Default Ezra Aderhold PDGA #121715

This is his 2nd year since joining the PDGA and has made a pretty big splash for himself on social media and on tour.

Took down his 1st A-Tier win @ The Open at Belton.

I created this thread because I think this young man has a chance at being a pretty big deal in the disc golf world. Seems like he has all the right ingredients to make it happen.

Hes gonna be a top ten DGPT guy very soon (if he isnt already). Whoever his next sponsor is going to cash in, he has quite the social media presence as well.

Yeah saw him on some of the tour skins videos, he was keeping up with the best of them, and at his age he has a great window to be getting in when salaries and tournament money are better than ever.

Ezra’s putting style is amazing to watch. Determined, reflexive, and fairly accurate. His step putt, especially. I see him get in the most trouble on his tee shot. Power is off the charts, but his accuracy, or perhaps lines, are just a touch off. Also can’t remember him use sidearm, but that may be my limited times watching his card.

Agree his future is bright.

His forehand is definitely one of his weak points. He showed that and joked about it in his video for one of those challenges (maybe the Tristan Tanner one?)

I like him. His disc videos are straightforward.

I watched him for the first time on a skin video and I was thinking "why have I never heard of him before?".
And after this video I felt like he was everywhere.

I think he has a good chance at being great but there are players with more complete games that are coming up pretty quick too.
He'll be a good face for a team and with the evergreen obsession with distance he's going to be featured regularly regardless of if he actually tips over into contending for Majors.
I like the look of his backhand form since it looks really pared down and unassuming, yet he has decent consistency and great power. Obviously he's in great shape which will have an impact on that easy power he shows.

I love his Youtube videos. Interesting content and straight to the point. I found his lasted Destroyer class video very interesting. For someone that absolutely bombs putters and mids, his driver numbers were lower than I expected.
