I had sort of assumed that Paul and Brodie, at least partially, did that for the viewers.

I think disc golf is still at the point where most of us that watch practice rounds are watching to hopefully learn something and improve our experience out on course.

I know I do. I've run into McBeth on the course and just watched him the rest of the round to see how he practiced. I picked up a couple of things from him, and this was after 14ish years of playing.

You now have more knowledge than Brodie Smith, apparently.
Lol.

What kind of grass?
Recently mowed?
How much grass?
Type of soil?
Wind?
Type of plastic?
Landing angle?
Landing topography?
Shade or sun?
Wet or dry grass?
Wet or dry soil?
Roots?
Rocks?

Just a couple more for you to ponder.

Straight is the hardest shot in golf.

Oh! My discs must be broken. I seem to be able to throw a pretty decent left skipping flair with one of my most understable discs. Weird. I must disc golf wrong.

So, he had his highest finish in a full tour event t-13th and was 1 shot out of the tie for 10th. Biggest check he's cashed from an event, though that $900 is just a drop in the bucket for his expenses this year. Highest rated round unofficially at 1059, -8 59 which was also tied for the 3rd best round of the weekend after Paul and Calvin shot -9 in the final round.

Not a bad weekend for him... especially after that first round.
