Default Paul and Paige vs. The Field(s) at Worlds?

They both won Ledgestone, they’ve both had some pretty dominant wins lately, and they both seem to have a little chip on their shoulders. Well, I’d say that Paul almost certainly does- seems like he’s been a man on a mission since he signed his contract. And Paige sorta seemed like she took it personally that Cat won several tournaments early this year/people maybe questioned Paige’s commitment. And they’re both going for #5.

I’m not rooting for anyone in particular at Worlds, and I don’t want to be a fanboy, but I’d probably take Paul and Paige over the field if I were making a bet.

I'd take Paul vs the Field, I'm not feeling Paige vs the field, but I also don't follow FPO closely. Will the FPO be playing Eureka Temp?

I will take the field. This will probably be the most pressure Paul has ever had going into worlds. I will be rooting for him because i love watching greatness but if i were betting money, im taking the rest.

FPO does not play Eureka. They're playing Sunset Hills (same course they play at Ledgestone) and Northwoods Blue. As they're playing courses more suited to their skill level, as opposed to playing a Gold course like at the European Open, I think it will be a closer battle, but I'd pick Pierce against the field. Plus, it's an odd number year.

McBeth seems motivated, it's hard to bet against him. But it is a deep field of competitors. He's got the tougher road for sure, but the way he's been playing, I'm not betting against him over five rounds. Cream rises to the top.

Shocked to here this with no mention of DD touring pro men. The Dynamic Disc touring pro men should be the play against the field, lol.

It would have to be favorable for the field to get me to bet against McBeth this year. Paige seems a little more beatable on courses that are scaled a little more to the FPO field, but has seemed unbeatable on MPO gold level against her division (at least in the last couple months)

Noboby in the MPO field has really been as dominate as McBeth this year. Ricky's putting isn't what it was circa 2016-2017. The Eaglet can't close. Simon's a non factor. KJUSA maybe...but like Eagle, he's not a closer.

Kinda leaning towards Paul over the field. That win at EO proves that he is mentally tough enough to battle back, even after a disappointing round, and when competitors have been red hot. I think that stamina to keep charging in spite of some setbacks is going to be 100% necessary at Worlds. No way anyone in MPO can wire-to-wire it and win walking away.

Another factor in Paul's favor is that he's skipping Idlewild and maybe practicing extra at the Worlds courses. I had originally wondered if he might lose a step or two when skipping the Portland leg of tour this year, but he came right back and kept crushing the very top tier of competition. So after seeing that, taking this break makes perfect sense.

Who from DD do you think has a shot at even winning, much less being a favorite? Risley? Oakley? Melton? I wouldn't pick the combination of them over any one of the top 5 or 6 players on tour so far this year.

I'd take McBeth over the three of them playing best-shot triples.
