True enough, for a while there I thought GG was going to travel a similar road, but he obviously upped his short game.

Not as a professional. He swept BG, Am Nats, and Am Worlds in 2010. Crushed Ricky's soul enough at Nats that Ricky played a junior division at World's.

There honestly aren’t that many really long courses in dfw. Fritz park has a couple long holes, veterans has a couple, towne lake has a couple but not really a championship level course I would say in this area. He would have to go out to selah ranch or harry Myers in Rockwall to get that kind of golf. He’s also still been playing less than a month. My guess is he’s using dashes track to learn course management. Yes they are shorter holes but they’re quite technical, I have played dashes track a couple times. He’s also been testing out different discraft drivers the past couple days. My guess is field work is still his main priority but he’s learning course management on the side.

Just checked his Instagram, looks like he’s still training with Emerson as well. They were at Old Man memorial park in Lewisville, which is also not really a long course, more technical. Host to a few tournaments out of the year by Dynamic

Personally, I'm not a fanboy. I never watched a single Brodie vid until he did the 2 with Paul and Simon and those are still the only ones I have watched. My interest in this is selfish. If he succeeds, then we have another player competing at the top level, which can only improve my/our viewing. If he fails, maybe one of his younger viewers takes up the sport and becomes the next Paul/Simon/whoever...


Seems like a win/win to me.

I don't want him to fail. I don't want anyone to fail who tries to do well. For me, the closest comparison is Tebow playing baseball. I don't want him to fail. But, I'm sure not rooting for him to succeed.

I don't want him to fail I just don't think he's going to be a top rated player this year and maybe longer.

There's a c-tier flex start tomorrow at Old Man. (Friday) Maybe Brodie will play it and try to get a rated round in.
