He had some pretty bad air bounces at WTO. he has been working on them, but the ceilings are going to be really low there, he would really need that forehand dialed in.

I've never seen anyone air bounce a forehand. You mean he threw it nose up, right?

^^ To my eyes, he's not coming across level, he brings his arm down and then back up causing what appears to be, an air bounce. Plus he does suffer a bit of nose up as well.

Moving your arm down and then up will not create an air bounce either. An air bounce can only be created by moving your arm downward throughout the release. I guess the final flick could make it look like he's moving his arm upwards at the end. He seems to refer to his issue as nose-up and Paul has advised him of that (as seen in some video or other).

The more I think about it a forehand air bounce does seem possible but backhands are where it can have a really pronounced effect.

At the moment, +8 is close to his first round rating of 923. So +10 is not unreasonable considering the scores a few others with higher ratings are posting mid-round with more OB ahead in the finishing holes.

His 923 round was with only a few high rated players. I predict a 950+ rated round for Brodie.
