There's 400 1000 rated players. Would be pretty disappointing if he can't crack that group.

I expect him to end the year in the 1010 range along with obviously good, but Paul still giving him 5 throws a round.

He's definitely been aided by the Coronavirus break. Months of additional training before piling tour rounds on his number. I still don't see 1010. Additionally given the smaller tour schedule moving forward: I'm not sure he'll play enough rounds to really wipe out the effect of the few early season rounds that went into his current 970s.

I could see it more if you were saying he could be throwing 1010 rated rounds consistently at the end of the year, but I don't see him ending the year in the 1010 range in terms of his actual rating.

There's a pretty big gap between 970 and 1010. It's a really tough climb for most players

If he chooses only elite tournaments with high rated players, I could see 1000+ sooner than later. If he was aided by the Coronavirus I'm guessing he was debilitated by Lyme disease.

Brodie being newer to the sport doesn't mean that his opinion should totally and summarily be discounted. It IS, however, something that definitely should be factored in as context when listening to his thoughts. Does anybody have a summary of what he has said on the issue (in the podcast with paul, at least)? I looked through this thread quickly and didn't see anything but don't feel like watching the whole video...

That's a valid point - though I'd argue the relatively few rounds he plays that are low rated due to Lyme complications would have been outnumbered by the lower rated rounds he played as he developed his feel for the disc golf discs and their flights. No way to be sure, but a healthy Brodie shot 970s at his debut. I don't think it would have been ridiculous to assume a month or more of playing at the sub 1000 level. If the 3.5 months of work between those events took him to somewhere between 970s and that 1018 first round at DDO - then he's managed to bypass a few months of regular though not necessarily every week sub-1000 play that would have impeded him in the quest for 4 digits in the 2020 calendar year.
