Agreed, but first hand knowledge does not excuse asinine comments.

You are not exploiting us by being a course designer anymore than a local Pro making some money by winning events. Being "serious" about disc golf is not a prerequisite to participate in the sport, whether for financial gain or simple fun.

No, because on the other side of the coin you would have to retire a small novel of over used words.

Define exploit. I tend to agree with him about BS.

What I should have said is they cannot drive a car. With discs many of them do drive quite well. 50/50 if I can win a round with them

In the very early days, guts was as big, if not bigger than disc golf. I purchased the first 3 discs I ever bought from a guts guy.

I think Brodie has a bag that about 50% of the discs would be legal for the Retro Class, the type of discs that are missing the beveled edge. That or he uses heavily the Condor and similar larger then 180 gram diameter disc golf discs for his game.

My prediction for the Brodhim:

- Won't even get a sniff of the top 20 in any major tourney. Not even close.
- Courtesy violations.
- Selfies
- Instagram
- Distracting camera crew
- Looses interest after half a season

Like him or hate him I think this sport needs more personality and he will provide oodles of that.

Fewer silent Heimburgs, sure. But Bro D Smith types aren't the solution either.

Doesn't this guy play ball golf too? I'm sure has some idea about on course etiquette...
