GK Pro is doing the FPO. CCDG has MPO Lead and Brodie's first round will be on Ace Run Productions when they are posted...https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGU...rzADzBgkFImVGQ

He was -8 thru 10 before a bogey on 11. Got the stroke back with a bird on 13 though. With 5 holes to play, he's climbed from a 9way tie in 50th into solo 3rd...:eek:

tallpaul 07-10-2021 02:57 PM

Brodaaaayyyy!

brutalbrutus 07-10-2021 03:25 PM

Looks like i jinxed him, lol

Maybe not, he fights back with a bird on 17 after a bogey on 16.

brutalbrutus 07-11-2021 07:11 PM

Had another good one going today until...

He was -6 standing on 14s tee... and went bogey-par-bogey-par-dubogey to finish -2 for the day

It seems like he's had quite a few late-round hiccups this year. As a pro athlete, it's hard to think conditioning would be the issue, and he's used to the heat in Texas...maybe his surgically-repaired knees have trouble holding up to 3+ hour rounds?

He has been wearing a knee sleeve on the left lest the last month or so. I don't think that's really the issue though cause he's had some really good finishes also...(like birdies on the last 5 holes to earn a USDGC spot at Goat Hill)

It's just comes down to consistency and inexperience. He's still learning the game's finer details. When to throw what shape of shot, FH or BH, with what disc, in what wind, on to what kind of slope/flat ground. He's also still got some nose angle issues. Combine those, add a little pressure from competing and you get a recipe for some bad stretches of holes sometimes.

IMO, it's mostly random when they occur.

I think he is saying Brodie will be elected president in 2028. Honestly nothing would surprise me in politics anymore.

Wow that's tough. honestly I am surprised we haven't seen more dropouts/impacts like this over the past year

brutalbrutus 07-30-2021 04:42 PM

Was wondering why he wasn;t at The Preserve. Thought he was signed up for it. Hopefully he can make it to Idlewild in a couple weeks.

I donít pay attention to his social media, any idea if heís indicated previously that theyíve both been vaccinated?

Not trying to make it a discussion of thatís what you get for not being vaccinated. Iím in IL right across the river from St Louis. Right now Missouri is pretty much the worst place in the country as far as delta variant spread is concerned. St Louis city and county put the public mask mandate back in effect this week even if youíve been vaccinated. The decision is going to a federal court to determine if they have authority to make that call.

The point is, I donít necessarily know if weíre in the clear yet, or around here at least. Reports have said that in our area we pretty much only have delta at this point. It seems as if things arenít as certain anymore as far as how vaccinated individuals will fare being exposed to delta.

no indication from what I've seen, but also not an anti-vax vibe IMO (from what I can remember)

I would say definitely not in the clear. maybe we're headed towards a world where everybody gets covid at some point in their lives, but I'd like to wait as long for that to happen to me as possible so that the side effects/long haul symptoms can be studied more and possible treatments developed. and that's coming from somebody relatively young/healthy

anyways, I'm trying not to get too off topic. hope Brodie and his wife both fully recover as quickly as possible

Rastnav 07-31-2021 12:15 PM

A recent mass outbreak in Mass. was delta variant where the majority of cases involved people who had been vaccinated, so it’s definitely possible for that variant to infect you even if you’ve been vaccinated. Studies also showed that those who had been vaccinated were definitely carrying virus in their nasal passages and were likely just as infectious as those not vaccinated.

The vaccines still provide very good protection against severe illness, hospitalization and death. I believe they also provide protection against infection, just not as much protection. That doesn’t mean you won’t feel bad if you get it and are vaccinated, just that it’s (much?) less likely. So, absent a statement one way or the other, the mere fact that they are feeling ill doesn’t tell us much about their vaccination status.

good summation of what I was trying to get at. I would think that if he and his wife are vaccinated, he would simply respond "yes" to at least one of the people asking in the replies of that tweet. but that is just speculation

Or at least have the courtesy to answer with a no, spinning his version of flat earth politics, supporting the decision to do so, as a touring professional athlete. I mean, if you are going to travel about the country, why waste the opportunity to spread COVID, to as many people as you can.

