But combining that proper form with his strength will make a powerful combo

Avery Jenkins comes to mind...but it will be interesting to see if Brodie's apparent physical/strength edge comes into play, especially if/when his form is dialed in.

His status will change to pro if he accepts cash. Then he'll be required to register as a pro next year.

He'll be a powerful looking 975 rated player, if he makes it that high. Which I doubt.

So what part of his game will prevent him from getting even to 975 do you think?

Lack of experience, bad putting and his drives.
His approach shots should be OK.

When you say drives I’m assuming you mean accuracy?

He'll do great if he gets 3 mulligans off each tee like he's used to.

I don't see why you think he will have trouble with driving. Dude can throw a lid like very few people in the world. It is a very translatable skill. His hand-eye is good enough that he should putt ok from the get go as well. If he has problems I would expect them to come from course management and pace of play.
