OP, I hope you like the taste of crow. Youll be eating some. I'm not even a Mcbeth fanboy its just simple look at any other athlete. When people do things like buy homes, get married and so on they become distracted (rightfully so) he will regain his focus and crush another world title or two before he is done. Thats just my opinion.

This is the exact kind response I was looking for. I do hope to eat crow with a side of humble pie. I hope that he eclipses Climo in wins and length of career.

Great response, thank you.

Off topic: What disc did he jump putt in with in that eagle video posted on the first page? Didn't look like one of his Galactic or what ever Aviars. Did he just not use those outside the circle? I haven't watched the entire event and didn't notice.

Didn't he used to use a P2 for those kind of shots? Maybe he still keeps one in the bag...

Yeah this makes perfect sense because MJ just hides under a bridge nowadays.


Take it back, OP. You should be ashamed.

He really only had one round that was below expectations for him. And if he'd shot his rating on every round, he still would have tied for fourth or fifth. There were just too many guys having the tournament of their life for some reason.

There are more guys playing at "Mcbeth level" than ever before because of Mcbeth pushing them. Eagle spent all winter training in the mountains. So did Simon. Anykne here paybatte tion to social media? Drew Gibson is more fo used than ever and hlbent on pushing for a win. Sexton Wysocki and Koling are always there. Guys like Grady Shue, Kevin Jones, Eric Oakley, Nate Perkins, Garret Gurthie, AJ Risley, Presnell, Devan Owens all seem to not be taljed about but that'll change soon everyone is playing better, training like athletes now. Mcbeth hasn't fallen everyone else has risen up as a result of his play. Its not as easy for him because of himself, now theres a paradoxical conundrum in which to be stuck.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I hope that your future includes being lost in the woods and Banjo music... at the same time.

1030 before 1050 is a bit of a hot take. He hasn't been rated lower than 1040 since he won his first worlds, which includes during the worst of his injuries.

My take is that he's just too aggressive all of the time. The meta game is changing, course design is changing, etc. His round ratings seem (to the eye, haven't run a model) to be still at that elite 1% level, but people have learned to how to counter punch him.

He's playing like Simon used to, trying to throw highlight rounds. There are just too many more players who are making him pay for mistakes these days so he can't clear the leaderboard like he used to.
