I know he did ultimate and that is throwing discs, but other ultimate players seem to not necessarily make the transition all the time.

But for your question....hmmm, shortened season, new this year and at least on videos making choices that I even know are not the best option...your June 2021 for overall rating seems reasonable. He’ll probably have 1000 rated rounds this year though.
What you're asking depends a lot on the specifics of the athletic movements in those other sports... Brodie, however, didn't just come from another sport. He came from another DISC sport, and one where he was at least in the conversation at one point for the title of best player in the world. That implies a HUGE inherent skill and comfort with discs coming into disc golf, as well as a monstrous demonstrated work ethic.

He must be doing something right with the fan base if the "Blame the tick!" tank-tops are sold out in all but small and medium at $22 a pop. You'd have to be a pretty big fan to buy a shirt with such an obscure reference.

He can't shut the f$&k up for more than 30 seconds, he's 32 and acts like a 16 year old.
He fits in with the obnoxious Eric Oakley and AJ Risley load mouth attention seeking fan fad, he's the bomb for a while and next year no one cares anymore.
We'll see. I gave him a chance and the more I see of him, the more annoyed I am.
Best of luck to him, but he's not selling me on any of the dark horse kool-aid gibberish.
lol.. Oakley and Risely.... Brodie is and always will be an entertainer 1st, pro athlete 2nd. But sure....I think he's fine with being an average pro golfer, but at the same time he's an above average entrepreneur building revenue streams from his original content, making deals with Discraft, Foundation and others. If you followed him for a few years like I have, he knows he's 30+, knows he needs to latch onto $omething $table long term. At this point I believe HE thinks he has found it with disc golf. Personality wise... I think he is extremely good for the sport, dude knows where the market is (growing new players) and how to appeal to them.

Do any of guys have a Discord account or follow him on twitter? If so, ask him if his rounds are going to be filmed this weekend.

I think he'll get to 1000 this year no problem. It's basically a distance thing on most courses and he seems to have it. Going from 960 to 1000 is much easier than 1000 to 1040.

Agreed, however Risley has been around the game and Pros for practically his entire life, so if he is still rounding that badly now, I don't see it changing just because Philo pointed it out. He doesn't have a forehand either, so if Philo were to point that out too, would he suddenly be able to develop one?

As for the decision making, I commented on a youtube video he was in last year, about him running silly putts and getting punished for it. Well he responded super aggressive that he will ALWAYS continue to run those putts, no matter what any one says.

We're less than halfway through 2020 and his rating has already gone from 0 to 960! I have a chance!
