I like the trick shot videos, but yeah that would be immensely better if they edited out all the dumb stuff Brodie says.

It's funny to me, how trick shots use the same skill sets as disc golf, but have such an opposite philosophy otherwise.

For trick shots, you're just trying to set up a flashy looking throw, and it can be incredibly low percentage. Contrast that with disc golf, where ideally you are able to select shots you can confidently execute, first time every time. I've said it before, but good disc golf can look pretty boring. Safe lines and easily makable putts.

Edit: and that's why I think Brodie won't be an instant disc golf talent. His skill sets have not been trained to produce reliable results. One good throw out of 50 attempts has always been sufficient. That's not a recipe for scoring well in disc golf.

Came here to post this.

I get that Brodie rubs some people the wrong way with his intense personality, but that's part of what is making him money.

Coming from an Ultimate background, it's pretty amazing to see how he has leveraged his skill into making a good living outside of that sport.

Top disc golf pros could take a few lessons on that.

Hard to say how much he really is making. He started the bro5 (didn't pan out), doing the golf channel which is in the growing stage. His original site income (according to socialblade) guestimates anywhere from 7k-98k from annual youtube income alone.

The round was tough to watch. Brody is just loud. Got the feeling Paul was getting a little impatient at times. I agree though, give him some discs and pointers before ya play, he’d probably do pretty well.

The trick shots was a lot more fun to watch. Simons double make was pretty cool. And wasn’t as loud.

Brodie looks like what i imagine somebody with ADHD would look like. Always putting himself into the center of attention, shouting around, doing stupid stuff. Way too loud for disc golf.

I like how his trickshot videos went viral and more people saw Frisbee on youtube. But for all i care he can stay there.

We had my kids' birthday party at that trampoline park this past spring, wish I had known we could bring discs. That's the same course they did Paul's first Discraft in-the-bag video at - Turner Park, rumored to be closing soon. It's close to both DFW airports and likely makes it easier for everyone to find a cheap flight to meet up with Jomez.

Plus they don't allow consecutive flips, you can see that on the rules sign in the background.
