Then why come to the Brody Smith thread? It seems like a lot care considering the fact that this thread has 269k views

Perhaps the same reason I peak in on FOX news every now and then; just want to know what the other folks think.

For the most part, the extent of the Brodie conversation here is from people saying that they are tired of talking about Brodie.

He does a vid or an interview and you either watch it or you don't watch it. He plays some tourneys and you probably don't watch it because he is a couple of cards back. Which is fine. And some people buy and sell some discs. And that is really it.

Brodie's last 5 rounds have averaged 1007.
The thread was dead for 5 days when this was posted. People reacting are reacting to this bump from yesterday.

The title says "Brodie Smith...", not "Only people who like Brodie Smith...". Part of Brodie's story are the people who don't like him or his super fans or who think he's not that big of deal for disc golf, which is what the thread was about also.

He's probably over 1000 right now. He has 2 more events for 2020. I don't think he's overhyped because no one seems to care how good he actually becomes. I think the more media worthy debate is how long he sticks with disc golf, mainly because of his last 2 failings in the social media world.

Surprising? Definitely surprised at 33 years old & less than 1 year playing serious disc golf he's 1000 rated. His short game/putting is pretty good though.

watching any national news media these days doesn't really give you any real indication of what anyone thinks... they are all terrible.


Good for Brodie and Discraft. Obviously things are going well enough for them right now to continue a working relationship.

Always fun to speculate, but I just don't see him getting a salary like Paul and Paige. Royalties from disc sales, bonuses from tournaments, etc, sure. Then again maybe getting to 1000 rated meant something more financial from DC.

I doubt there's any financial incentive from Discraft for him to get to 1000-rated. I saw an IG story of his a week or two ago saying something to the effect of "Only 4 rating points to go and get this nonsense over with" which I took to mean "no one thought I could hit 1000-rated in my first year and I'm about to prove you wrong. After that, my rating is basically meaningless."

Also, Brodie's social media following is probably double Paul and Paige's combined, if not more. Considering that, I wouldn't be surprised if he does get a salary from Discraft since all of his content is now disc golf.

On the pro tour, not local A tiers. Changing in the middle of the season doesn't prove any point at all. Him and his super fans were saying this would happen against the best. That's not how he got to 1000.
