We (DFW) have a very active local pro scene, quite a few hover near the 1000 rated mark but due to the lack of higher rated players have a hard time reaching it. I've heard a few people describing "Course Pro" as someone involved with the design of the course, to someone who plays the same course often and knows all the "local routes". lol..

those things don't make sense to me as a criteria. i feel like it could apply to too many AM1-AM2 players.

just like our perception of par, putting, level of difficulty, etc is not and should not be the same as golf, maybe i'm putting too much stock in the golf definition. that said, one should at least be a relatively (locally) successful Open player to be called a local pro or a course pro, IMO.

It's disc golf. Don't over think it.

I like the idea, I think we need less artificial OB in general and maybe really punishing the bad shots that do land OB with stroke and distance but pace of play should be taken into consideration. Brodie hasn't played but one big event so maybe he hasn't had experience dealing with that.
His initial complaint about OB was misguided. "OB should be stroke and distance." "What, you don't like last spot in?" "That's a hazard, not OB."
His first couple of sentences were actually just complaining about the terminology, even though he didn't phrase it that way.

Less artificial OB? Sure, but I hate most people's arguments against it. "Disc golf shouldn't use 'artificial' OB and should use stuff like roads and sidewalks instead." Last I checked, roads and sidewalks are artificial as well. If you gave me a few million dollars per course I could get rid of all artificial OB by creating lakes and rivers everywhere and sculpting my fairways to the precise shapes I want. But instead I'm stuck in a 30 acre park with no real landscaping at all, so sometimes the OB rope gets brought out. Sorry not sorry.
