100% agree.

I think it's interesting to compare his commentary in this round to his commentary a couple of years ago for the Aussie Open via SpinTV. I believe that was one of the first disc golf videos I had ever seen, and I had never heard of Eagle before. I kept thinking his immaturity came through while he talked about the round. He spent too much time talking about his own round, and was kind of sniping at some of the players I thought. It really drove home the low production values of disc golf video at the time, especially compared to bigger sports I watch. Like I can't imagine ESPN having a current college basketball player try to do color work for a UNC-Duke game.

But for this event I thought he really sounded more knowledgeable and confident. He was talking things like what situations the players were facing from their lies (which isn't always apparent just from the video), and less about what he did that round. More Eagle commentary please.

Yeah, that's what I should have said. I love that lie analysis.
