I played Ultimate competitively for a couple of years when I was new at disc golf, still play in Kansas City's Spring/Summer/Fall leagues. I'm not as serious as I used to be, but a lot of best friends are still Ultimate players so that way I get to hang out with them and drink beer.
I saw this video last week and was very happy to see Brodie put out a video with Avery, showcasing the golf side of the disc community. He puts out a lot of videos and gets a lot of publicity for the sport, so I'm glad to see him do this. He's even had a few plays put on Sportscenter's Top 10 Plays. With Ultimate gaining a lot of swing the last few years among High School/College kids, Disc Golf has been on a similar rise but hasn't gotten as much attention, at least it seems that way to me. The USA Ultimate College Nationals have been televised (recording) by CBS the last couple of years, even.
I still love Ultimate, but it got to the point where I had to choose which one I wanted to compete and grow in. I wish I could play both on a competitive level but there is just so much commitment required for either one; doing both just wasn't realistic.
