With the tweak toward a more frequent rating update McBeth and others could shoot up higher (even if only for a short period of time) perhaps a little easier, since it wouldn't have to be such a sustained stretch of success.

I wonder if he will team up with another shoe this year. Seems like the iron is hot to jump on board with UA or the like.

Also I would like to see Ogio or other golf brands getting further into the mix. Not that sponsorship is everything but Mr. McBeth is an obvious choice to spearhead that direction for disc golf.

Let's hope for more podium finishes with Ricky and McBeth - I want to see that rivalry back and relevant. Like, give me an event where they jockey back and forth only to be overtaken by one of the young guns and upset for 1st by Heimborg or the like.

A hot take because it was controversial, and ended up being dead wrong.

So does 5x mean he's washed up? It's the archer not the arrow.

I feel sick and sad and I hope Im wrong and I hope every last poster tears me to pieces with acerbic wit and irrefutable arguments against. And if anyone mentions marriage or wife, may you be blessed with the peaceful relationship you deserve

Let the flaming begin!
Pathetic prediction fail.

I thought McBeth would fall off with Discraft. I am willing to admit I was totally wrong.

Now I will spread conspiracy theories saying he was throwing wiped Discraft discs all along

How much for a roc stamped buzzz?

Serious question: will this be McBeth's last world title? I'm thinking in terms that he's not getting any younger...

The guy is too consistent. He also takes care of his body better than anyone else on tour and has more resources to do so. He has another 6 or 7 years before he should start losing distance due to age and even then, will it really matter if he is throwing 25' less? I don't expect him to get more than Climo, but I expect him to win again.
