Leaning into your throw is a rookie habit. I thought he was an experienced disc player already?
That doesn't sound like it.

Looks like he will need to play at least 1 small event... and that's if he doesn't tank it...

Upon the recommendation of the PDGA Majors and National Tour Committee, the PDGA Board of Directors has approved a minimum rating threshold for competition in the Open (MPO) division at PDGA Major and Elite Series events in 2020.

In order to compete in the MPO division at these tournaments, players must be rated 900 or better at the time they register for the event.

The implementation of this ratings minimum was added to the 2020 PDGA Tour Standards and will be in effect at PDGA Majors with an Open field (PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships, European Open, United States Disc Golf Championship) and all PDGA National Tour and Disc Golf Pro Tour events. If a player’s rating falls below this threshold between the time they register and the beginning of the event, they may still compete in the tournament.

Any questions regarding this policy can be directed to the PDGA Tour Manager.

Didn't look "wildly inconsistent" to me, but I'm also a noob so I might be speaking out of turn. Many of the discs he had never thrown before, too.

What I will say is that he certainly did not look ready to enter a top class event. He looked like a really, really gifted beginner with top potential, which is exactly what he is. I think the hype-eaters are going to be very disappointed that he doesn't come out ready to beat the pros.

He throws like the guy at the top of Intermediate who absolutely bombs but it's kind of all over the place.

Still very impressive for a guy who has been seriously playing the sport for about a month. He'll improve, but he obviously isn't there yet. I guarantee he knows this as well.

Anybody that really thought he would "come out ready to beat the pros" was delusional and deserves a let down.

Could be a habit carried over from ultimate, or him just getting used to a throw like that. Throwing an ultimate disc is still very different from throwing a golf disc .

I like how they picked a photo of him with a DiscStore branded disc in his hands. Come on Marshall Street
