It would have been a classy move to congratulate the winner, yes.

Right...because what he does on Instagram is more important than what he does on the course given his career as a professional disc golfer...

I never said nor implied that, and I don't know where you're grasping that from. What I did say is that it would've been a classy move to acknowledge Conrad's win. Since when has class and respect become bad things? Sheesh.

You are, in fact, implying that. Context is everything. You're criticizing him for not adding "congrats James Conrad" in an insta post thanking his fans for supporting him despite his struggles.

This criticism has been sustained despite video footage of him congratulating James on the course - aka "on the job"

My admittedly snarky point is about making a connection between "being classy" and Instagram, and seemingly ignoring the fact that he met Conrad face to face to congratulate him. It's patently silly to me, the notion that making a post for his fans would be "classy" vs congratulating the man himself on his achievement in the moment, which was met with "meh"

The guy AVERAGES round ratings beyond reach of 99% of disc golfers on their best day with lucky breaks.

Questioning anything about his performance is pretty Busch league. Thinking there has to be a wince or limp or something obvious that has an effect on play shows a complete lack of understanding of competing at a pretty high level in ANY sport. Holy crap limping and complaining and wincing is what a weak player does making excuses every hole.

As Jamie said the gallery following him was as big as an NT lead card. He was simply addressing them. Saying thank you for the support and he’s not going to be around.
I respect the man's talent, but dismissing the possibility of Paul's ego getting in his way as though you personally know him like a brother... That's just hero worship. Lots of really good athletes have played with apparent injuries.... And also, you know, played well.

I guess I just don't understand why all the speculation absent any evidence that it's not exactly what he said it was. I see no reason not to take what he posted at face value.

Of the top 3 two were not from the long/tough courses for top level pro players.

Only Paul seemed to not handle the wear and tear of the longer/tougher courses, the long full season he set up for this year, or both.

We’ll if I had to choose between a personal handshake and congratulations, or an instagram post, I’d take the instagram post lol

The rampant unfounded speculation is cringe worthy.

Guys, Paul is one of the most respectful dudes in the pro tour... He most definitely gave Conrad his due praise. It doesn't need to be acknowledged in a social media post. Cool your jets.
