Interesting, not saying you particularly are young, but I would guess in the media centric world we now live in, the younger demographic would lean toward the same line of thinking.

You know why some of us don't really give a crap whether or not disc golf grows as a sport? Just look at some of the conjecture used by a few bored souls in this thread over the actions or inactions of one person who has positively no impact on their personal lives. You'd think Paul stole their lunch money when they were seven and they still bitter about it years later.

I really respect that he is doing what is best for his heath even at the cost of not being able to play. I ruined my baseball career by playing through injuries. Broken wrist, torn ACL, broken nose/face, and the death blow a partial rotator cuff tear.

If I’d have listened to my body instead of trying to win a few more games that didn’t matter in college my day to day life would be a bit easier. Respect to him for taking care of himself. As an athlete it’s hard to do that, but no one else is going to do it for you.

Didn't he post the exact evidence needed to shut these doubters up right in his post? It included a video of his putt where he mouths "what was that pop?" (and he mentions this in the text of his post) as he's walking to the basket, in reference to his ankle on said putt. He literally gave the evidence with his post, that he sustained the injury when he says he did.

Unless the conspiracy is he now just says things like that on every hole 1 *in case* he doesn't end up playing well and needs an excuse?

I still think he played awful and made an excuse after the fact. At no point anywhere did he indicate he was injured. No limp, no wincing, no ankle brace. Just bad throws. Not even great putting by his standard. I sort of have to call BS on the injury.

My opinion is he got in a funk, didn't think he would play well for the next event or two, decided to protect his 1060.
and why the need to lead into your painfully speculative comment with a painful comparison to Climo?

I actually don’t have Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other mass social media platforms. I was trying to be sarcastic and couldn’t pull it off.
I think this is the very reason it’s fruitless for people to speculate and hop on a pedestal over someone’s comment about their life’s decisions.

Oh for the good old days when a mans word could be taken at face value..

I heard Conrad paid McBeth off so he could win.

after round 1:

Rough start but I’m game for the fight. 54 holes left and all I have to do is beat the field by 15 shots. One shot at a time if I want this title!
after round 2:
Quote:
Execution.
2 rounds left, time to make this a show.
(both quotes from Paul's instagram)

neither of those say "I'm RELAXING, taking it easy, and I'm ok with that!" to me
