His DG videos are almost like a behind the scenes look at the real Brodie when he's not in "Full on Trick Shot" mode.

I can't take "Full on Trick Shot" Brodie, but every-day Brodie isn't bad at all.

He's brash enough to get attention, but not cocky enough to cringe, plus he brings enough skill to the game to warrant respect. Finally, the way he allowed Tanner to use his own discs and push them a bit in the video... I guarantee that earned Brodie some respect from both pros and fans. Let's rewind all the way back to when Brodie first started taking disc golf a bit more serious....what...3 months? lol.. crazy...
Agree this was a great video. And something about the camaraderie and ball-busting they did in that round almost made me feel like I was out at the course myself. I really appreciated it, given what's going on right now.

I love being around other competitive people. It always has a way of bringing out a special brand of trash talking, fun and pressure. Nice to see that personal fun side being shown, I think it makes it way more relatable and enjoyable.

Okay. Gotta admit.....I'm now fully a Brodie fan. That starter pack challenge was a super fun watch. And those darkhorse discs look sick, I won't buy any, but they look absolutely awesome. I might end up with one of those hoodies if I seen one though.....

I'm with you. He is energetic, well spoken, seems to be having a great time, and the content he is putting out is just fun to watch. I am especially impressed with his videos with other pros. He seems to bring out a light-hearted side of them that isn't often seen.

And, I think he is going to be very good in a relatively short amount of time...

Brodie's first "golf" tournament. Interesting if you skim through his golf channel the overall strategy is (was?) just about identical to what he is doing with his disc golf channel. Except with the disc golf world he's obviously a much bigger fish in a much smaller pond. lol..
