Huh. Learned a new word today. Some days I feel dumber for having read some of this stuff and other days crap like this happens. DGCR is so weird.

Definitely want to see him play a longer course now, something tough but maybe not championship level. His putting is really impressive at this stage, seems to be the best part of his game.

He's got that touch FH putter shot down pretty good too.

I'm thinking he might need a mini sponsor.

You should do a mock up of his Get Freaky logo and send it to him?...

I completely agree. And this shows what an excellent move it was for discraft to get him.

We're being given the 'Journey of the Talented Newcomer', which is a compelling narrative.

In writing/film it is the classic 'Hero's Quest' storyline archetype.

Oh, and I think Brodie is doing a great job of telling the story.

Agreed, watching his solo round impressed me. I know it was a short course but hes doing much better then I would have thought.

Paul Ulibarri did a video about this subject last year. Its not even an original idea.

He said at the beginning that he didn't take pictures of the signs because the distances were suspect. I doubt if that hole was actually 370. Tough to tell from video, but I'd guess more like 300. Still good distance, considering it was on hyzer the whole way.

That's my regular course and 18 is pretty dang long, plus you can't cut that corner much at all. Going wide like that is 350+ in the air. I can get BH out to 300 on a good day and have gotten within 50 feet once (missed the d@mn putt tho).

The distances are certainly messed up - rolling them out with a measuring wheel is on my to-do list once the weather clears up.

However, he will need to practice A LOT to putt from the rough on that course in the spring/summer. Tons of stinging nettles, thorns and fire ants to avoid. I don't wear shorts out there anymore, plus the back 9 has very narrow fairways when mowed and weeds up to 6 feet tall.
