2020 12:48 AM

That's entirely possible and can you really blame them? He's got an untapped market waiting to be advertised to. Even if they only got less than 1% of his subs to start buying Discraft... that's what 10k people? That's a lot of Forces, Nukes and Buzzzes

Jolt 02-27-2020 01:11 AM

that latest video has only been up for a day and now has 90k views, so a smart move. . no way Paul, Paige or Discraft could get that many views that fast by them self

Oakley isn't a slouch though. He was just in lead card final round of a stacked LVC.

Not sure, I'd have to watch it again. I'm simply going off the reference points of the AM tee that she points to in the video and the street lights along the walking path around the lake to estimate where she landed.

Paul threw further... at least by the order that they threw.

Because the event plays to literally the only thing he can do well...power BH/FH hyzers.

Spectacledbear 02-27-2020 07:05 PM

Oakley has some nice flip up FH's aswell. I guess his weakness is more technical bh's.

brutalbrutus 02-27-2020 07:06 PM

His weakness is when his timing is off on that goofy runup/OLAY arm swing he does...

mfer throws farther than i do and has been on filmed lead cards a few times moar than i have

so whatever he does is kinda working

That must be when his timing is good...;)

Seriously though, his BH form has a lot of moving parts that all need to line up at the right time. For the most part, the top guys have smooth, compact BH form, even going back to Climo and Schultz. Even guys like Eagle and Simon for the most part have smooth BHs, unless they are really trying to rip a bomb.

Can someone like Oakley, or Feldberg and Conrad to a certain extent, have it all clicking, even for long periods of time? Absolutely. Some guys are just gifted with naturally good timing but if its just a bit off, you're looking at 40-50ft putts instead of 10-20. Or they're a few feet OB instead of 5ft inbounds.

Hampstead 02-27-2020 09:22 PM

Putter pants.

anthon has the wild run up and somehow connects a ton

and conrad needs an airplane landing strip for enough tee pad room

wolfhaley 02-27-2020 11:44 PM

Anthon has that Flintstones looking run up that looks goofy as hell. Whatever works though. I'd skip up the tee if I could throw like these guys.

I kinda noticed the same for his putting. His lower body/hips do all kinds of funky moves before the hand comes in.

You see that putter shank on the B9? That shot was bad and he should feel bad.

Yes! Let the hate flow through you!!! FEEL THE POWER OF THE DARK SIIIIIDE!!!

Vonbeezy1 02-28-2020 11:47 AM

Yeah all you 1000 rated or higher guys without perfect form SUCK! I may not throw as far or good but my form is pretty and I’d give it a 10/10 lulz

This is one of the dumbest reactions to a pro's game getting criticized. Because others aren't top pros they can't see fault in someone else game? Not true and the people who post this crap know it.

Tiger Woods had a coach who told him what he was doing wrong and how to correct it. Are you claiming if his coach could not beat (which he couldn't) Tiger he has no business being Tiger's coach?

Stupid!!

Feldbergs form is easier to time, not harder. There is less moving parts. It does lend itself to hyzers more than anhyzers though and one will sacrifice some distance.

Where I had issues was trying to judge how understable of a disc to throw to get it to flip and turn without burning. There is a reason Feldburg used to carry every mold Lat64 made. :popcorn:

If I need pinpoint accuracy, I still throw Feldy form. I no longer use is for distance lines though. Of course, we all are built different and what works for me may not work for others.

I tried that hop thing for awhile after realizing the x-step was throwing my fatness off balance and just couldn't get it right and eventually settled into more of a shuffle. Very hard on my shoe's soles though, lol

Yes!!! In 3 months I would completely kill a new pair of Merrells!


As far as timing the hop, one has to get hips turned before the hop lands. Thats the hardest part of it.
