Default Will Brodie Smith be better than Dustin Keegan?

Simple as. Everyone's least favorite Oregonian seems like a nice over/under benchmark. He's currently rated just over 1000 at 1016. Will Brodie surpass this level of disc golf competency this year?

I voted No. I don't think that Brodie will be a scrub, but Keegan had a lot of really good finishes last year. OK, 51st at The Memorial and 83rd at Worlds might not be great showings, but they are respectable and he beat quality players at both events. He finished 38th at the USDGC which is pretty good. These fields were all loaded.

Other than that he didn't finish outside the top 25 in any event, some small and some big. Out of 21 events he had 12 top tens and 2 wins. That seems like a pretty high level of expectation for Brodie in year 1 of his disc golf career. I won't say he won't do it, but I would be (pleasantly) surprised.

Plus maybe Keegan's move to Discmania will motivate him even more.

(Now I know more about Mr. Keegan in five minutes of research than I ever did before. )

What's with the Keegan hate? I always enjoyed playing with him in Oregon and he was well liked. Just asking.

Brodie imo will be probably the fastest player to be 1000 rated. He has a frisbee background, pros teaching him and he has a ton of free time to dedicate himself. By this time next year don't be surprised if he's already better than half of the touring pros and coming out with a signature disc.

Raw ability, potentially. His drive to get better, his access to top pros, his background in ultimate, all point to potentially challenging Keegan’s game. Consistency is going to be the big question. Who knows when we will even see him play a tournament though. He’ made it clear he isn’t jumping right in, not until he feels he has all the tools and he can use those tools under pressure, in his words.
