No, Nate Doss. Sorry, forgot about the layup king, Nate Sexton.

Or Cam Todd. He won the GBO this year, and no talk of him which is even more peculiar.

McCabe had an injury earlier this year.

Yeah, he could def finish top 20. But a part-timer isn't gonna win Worlds, no matter how well they know the tracks.

McCabe designed both courses being used by MPO. He has been posting about how he's feeling good about this week. Hopefully the injury is behind him! It helps him that they are only playing 1 round a day, thats for sure.

Maybe I'm missing something but the discussion here makes no sense. This is world's, it's a showcase for the top players in the world' but it doesn't showcase their talents so it's a bombfest. The PDGA approved this venue correct. Couldn't part of the selection process be to manipulate one or more courses to fit the top players? Now change that couldn't to shouldnt....

If this can be done at USDGC and other venues, that should be the norm.

I like either Nate as a contender, tbh. And I agree that Bradley Williams is poised to make some noise.

Also wouldn't be surprised to see EMac use the home field advantage. He's apparently been shredding during practice rounds.

Since we were talking coverage earlier in the thread, allow me to give a plug to the Jomez next-day vids. I'll be doing commentary on them with Nate Sexton, and Overstable Studios is handling graphics. Should be a nice package for those who can't tune in live. Ultiworld Disc Golf will also be doing the usual daily tournament coverage on the ground in Emporia, and we'll be doing daily podcasts from the Country Club from Wednesday through Saturday.
