Looking at her stats, her putting numbers are on the lower side of MPO touring pros. Her fairway and parked and in regulation numbers are better, but it is reasonable to assume that those number drop as she plays longer MPO layouts.

Additionally, even is she is 1000 rated, 1000 rated golf is a tough road for a touring player.

With that said, it'd be fun to see her play some A's and B's in open.

I'd argue the competition isn't good enough.
There's a lot of room over in FPO for some new girls to shine

2018: 972.6, 43 rounds

MPO/FPO on the same layout:
2020: 964.8, 6 rounds
2019: 964.0, 25 rounds
2018: 958.1, 35 rounds

If your argument is that if she played MPO then she'd make different decisions, then okay, that's an opinion you're allowed to have.
If your argument is the ratings would look different by virtue of the math, then the numbers don't back that up.
If she played MPO, she would play different golf. She would have to in order to compete.

I also believe that playing in MPO would elevate her game, the same way it does for you and I when playing against stronger competition.

Paige should also be passing JK anyway. She's been dominant and has already been on full time tour as long as Juliana was at her peak. She likely would have passed her last year if there was a World tournament to compete in.
IIRC, FPO and MPO often played the same tees when JK played. And JK had a streak where she posted lower scores than most of the MPO field, across multiple tournaments.

Agreed! No one has surpassed Elaine’s longevity for playing at the highest level, her entire career.

My previous post was only a comparison of FPO world championships, with EK, JK, and PP at five titles each.

Brodie Smith reached 998 last year in his 1st year of playing, so....anything’s possible.

I've been saying for a few years now, if she could putt 75% C1x she'd have a few more world titles to her name. That difference in putting has given Paige a few titles.

I get it though, I'm way better off the tee than putting. It's a curse
