Well aware, but a more experienced pro might be able to stop the bleeding a little easier than him.

Maybe. Maybe not. We'll see. Brodie's no different than anyone else when scrambling. He has all the GOOT shots due to his Ultimate background.

Brodie is going to get wrecked at Idlewild. I don't believe he has the course management experience to handle this track.

I'll put up 3 of my tour series discs that he shoots above 925 ("low 900s") each round to all comers. Anyone interested in this action, and only this action, please post below with what you're putting up as your ante. I will answer no further questions about my predictions.

I'd take that action except I think you're right... my guesses:

942, 979, 964

It took more or less a +16 84 to shoot around 900 last year...

The weather will be good with light to moderate winds all weekend, he would have to blow up pretty hard to shoot that high.

I think he'll break 920, but won't be competitively relevant.

I doubt he'll be competitively relevant on tour for another year or two, if he really ever is on a consistent basis. He's already 32 and has a bad knee. He has a lot of shot shaping and disc manipulation to learn on top of just getting the consistent release you need to play with the big dogs on a weekly basis. He does seem to have a lot of drive to get there though, so who knows how far he can take it. He's sure come a lot farther, faster than I thought he would.

I just think its interesting watching a guy with his potential learn the game in front of all of us.

Need to lay odds if you want anyone to take this sucker bet. It is really hard to shoot outlier round ratings (either high or low) on big tough courses...
