We all know Broskie isn't going to play anywhere near the level of the rest of the card. However, I'm interested to see how quickly he progresses as someone who can actually commit his time just to learning disc golf. Yeah, I'd rather see Eagle or Conrad on this card, but the ability to pull in interest from other crowds could be good for interest in the tour.

The good thing is if Brodie comes out and looks really good then all of the haters might shut up.

The other good thing is if Brodie comes out and totally lays an egg then all of the fanboys might shut up.

Haters never shut up. Even if Brodie were to hypothetically crush it -- which he won't -- but even if that happened: Haters Gonna Hate.

The other thing is more likely, imo. Even just shooting his rating, there is going to be a BIG expectations re-set for some folks.

Like I've said already, anyone who thought brodie would be shooting 1000 rated rounds out of the gate is delusional.

So let's say he goes out and shoots his rating tomorrow. That will have him on the bottom, or very close to the bottom card. In all likelihood he will play significantly better, but still I wouldn't think he'll make the top 5 cards. So, the question is then, will he have coverage on Friday? I suppose his wife walking along with a cell phone for his vlog or something, but I'd doubt any of the other outfits would spend resources following a bottom card. I'm excited to watch whatever happens tomorrow, but I've also been intrigued in this since the beginning.

The question is whether the DGPT will allow them to film. Don't they charge people to do that?.. or was that only last year?

I mean I guess its possible he comes out tomorrow and with the adrenaline going, shoots a pretty good round. His putting would have to be on and he can't get into trouble on those tight woods holes. I'm kinda worried about those last few holes though. 17 is a nightmare for a newer player. I could see him taking two or three OBs on the last two holes pretty quickly... and they wouldn't even necessarily have to be bad shots.

Though after watching that vid he posted a couple days ago, he certainly has an eye for course management and where he need to play to, to be safe.

What so many are missing is that Brodie knows how to build a narrative beyond what anyone else has ever done in disc golf.

Yes, he has earned feature card exposure regardless how he plays in the tourney.

Paul's first rating was under 900 iirc...

I guess I was wrong... they actually had the same rating. 923 lol

WHat I was remembering was Paul's first tourney, which he shot below 900 both rounds but he played much better the next event before he got a rating.

Yep, after tomorrow he won't be on a featured/lead card for...some time. Maybe featured at the next big Discraft tourney. Maybe.

But he will likely have his rounds filmed Friday and Saturday, for his YouTube channel. I'd say it's not unlikely that he has some impressive throw-in or something that generates hype. "Brodie's Top 10 Throws of the Week" or whatever.

And in that case, more power to him. I'll watch it. But also, running hard for big throw-ins will cost him a lot of throws...especially at The bEast.

What I'm excited for is that Brodie is playing with great players, and that is going to stoke his competitiveness and get him around his mental blocks as quickly as possible. And he thrives under pressure, a real competitor. This is the best possible opportunity for him to improve his game rapidly (as if he wasn't improving at warp speed already - dude may already be a pro-level putter). Smart money is on him playing okay, not great and maybe crapping up a couple of holes, but the benefit to his game going forward, I'd bank on it.
