She was a cheerleader for the Cowboys, and is a current Instagram model. She literally does "look at me, I'm hot" for a living.

It takes a ton of views to make serious money on youtube, that's why PPV is growing for some content providers. Dude just got married, let him make as much money as can from his channel(s).
Dude has a contract with Discraft, he doesn't need donations to pay his bills.

Check out his video from today, he's outside his home (which looks to be worth $1-2 million if I had to guess).

Don't take my posts the wrong way. I'm cool with him making money and having expensive things. But he doesn't need donations from people and during this pandemic he could make a difference by donating that money.

I happen to think he's the kind of person that probably gives a lot to charity. I'm simply pointing out that it would be really cool of him to do so right now in a transparent way.

Hmm. I’d be impressed and surprised if his deal netted him much money.

Just speculation on my part as I have no idea how a disc golf contract is structured but I don’t think you really get much of a paycheck. Free discs, some apparel, maybe a payout from your sponsor if you place well in sanctioned events, etc.

I’m sure he gets some royalties from his signature discs and whatnot but I’d really be surprised if Brodie made enough money from disc golf to actually make a living.

It didn’t. His advantage is that he can dedicate *all* of his time to being good at [insert sport here] and clearly has done ok for himself before he decided DG made sense. As a content creator he is playing the game he plays to a T and IMO has proven it isn’t just about being sick at the sport. There is more than one way to be successful in the DG jobosphere if you’re creative and dedicated.

I'd be surprised if Brodie doesn't make over $50,000 from disc golf this year. I can see him easily making a lot more than that.

Brodie isn't just a professional disc golfer. His contract with Discraft is obviously geared more toward being a Brand Ambassador. Why do you think he's posting videos almost daily? It has nothing to do with disc golf, this is just the medium that he or Discraft have chosen.

He is very unlikely to ever achieve a world title or any significant wins. He's tens of thousands of hours of experience behind the best and he's not a young guy. He's got existing injuries that will affect him as well. Sure a portion of his compensation is going to be tied to signature discs and other similar "pro perks" but his sponsorship is less about how good he is at disc golf than any other sponsored "pro". Brodie is technically an amateur by the way.

If the contract with Paul McBeth has proved anything it's that sponsors have big dollars for people that can drive both new revenue and increased Brand Awareness. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Brodie's deal was as lucrative as Paul's.

Brodie is an extension of the move's they have made to have both Paul and Paige under their umbrella. Paul and Paige give them the marketing slogans of being the choice of the World Champions / best players. Brodie gives them the reach to non-disc golfers. His YouTube channel had more subscribers than all disc golf related channels combined. They essentially purchased an influencer, and a good one at that.

My point is: Brodie is making good money. Really good. Probably more than you think, and definitely enough to pay his bills without him needing donations during live streams. He's making the majority of his income through his sponsorship deal I can guarantee it. Youtube views and commission off signature discs are a bonus for sure. The dude has enough followers and passion to make money as a marketing figure for any company he chooses. He decided to do business with Discraft, partly because he loves throwing discs, but also because they are paying him top dollar to do so.
