Rough one for Brodie yesterday. Lot's of not pars to go along with his 6 OBs...

+2 999


He is beating Sexton by a stroke though...

I checked UDisc earlier thinking this might be a good course for him.

He may have figured out raw distance, but he’s still got a lot of growing to do., particularly from a strategy standpoint

He also has problems with controlling skips. I'd bet at least 2 or 3 of his 6 OBs yesterday came from that.

Better today. -3 should be in the high 1020s or low 30s.

All that is to be expected IMO. I go back to the practice round he did with McBeth—Waco I think. Paul’s coaching him on disc choice and shot selection. Of course learning a course from McBeth is pretty special, but some of it seemed almost basic. Just reiterates how green he is still.

I think that's one of the last things to come - controlling your landing angle, and knowing your control well enough to correctly select discs for landing angle. Just the progression of developing your control of the disc through the air.

There is so much knowledge of how to play the game that can only come from experience.

There really isn't.

Overstable discs finish left, neutral discs finish straight, understable discs finish right.
Faster discs skip more, slower discs skip less.

You now have more knowledge than Brodie Smith, apparently.

Different discs are going to come out of different angles into their low speed fades at different rates. Knowing the exact landing angle to get the exact action you prefer takes more understanding than your simplification. Your post is the equivalent of saying "Tailwinds drop putts, headwinds lift putts. There, now you know how to putt when it's windy."
