Might be a tad controversial comment... but I just don't see Perkins ever making the jump to elite status. He's rated 1009 now, down 12 points the past year. Out of 20 tournaments this year, he's only placed 5th or better in 4, and has had zero wins the past 3 seasons.

I doubt that's controversial, I don't see a reason why he can't return to his previous rating and perhaps a half dozen points more though. From that level he could be contending the odd Major and perhaps take down an NT or two over a few years.

Be interesting to see how Brodie does tomorrow. He's playing a c/b tier where he is the overwhelming ratings leader. 20pts higher than the next highest rated player.

Does he indeed win or does the pressure of "he should win" get to him?...

While I don't care for Brodie as a person (I tried talking to him after a tournament and he brushed me off....other pros chatted with me and Brodie wasn't busy or talking to anyone else at the time), I do respect his ability. I also respect his decision to pull out of the pro tour until he gets more experience - at least he tried. Some people seem to think Brodie 'owes' more since he is sponsored by Discraft and tutored by Paul McBeth...but that's not his fault, Discraft wants to profit off his fame/following and Paul chose to teach him.

I wanted to learn how to throw a scoober since there have been a couple of times it would have come in handy. I watched a few videos on it, but it wasn't until I saw Brodie's video that I really understood it....he did an excellent job of describing how to throw it and when/why to throw it.

I wish him the best in the lower tiers and look forward to him getting back to the pro tour.

I hope he knows what he's in for, he'll be playing against a field of local club members who can bomb and tear that course up.

Having a pro or pros rating 'overwhelm' the rest probably happens frequently....there was a B tier in May 2019 (Watson Skip). The top two Pros were:
Nathan Queen 1011
Jeremy Novak 997
the next pro's rating was 60 less than Jeremy's.

Nathan "walked" away with the win.

I wonder if it is a course that Smith is familiar with... there is something to be said for the talented locals that know every nook and cranny of a course.

I think his tactics for local events has been to show up a few days early, make a video, learn the course and then play the tournament on the weekend. This course is about 2 hours or so from where he lives so I doubt he's played it that much if at all. It's a gorgeous ball golf type course but only has 1 tournament a year typically.
