Wow. This thread should be in the landfill. Psychoanalyzing from a distance has been proven near impossible. And yet, this thread exists.

You are right. Reading exactly what he wrote and based on his entire history as a competitor I assumed too much. I don’t know him.

You are more right. Paul McBeth has weak mental fortitude and a fragile ego.

An ego isn't really the same thing as saying weak mental fortitude. I think he almost always plays insanely well under pressure. Obviously a natural competitor who is unflustered by pressure. An ego might not be a big stretch, however.

Maybe I haven't been following this close enough, but someone actually suggested this?

Whilst McBeth is not the best in any one category, what makes him so hard to beat is he is good in all of them. It would be very hard to design a course just to handicap him.

This being the premier event of the year, I do expect the staff to balance the course from year to year to keep it competitive; this is a horse of a different color.

I agree with you, it sounds silly.

Well it was Casey in the other USDGC thread, post #730 in that thread. Here you go...

"Actually it was the Course being so tight due to skinny in bounds, not so much putter only/friendly course being what helped James Conrad, this is where James Conrad Shines is on Courses that are long and tight with OB. That and trying to make the course penalize Paul McBeth due to going from Innova to Discraft by going to where Paul Normally wants to go on the Older OB markings that did not help most of the rest of the field. You saw some who play well on tight courses almost win but for the majority of the players the course was just tight and badly designed for some of the OB. Of course the Odd weather could have played a factor on some of the players as well."

Go to the USDGC thread in the tourney sub and go back until you find it...I’ll give you three guesses who proposed this theory lol

True. I was mostly referring to the back end of the event. Especially round 4. Paul missed cash by 5 shots. I understand the conditions, and maybe he was babying his ankle somewhat extra - but if Paul is trying his damnedest to grind out a cash he's not going to be taking an early 656 stretch (on holes he'd done okay on hurt the days prior) and then ramping up a 600' water carry attempt the next hole. He didn't play like Paul trying to just play competitive while hurt.
