Gotta be rooting for my boy, Steve Rico. He finished t2 last year with Barry right behind Brinster so he does have the game to get this course.

Brinster has finished 1, 3, and 5 the past 3 years of the USDGC, and top 10 in Worlds the past 4 years(2012 he was top 10 before leaving final round for the birth of the twisters). Feldy and Will S are the only other two players that can say they have top 10 in both events over that same time span.

I don't want to take anything away from Steve Brinster. He seems like an awesome guy, and he played well last year. But Will fell apart. Barry had a few bad holes that cost him. Doss didn't play to his best level. Rico faltered.

There are athletes in every sport, that if they are playing their very best, they are unstoppable. We've seen that from Paul McBeth, and Climo before him. Ricky has that sort of game as well. He's scary good when everything is clicking.

I think you would agree that Brinster, although a great disc golfer, is not at the same level.

Having said that, it would be sweet to have him shut me up and win back to back.

Um yeah I disagree, did you miss those stats finishing #1, #3, and #5 in the past 3 USDGCs... Brinster only beat McBeth last year and the year before and the year before at USDGC. You can talk all you want about other players falling apart when Brinster wins, but fact is it happens in every tournament to everybody(except Climo). So when McBeth wins it's only because he is the greatest ever, right? Except when he loses at USDGC. Brinster had some bad holes and still won!

"I don't want to take away...but so and so fell apart." What a bunch of BS.

Then we can just agree to hold differing opinions.

This year's picks:
1. Brinster (back to back)
2. Ricky (sticking with my Greg Norman comparison)
3. Feldy (hangin around, kid's got alligator blood)
4. Will (having a down year, but always does well here)
5. McBeth (best USDGC finish of his career so far)
6. Doss (steady goes it)
7. Nikko or Big Jerm (unsteady goes it)
8. McCray (sick turbo putt to tie 8th)
8. Shultz (that's not sick)
8. Rico (plays too conservative)
