I haven't read that in this thread. Paul put this on social media and people talk about Paul. That's all this is.

It seems some on here believe if you play disc golf there's no way you can know anything about money. LULZ

Yeah honestly $250k isn't that much money nowadays, especially for an athlete that will have no great career options after he is done playing. Maybe he just doesn't plan on having kids or something. Childless people have a lot more flexibility in wasting their money.

None of my business though.
Think about what you just said though. He purchased all that land from his father-in-law. I'm sure he got a good deal and the money stays in the family. Land is about the safest investment you can make. Not to mention, if his father in law has that much land, he probably married into some decent coin.

The upside of a car like that is it generally holds its value. Two year old versions with 5-10k on them list for ~170 range.

Not a money maker for sure, but taken care of it's not a loser either.
There is no upside. Just rationalization for owning a money pit.

Taking care of these cars is super expensive, you usually can't go Autozone and get knockoff brakes for them. I recall one of the super premium Mercedes (on Jay Leno's garage iirc, not a dealership standard model) that went for $500k (?), had $20k brake rotors after not so many miles. Another recent supercar, the tuneups and oil changes were crazy involved (taking off panels) and cost $5,000 done by the dealership.

Buy a Honda Civic or Toyota Camry, even if it's off 100% because magic, you lose what, 25K? Some better SUV, maybe $40-50k. Even if he got a top end Tesla for $100k, would have been cheaper on the long haul than this.

A lot of athletes, especially NFL, go bust within 5 years retiring because of stuff in this direction. Dude signed a million dollar contract, not $25M.

Exactly and they made much more than anyone can claim McBeth is making. Maybe there's an inheritance involved or help else where.

It doesn't take a genius.

Based on his trajectory, I think McBeth will remain very relevant in disc golf even after his peak playing years.

Do some of you really give a shixt what he spends his money on and whether it's "good for the sport"?

I never really understood the appeal of cars like that anyways......any place I drive even my truck will go well beyond the speed limit. So......what's the point? Maybe that's just me.....
