Depends on his goals. He’s done enough to get support to play disc golf for a living. OTOH, If he wants to maximize his income potential he needs to do more. Of course I don’t think that’s his personality. He’s not a Uli or Simon.

Not saying he isn't sharp, or doesn't get it. I think it's more that his personality isn't, "Hey, look what I'm doing. "

Not that they were born with it, but Paige and Paul both seem quite comfortable with parlaying their success on the course into discs, other merch, projects.

Eagle, Simon, and even KJ seem closer to Paige and Paul. Dickerson and Calvin seem more James.

Cat and Ricky fall somewhere in between.

Just my take.
I agree with that ranking wholeheartedly.

Next year this thread should be a guessing-with-bragging-rights thread. Shout out I think Player will move to Sponsor. First one shouting out correctly gets some nice internet XP accolades.

Cat to Westside. I dunno.

Got these in the mail yesterday.

The PmUS is unthrown, so I basically got a discounted new disc with a bit of a story.

The PA4 is well used and inked, which is exactly what I wanted. Wasn't sure I wanted to bag it, but it might be too cool not to bag. I'll definitely at least field test it.

He has the best brand of them all. Humble nice guy that is approachable and isn't trying to sell you something.

Works great with the fans, not the greatest for sponsors.

Curious, is this personal expert or your take from watching tournaments/videos?

I have known James since he was barely a teen and he is indeed a super nice guy, approachable, humble, etc, etc.
