1. McBeth
2. Wysocki
3. Kevin Jones
4. JConrad

1. Cat Allen
2. H. King
3. Tattar

Hot-Takes:

- McBeth - Has something to prove in 2021 beyond his already vast accomplishments of the past - I think something is burning and about to burst.

- Pierce - Can not avoid the "hero-shots" in the woods and pays for it.

- JC - can keep up on the golf course enough to score hot in the woods. No side-arm keeps him from top 3.

- Eagle and Hammes out of top 10 due to temperament.

- Kevin Jones looks like every Frat-Boy I have ever tussled' with - I will forgive him for that and predict that he puts together 5 rounds of "boring" (consistent) golf. Look for that Circle2 putt to shine in the woods.

- Simon in the top 10.

- Lloyd Weema gets and exemption in and places top 217th.

This! What a great time to bring Mr. Weema back to top-tier disc golf. Not just great for us fans, but for all of humanity.

If you think that's hyperbolic, consider the following:

It was late in 2019 that the PDGA adopted the Lloyd Weema [Exclusion] Rule. They claimed to be fixing a "problem," but in reality there was no problem. It was a fairly blatant move to poop in Weema's oatmeal.

And with that "problem" having been "fixed," look how great 2020 turned out. Thanks, PDGA.

In all seriousness, this was a problem that needed to be fixed.

It's outrageous that anyone could play our pro world championship. *Insert stereotypical comment about other pro sports, like golf, don't work that way*

It's honestly unfair to play with someone 200-250 points below your rating. Slows your rhythm, you don't get wind reads like other groups, etc.

For an organization like the PDGA that is constantly criticized for lack of professionalism towards the pro game, this move was absolutely a step towards that.

I don't think that The Fort offers a ton of C2 looks, it seems either you are on the green in C1 or scrambling. Not to mention, KJ's ultra-low reachback on his straddle putts are not conducive to putting in and around brush.

I think Mulligan's is going to offer a ton more C2 looks and that's why I also disagree with your Hammes prediction. While the kid has always been known around the Midwest as an extreme hot-head, his C2 putting is World-class.

Also, another point about Mulligan's, it doesn't appear you need the Elite distance to score here like other Bolf courses. Just look at Dana Vicich's 1077 rated round at the 2017 Utah open and it's apparent anyone can get hot here. I think we may just see a few names sneak into the top 20 that aren't the usual suspects.

Seems a lot of guys are playing exceptionally well IMO.

Lots of potential for a variety of guys to have hot round(s).

I’d say if you go in the overall vibe if this year, Ricky is the easy pick. His game seems in point in every aspect.

OTOH, I think Paul was a little off early on this year, but seems to be getting it dialed.

And those are the two guys that have dealt with the pressure repeatedly and come out on top.

I would be very surprised if anybody else took the title in MPO.

PP is definitely planning to scorch the FPO.

Bogey's "outside the box, but not completely crazy"picks: Calvin Heimborg and Hailey King.

Who do I want to win? KJUSA & Cat

Who do I think will win? Ricky and PP.

Would it surprise me if McBeth wins # 6?
My flabber wouldn't be completely gasted.

Ricky and Eagle are both on fire right now, and Paul plays exceptionally well in big events. That said, it seems to me that Calvin tends to play better in later rounds than early ones, so the 5-round format could work to his advantage. I think this could be Calvin's year.

It's hard to bet against Paige right now, but anything could happen. Kristin, Cat, Sarah & Hailey all have a chance. I'm a fan of PP and I'd be happy to see her win, but I would be really stoked to see Kristin take this one down.

I keep going back to what Paul has said about putting being the big indicator for who will perform well at Worlds. While Ricky's game has been looking pretty great overall, his putting has seemed a little lackluster (for him) in the last few events. I'm sure he's working on it every single day so he's certainly still contend.

Meanwhile, Paul's putt is looking more and more dialed. If he's got the confidence to knock down putts like on hole 18 during the final round of the Portland Open, I'm taking him as the favorite to win.

Adam Hammes's putt is looking pretty great as well and I think he'll have a strong start but have trouble with consistency down the stretch. I expect the Fort will test his mental game more than any other course so far this season.

Eagle's putting wasn't great on the front 9 of the final round at Portland Open but he looks like he's one minor adjustment away from being in perfect form. Hard to say he couldn't win it but I've also been watching him on golf courses the last few weeks. I wonder how his touch game is feeling.

My sleeper pick is Simon. He cruised to a top 10 finish at Portland Open while playing pretty mediocre. Like Eagle, he looks to be one or two minor adjustments away from a near-perfect game. His sample size is a lot smaller for this season though so I could be way off. However, I honestly think Simon playing more conservative, 'boring' golf could smoke the rest of the field, and I think his touch game is better than Eagle and Ricky's and probably only rivaled by Paul. If his putt is dialed in by next week, don't be surprised to see Simon at the top.
