This. I tried, I really tried to give it a chance, but I just find Brodie way to annoying and over the top to finish the video.

Watching that video reminds me of rewatching old episodes of The Office.

Brodie is like Michael Scott, he HAS TO be loud and get all the attention, but mostly he just says dumb s***.

Simon is Jim Halpert. He quietly does something entertaining, then looks at the camera and smiles a little bit.

Safe lines and easily makable putts.
I thought about this as well. Also interesting to see the difference of Brodie and Simon/Paul on the course. The disc golfers all quiet and patient. Brodie the difference.

... but then I remembered his Ultimate background. There you throw discs as well, but not quiet and patient but with a lot of energy and physical presence on the field. This is how he acts (plus his Youtube persona on top of it).

Edit: and that's why I think Brodie won't be an instant disc golf talent. His skill sets have not been trained to produce reliable results. One good throw out of 50 attempts has always been sufficient. That's not a recipe for scoring well in disc golf.
Not sure, because I think he's foremost a good Ultimate player, which requires a lot of consistency in constantly varying situations. This is a well suited skill for disc golf, let's say after the drive. I think that scrabling would be his best skill. (Putting needs too much practice and driving is the most different to Ultimate.)

As well: If his trickshot percentages would be too low, he wouldn't do such videos.

I'm not saying that he would be successful in disc golf, but if he would want to become decent (which I am sure he does not), I think he could with some focussed training.

Have the two of them ever been seen at the same time?

(just kidding- AJ is nowhere near as annoying as Brodie)

This took me longer than it should have. I know now you meant Risley instead of Avery

I enjoyed the trick shot video, but I don't mind watching a Brodie/Dude Perfect type video every now and again. I could only get through one hole of the video on Jomez though. It wasn't because of Brodie's personality, it's just that it was mediocre disc golf to watch.. same reason I don't watch the Final 9 videos that Jomez puts out.
