He's not looking like he's going to be a factor at World's regardless of the venue.

Of course he didn't seem like he was going to be a factor last year, either. So what do I know?
Barsby & Bejerkas as of the latest update, are at their highest rating....ever. So they are still playing decent golf, it's just the players above them are taking it to another level.

It was interesting to see some of the pros putting with drivers on Sunday. MJ was putting with his machete when the wind was really bad. I saw others putting with drivers as well, it's a good skill to have but I bet not many amateurs practice putting with drivers.

As one of the top professional athletes in his field, that just seems strange to me.

He has always been hot and cold. He hates playing in wind/poor conditions and has had elbow issues. But when he is healthy and dialed in, he can compete with anybody.

Separating Barsby from Bjerkaas for a second... like Three-Putt said, Barsby had the tournament of his life right at the correct moment: 2018 Worlds. Sure he might compete at that level again, might win more tournaments. But that Worlds was more like Shaun Micheel or Ben Curtis winning ball golf majors.

Earlier this year, Paige Bjerkaas was playing like she belonged in the FPO Top 3. She was throwing strong and putting confidently and well. And I think (and hope) she can and will continue to do so. At the DLIO, Paige P finished 20-something ahead of EVERYONE except the Black Canary (Catrina), so I won't read too much into Paige B's relatively bad tournament...

He's a vegan, they have strange super powers!

Eat a hamburger stick boy, the protein will help!

Exact thing I thought when I watched the video with Cory. If I made my living throwing frisbees my first stop after I left the tournament would have been to see a medical professional to find out what the situation is.
