As we watch her journey to becoming the first 1000 rated female & 6x world champion in disc golf, I thought a thread specific to her would be appropriate. :clap:

The Las Vegas Challenge will be her first competition of the year. It's a pretty stacked field. Looking forward to seeing how Valerie Mandujano plays against Paige.

I'm a big fan of Paige Pierce, hope this is a big year for her. It's an odd year so time for her to win another World's again.:clap:

I would be interested in seeing what she would go up to if she played a full season in MPO.

She definitely has the potential to reach both milestones.

I think she would be a 1,000 rated MPO player.

this discussion road has been crossed before.

She wouldn't be 1000 rated. She is approaching 1000 rated because they are actually setting up FPO specific layouts for big tournaments now, letting the women's division skill shine through.

I think she would be 1000 rated. Paige has held her own against some top MPO players in casual rounds.
I know those aren’t tournament rounds, but I think she’s good enough to achieve a rating of 1,000 in MPO.

JK used to beat most of the MPO men when she was world champion, and Paige is on the cusp of surpassing her and EK, in world championship titles.

Comparing Paige's round ratings when the FPO division plays on a separate layout versus when FPO and MPO play on the same layout:

Separate layouts:
2020: 994.5, 37 rounds
2019: 984.5, 45 rounds
2018: 972.6, 43 rounds

MPO/FPO on the same layout:
2020: 964.8, 6 rounds
2019: 964.0, 25 rounds
2018: 958.1, 35 rounds

If your argument is that if she played MPO then she'd make different decisions, then okay, that's an opinion you're allowed to have.
If your argument is the ratings would look different by virtue of the math, then the numbers don't back that up.

Not to discount Korver and her ability - but she wasn't beating most of the MPO. She cashed at USDGC twice I believe, but was never in the hunt for a title. There were also a lot less touring MPO players back then, so it's not even a valid comparison imo. Paige has played against the MPO field a few times, and just hasn't done well at the big events.

Paige should also be passing JK anyway. She's been dominant and has already been on full time tour as long as Juliana was at her peak. She likely would have passed her last year if there was a World tournament to compete in.
