A local park has an easy 9 hole course plus an 18 hole course(~950/blue layout) and it is great. It really helps to reduce the number of large groups on the 18 hole course.

Another benefit of having the beginner 9 hole and intermediate level 18 is that when they installed a third course at the park down the road they were about to make it a longer and harder course because they didn't need to make it beginner friendly.

Any chance media companies immediately ask him to be on Feature' cards for first rounds?
Will he join DGCR and Bro' it up?
If he finishes an event with a strong field (NT or DGPT) in the top ten, will DGCR implode?
Finish this card - B Smith, J Anthon, B Williams _________?
He's more of celebrity than a lot of the celebrities that are sponsored, so yeah.
yep.
nope.
yep.

I was there for the Avery/Simon/Brodie video shoot. Dude literally told Avery to "grab your disc golfs" when referencing the discs themselves. That 80' jump putt over the water took him 3 hours. Simon hit the 300' water ace in 20 minutes. He showed absolutely no interest in anything other than promoting himself.


Wake me up when he's really about dg and the culture, right now people who post sponsorship announcements on facebook for street team "sponsorships" are more legit in my eyes. This dude just wants to exploit us for his ad revenue checks.

Not trying to derail this thread, but I'm just glad we have people like Jamie, SpinTV, etc, that really care about "us" for the unfair exploitation in the disc golf community by setting a precedent of not taking any ad revenue for their social media video views (and surely if you did you would share that revenue with all the players) and a big shout out for not collecting "metrics" from the users that watch those videos, which again saves "us" from being exploited in return for personalized ads, info about our social media trends, etc.

"legit", "culture", "exploit", "ad revenue", seriously? I'm pretty sure "saltydiscs.com" is still available. smdh....

If someone can attempt to exploit DG for ad revenue...








...does that mean we finally made it?

Sure! I doubt he could command big bucks, but some form of plastic sponsorship for sure. I always thought his ultimate videos would be a good place for the PDGA to advertise in an attempt to grow the sport.

His overall views, subscribers in his main channel has been trending downward (his ultimate videos peaked a few years ago) he's tried a group trick shot thing that didn't pan out, his newer ball golf channel is a work in progress. For those that don't know, he's been throwing discs for a while now. I think this video is one of his earliest documented disc golf throws. It's close to 8 years old now. But he does manage to bust out a destroyer to around 250ft.

Yes, somebody please save the DG community from exploitation!

I'm an old fart but I don't even know who this dude is. Youtube is only for disc golf and music videos, isn't it?

I like Brodie.
I hope he does well.
I hope he enjoys what he’s doing.
I hope that he gets more people involved in disc golf.
Now if he could just get the Dude Perfect guys to participate, too, that would be excellent!

Yes l, I figure that I’m in the minority of disc golfers with this opinion. That’s ok.

I'd be shocked if he can't already throw over 400' consistently.

The guy is huge (6'5") and been launching lids his entire life.

Here's a novel idea: why don't we wait and see how it turns out before trying to assume his motivation for doing this? I find him kind of annoying on his videos but I'm also willing to wait and see what happens with him before judging this whole venture.