I think he owes his throngs of social media fans an answer either way.....it's what a good maven does.

Oops.....did I say that out loud? :o

Pretty funny how nobody wants to come in and drop Brodie's recent puke tweet but immediately wants to talk about his next feature card get. Brodie fans are insufferable, just like him.

Keller 08-04-2021 09:25 AM

Rastnav 08-04-2021 09:49 AM

Having just googled "Brodie Smith Twitter", it could be any of about a dozen recent tweets. Dude seems to get his rocks off by being antagonizing.

If he wanted to have actual conversations about the topics he is raising, he probably could, but that doesn't seem to be his goal. Seems to basically posts hot takes about specific discs being mentioned on coverage, or how bad live coverage commentary is, etc. Then he spends his time singling out and chirping at people who chirp at him.

The proverbial "dish it, can't take it" guy. Gets huffy when people post hot takes about his hot takes.

I just loaded his twitter. ... Which one? Lots of posts you could be referencing... the guy enjoys engaging the trolls/playing the troll a bit himself.

Yup. Brodie and Foundation has a decidedly crusty negative tone much of the time. Their podcast content is almost always about what's wrong with the world lately. Feel like they are about to sell me a 5 gallon bucket of dehydrated food for my bunker. Brodie fluctuates between troll and shill pretty good so I guess that demonstrates the depth he can bring them. Maybe he will get a $40 Brodie C-19 Buzz printed up and apparently people will just buy any standard issue disc with a different foil stamp for a premium so they'd likely sell out too. So say what I will, there's apparently a market for this type of stuff...

I was interested in seeing how Brodie would do jumping into touring golf, but now it's just bored and worn out. He's moved up 9 points this year, and while that's decent when you're 1000 rated, I don't think there's going to be any major jumps and he'll likely level out at 1015-1018 tops.

I'm actually more interested than before.

He has found a lot of distance this year and he's averaged (not weighted) 1018 this season and about 1022 over the last 3 months.

There was a point where I thought he would top out around 1018, but now I think he can be a 1030+ player.

...and I don't look at his social media or watch his vids or listen to his interviews, so he doesn't annoy me.:D

I'm continuing to use Patrick Brown as my baseline. Brown got to the 1020s despite starting as a disc golfer in his mid-30s and without Brodie's extensive ulti background. Given what he's done so far - I see no reason for Brodie to not achieve the 1030s at least, given he remains focused on the task.

That said, at the moment, he's at a place where I don't really care about much except for the commotion he brings which serves as a little side storyline to the parts of disc golf that I actually care about (disc golf itself). I think he will get to where I'll care again by virtue of being impossible to ignore by showing up on lead card coverage and competing if not for victories at the highest level - at least making it feel like he has a chance at some.

.

Well it's not like Patrick Brown was some regular Joe off the couch who picked up disc golf as a hobby. He was a competitive (and IIRC near pro level?) skateboarder prior to disc golf and he's Brodie sized in terms of physicality, I'm guessing 6'4-ish, at least 200 and muscled up. He threw 500+ at age 50, he's no slouch.

Oh for sure, definitely a good/great athletic background! That kinda fits with what I mean as a baseline for a guy like Brodie. Pat Brown may have a great athletic background, but so does Brodie, and Brodie is one of the greatest ultimate players of his generation. I see no reason why Brodie can't exceed him considering that last piece.

Joe Schmoe off the couch isn't doing what Brown did coming to the sport in his mid-30s. Even with tons of work.

Pat Brown is so smooth and rhythmic, Brodie is much stiffer and staccato.

But what did Brown look like in 2006-2007? Brown has been refining his game for over 15 years now.

IDK, 2011 is the oldest I can find and he smooth AF. I think he gets it naturally from his skating background. I can see Pat being a great dancer, but not Brodie.

Kind of hard to compare the two in their start in the sport, I doubt Pat had nearly as much experience throwing frisbees or a 5x World Champ tutoring him from the start and going into disc golf as full time job.

Yeah, I can see that (the footwork thing) but 2011 is also about 7 years in for Pat.
