Is McCray even remotely relevant anymore? Other than name recognition?

You could say that about 90% of the players out though.

Also Latitude 64 has Justin from Rapid City South Dakota who is getting better over the last few years but has yet to tour full time even on the big A tier circuit. Justin is in the lower ranks of teams still due to not touring much or PDGA Ranking being that high. I think he wants to win everything PDGA sponsored in South Dakota and closest non South Dakota tournaments in a single year before going to the next level.

Yes John E McCray is still relevant. I saw this year at a top level A tier that McCray almost beat Paul McBeth due to how tight the course was, being a brush in the rough style course. Tournament was in either Florida or just over into Alabama done the week after the Throw Down the Mountain, as no NT/PT events were going on in the weekend John E McCray and Paul McBeth were playing in the top level A tier event.

Amongst Pro Masters he is & will be for a long while. I'd bet he can still step into MPO when chooses & still make noise.

His name is Emerson Keith and it is nice to see a player who is under 130 pounds or 58 kilograms that can still compete at a high level. I thought all the very small players era was over, and players had to be 130 pounds or 58 kilograms and up.

Emerson Keith. Trilogy as a whole aren't busted. Nikko, Emerson Keith, McCray, Clemons, and Tamm are all really good players capable of big wins. Tamm is really the guy to keep tabs on IMO. He can become a "no weaknesses" kind of player in no time. And he has the personality and game to become very marketable.

I forgot that Westside had just signed independent Nikko Locastro who had just a single disc sponsor as his previous major disc sponsor with the Wizard. Not sure with the Magic or what ever new putter Nikko was using this year 2019 if he had the sponsor like he did with the Nikko Wizard, now under a new name for the old mold Wizard with the original type top.

No he is not rail thin but his height is at 5 foot 4 inches or so, 2 inches taller then me so it is possible to be at 130 pounds or around that and not look skinny.
