I don't think that Paul is as good as he is because of skill. His mental game is the strongest on tour. There are a few people who are close to as strong, but they aren't as good at throwing the disc. The fact that he's in the top 2-3 throwers plus the fact that he has the strongest mental game makes it hard for him to be beat. That's also what made Climo so good.

That's rare. I don't know how long it takes for that combination to come around again, but it's amazing that we've had two of those people in the last 30 years.

The recent Worlds has 1.2 million views on Jomez Pro and they have 150K subscribers - was only 100K not long ago. The sport is definitely growing. PMcB is a major reason for this.
That's kind of my point. There are multiple of those strong young players out there who are up and comers. Is any one of them going to be that much better than all the others. Maybe, but I'm thinking the chances are better that we're going to enter an era where there is a lot more diversity among the top finishers at big tournaments.

Woah. Something rattled the beast. Paige Pierce is 4 up on him.

Could this be a ploy to get more PPV purchases?

you certainly seem to be ****ting on McBeth in every thread possible.

Dude has one blow up round and some people act like he should have died or something. Could it be that maybe he's got an injury? 15 strokes back? Wouldn't count him out if he's 100% healthy...

Plus as good as he is he's still human and can have a garbage round a few times a season. He threw a worse rated round than this last year.

Relax fanboi, I only said something rattled him. And that a girl beat him ONE round. If that’s shatting on him you are WAY TOO SENSITIVE

I'm far from a McBeth fanboy. Never have been.

You posted in like 5 different threads snide little remarks about him. That's going out of your way to just say 'something rattled him'. He's human, if something got to him - even just 1 round out of an entire season - it's not something to try and pile on the guy for. Everyone else on tour has blow up rounds, and no one makes a big deal out of those.

Also, I've been beaten by women quite a few times on the course, and it's not even a big deal.

2 different threads, but thanks for exaggerating. And the 2nd thread was a comment about a different golfer.

To get all defensive about my "snide comments" about Paul IS kinda fanboi-ish. Or it's some need to respond to everything even remotely negative on the internet aimed at Paul in a defensive manner.

My opinion is not hate. It's just an opinion.
