Honestly, who cares? Im happy to see players setting the precedent of not living in a tent on tour and hope others gain the ability to follow suit. With any luck he can teach a few beloved pros how to build a successful brand/channel.

I can honestly say Im genuinely happy for that clunky clydesdale SOB for his success, Im glad he came over to the dark side and hope he sticks with DG and it fulfills him the way it has for me.

As of now, he's a +2 noncashing pro. So, there's that.

I'm also glad he's doing well for himself. I will propose an less altruistic reason why he should donate the proceeds from his livestreams.

Him donating his proceeds from live streams to a charitable cause geared towards relief of the pandemic would also be a hell of a news story. The dude has 2.2 million YouTube followers. ESPN and the MSM evening news outlets love a feel good story. It would be a giant positive spotlight for average Americans to be exposed to disc golf.

Yeah, good luck breaking into this news cycle with anything less than:

"Disc golfer discovers cure for coronavirus."

So wait... did he keep all those donations from his 1K putt video? I thought that was all for charity?

Was it? I just heard he received donations which made me think, gee I hope he donates those.

I'd be very happy to hear he did indeed donate them.

I guess I just assumed that would be the case, but after reading a few of the past comments it sounded like he was taking donations.

Maybe I just read them wrong.

I just watched the first 5 mins of the video on YouTube. He already started getting donations and made no reference to any charity.
