I’m guessing his first pdga rating will exceed 970

Perhaps I need to contact you GoobyPls, before I go next year to get recommendations of where to play.
Armco and Caesar Ford both opened in the last year, and both are excellent. Definitely make time to play both of those when you're in town. I'm near Miamisburg and can be a course guide if you need one.

I want to look at it this way for a second....how many of Brodie's viewers would actually care about DG? Yes, the sheer odds say a bunch, but really? If Jomez for example put out a bunch of ultimate Frisbee content, how many of us would watch? Or care? Or immediately want to pick up the sport? It's not the right target audience.

How much really is he going to move the needle?

They were throwing golf lines, right? Betcha one of them (or a few others) could touch the 80's with an all out throw just for the radar gun. Not sure the injury risk would be worth it either And didn't Eagle hit like 86 with a PD2 roller on film? I remember the commentators being in utter disbelief.

Speed is not the end-all be-all; pitch, rotation, Yaw and OAT also come into play for max distance.

Look how far GG throws and he does not put near as much effort into his drives as the other top 10 distance throwers.

The pull has similar mechanics. Higher line due to the understability of an Ultrastar, and further from the chest due to the width. I bet Brodie is going to get distance in no time.

He plastered a pic of himself and his card on Twitter so it's open season. I think the guy likes people talking about him.
