Default McBeth Will Not Be Playing USDGC?

Did I miss this discussion? I looked around but couldn't find anything. On this weeks AnhyzerTV podcast they said he was given a timeline by his doctors that he could either start the season early and have to end it in August or start later and play the rest of the season. His ankle injury being the issue.

He decided to start now and play thru Ledgestone. Which means he will miss out on Iron Hill, Music City, Maple Hill, GMC, USDGC and the DGPT finale.

Kind of hard to believe I am the first person to bring this up.



They talk about it briefly starting at 3:30...They showed a still image of his Instagram with his explanation but I can't seem to find it...

I think if we plays well and stays healthy in the early season we could see him changing his mind on a couple of those tournaments.

Could be but he should follow his docs advice. Sucks if he doesn't get to plays those great events but he's got to look out for his future first and foremost. Can't say I really blame him wanting to start now. I know how I got sitting around with all the ankle injuries I've had and wish I wouldn't have pushed to get back so soon a couple times. My ankle is probably permanently damaged at this point.

Keep the brace on and be careful on those jump putts around obstacles...

Most likely reason is that he wants to be fully prepared for worlds. If he's only able to play half a season he's going to pick the half that gives him the best shot of winning that tournament.

Have to agree, worlds is what Paul is aiming for, rest are not that important.

Has anyone had any type of injury that a Dr said - "Don't rest now, when much closer to when the actual incident occurred, but later after doing the thing that hurt you for 6 months THEN rest it again"??

I've broken/strained/tore way too many body parts in the last 40 years or so and never heard of anything close to this. Interested to see if anyone else ever has.

I think it was an either or situation not a don't rest now situation. From what I've read, it seems he can't really make the injury worse, so when thinking about both 2020 season and 2021 season, his options were play the front half-ish of the season and then shut it down, get his rest/surgery if needed, and he'll have plenty of time to heal for 2021 or shut it down now and miss most of 2020.

This path allows him to play most of the big events in 2020 and be ready for 2021 vs coming back late in 2020 and having to get his groove back when everyone else is already in mid-season form.

That’s probably it. The last time I needed shoulder surgery, my ortho gave me a similar option. Whenever we do the surgery, we’ll fix whatever else is wrong (at the time, we knew from a previous MRI I had at least a rotator cuff tear). I played three more months of baseball, dislocated the shoulder (non-throwing) virtually every game because I played with reckless abandon because I was planning on the surgery at the end of the year, no matter what. Somewhere I have a picture of the aftermath of me diving around the catcher where you can see my shoulder out of socket.

At the end, I had surgery. Torn rotator cuff, torn labrum, torn AC joint and detached biceps. I missed six weeks of work (and I have a desk job). You can probably guess at what point in the story I wish I had made a different decision

If hes playing hot like he has, wins everything like he is wont to do, I wonder how well he can honor the deal and call it off when supposed to. But yeah seems funny how they can see into to future like that.

Anyone taken a look at what manufacturers are the lead sponsors and looked at how well Mcbeth has played those courses as possible factors in understanding his tour plan?
