Yeah I was attempting to be sarcastic with that comment, failed miserably too

I was at the final round of World's and was rooting for EK. He's got a complete game and is hard not to root for. I think his arrow is pointing up. Same with Clemons. I totally agree with you about Albert too. Even Risley can be pretty good. He's not as consistent as the 5 you listed but he can get hot at any time too. And don't forget about Dustin Keegan

Hope the shoulder gets better too

He placed 9th at GBO this year in open in what is one of the, if not the, biggest fields in the sport. Yeah he lost to McBeth, like everyone else did. It looks like he only played 2 Pro Masters events this year, placing 3rd and 1st. The 3rd place finish was behind Feldberg and Schultz in Pro Masters Worlds. Seems relevant to me.

I could be wrong, but I think he's the last man standing in the current 40+ crowd that could still bust out a major win, win a world championship, etc. Dude still has a roller coaster relationship with fans/media. Tough year for him in regards to PDGA earnings, less than 14k. He's pushing 50, wonder how much longer he can continue to tour full time? That back 9 at the 2014 USDGC is still amazing to watch...for so many reasons.

If JohnE can still "bust out a major win, win a world championship" (I assume you mean in MPO?), I think you have to also count Schultz and Feldberg in that category. They both have MP40 major titles more recent than JohnE's, and comparable/higher ratings.

Top 40+ players by rating right now:

Schultz 1032
Kikuchi 1032
Rovere 1030
Johansen 1029
Rico 1023
McCray 1022
Feldberg 1021

Nothing against JohnE, but he's hardly the only older guy still capable of taking down the youngsters once in a while.

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, just talking about MPO and the full time older touring players. Schultz and Rovere are definitely right there with Johne. As much as I like MJ, seems like his distance was a factor when competing with the younger players where Johne (and Rovere) still have enough distance to compete.

Never heard of Kikuchi, but based on his pdga stats he doesn't tour much. 1032 rated, very impressive.

MJ I thought has only just turned 40 for the upcoming 2020 season. He will be the Master to watch for both Masters 40+ stuff and MPO NT/PT. However it is still cool that every now and then a player whose age is in the Masters 40+ division can come out and still preform well in the MPO. I know that Ken Climo did that for a few years winning on the MPO NT stage before his injury that has kept him from even competing at the Masters Divisions.

Hard to tell when he's never played a Masters division. There may be others like him who haven't dabbled in Masters yet despite eligibility (Avery Jenkins, for example). The list I posted was obtained by sorting the PDGA stat page by players who have played an MP40 tournament in 2019. Wasn't meant or expected to be comprehensive.
