Default 2015 United States Disc Golf Championship

After watching Smashboxx's podcast with the one and only Paul McBeth, I think this might be his year. What a way it would be to end an incredible season.

It's a hump he has to get over that is for sure.

I really think it is too. He really played like garbage on the final round last year and still had an opportunity to win. If he puts the kind of tournament together like all the other events he's killed this year it won't even be close. The only way for him to loose is for him to put together 1 horrible day, which I just don't see. Lord help his competitors if he wins the ledge stone and HoFC Between now and then.

That lingering injury could be a problem if it's still bothering him in another month

I'd like to see Lizotte continue his smart play from the ledgestone -- I think he's got what it takes to win a USDGC.

Considering that Simon said he never used to practice, and the one time he practiced he won the Ledgestone.....

I'd like to see Will bounce back and win again, but I'd be happy with a Ricky or Simon win too.

This is an odd year, and Will only wins in even years ... so no-go for him

Paul will take it. Ledgestone was a big deal but if mcbeth has his eyes on usdgc, he will win.

If anything it helped remind him that he was in such a good spot at the USDGC because he was playing aggressively but inside the ropes. When he let up on that focus, things slipped away faster than expected. I say he not only takes the USDGC, but does it handily. To the point where it's similar to running up the score in football.

When asked about whether a 5th straight Worlds, or USDGC would mean more, Paul could not answer. He wants this, BADLY.

Personal guess; he misses winning the HOFC (3 round event and he's looking to the usdgc and not taking it seriously) and absolutely smokes the usdgc.
