Simon is an amazing trick shot disc golfer. He also has thrown over 1,000'. That has translated to DG popularity and...?

Brodie is no Simon.

Simon is no Brodie either, just in a different way.

I think one thing that should help him get to an elite level, is course management. How many times on here do "we" get on Simon or PP about being too aggressive? He spent a lot of time learning how to play ball golf and that is one of the hardest things to learn about these two sports...


Its one thing to be able to make a shot, its another to know when to actually try it.

Aside from all the hype and speculation...

Just think how much you could improve if you spent a week with PaulM and Simon doing nothing but DG training and technique.
Priceless, just priceless.

I do. Brodie probably has way above-average fine motor skills from years of doing Ultimate and trick shots. He just has to find a putting stroke and a putter that enables his touch to take effect and he should be a competent putter in no time. This ain't Andrew Zimmern or Ben Askren we're talking about. Brodie actually has translatable skills.

Brodie is no Simon.
Simon is also an excellent putter.

Rich gettin' richer.

It's like how he casually mentioned all the time he's been spending working out on a Peloton to Terry, and Terry's like "yeah, do I look like someone who uses a Peloton?"

And I'm watching, thinking "this dude can afford a $3000 subscription-plan stationary bicycle and I'm editing video on a nine-year-old laptop and eating store-brand cereal."

edit: and driving to tourneys in a 25-year-old pickup with no A/C
