Everyone's entitled to his or her (hir) opinion.

Even when it's wrong.



Try the Sheik Yerbouti album, and listen all the way through. If you can't find something you enjoy, then your ears are malfunctioning.

I kid, but...dang. Zappa is a National Treasure. A man who detested lyrics in his music, but recognized the need for them in popular music, if only to be thought of as 'normal' songs.

That's a pretty fair assumption and what I was thinking too. He's going to be competitive in Am1 right out of the gate which in all fairness is still pretty impressive for someone whose basically a newb.

I'd assume if that's the case he'll be at Am Nats on the Tobog in Michigan given it's a big Discraft sponsored event.

Paul milking the pro side, Brodie the am side. Sounds like a legit strategy for Discraft.

I still don't buy it. The recent videos don't even show me someone who will be competitive in Am1 at local C-tiers. He looks like a run of the mill Am2 player right now.

He can throw reasonably far from a standstill and has a good clean putting motion. He is still throwing occasional random WTF Richard drives. He appears to still be learning the ropes when it comes to shot selection and strategy. He needs to get a lot of competitive DG under his belt quickly. My guess is that it will be unsanctioned, Discraft-sponsored events for a while so he doesn't get a crummy rating on paper.

By the end of the year Brodie will have at least a dozen Ace Race wins.

Yeah, I get that. But Brodie sure looked like he was playing bogie golf through much of that video. So I guess what I should have said is "I don't know how Brodie was even par through 17 holes."

How many holes did they even show? Couldn't have been more than 8 or 9...

Actually, I went back and skipped thru it and they did show all the teeshots. It didn't feel like they did watching it the first time. They did cut a lot of approaches and putts though. But it's not like it was a difficult course and he did seem to have several birdies.
