His background in ultimate is already helping him. I guess he recorded throwing a midrange 500ft the other day. 2 weeks in and hes already throwing further than I ever will.

For that particular video for his insta, I think it was the last day before he flew to discraft, so Emerson probably had him throw a driver after working with mids and putters the past couple weeks just to see, them they measured it off using u disc and it ended up being 494. Give or take 15ft or so, still about 475

These fields were all loaded.

Other than that he didn't finish outside the top 25 in any event, some small and some big. Out of 21 events he had 12 top tens and 2 wins. That seems like a pretty high level of expectation for Brodie in year 1 of his disc golf career. I won't say he won't do it, but I would be (pleasantly) surprised.

Plus maybe Keegan's move to Discmania will motivate him even more.

(Now I know more about Mr. Keegan in five minutes of research than I ever did before. )
This is the in-depth analysis I was hoping to see. The sponsor change could help or hurt, it's hard to say. I guess it depends on your opinions of Discmania (Innova) and Dynamic (Trilogy).

One thing is for certain, Keegan is an Irish name. So he's probably a hopeless alcoholic (probably why he wears the sunglasses all the time, he's hungover). Whereas Smith entails that Brodie probably came from good, Protestant English stock. His work ethic will obviously be higher than Keegan's.

Lots of Smith's in Scotland as well. After all, it's a surname taken from a job instead of a single family. Gonna have to do a 23and me to see if he has more Germanic or Celtic DNA.

I think, perhaps other than Kevin Jones, he will be the most athletic player on tour. On the other hand I am not for sure if his mental game will be as sharp as 4 of the top 5 players on tour. He also is racing the clock as he has started the game so late in a professional athletes life.

I don't know how this is going to turn out, but am very interested to see.
