Yeah, there is a reason, actually several, that I will not give the PDGA any of my money.

Could I run it any better? No, not my skill set.
Could I lawyer up a better set of rules? Darn right, I bloody well could.

Oh. Yeah, now that you mention it there is no way in hell Brodie isn't in a Champs vs Chumps in the near future.

I do think he will be knocking on the door of 1000 by the end of the year.

I think its a good sign that he is already trying new(better) footwork. Otherwise, you might see what normally happens to players when they start trying to get better. You take a few steps back before you start seeing positive results on the course. This way, he is setting himself up to be more successful by learning the proper technique as he is learning the game and its a lot easier breaking bad habits early in your career than later.

Btw, anyone else notice the Paul style back foot grinding on his putting routine? lol

There are multiple run up styles that are "correct". The X step is not the end all be all.

With his very tall frame, Brodie may be served better with a scissor step over the X step.

Yeah I do it too, helps to remember to really push off that back leg and to make sure you have a firm grip in the ground with that foot.

I mean philo is pretty tall, why would an x step be good for everyone else except Brodie?

Its not. Look at many of the Europeans. Look at Feldburg. Look at Cam Todd, look at A.J..

None of those use the X step. The X step optimizes power over accuracy. Brodie has all the power he needs on anything other than a ball golf course. He had both the fast twitch muscles and the wing span to throw pro level distance from a stand still.

Why would he need to optimize power over accuracy on his run up?

uhhh... all of those guys use the x-step.

I can't think of any examples of current pros that don't.
