The idea that someone in NYC screaming at you through a monitor to pedal faster is something to be paid for is one of the more bewildering small points of modern life to me.

Could say the sand got a gym membership with premium features like classes that do the exact same thing. Peloton just allows you to experience it at home

Some people love to be a contrarian, even if they don’t realize it. The guy is starting at a level the sport has never seen: elite level ultimate player, training and support by current elite disc golfers, sponsorship by an elite disc golf manufacturer, no time or money restrictions that would deter his training and the support of literally millions of people. All signs point to him becoming an absolute monster of the sport. Any issues he currently has, he will get them figured out.

My niece was showing me her Peloton at Christmas. It has race mode that pits one against other riders live for those whom are competitive. It also has a mode that are just scenic rides for a more relaxed atmosphere.

It's a nice piece of equipment that is great for people whom live in the office. I just think of how much raw iron I could buy for $3k

Not her actual move, the style of the video announcement. I don’t really see it, just something people have observed.

2 hole sample size, I'm convinced.

Besides, I'm not saying he'll be a clutch putter. I just think he's got the background to become a competent putter rather quickly.

I disagree. If guys that putt like AJ Risley, Dustin Keegan, and Nate Perkins can get on to lead cards than I think Brodie can too. I'm not saying he'll putt well enough to win any tourneys but I don't think putting will be the reason he's not competitive. Otherwise, McBeth is a lousy ****ing teacher.

Not true, I have been playing longer then you.

I started in Mid 2003 when Innova had 3 brands the original Trilogy and Discracft/DGA was still a new partnership. There was as well as Lighting, Gateway, and Wham-O making the better discs at the time. Yes Instep had just released its older brand of discs not the ESP set they sell now but still with only 3 discs but they were not a top brand (now even less power), not even at the Lighting or Wham-O second level of discs.
