Will be interesting to see for sure.
Connor McGregor proved that a fighter can go toe to toe with a boxer though, even if he gets beat in the end. Nobody thought he'd make it 10 rounds.

My belief is they made sure it went 10 rounds.

Maybe so. But did you watch the fight? Connor got his butt whooped those last few rounds, but managed to stick it out and take it to the end.

I didnt have high hopes for Brodie but then i watched his ball golf video with Jon Rahm.

To play ball golf that well after 4 months, at a desert course, is impressive to say the least.
I dont think he will be a "Elite" disc golfer but i can see him being a pro rated player pretty quickly

After seeing his progress, I think Brodie will end up being as good at disc golf as wants to be.

I wonder with his manic type behavior if he'll have the patience for three days of four hour rounds.

Nope.

Lloyd is rated 751 and according to the PDGA is a "professional." Therefor he is "Pro rated."

Wow. 751. No offense, but any able bodied man with a hint of athletic ability should be able to acheive a rating higher than that. Especially with the amount of tourney experience that he has.

Edit: I guess he might have some physical limitations that are affecting his performance.
