Thought that drill was mainly for forehands.

Not at all. Spending your days doing manual repetitive labor isn't the way an athlete should be spending their down time. That often leads to cumulative trauma and tissue damage over time.

Pro athletes nowadays spend their downtime getting treatment, yoga, and working on sport specific skills.

Having manual labor day jobs was not good for those old school players like Kenny and pretty much all the players pre 2012ish.

I know the champ can't really play much anymore and hasn't since 2016. I'm sure a career throwing frisbees contributed some to that but I'd wager being a day laborer contributed to that as well.

Hey man, he may win 10 for all I know, but I think once PMcB's heyday is over, there won't be anyone as dominant again, at least not for a long time.

Does anyone know right off how many tournaments Paul has won this year? How many played versus how many won?

He is 13/21 this year, with five second place finishes, and no finishes outside of the top ten.

I don't know, there are some very quality young players out there. Read of Gannon Buhr who is only 14 years old and a 1000 rated player. I enjoy watching those young kids develop. True, pre-20015 not many dreamed of being pro disc golfers because it was not financially plausible. These days more. 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.
