Yes, but this thread is specifically talking MPO and FPO.

I second Mike, top 5 in 7 of the 12 Worlds he played. (If I counted correctly.)

Then the other Carrie Berloger, she played in open for years yet never won the Open Worlds women title but has 2 Masters 40+ titles in 2011 and 2014.

The Biggest Upset to win was Greg Barsby, he won with less forehand then any player since Ken Climo who did not have that much forehand until the early 2000's as majority did not have forehand either. Now Greg Barsby has a good-decent forehand compared to the other top pro players.

NO doubt the numbers are there/have been there for a long time. I'm just missing the stories, the lore, from those who have seen him play. When (what years) was his "prime"?

Damned impressive.

But if you win your division...aren't you still a World Champion?

Just cuz Sugar Ray Leonard and Marvin Hagler weren't Heavyeeights doesn't mean they didn't win the World's Title.
BNM:

Of course it's still a World's title. But that wasn't my OP. I specifically said in Open, MPO & FPO. Otherwise the question is different.

Here's his ratings history. His peak rating was 1040 in 2008 at age 41. Doesn't look like he ever entered Worlds. He was already 37 when he was contending at the 2004 USDGC.

Nodland (2004 USDGC) and Randolph had or were getting engineering degrees and continue to work in that field. Disc golf was a hobby that provided competition and compensation when they were able to play. Scott Martin is another one who contended at the USDGC and may have played Worlds but his real job beckoned.
