Unhappy Alas poor MacBeth, we hardly knew ye

Disclaimer 1) I know its spelled McBeth, it makes the play on words more...pompous? No, that cant be it

Disclaimer 2) Im either committing the vilest heresy or saving saving the brightest star in DG

Disclaimer 3) I wasnt paying attention to DG until last year so I didnt experience 2012-2015 for all the historical perspective

OK, here we go: McBeth is done. I predict hell be 1030 rated before hes ever 1050 rated again; if he is ever rated that high again. No DGPT or NT first places the rest of the year and more finishes out of the top 10 than in. I cant tell you how painful it is to type this: Dont waste your Skip Ace picks.

I feel sick and sad and I hope Im wrong and I hope every last poster tears me to pieces with acerbic wit and irrefutable arguments against. And if anyone mentions marriage or wife, may you be blessed with the peaceful relationship you deserve

Let the flaming begin!

Well, I think we enjoy jumping the gun. He’s had a slow start this season, sure. This is his second not top ten finish this year.

I suppose it’s important to say: He is Paul McBeth. He’s going to win. He does that.

He’s got more wins than Rick this year, thus far, also.

He’s not going anywhere.

But go Eagle!!

Look how many guys averaged 1040+ this week...

Its a whole new ballgame and they aint skeer'd of him anymore... But i'd say its very premature to write him off. Eventually, he will get pissed off enough to go into cyborg mode... Sorry Hannah, but I need to practice, lol...

Paul is still the best stamina golfer (bring back the extra rounds at worlds) and multi course tournament pro on tour. The field is catching up with higher level of play combined with only needing to learn one course which levels the playing field even more.

To the OP:
youre counting out a guy, who just today, covered 550 feet off the tee and hit a 100+ uphill jump putt for eagle. Silliness

Thanks for the spoiler!! . . Not!

Been out of town and I was going to catch up and watch the post event coverage, now I don't know if I will. Never cared for the GBO much anyway.

GBO was boring before they went to 3 rounds on the same course. I'm very much looking forward to edited FPO coverage this week (if there is any, Terry was doing booth commentary)

I think DinosaurThunder brings up a very good point though. And another reason why the best pure disc golfers can rip on any course they step on. DG should be treated less like ball golf in this sense - more courses and variety can and should be a test for pros more often - Not just who can figure out the course faster.

Don't have a link at the moment, but CCDG was filming FPO and have the 1st, maybe the 2nd rounds up.
