Not much talk about Pauls great comeback that last round..or more accurate how Ricky and Eagle lost it that last round.

All three kind of had one bad round but Paul was more consistent the other 3 rounds

I've said this before and I'll say it again.

When will the sport really grow? When we get out of our own way.
Yeah but if we rescheduled we would either get trounced by cornhole or pro bowling.

I'm waiting to see the post-produced final round coverage before making any comments. I'd imagine that is true of others, as well.

By the way, the post-produced videos of the first three rounds, FPO and MPO, have been good, so props to SpinTV for that.

Jesse was on pace for 2nd place and for another try at setting a new course record on last day, it's shame that hole 15 and 18 were not cooperating with him. Considering he was pretty starstruck after first round and still managed to pull himself together for 3rd and final day.

Also, Albert Tamm was on fire whole tournament, looking forward to see more of him in future

Slightly off topic, but didn't know where to ask...

What is considered the more prestigious win? Worlds or USDGC?

You could ask this in the General Disc Golf Chat thread. And it might make a neat poll, too.

My answer is that both are extremely prestigious, but it's those World titles that get announced at events. "Now throwing, four time World Champion Paul McBeth!" (substitute Paige Pierce or Val Jenkins if you wish).

Essentially. While both are majors, not all majors are considered equal for the purposes of one's legacy. While when we get into the minutia of one's career, all of the major titles one will provide some scope as to how good the player actually was, it's the World Championships that most remember and most are judged by. Winning USDGC (or USWDGC) is prestigious, winning Worlds is prestigious, winning both of them together is obviously better.

But, how many USWDGC titles has Elaine King won, without looking up the answer? How many USDGC titles has Ken Climo won, without looking up the answer?

You could also frame this another way. Take a poll of professional players, and tell them they can win any one major each of the next two years, but only one of them. I suspect most, if not all, would say they would prefer to win Worlds twice as opposed to either the U.S. titles or the European title.
